Rose Cup - Menstrual Cup By Intimate Rose | Review

I have been dealing with periods since I was 8 years old. I have mostly stuck to using pads because I never liked tampons. I always heard about TSS and it just frightened me too much to even risk it. A few years ago when I started seeing menstrual cups on the market, I was very eager to try them. So I did. I have found that they can either be wins or fails. Every vagina is different, shaped different, and different sized. I have used just about every name brand menstrual cup you can find on store shelves, and have found only 1 to work really well for me. So going into this review, I will say that I am not new to menstrual cups, I am quite seasoned.

I ordered this menstrual cup in the small size, I am 27 years old, and I have never given birth. In all the brands of menstrual cups I am always the smallest size. When this arrived, it was slightly larger than my other menstrual cups, but not by too much. About a week after this arrived in the mail, so did my period. I was excited to try this out and see how it would compare to my favorite cup. It is a flexible cup, and does fold easily. Upon first use, I washed it with feminine wash, and then inserted it. It took me a few minutes to get this cup inside. I tried putting the cup in by pushing down on one side and creating what I call a rose bud shape, then I tried making the C shape. Both ways I could not get the cup to release from these positions once inside. I tried inserting in every position I could think of, but still no luck. My personal thought is that this cup is just too big for me. If it was a little smaller perhaps it would fit a bit better and more securely. To make sure that it wasn't just me having a difficult day, I grabbed 3 of my other menstrual cups and inserted them. I didn't have any issues at all. So I gave it a rest for the day. Next day I figured I'd try again. No go. I would get the cup in, but it just wouldn't unfold from its insertion position. I have never had this problem with any of my other cups, so I took to Google to see if there are others having this problem with menstrual cups. Apparently it is a issue for many women, especially those who are smaller down below. Basically from what I read, some cups will work with you, and other cups just won't.

I think it could be great for some women, and others like me, it might not work out. Its worth a try, and perhaps if you are new to these, I'd recommend purchasing both sizes so you can see which one may fit you best. I don't think this is a bad cup by any means, I just think that this is one of those personal products that really just depend on your body type.


  1. Menstrual cups emit certain signs that they are not embedded legitimately with the principal immense pointer being spillage. In the event that the cup is spilling, it in all likelihood isn't embedded sufficiently and you may need to expel and reinsert it a few times previously knowing your body and the correct fit.If you want to know more, Please check out here: Reusable Menstrual Cups
