Experienced cup user, found this one unsuitable
My third menstrual cup, I purchased this one to replace an old Mooncup that was no longer holding its shape or sealing (I assume because the silicone was too old after about 10 years). I bought the MeLuna (XL) and the Australian Juju (model 2) at the same time, both in a similar size and ‘softness’ according to an online comparison table. Both are equally good in all the ways that matter until it comes time to remove, when the MeLuna is the outright winner.
The Juju is a clear, shiny silicone and has a much more slippery finish. The embossed b...

Fabulous product. Shame about the discolouration.
I have had my cup for over 12 months now and being clear silicone I found it has discoloured quite a lot, despite my cleaning it every time I use it. I even boiled it and it's still discoloured. But the product itself is great, especially for someone with a low cervix. I have just purchased a new one, in pink this time. I wear mine every day due to heavy cervical discharge between periods and it's been a godsend.
Wish i bought it sooner!
I bought a cup from another brand that was recommended in a blog post for a low cervix. It had the odd leaking, slightly uncomfortable and the stem was painful and uncomfortable i had to cut it off which made it difficult to get it out. I just tolerated these issues because i have a low cervix and tilted uterus so figured due to those issues i would never find a cup that was 100% fault free. I wish i had just gone straight for the JUJU model 4. I was scared when i first seen it because it was slightly wider than my previous cup. But it is so soft, absolutely no discomfort, i am able to keep the stem as it is not irritating. So far so good an amazing product and definite value for money!!

I tried 2 times juju cup. it's comfortable but leaks. I was excited to receive my cup. It's ok to insert and taking out, However, it leaks and I don't know what to do. I tried different positions and folding but still leaks. I don't feel any discomfort. When I take off the cup, it is usually half full. I don't understand why it is happening. Should I try different brands?

Although I really like the concept of the cup I found I could feel it because it is very hard. I felt pressure on my bladder but I have a sensitive bladder. Also I find it over priced specially because I have now to purchase a new one. I am now on a hunt for a softer cup and found that prices are cheaper than the Juju.

JuJu Menstrual Cup High Cervix
Firstly about Menstrual Cups Australia Online - they deserve a mention about how quickly they sent the cups to me. I was impressed by their service and ease of the transaction.
Now onto the cups ...
Before I came across the JuJu high cervix cups, I have tried the Diva cup, some brown eco-rubbery cup, gone back to Diva cup and the Luna cup. For each of these cups, the experience was scary at best and terrifyyat worst. These cups are obviously not made for women with a high cervix as each time, they would travel up and it would be a frantic ...
Size guide is WAY off
I purchased the 2nd size designed for women over 30 or who have had kids. I don't have kids but am over 30. It is WAY too big. The material is obviously good, but is for too hard to be comfortable. Made me feel sick wearing it. The company should have more details around sizing as now I have wasted a lot of money on something I cannot use.
I really wanted this to work
My 2* is not for the product itself - it is made out of good material, and I can see it would work very well. It does require some ribbing on the base to give grip on removal.
I got this for travelling primarily, but it did not work for me. The take home message is if you are going to get a cup, no matter what brand, ***go to a dr (gyno) first***. My experience ended up in the emergency room and major intervention required to get it out due to an unknown kink in my pelvic anatomy. $55 is very pricey when it turns out you can't use something. View this like a diaphragm and get "fitted".

Wished I had tried this sooner
I brought the juju cup model 2- due to heavy periods in the past and once I got the hang of everything it has been the best decision I have ever made!
The cup itself is great quality, sturdy and easy to use. I had to find the best technique that would work for me I used the fold in technique which has worked best. Removing takes getting used to however it gets easier with time. The model 2 is quite stiff which works for me due to very heavy periods I tried the model 1 but it collapses.
Definitely wish I had tried this earlier it saves a lot of stress, money and pain! I do continue to get cramps but they have definitely decreased. I recommend juju 100%

Will never go back.
The Juju menstrual cup makes me almost feel like I'm not having a period. There's no worrying about leaking, dealing bulky pads or changing tampons every few hours. I love it and wish I had known about menstrual cups years ago.
The Juju did take a few days to get used to. I didn't know how it was supposed to feel so didn't realise that it hadn't popped open and it leaked. I also had trouble getting it out the first time. I've found that I need to bear down to get a grip on the base to remove it but now have no issues getting it in or out. It'...
Firstly, I would like to say this product is quality made and manufactured in Australia which I liked!!
But... I am struggling with leaking issues. For me, it has leaked since day one. I always have to wear a liner and on the heavier days I might as well just wear a tampon. I was at work one heavy day with it in and I spent most of my time in the bathroom!!! I have tried everything - changed folds, changed positioning, ensuring cup is open and a good seal (feels like it has good suction when I test it) ensuring I have the right size and check...
Wish I'd discovered this years ago!
Super comfortable (model 3), easy to insert ( and remove, once you get past the learning curve!), easy to clean, good for the planet - never going back to tampons or pads. Important to check your cervix position before buying, so you get the right model. Bought model 1 first, thinking "it should be fine, I'm pretty average", but because I have a high cervix, getting the sucker out each time was a major struggle & stress. Almost gave up, but decided to get model 3 and it has made a world of difference. Highly recommended - wish I'd known about this in high school or Uni - would have saved me $$$.

I absolutely love my Juju menstrual cup! I tried Lunette but it was way too firm and the suction was crazy strong. I got the Juju menstrual cup in size 3 and I adore it!
The new design is incredible and makes having a period a breeze. I love only having to empty my cup twice a day, rather than go through countless packs of disposable pads and tampons when I have my period!
I love reusables so switching to a menstrual cup was effortless. I've saved so much money from not buying disposables and I love that I can use my cup for several yea...rs, saving me thousands of dollars. Once you find your goldilocks menstrual cup & master inserting and removing it, it actually makes your period fun! You don't have to worry about leaking, or running out of pads or tampons because your cup is always there. It also cuts the risk of toxic shock to practically 0%! Please note that it isn't the Juju menstrual cup's fault regarding issues with removing it, that is a user's error that gets better with practice as you grow accustomed to the process and technique of removing the cup.
I was hesitant - but now I think it's fantastic
I have wanted to shift to a menstrual cup for a while but never had the courage to do so. A friend recommended juju to me. I was impressed it was Australian made to health care standards. It was a little uncomfortable at first, I think I should have tried a little lube to insert. However now I'm getting the hang of it. I love the fact that I don't need to purchase expensive tampons and pads. I'm even happier to say that I'm having a more positive effect on the environment. I recommend this product.
If I could rate it 6 starts i would!
This is the best cup EVER! I have tried the Diva cup 2 years ago and it was a HORRIBLE experience for me. The cup felt too big. It took me about 40 minutes to insert, and 1 hour to take out. The experience was very painful. After 2 years of being terribly afraid of menstrual cups, I decided I would give it a second try. I REALLY wanted to enjoy menstrual cups. I did TONS of research trying to find the perfect cup. A cup with a small diameter, that would be painless for me to insert (I'm VERY tight down there). I was also looking for a cup that ...would work for a high cervix. I picked out the Juju model 3 and it is absolutely perfect for me. I ordered this cup all the way from Canada, therefore I had ginormous shipping fees (which was risky thing for me to do) but it was more than worth it. Picking out this cup made me LOVE menstrual cups like I always had hoped I would! It is also vegan which is awesome! THANK YOU SO MUCH JUJU!!!!!!!
Excellent it's so easy
I bought my juju three months ago and will never go back. I used to 'skip' my period because it was too much to deal with but this gives me no excuses. I do wish I had gone to the size 2 but as a I have a low cervix I went with the size 1. Due to this I have had two leakages but nothing to get upset about. So happy to buy Australian made and when the time comes I will definitely be buying for my girls.
No more buying tampons!
I chose Juju because it's made in Australia. The packaging was beautiful which was a nice surprise. I got the small size but my first thought was how big (as in wide) it is in comparison to a tampon. The silicon is very soft and the cup folds in half for insertion and I found it easily unfolded once inside. I found the cup tricky to remove because it' slightly slippery to get a hold of and the suction kind of holds it in place (hence 4 star rather than 5). And no matter how shallow I insert it, it still slips up a bit deeper. Emptying the ...cup means you are going to get up close and personal with your lady parts and the workings of your period which I don't mind, but the squeamish ladies out there may. The advantages are no more buying tampons (yay), no more tampon smells, no old tampons sitting in the bin and making landfill, no more having a tampon sitting inside you, and you can use the cup for longer than a tampon ( so good for work/camping/ busy lifestyle etc). So far the cup volume has been fine. It was a bit messy emptying on one of my heavier days when I first got the Juju cup and it was almost full, but I'm improving as time goes on.
Menstrual cups are awesome
Juju menstrual cups are very good the only Australian made brand on the market I've had it over a year and still use it on lighter days. They would work well as a starter cup, for a medium cervix, they are firm enough to pop open easily inside. There are more variety of shapes and sizes overseas but as my first cup I still use it regularly. Due to a low cervix I had to cut off the stem and flip it inside out because it was rubbing badly. But now works fine just more slippery inside out.
After disinfecting on the stove then in peroxide it changed colour and has developed very fine brittle cracks. So I would suggest just rinsing with hot tap water.
not good for my heavy days ( graphic descriptions warning!)
I had a hard time slicing my inner self with my fingernails, trying to find a fold that would open. I did that, and then struggled with removal!
Once I figured out my best contortion, plus bear down move, to remove it, it was great! I loved sleeping with it. But as soon as my heavy day came, I felt wetness within ten minutes of placing. Three big clots had travelled down and filled the cup! I know there were three, because as I bore down and pinched the base of the cup, my muscles compressed the cup and most of the contents ended up over my ba...
Questions & Answers
I had a juju cup but the grip part was too hard to get ahold of. Is the newer version with the higher raised ridges easier to handle?
I just keep leaking, what am I doing wrong?
I can hear it open when I have inserted it correctly, the cup is not full when I take it out, am I putting it in too far? I can easily reach the tip when it is inserted. Thanks.
That is possibly the reason - definitely try placing it lower. But it could be due to so many other reasons. I wish I could be more helpful. I have found that sometimes a cup can slip ( up higher ) and I don’t know real solution to that. When that has happened I have tried a different cup. The Juju is very smooth and firm - maybe this makes it easier to slip?? When the same thing happened to me I tried the Lily Cup which is less smooth and different shape and less firm (but harder to open up). Not sure if this is helpful but I really understand your frustration.
I wondering if this product would work for me I'm a heavy bleeder on days 3,4,5 and have tried tampons before and they fall out when I stand up after inserting it tis?
If you visit the Juju website, they have a table that can help with picking the right cup for your needs. There are many helpful folding methods to assist with inserting the cup as well as getting it to open once inserted. A menstrual cup works by using suction (when opened after inserting) to form a seal to collect the blood. Therefore the chance of it falling out is very low because of the suction seal it creates.
If that doesn't work I would honestly suggest getting a firmer cup like the Lunette menstrual cup (which I find creates a powerful seal) or maybe try switching to a heavy absorbancy/overnight cloth or disposable pad on your heavy days.
