Flex menstrual cup Reviews – 100% leak Proof – Does it work?
Flex menstrual cup review – I have used other menstrual cup and usually replace every year. I found flex cup on Instagram ads, and it was enticing as the way it works. However, it is the worst cup I have ever used.
I tried to give this menstrual cup a chance; after 3-4 cycles of using it, I found myself desperate to buy tampons. If you have a heavy flow, I would recommend using it with period underwear.
Honest review – Does flex cup really work?
I had very high hope and thought things would turn out fine; unfortunately, I will be going for period panties and keep the flex as an emergency spare.
Really, i don’t know how to review this flex cup product. I had the worst experience with the flex cup. When I tried to get rid of it at work, the “plunger” that’s supposed to squeeze the cup out but it did a lousy job.
All the blood came out, spilling over my hands, on the floor, and some splashed on my shirt. I had to walk to the sink with my period all over my hands and my shirt ruined.
I have had a similar experience severally during my cycles. Unfortunately, I can’t return it. I have never felt this embarrassed and disgraced with my period since I got my first period in high school—so disgusting thinking about it.

This cup would be fine if it did not leak, and the leaking is a design flaw. However, the flex cup is designed to make it so easy to remove but causes little leakage.
This is because there is a hole in the very bottom of the cup where the finger hoop is attached up to the top rim.
The cup is a bit difficult to get in place. I wish the cup did not leak, i would have preferred it over tampons. However, to the flex cup work better if combined with Period leak undies.
