Hello guys, Happy New Year!

So, I'm from Brazil and since I found very few posts about MissCup, I decided to make my own. I recently heard about menstrual cups and I thought it was a amazing idea. I've always hated pads. Really. Since my very first cycle, it irritates, itches and all those things. So when I started taking swimming classes, I decided to move to tampons, and that ended all my problems with pads. I really like the comfort from tampons but then new problems started to arise like, my vagina felt dry and having to change tampons every 4h ours because of TSS fear... that pissed me off.

And then, magically, I heard about menstrual cups. And thought it was too good to be true haha. To start, I'm 22, no virgin, no child and real comfort with my body and lady parts, so I wasn't afraid to try it. Doing some research, I discovered a little about the brands in market (Diva, Lunette, MeLuna, etc). My research led me to Inciclo online store, the new MissCup. I don't know when MissCup became Inciclo, but well, it has a new name now. Inciclo is a local brand but sells to other countries of South America as far as I know (and worldwide, through the site). In the older posts about MissCup, I read it was 4cm x 5,6cm (B size - small) and 4,3cm x 5,6cm (A size - large) without the steam (I cut mine entire because it pokes a lot) and it still has the same size today. I'm still new to this find-your-cervix thing, but I had no problems with Inciclo being a long cup. In fact, I think it's nice because in 5 days of flow I never had a problem to remove it using kegels and griping the base. It's stiff, to the point it's a little hard to make the half diamond fold (if I let go just a little, it pops out and jumps from my hand). But thanks to this I didn't have any problems to make it pop open using the 7-fold and didn't have any discomfort at all. The capacity is real good too. I have a pretty moderate cycle (always used small to medium tampons) and in the first two days of flow just filled about half cup after 12h of use. Also, I didn't have any leaking problems, except in the first night, when I found more blood in the toilet paper than the little spill that is considered normal. But I think I just didn't put it right because all went good in the second night.


Before buying, I watched some youtube videos and read blog posts about cups, then I found Inciclo facebook page and read the posts and comments. I have to admit that I feel a little sad because of the number of girls and women saying that wound't try it because of digust of their own blood. I saw a lot of them saying it was nasty and disgusting and thought the, despite we're already in 2015, there are still a lot of people in need of information. Thanks I found this community :D

To those who understand Portuguese, here are the online store and Fb page:

Thanks! Good to know its firmness. I think this is such a pretty cup with its simple lines and small rim. It also has unique dimensions, being both one the longest and narrowest cups. Should attract more customers once people know about it more.

You can contact the company directly and get a quote for international shipping.

humm, I have it too [ Brasileira aqui também, se quiser falar em português].
I like it more than Lunette, but, I think InCiclo is pretty soft when I tried a little rim comparison. But pops open as a charm, diamond fold really can make it fly hahaha
--funny thing: I see lots of people saying it's stiff and it makes me wonder... maybe a defect? Too soft InCilo? Too stiff Lunette?

So, are you saying that Inciclo is softer than Lunette? Never tried Lunette or other brands, it was more of a deduction. I thought inciclo was stiff after reading about other cups and seeing some complainings that they don't open fully due to it's softness, that's why I thought inciclo might be stiffer than others.
I don't really think it's a defect (since I'm really happy with mine), I just might be deducting wrong hahaha.

Ps: bom ver uma brasileira abraçadora da causa! :D

At the rim is way softer, at the base it's about same stiffiness.
