"I have tried various menstrual cups over the last couple of years and my Yuuki is definitely the best for me. It is slightly firmer than others I have tried so I find it is very easy to pop open and forms a good seal. The capacity is quite large so it means I can go the full 12 hours without having to change it even on my heavy days. It makes that time of the month so much more comfortable and easier."
Comfortable straight away
"Really surprised. I am only in the first 24 hours of using and straight away I am wondering why it's taken me so long to try. Comfortable straight away. A bit tricky to remove the first time but once you have mastered the knack it's quick & easy. Went swimming this morning with no worries. Not had any leaks. Would recommend and have to 2 people already! This one comes with a cup to clean it/store it so no need to buy anything else as I did."
First time user
"I was a little dubious about a cup & doubted one would stand up to my extremely heavy period & gruelling 12 hour shifts but I have to say I'm very very impressed. I went for this cup as it was the cheaper option just in case it wasn't for me, its a little firm & found it a bit uncomfortable at first but after a few days I soon got used to it & so convenient for work as getting to my bag is difficult at times. I find I have to empty it 4-5 times a day as I'm so heavy which is so much better than changing a pad hourly."
