I was a bit disappointed that the pretty box got squished in the mail, but furthermore, I love it. It now comes in a pretty purple bag which is different from the denim bag I saw on the online pictures.

It's MUCH smaller than I'd expected. I can't wait to try it out when I get my period. The punch-down fold looks the most comfortable.

Congrats on your 1st cup. It looks nice. I like how it is smooth and it looks like it is soft. I always wanted to try the MPower but I am unable to get one here in the U.S. I now have the MiaCup and I love it (Goldilocks Cup). I wish you all the best when you try it out. Happy cupping!

Thanks so much, I hope it will be a happy experience. You can actually get the Mpowercup from the website and they'll ship it to you wherever you live, you just need to email Glenda, the creator, who also manages the cup orders. I'm not from South Africa either. :)

Re: Hi
Oh really I didn't know that. When I saw South Africa only on the website I thought I couldn't get it. Plus I thought I read on here a while ago that they where band from the US? I guess I just assumed they would not sell one to US customers kind of how the MCUK use to be. Hum maybe I will think about getting one? I like that it is clear instead of having a color, for some reason I like to be able to see though the cup. Although, I promised myself I wasn't going to buy any more cups I have Five now. Hummm now you got me thinking. :)

Re: Hi
US retailers aren't allowed to sell them, but US consumers can buy them directly.

Re: Hi
Hello again! How do you like the Mpower cup? I have been curious since you got it. Is it comfy, how soft? What don't you like about if anything. Look forward to hearing back.

Re: Hi
The cup is great! It's really my first cup so I don't know what others are like. I struggled with getting it in at first because I am a virgin and the cup is quite stiff. I wouldn't use the word soft to describe it. I have learned that I have a low cervix but sometimes when I'm wearing the cup it goes just a tiny bit higher. I cut the stem off completely when I used my cup on my second cycle. It stuck out and I hated the feel of that so I cut it off completely and whenever I need to get the cup out I just push my muscles and use my fingers.

It's great to use when inside out too. I have a heavy flow so on my second day when it's the most then I just need to make sure to change it every 2 hours but all the other days I can leave it in for longer. It keeps my cramps away.

I just need to wash my hands a lot more often now, before and after removal. Feel free to ask more specific questions if I haven't given enough info. :)

Re: Hi
Hi thanks so much for responding. Since it is kind of stiff it must be easy to pop open. This has been helpful as I wanted the cup to lean more on a soft side as I like really soft although they can be tricky to open but I find them the most comfy. I am so glad you are enjoying your Mpower cup. Happy cupping :)

Re: Hi
Thank you! I wouldn't like a soft cup because my body tends to push down onto the cup. But the Mpower cup is quite stiff so it stays open inside me quite well.

Could you please put the photos behind a cut? They're quite large and it's causing my friends page to load very slowly. Thanks.

Why can't US retailers sell them?
