Say hello to XO Flo! With proper care and use, your XO Flo can last for years of period protection that's better for your body and the environment.
XO Flo is a soft, internally-worn reusable menstrual cup made with body-safe medical grade silicone. XO Flo collects (rather than absorbs) monthly menstrual flow. Your XO Flo may remain in the body for up to 12 hours at a time, unlike a tampon which must be changed more frequently.
When removing the XO Flo, grip the stem as high as possible, as the smallest bead is there to help you locate your XO Flo, but is not designed to be tugged.
What makes XO Flo different?
I was excited to try this cup, but I admit I was a little startled by the large size at first. Once I got used to it, I can't feel it at all! The rimless technology makes it so comfortable, and the larger size is perfect for us heavier-flowed gals. I have to change less frequently and it leaks much less than other cups I have tried! Just make sure you fold it at the Xs or else it won't go in right. I also love the stem design, very easy to grab!
So, I've been using various menstrual cups of different sizes and brands for the last years. But I think I have never been as excited to try out a new cup as with the XO Flo, What can I say? I LOVE the design. It's perfect. It feels like the designers took all the flaws that can annoy you with other cups and improved them for this one. The material's great, the shape, inner rings, smooth rim, just great. But here's the problem: The size. I am so sorry, but I am very disappointed because I can't actually use it. It is just to big for me to wear, causing me great discomfort when inserted, even after giving it multiple tries. I am 21 and have never given birth, but because I can wear "bigger sizes" in other brands' cups I figured it would be fine. So, If you maybe are built differently that me or have given birth, it's gonna make the best cup ever. Sadly, not for me though.
I had been thinking of making the switch to a cup for a long time and saw the review of it on Oh Joy Sex Toy. Taking it out of the package is a bit daunting; it looks big especially for a first-timer, but after using it for the first cycle, I got used to a fold and a technique of using it that worked for me. I had absolutely no leaks the entire time, even if it was ever inserted incorrectly. I'm on my second cycle with it now and I'm in love! Using it is definitely an involved process, so be prepared to get to know your lady bits really well, and it will take getting used to using it, but it's definitely worth the switch if you're thinking of making it!
I love menstrual cups. I started with the moon cup and switched to the lunette cup. I've had issues with these leaking even though I inserted them correctly. This is the cup I've been looking for. The shape is perfect for me, the cup contains everything and it's clean when I take it out. Thank you so much for this cup.
I've had 3 other cups before XO Flo and XO is by far my favorite. The larger size was a little daunting at first, but insertion was easy enough. The outer ring took a bit to open and seal, so there's some leakage initially, but I always use one of the cloth liners with my cup regardless. My biggest complaint with previous cups was that the stems were "stabby" and this issue is nonexistent with the XO! I honestly couldn't be happier. I can leave it in for about 7-9 hours. It's a champ with yoga, karate, kickboxing, and office work! I'm really glad I took the plunge and got the XO!
I really like this cup. It is so much more comfortable than I thought it would be. I really thought it would be uncomfortable because its bigger than the one I have been using, but it is so great. I couldn't feel that it was even there after it was in. I had absolutely no problems with it and it held up very well on my heaviest day. I only had to empty it once that day. Usually I have to empty twice on my heaviest days. Overall, I would definitely recommend this cup to anyone looking for an addition to their collection or looking to make the switch to RUMPs.
