JuJu Menstrual cup review

JuJu is an Australian made and owned company. The cups are made in a clean room environment. cups are made from one cohesive piece of medical grade silicone. So it is soft, comfortable and safe to use in the human body. The JuJu is free of colours & dyes, BPA free, and free of harmful chemicals like bleaches and absorbency agents. There are no know associations of TTS with menstrual cups. The JuJu is an Australian Registered Therapeutic Good. Think of it s their FDA and speaking f FDA, JuJu is working on getting their FDA approval and hope to be selling in the USA and Canada early next year.

Menstrual cups are a great alternative to disposable menstrual products. They are more convenient. No more late night runs to the store when you run out of tampons. They can be won 2-3 times longer than a tampon, won't dry you out, and are odour fee ( the smell most associated with a women's period comes from the blood mixing with the chemicals in disposables). They are also great for women who travel  just one cups is all you need. The JuJu can also be worn with doing any sports activity. They are also better for your body, they keep all kinds of chemicals out like bleach, dioxins, and fragrances.

The average women uses 10,000 disposables in her lifetime. That is billions and billions of products going into our landfills and waterways. With every cycle using a menstrual cup you are helping these numbers to drop.

The JuJu comes in two sizes:

Model 1 recommended for women under thirty or who have never given birth:
Capacity 20ml diameter 40mm length 46mm total length 65mm

Model 2 recommended for women over 30 or who have given birth:
Capacity 30ml diameter 46mm length 50mm Total length 69mm

The size recommendations are just that recommendations. I know of younger girls that have never given birth that prefer a large size for more capacity and also women over thirty that can only use the smaller sizes. No one knows your body like you some get to know yourself and choose the best size you think.

Photo comparisons of the Model 1 and the Model 2


Closer look at what I recieved from JuJu:
Model 1 and model 2 JuJu cup and Three satin storage bags.

One for the neatest touches to me is the box it comes in. It unfolds like a flower and has some great info inside it.
 It also tells you the meaning behind their name JuJu.

The JuJu is made of one solid piece of silicon so there are no seams.

It has the JuJu logo on one side

and the model size on the other.

It has four suction release holes that are very near the top of the cup for max capacity.

The grips at the base of the cup are little butterflies just like the one in the logo.


The stem has a y shape to it and is very soft, flexible and stretchy.

It comes with a very nice satin storage bag. You can choose between a pinky/purple with an inside contrast color of pink , a dark green with lime green inside or navy blue with silver inside.



The capacity was nice and I was able to use the cup even on my heaviest days for hours. The cup was very comfortable and the stem was great. It is so soft and flexible that I didn't have to trim it at all and still couldn't tell it was there much like a tampon string. Removal was fine, the stem was right there so I was able to pull on it gently and reach the base of the cup easily. The grip butterflies are pretty subtle and didn't provide much as a grips ring but the cup is soft so I had no issues with gripping it.

The JuJu is on the higher end of the price range at 58.44 but when you consider that this is the only product you will have to buy for ten years that's an amazing deal . Only 5.84 a year or .48 a month to own your JuJu cup !!! I am not sure on shipping cost yet as hey are not shipping to the US yet. You can also order extra storage bags for 5.18. Juju Shop.

The JuJu is a great cup with great features. Love that stem ;). Customer service is fast and friendly. They answered all my questions e-mailed to them within minuets. Over all I would say that this is a great cup. It works well and is very comfortable. No complaints on this cups. You can stay updated on all the latest news from JuJu including when they begin shipping to the US and Canada by liking their Facebook page.

I didn't post comparison photos this time but if there is any cups you want me to compare just ask and I will post them :)

  7. Is the stem capable of being trimmed? Curious, just because it does not look like it in the pics since the bottom has a small ball like structure.

    1. It can be trimmed. The stem doesn't have any grips on it so it might be a little hard to pull on and not slip without the ball on the end. But if you are comfortable with removal trimming the stem is fine.

  10. I have always wanted to try these! I've always been the one running to the bathroom too many times and changing clothes because I go through disposables so quickly. I love that these last longer and don't have a smell associated with it!

  14. I have read mixed reviews about menstrual cups having the extension on the end for easy removal. Some people have said it is the only uncomfortable thing about it. Has anyone had the experience?

  15. I am older woman who has not started "the change" yet and have started using cloth pads. I am thinking about trying a cup but am not sure yet. The review was helpful, I am leaning more to yes. Thanks :)

  16. Some cups have stems that are thicker and can cause discomfort but the stems can be trimmed so that they don't stick out. The JuJu's stem is very soft and flexible and has caused me no

  17. Discomfort. I would say it is very close to that of a tampon string. But if it does cause irritation it can be trimmed as well. Cups sit lower than a tampon and can be reached easily without the stem. I have some cups that I have removed the stem completely on and some cups like the MeLuna can be purchased with no stem.

  18. Very informative review! It's hard when buying things over the net that you can't see them for yourself - I've seen a few reviews on JuJu yet I never knew it had butterfly grips or the little ball on the stem - I love the box too!! I'm a sucker for pretty packaging ;) very tempted to try the JuJu!!

  22. These look great, I like how the stem appears compared to the one one my Diva cup. I also like that it is not colored like the Lunette and the satin pouches are beautiful colors.

  26. I really want to try one of these cups. I'm new to reusable menstrual products but have found cloth pads so much more comfy. Would love to be able to get rid of tampons too!
