The world’s first collapsible, compact menstrual cup can save you £££s on tampons and pads
Can you guess how many tampons the average woman uses in a year? It’s been calculated that 1,625 tampons a year are used; now that’s a lot for just one woman! On average, a woman menstruates 2,470 days in her life time, that’s adds up to around 12,000 disposable menstrual products – for just one woman!
We don’t mean to alarm you, but that’s a LOT of pennies you could save (remember those to-die-for shoes you saw on the internet last week…). Not only are you saving pounds on tampons and sanitary towels by using a menstrual cup, you are saving the environment from disposable waste. It has been estimated that all the disposable sanitary products that are used by women across the world, can weigh up to 6x the Titanic’s weight. We know – it’s outrageous!
So, what’s the solution? After all, a penny saved is a penny earned. Introducing, Intimina:
Why is the Intimina Lily Cup Compact perfect for you?
That’s why the Lily Cup Compact is perfect; the only menstrual cup that is collapsible and comes in its own compact case that is the size of a lip balm tin. It’s discreet, convenient, and reusable, you can keep it in your handbag for whenever you need it. Just don’t mistake it for the lip balm, okay?Are you forever running out of tampons? Or maybe you have hundreds in your handbag because you’re unsure as to when your next monthly misery is due (guilty!). We are sure that no woman enjoys having sanitary products left in their hand bag for anyone to see. Who would want to know that Aunt Flo is visiting?!
Not only is the menstrual cup convenient for you to use for every period, it’s healthier and extremely more hygienic for you. Tampons are designed with pesticides, dioxins, fragrances and furans that are extremely harmful to your body, not only are they created with these risky toxins, a tampon and sanitary towels job is to absorb. Absorbents in this area can be damaging and can affect your intimate health
The Lily Cup Compact cup does just that; instead of absorbing, it collects. Ensuring that you are comfortable with no strings or padding – you will forget that you are even wearing it! And that’s okay, because the menstrual cup is designed to keep you covered for 10 hours. Unlike tampons, you should change every 4 hours to reduce the risk of intimate discomfort or even Toxic Shock Sydrome.
Its clever design ensures that any woman is able to use the menstrual cup, from light to heavy flow – from first period to menopause. The menstrual cup is made from 100% body-safe medical grade silicone that is soft and flexible; it can even be rolled down to the shape of a tampon making insertion easy! It’s so convenient that you can wear it for 10 hours, worry free – even on your heaviest day.
To ensure that you have the perfect size, the Lily Cup Compact comes in two sizes; A and B. Size A Cups are for those who have not given birth or those who have given birth by caesarean. Sizes B are for those who have given birth naturally, have a weaker pelvic floor.
No wonder 9/10 women who use menstrual cups say they would recommend it to others - they really are the future to pure protection.

- Great product- very happy : ) Review by Lotus
Having made another change, I have recently begun to have a short, regular cycle again but realised I had thrown away my Moon Cup some time ago. I decided to see if there were any other options out there (I thought my Moon Cup was great and would return to using one, but wondered if there were other options now).
I went for the Intimina Lily Cup Compact, size B (I'm not sure my pelvic floor is in great shape, despite not having had children and superficially, I liked the bright pink colour better than the pale). I ordered it a couple of days ago and chose express UPS delivery in the hope that it would arrive in time to get some benefit from it this month. It arrived promptly this morning and I am already sold. When it comes back into stock, I am going to order a couple of spares.
I started using menstruation cups in the past because I kept forgetting to have tampons in my bag, or, not enough to see me through the day. I loved the flexibility of being able to insert the Moon Cup, change it periodically and no longer be worried about being caught out or leaks. It's marginally less convenient to remove, clean and re-insert in public toilets or places, but I used to make sure I did this before leaving the house in the morning, when I returned and I used to try to find toilet cubicles with a wash hand basin inside while out of the house. From what I understand from information freely available, silicone menstruation cups do not pose the same threat from Toxic Shock Syndrome, so, whilst it's not advisable to leave it for a prolonged period with out removing and emptying the cup, I've found that, if the local facilities are not appropriate, it's fine to wait until they are with no health repercussions (only perhaps practical repercussions- the cup can get quite full if left for many hours un-emptied, which can make it a messier process to remove and clean).
With the Moon Cup, the thing I used to find difficult was, that the Moon Cup could take a while to 'break in' in the past, feeling stiff and a bit uncomfortable until the silicone became more flexible.
Also, the Moon Cup is made of a thicker silicone, I found that at times, it pressed on my bladder and limited the flow of pee when I used the toilet- this could feel a bit uncomfortable (none to remove your menstruation cup overtime you need to pee- if it's placed correctly and is comfortable, you can just crack on).
Having used the Intimina Lily Cup (the collapsible version) for a few hours now, I think it's great. It's a softer, thinner silicone, so no issues with breaking it in- it's comfortable straight from the off and for this reason doesn't seem to limit my pee flow or put pressure on my bladder.
It's collapsible and comes with a snap close case, for hygienic and convenient storage (I'd happily buy one just to keep in my handbag now, whereas I definitely wouldn't do this with non-collapsible versions).
I am unable at this point to make any comment about security and leakage issues, as I'm at the end of my cycle now and would need to use it more to be certain. Having said that, if it works as well as the Moon Cup, I would imagine there won't be any issues. Given that it's the end of my cycle now for this month, it's also worth noting that the softer silicone meant that there were no comfort issues with insertion, which I did used to experience with the Moon Cup.
All in all, so far, I'm impressed : ) I would give it 5/5 stars, but as yet, with me not knowing how the leak aspect will pan out, I will return to this review at a later date to see if I can add the last star and make a comment on this aspect.
I've been able to get straight on board with using the Initmina Lily Cup because I was so used to using a menstruation cup in the past- if you're new to the process, bear with it. It can take a little while to get the hang of quick, efficient and correct insertion and removal, but I would say the health benefits, the convenience, leak-free and long-term financial benefits really are worth persevering for.

- Replaced mooncup Review by Charlotte 8873
If you can handle the concept of cups like these, this is spot-on.
Highly recommended. (Posted on 7 April 2016)
- So so Review by Butter
After I use size A I felt a lot happier but I still found some problems.
I wouldn't recommend this product for those who are a beginner of menstrual cup. Because it could be folded inside if you don't know what you are doing. It may be fitted oddly. I bought other company's menstrual cup as well as Lily cup size A to find out what is more suitable for me. The other cup is just a common menstrual cup, no special function like this one. With a just simple touch, it unfolds inside easily. On the other hand this Lily cup, you should check rather it has completely unfolded or not by putting your finger around it and it is quite difficult to adjust it inside.
Lastly the blood smell stays. Which is really unpleasant. I washed this with feminine soap and boiled it but still the smell is there.
Folding function is really smart but in my experience that is just all about it.
I hope this is helpful. (Posted on 7 March 2016)
- Nice and small Review by CareBear
- attractive and great for day use Review by Raimos
- Great must try this! Review by Rosie
This is collapsible , my initial concern was that it might. collapse with fluid in and it get messy and go everywhere, that isn't the case. It is easy to insert and wear, and none of the nipping that inexperienced with their other cup.
Really pretty container means it looks just like a compact in my handbag and I love it. Am an absolute fan and convert to menstrual cups both for me and the e of reasons too. I have heavy periods, got fed up with super tampons drying me out and becoming uncomfortable when I changed them too regularly. The blurb says you can use up to 10 hours, I've used mine for a max of 8 so far and no leaks or problems, they are so easy to use and practical I wish more women shouted about them and got their teenage daughters into them as soon as possible" for someone like me too who is very active, it means I don't have to worry about changing as often say if I am out walking (sometimes we are gone all day)
Absolutely brilliant. Highly recommend and great customer service. Hope this review helps convince other women to try a cup and not get seduced by the tampon industry like I was for so many years. (Posted on 10 January 2015)
