Lena Menstrual Cup – Reusable Period Cup
Lena is one of the most popular menstrual cup brands on the market. While this is a perfect introduction for those switching to menstrual cups, it is also the highest rated among dedicated users. The premium silicone-based cup is odorless, dye-free and sensation-free, resulting in a clean and comfortable menstrual cycle.
The bell-shaped cup can be worn for up to 12 hours and collects blood without drying out your vagina like tampons and tampons, which have also been linked to rashes and yeast infections. It comes in small and large to suit different bodies and flow levels, and comes in three pretty pastel colors. Once disinfected and well maintained, the Lena Cup can last for several years. Amazon reviewers agree, giving this mug over 5,000 5-star reviews. The Lena mug features a bell-shaped design that is meant to fit snugly to prevent leakage. Handles on the stem and base of the cup make removal easy.
The Lena mug is a bit wider and much smoother than most mugs available. La Lena feels good; the silicone it is made of is really smooth and makes it easy to insert and remove. Its wider design also helps prevent leakage for those with a wide vagina, and the strong shaft does not collect any blood or other tissue, so it is easier to clean than some of the hollow rod cups.
The DivaCup Model 2 Menstrual Cup
- Reusable Period Cup: Say goodbye to tampons and pads with comfortable, eco-friendly protection
- Silicone Menstrual Cup: Made of 100% medical grade silicone with no chemicals, plastic or dyes
- Made For You: Ideal for women over 35, that have a heavier flow or have given birth vaginally
The Diva Cup is a household name when it comes to menstrual cups and was the most popular choice of our panel of consumer testers. Our testers mainly used the “Model 1” size, but there are also sizes 0 and 2 for those with lighter and heavier throughput, respectively. Note that the stem is open on the Diva Cup which can make it harder to clean and it cannot be cut to size.
For nearly two decades, Diva Cup has made the rules easier with its efficient and easy-to-use cup. We love this company for their inclusive sizes for teens and those who have given birth vaginally. As a certified B Corp that puts people, profit and the planet first, this brand offers the perfect alternative to tampons and pads. (And it’s one of the only brands to offer a herbal cleanser to wash your mug.)
The DivaCup is the cut most people start with, but we think it’s actually not a great starter cut as it’s one of the longest we’ve tested, which means anyone having a medium or short neck might find it uncomfortable. But if you have a high neck, the DivaCup works great, feels soft and comfortable, and contains a lot of blood. It has a hollow rod, which can collect blood and other tissue more easily than the solid rods, but we don’t think that is a deciding factor.

The Super Jennie is sold to women who have heavy periods. The mug has a large fluid capacity and can hold up to 41.61 milliliters (the small one can hold up to 31.99 milliliters), while other large mugs tend to only hold around 30 milliliters. If you tend to have a heavier period, this cut may be right for you. For heavier flows, a larger menstrual cup is a necessity – and this is where Super Jennie comes in. The 100% medical-grade silicone menstrual cup is designed to eliminate any leaks thanks to its thick rim that creates a tight seal around the cervix. The Super Jennie Cup holds 1.4 ounces of fluid without creating heaviness or discomfort throughout the day.
If you’re already comfortable with menstrual cups, but looking for the perfect cup for heavy flow, this one is up to the challenge. The large size can hold over 40ml of liquid, keeping you leak-free on days of more intense flow.
