Ten Quick Facts about the Intimina Ziggy Menstrual Cup
Let’s get to the facts! Keep on reading for 10 facts you need to know about the Ziggy Cup.
#1: It’s like the Reusable Soft Cup
If you wanted to have sex during your period, the Softcup used to be the best option. The only downside is that it’s disposable, which isn’t exactly eco-friendly, and it can also get expensive.
The Ziggy Menstrual Cup is very similar and design and function, but it’s reusable. Love it!
#2: Not Just for Period Sex
The Ziggy Menstrual Cup is promoted as a non-messy sex during period solution. But, you can use it all the time if you’d like to. Some people prefer it to tampons, or regular menstrual cups like the Diva Cup.
Try it out for yourself and see.

#3: Can be Worn for up to 12 Hours
You’re probably already used to changing your tampon every 8 hours in order to reduce your risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome.
The good news is that the Ziggy Menstrual Cup can be work for up to 12 hours. Love it? We sure do!
#4: Save Money, Hundreds of Dollars of It
Disposable period products like tampons, pads, or Softcups can cost thousands of dollars over a lifetime. By making the switch to reusables, you’ll be saving quite literally a couple thousand dollars over a lifetime.
Of course, make the switch early to enjoy maximum dollar savings, okay?
#5: You Won’t Feel it Inside You
If inserted correctly, you shouldn’t be able to feel the Ziggy Menstrual Cup inside of you. If you can, try removing it and inserting it again. Don’t settle for an uncomfortable menstrual cup!

#6: It’s Great for the Environment
Estimates vary, but it’s thought the average person uses 11,000-16,000 tampons during a lifetime.
Compare this to a menstrual cup which lasts for around five years on average. That’s 8 cups during a lifetime.
8 vs. 11,0000? I’ll take the 8 any day.

#7: Leak-Proof Double Rim
One of the things that we love about the Ziggy is the leak proof, double rim. It’s a big improvement when compared side by side to the Softcup.
Try it out for yourself and see the difference.

#8: One Size Only
Unlike most menstrual cups which come in at least two sizes (small and large), the Ziggy Menstrual Cup comes in only a single size. However, most people find that it works for them.

#9: Hypoallergenic, Medical Grade Silicone
The Ziggy Cup is made from medical grade silicone and is hypoallergenic. If you have allergies, or sensitive skin, try it out to see if you notice a difference.

#10: High Cervix? It May Not Work Well for You
If you have a high cervix, the Ziggy Menstrual Cup may not work that well for you. Not sure about your cervix height? Here’s how you can tell:
- Insert your index finger into your vaginal canal
- Can you touch your cervix easily with the tip of your finger? You have a low cervix.
- If you can you touch your cervix with your finger inserted partway, or fully, you have a regular cervix height.
- If you can’t touch your cervix with your finger fully inserted, you have a high cervix.
The reason why the Ziggy may not work well if you have a high cervix is that it sits right below it. You have to put it WAAAY up there. And to remove it, you have to hook it with your finger.
