Vida Cup Pros and Cons: Mostly Cons!
The Vida Cup is another one of those menstrual cups that makes a claim that it is “FDA approved.” While the silicone they use may be, this cup is not (as far as I know) on the list of FDA approved menstrual cups. This company does not have a website and so there is very little real information about the Vida Cup with regards to manufacturing process or dimensions/capacity. It’s very similar in price, and design to products like the Blossom menstrual cup and the Athena Cup.
Although the Vida Cup does have a 4.6/5 star rating on Amazon, this perhaps should not entirely be trusted. It is easy enough to pay for reviews and it appears that many companies in the period cup world are indeed doing this.
Two Sizes of Vida Cups:
Vida Cup Pros:
- The price. It’s cheaper than many of the other period cups on the market today.
- It’s manufactured in Germany. However, it looks exactly like the cheap menstrual cups you can see on Alibaba made in China.
- The Amazon rating of 4.6/5 is very good, but it perhaps shouldn’t be entirely trusted.
Vida Cup Cons:
- There is a lack of real information. The company appears to not have an official website.
- Some/many of the reviews on Amazon appear to have been paid for and the 4.6 rating is likely not accurate.
- There is a money-back guarantee, but I’m not sure how you’d claim this if there isn’t a real company behind this product. It’s not explained clearly on Amazon.
- Soft and bendy so it doesn’t snap into place easily. Can make it really difficult to get it to not leak.
- It’s clearly a rip-off of the Diva Cup. Get your own name!
If you’re going to spend around $20 on a menstrual cup, you’d be far, far better off just spending a few more dollars and getting a period cup from a far more reputable company. Some of the most trusted names in this world are: Diva Cup, Moon Cup, Lunette Cup, and Keeper Cup. These companies have all been around for years and their cups are manufactured in North America or Europe according to the highest quality standards from medical grade silicone (or latex for the Keeper).
