Hehe, hello all !

A new cup, made of medical grade silicone. Solid colours, apparently. It may look close to the Rainbow cup?
Cheers x

Oh boy, what a description!

The GentiShe Menstrual Cup is a healthy and environmentally friendly alternative to the management of sanitary hygiene. Made of medical-grade silicon, it is latex-free and safe to be used by women of all ages and sizes, even virgins.

I like how small it looks in one of the pictures, though - unless that person's hand is very big and it's all an illusion.

I was thinking the same thing, they look soo tiny! The capacity can't be great if they really are as tiny as they look, but would make for a nice light day cup. And all the colors!!!

Did anyone find measurements on the site? The stem looks nice and long--good for my high cervix--but if the overall size is super tiny it might just be an optical illusion. I like the turquoise though!

I've tried to keep it within reason, selling or trading for other cups I've wanted to try. I currently own six. In the first four years, I tried five cups. In the past year and a half, I've had fourteen others, since I finally had the means to hunt for 'goldilocks'!!

number of holes
The answer from the company to my question about the possible holes under the rim, on facebook :
"Yes,there are 4 holes under the rim to create a 'suction seal' onto the vaginal wall. The seal keeps the menstrual cup in place,so it does not shift but stays in one place.

Thank you very much."

Still from the company :
"Yes the holes are smaller but effective to create the seal on the vaginal wall. And the stem is a solid cylindrical. Our white is opaque not transparent."

"The dimensions are as follows: rim diameters: 45mm and 40mm,capacity to rim:30ml and 20ml,total length: 70mm and 65mm. Stem length:20mm"

About softness :
"No difference between small and large cups. They are both level 4 squashy. Not too soft nor too rigid."

The Gentis name
"Gentis is short version for Gentis Biosciences Pty Ltd. The English meaning is #Beginning Of"

Re: The Gentis name
And now there's a slogan, too, #BeginningOf4Eva.

"Eva is the first Female/Woman from the bible. The slogan says Beginning Of Forever and we gave it a bit of feminine vibe and call it #BeginningOf4Eva,as in the best thing for women to last forever."
