Green Your Life ~ One Period at a Time!! LadyCup Menstrual Cup


My next menstrual cup review is of the LadyCup!  Iveta was the sweet lady who I spoke with and she kindly sent me one of each size to review for you all!

Website: www.ladycup.eu
Made by:  Jaguara, s.r.o.
Country of origin: they have locations in the US, Deutschland and Czech republic
Lifespan: up to 15 years
Composition:  Medical Grade Silicone
Sizes:  small and large
Dimensions:  Small: 40mm x 46mm, Large: 46mm x 53mm
Stem:  Small: 19mm, Large: 13mm
Capacity: Small: 21.2 mL, Large: 34.3 mL
Measuring Lines:  None
Cost (USD): $29.70 usd
Guarantee: “For the material is 2 years.  The lifetime of the product is up to 15 years, given its regular and proper maintenance.  In case you choose the wrong size, we will replace your LadyCup free of charge.”
Other: “The recommended sterilization tablets will sterilize your LadyCup in 15 minutes.  Moreover, there is no resk of LadyCup deteriorating through boiling.  MILTON disinfection has already been used in hospitals for 30 years and its antibacterial efficiency against germs has been clinically proven.  Additionally, MILTON sterilization tablets are more efficient than boiling, a process in which not all germs are destroyed.”
Company: FAQs


I received two usable LadyCups, marked “Only Sample”, and a handful of brochures.  I would have like to see the quality of their bags, but I guess they don’t send those out for reviewers.  However, Iveta assured me that when you purchase your own LadyCup you will receive a coordinating bag.  They also sell them separately here, and there’s even a 100% organic cotton bag here.


It’s equipped with vent holes just as all the others have been.

For easy removal it’s made with little bumps all around the base and on the stem…


Here’s the line-up of all the cups I’ve reviewed so far.

This is the small LadyCup next to the small BellaCup (for comparison)

The LadyCup isn’t quite as soft as the Bella, but it didn’t affect comfort in any way.

And now a comparison of the large BellaCup and large LadyCup

It’s also not quite as slick as the BellaCup, but it’s still very smooth so that inserting the LadyCup is not uncomfortable at all!


I actually had the most luck with the large LadyCup than with any other cup so far.  The small one, though I love the purple color, wouldn’t stay put….just too small for me.  But I was able to use the large one with no leaks even on my heaviest day.  It stayed in place after every insertion.  I think it being a tad firmer than any of the others helped with this.

I really love the color choices the LadyCup comes in.  No more boring white/clear.  You could even get adventurous and get a few different colors to coordinate with your outfits!  HAHA – I kid!  But seriously, you could if you wanted to.  ;)

I’m really not sure what else to say.  I love the LadyCup!  It’s the first one I’ve had 100% success using.  I even had to not wear it for part of my cycle so I could give the cloth pads a fair review!

Have any of you tried the LadyCup?  I’m curious how your experiences have been!

P.S.  Have you signed up for my Occasional Newsletter yet!

7 Ways to Lower Your Grocery Budget & Eat Better {with the ultimate healthy living bundle}

1. Menu Plan!

This has been a huge money saver for us.  Knowing exactly what you’re going to prepare and what you need to buy because you’ve planned your week already with 7 dinners makes for less stress and less compulsion spending when you are at the store.  It’s also a huge stress reliever when 4 o’clock hits and you’re wondering what to make.  The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle not only comes with 4 books to help you menu plan like Laura’s book which has40 Real Food Menus complete with breakfast, lunch , and dinner!  But it also comes with a FREE  4 month membership to Plan to Eat, and 3 month membership to List PlanIt which has a whole host an planning templates and not just for menus!

2. Budgeting the Budget!

I have learned to budget our grocery budget, it really helps to have a plan on how much I will spend on eggs each month or milk.  It sounds strange, but I learned this concept from Real Food on a Real Budget which is also in this Bundle and is a wealth of information on how to eat well on a tight budget.

3. Make Your Own!

Not only are there books that show you how to make your own beauty products and cleaners which can save you hundreds of dollars annually alone, but Jami’s new book ‘Warning I Throw Food’ A Comprehensive Guide to Natural Homemade Baby Food shows you how you can make your own baby food which is a huge money saver just by itself. 

4. Grow Your Own Food!

Anyone can grow food, even when you live in a teeny tiny apartment.  We used the book Apartment Gardening to maximize our growing space.  And ‘The Gardening Notebook’ will help you keep records to increase the bounty in years to come.  ‘How To Use and Grow Culinary Herbs’ will spice up your kitchen and save you lots throughout the year as you clip fresh herbs for FREE instead of having to purchase them.  Have a bumper crop?  ‘The Veggie Book’ takes you step by step on how to make those vegetables delicious so the whole family will enjoy the bounty.

5. Preserve the Harvest!

Wardee will teach you how to dehydrate all of your harvest with her book ‘Dehydrating’.  By dehydrating any extra produce you grow or get for a steal at the farmers market you will grow your pantry and save big.

6. Save the Scraps!

‘From Garbage To Gourmet’ will give you an eye for saving those scraps to turn into a ‘free’ meal.  Are you spending your hard earned dollars on organic produce and meat?  Don’t waste the peels or bones, turn those scraps into meals and Carrie the author of ‘From Garbage to Gourmet‘ shows you just how to do that.  If you could get one ‘free’ meal a week from your scraps that’s a savings of over $260 a year!

7. Cloth Diaper!

This is the most obvious way to save money and this alone could save you over $500 a year.  Erin the author of ‘Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert’ tells us just how she did it in her book, and how you can too!  We cloth diaper and with 4 children we’ve saved at least $5,000 over the past 6 years.  Cloth diapers not your thing?  ‘Early Potty Teaching: A Natural and Gentle Way to Potty Train Your Little One’ by Becky is another way to get that baby out of disposable diapers and free up some money in your budget.

All of these books and MORE are in the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle, but it’s only available for 2 more days.  The sale ends Saturday November 9th at 11:59pm (EST).

Buy the bundle today and equip yourself to save big and eat better.  And as a BONUS, you’ll be getting 12 weeks of online mentoring with the Coffee Table Conversations, and NINE great bonus offers for FREE products to help you on your journey to healthier living.


As an added FREEBIE bonus for my readers – here’s a free download for all of you who have purchased the bundle.  It’s a super cool checklist so you can keep track of which ones you’ve read!
