Put A Cup In It

Menstrual Disc Reviews

Six menstrual discs displayed with text that reads Menstrual Disc Reviews

Reviews can be a very important step in choosing a menstrual cup or menstrual disc. While the menstrual disc market isn’t nearly as robust (yet!) as cups, there are several brands available now. Here are some reviews of the top menstrual disc brands. Check out our video menstrual disc reviews below to see what we really think about each period disc and compare them further on our Menstrual Disc Comparison Chart

Reusable menstrual discs are an ideal option for anyone who LOVES their disposable SoftDiscs or Flex Discs but have wished for a reusable version for environmental or cost savings reasons. It can also be an option for those with a fairly low cervix (too low of a cervix and you may have placement issues, however) since the disc doesn’t take up the length of the vaginal canal the way a cup does. All menstrual discs help facilitate mess-free period sex.

Ziggy by Intimina

The Ziggy is an ergonomically shaped disc that is meant to fit the shape of your body better, making placement a bit easier than standard round discs.

What We Love:

  • Completely comfortable while worn correctly and undetectable
  • Insertion and placement was easier (IMO) than a disposable disc
  • 100% leak free when it was working (not even a pink tinge for 2 days)

What We Don’t:

  • Removal can be messy (making emptying in a public bathroom a bit too much without access to a sink)
  • Hard to correct position if it slips without removing and re-inserting
  • The capacity is stated to be 76 ml but that is going to be less for most people


Made in Canada, the Nixit is the first disc that features something other than an extremely firm ring, making it a good disc to consider for those that have sensitivities or have experienced discomfort with other devices.

What We Love:

  • Silky soft silicone with a softer rim than others which may be more comfortable during wear and removal for some users
  • Stays in place well — no discomfort or slippage

What We Don’t:

  • Removal can be messy (making emptying in a public bathroom a bit too much without access to a sink)
  • For some, the very soft rim can make insertion difficult

Lumma Unique

The Lumma Unique comes in 3 sizes, making it the first disc available in something other than One-Size fits all!

What We Love:

  • A selection of sizes to meet the fit needs of more people!!
  • Durable silicone
  • Comes in fun colors or clear
  • Removal string
  • Firmer rim (for those who prefer it)
  • Includes a silicone case

What We Don’t:

  • Knowing which size to choose can be confusing
  • Removal can be messy (making emptying in a public bathroom a bit too much without access to a sink)

  1. I have a question pertaining to both the cups and discs:
    Noone seems to “talk” about going #2 with either cup/disc…
    Do they have to be removed when having bowl movement or maybe repositioned?

    1. I find it more comfortable to take the disc out. I think it presses slightly on my rectum making it more difficult to empty. also, the disc often will come out slightly when I relax my pelvic floor enough to defecate and gently push with my abdominal muscles. If the disc is already out, I don’t have to worry so much about cross contamination or if it will come all the way out. Thats just my own experience with my body. I’m 38 and never had kids.

  2. When you take it out….does blood get all over the vaginal canal?…. and wouldn’t that then get on your underwear without a liner in place? Or how do you prevent that mess?

    1. You take it out over the toilet and dump the collected blood into the toilet bowl & flush. It’s pretty messy, but I prefer that over having a stinky tampon in the trash.

  3. Nixit did NOT work for me. An awful experience and would self-empty when I would get out of bed in the morning. I have a high cervix.

    Would the Lumma medium perhaps be a better fit?
