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.

Hey I'm glad this all worked out for you :)

I was wondering how difficult this was for you because I want to get a low cervix femmycyle but I don't want to have to open the no spill rim when I take it out (that would be more messy to me, to stick my finger in there :$).

I can't be completely sure, but it felt like the rim was popping open inside, which created painful suction. It must have been the way I was inserting it - to prevent leakage I had to open it by pushing the fold with my finger, I guess the rim would also open inside as a result of that.

When taking it out, the rim would often come out open, but it wouldn't spill - messiness was never the issue - it really is mess free most of the time. My problem was that it wouldn't open up on its own as it gathered the content - it would leak a lot. If you follow their instructions it could work just fine for you.

And if it works, then it's the best. The biggest advantage for me was the capacity, then of course, the no spill design. Again, what it didn't do for me is open up naturally like they said it would.

Now that I cut the rim off it is so much better. If I get it to pop open enough, I don't have to worry about anything for the next 12 hours. It was always a bit too big for complete comfort but the amazing capacity is worth it. The mess isn't that bad even with no rim.
I hope this helps :)
