The Athena Menstrual Cup has a 4.7/5 star rating on Amazon and it’s one of the cheapest menstrual cups available on Amazon USA. While the product description on Amazon claims that the Athena Menstrual Cup is made from “100% Platinum Medical Grade US DOW Corning Silicone,” there is no real information about this product available and it seems like the company doesn’t even have a website.
It appears to be very similar to the Dutchess Cup in terms of price, design and that both of them seem to be manufactured in China.
2 Sizes of Athena Menstrual Cup:
People that Like the Athena Cup are Saying:
“It’s soft and flexible, but not too soft.”
“It was easy to use even for a first time user.”
Athena Menstrual Cup Pros:
- The price is certainly right. Many of the other cups like the Lunette, Moon Cup, or Diva Cup can run in the $30-40 range.
- There is a nice variety of colors (14).
Athena Menstrual Cup Cons:
- No real information is available on the Athena Cup and the company appears to not even have a website.
- Although the rating on Amazon is a very high 4.7/5, almost all the reviews appear to have been in exchange for a discounted or free menstrual cup. Some (many!) of the reviews are over-the-top and appear to have been paid for.
- The unbiased reviews are not that great. Many women mention that it’s too soft and flimsy and doesn’t open up properly, unlike the stiffer period cups which snap into place.
Although this cup is cheap, you get what you pay for. The Athena Menstrual Cup appears to be a copycat menstrual cup manufactured in China and although it may indeed be made from high-quality silicone, it is uncertain. The reviews on Amazon aren’t much help either because most of them appear to have been paid for.
You’d be better off spending a bit more money and buying a cup from a reputable company like Lunette, Moon Cup or Diva Cup that have been around a long time, have an established history, and are more up front about their product’s manufacturing.
