Has Anyone Tried This New Menstrual Cup

I'm posting here for traffic
I've wanted to try menstrual cup for ages but the horror stories of it getting stuck inside/hard to remove , seal inside hard to break, etc puts me off
And then today I saw this cup online (keela cup) if you pull on the stem it breaks the seal inside and makes removal simple...also the stem can be short, medium or long (you can customise it each time you insert it)...it looks in theory like it would be easy to use and remove....but has anybody here tried it?

Following with interest! Love my moon cup but removing it is certainly a bit of a chore!

I used my moon cup at the weekend for the first time in a while, and getting it out was a nightmare!!! This looks really good.

I feel like that pullstring might chafe as it surely must hang out

As far as I can tell, they are only available to pre order with delivery expected end of October and at £40 I would prefer to buy one that's available now.

I think you can extend it or retract it until it's comfortable....the pull the stem and break the seal bit is the bit that has interested me the most,
SuchAToDo · 02/10/2018 22:45
But we are in October now and many places have delivery that can take 14-28 days, so end of October is not unreasonable and wouldn't take long since we are in October now

On the site it's $39.90 us dollars...if you type it into the exchange rate that is just over £30 (it came up as £30.70)

Like the look of it, would maybe help with my menopausal tsunamis, but will wait to hear some reviews first

I could buy one from boots online and get it delivered next day.

And yes I agree with BrokenWing, would like to read other peoples reviews before buying.

Meh, I have a Mooncup already which I love (as much as you can love any sanitary protection).
Surely they’re all much of a muchness- if you don’t get on with what’s already on the market, I’m not sure another brand would make much difference.

I bloody love my menstrual cups. I have a moon cup but actually much prefer the cheap ones I got from Amazon for £1.19 or something. The first thing I do is chop off the long bit you pull on to get it out...it chafes like hell. This looks awful.

That's not really true. They vary a LOT in size, as well as flexibility, which make a big difference in terms of which will suit any individual. OP, I highly recommend Precious Stars Pads on Youtube. She has some really excellent videos comparing different cups and also giving help on using them, especially when you're just getting started.
I used to have a Lunette and I now have a Tulip Cup and a Mooncup (though I hardly ever use the Mooncup, because it's really too big for me). I've never ever had a problem with one getting stuck inside, and breaking the seal is easy when you understand how to do it (not by just pulling at the stem). I've been using one for years and I wouldn't go back to tampons if you paid me.

Well, someone has to try, OP
If it’sgood let us know and I’ll buy! Would be handy bot to have to faff with taking mine out at work.
dinosaurkisses · 02/10/2018 23:15
What I mean is that if you try one and it doesn’t work for you because you don’t like rummaging around up there, or find it a faff cleaning etc, then regardless of what brand you try it’s fundamentally the same method of collection.
I get what you mean about different sizes etc- I was lucky in that the first brand and shape I tried was perfect.

Is there much difference in your opinion between the different brands of menstrual cups you have tried?...there are so many brands out there it's hard to know which to try
SuchAToDo · 03/10/2018 01:13
I'd be interested in reviews too especially if it could handle heavy periods
