Review of the Pretty Woman Menstrual Cup
The Pretty Woman Menstrual Cup is a cheap menstrual cup (under $15) that appears to be a recent addition to the menstrual cup world. My guess, simply due to the price is that it’s manufactured in China, although there’s very little information about it. Another major consideration is that there is very little real information about sizes. All we’re told in the product information is that there is a Size 1 (pre-childbirth) and Size 2 (post-childbirth) option.
On Amazon, the Pretty Woman Menstrual Cup has a very low 3.7/5 star rating. Compare this to something like the Anigan Evacup with a 4.4/5 star rating, the Lena Cup at 4.7/5 or the Lunette Cup coming in at 4.5/5 stars.
Pretty Woman Menstrual Cup Negatives:
- Very flimsy. Many women couldn’t get this menstrual cup to open properly once inside of them. This was the case even for some experienced period cup users.
- Lack of information about the size of cups (diameter, length, etc.)
- Lack of information about where it’s made
- Very long, even if you trim the stem
- Some questions about whether or not it’s made from medical grade silicone (reports of allergic reactions)
The Takeaway on the Pretty Woman Menstrual Cup:
Menstrual cups are amazing for a whole lot of reasons, including plenty of environmental and health benefits, not to mention how much cheaper they are over the long-run when compared to pads and tampons. However, the Pretty Woman Menstrual Cup is not so amazing! It appears to be a flimsy, cheaply-made product from China (similar to the Vida Cup or the Hengsong Cup).
You’d be much better off spending $10-15 more and getting yourself a quality product that is indeed made from the highest quality medical grade silicone according to the highest manufacturing standards. A good place to start your search for a top-quality menstrual cup would be this list:
