Hello, I need some advice please. I would like to cut the no-spill lid off my FemmyCycle... why? Long story. If I cut it off and file the edges smooth, would the raw material be more porous and prone to collecting bacteria? I know that some women have trimmed the stems, some have even filed down the grip rings. I was wondering how safe that is. Thanks.

That totally happened to me with my soft MeLuna! It got too soft after monthly boiling and quit working entirely.

As far as the antibacterial properties of silicone being damaged (of which I have no knowledge), if that were true then trimming stems or punching larger/more airholes would be bad too, no?

I imagine the Femmycycle folk might have a cow over altering the cup. =)

That is my main concern. But apparently women have been doing this for a long time and they claim it's safe.

They saw my Facebook message but haven't replied :D
I'm sure they have blacklisted me or something :D
