Introducing XO Flo Mini! With proper care and use, your XO Flo Mini will bring you years of period protection that's better for your body and the environment.
XO Flo Mini is a flexible, internally-worn reusable menstrual cup made with body-safe medical grade silicone. XO Flo Mini collects (rather than absorbs) monthly menstrual flow. Your XO Flo Mini may remain in the body for up to 12 hours at a time, unlike a tampon which must be changed more frequently.
What makes XO Flo Mini different?
Should I get the XO Flo or XO Flo Mini?
I got the original XO Flo after seeing it reviewed online. The thick external rims of other cups are often painful for me during removal, so the totally smooth exterior sounded like the answer to my problem. I was SO disappointed when it turned out to be just too big for my comfort (I'm unable to completely empty my bladder while wearing it, for instance). When I saw the XO Flo Mini kickstarter, I signed up immediately. Now that my Mini has finally arrived, I'm VERY very very happy to find that is it just perfect for me. I did end up trimming the third bead/stem section off, but that's it.
I originally had the XO-flo as my first cup product from glad rags. XO-flo was an improvement from tampons! Especially on heavy days! However I won't lie when I needed to use it on light days it sorta got...stuck! Which is why when I heard about the kickstarter for this little beauty I knew I couldn't miss out! It got launched and came to me in the knick of time this month. I was super happy to try it! I gotta say it really works a wonder like it's older sister model, and personally i think it's also a very good beginner model for anyone still nervous to try the normal XO-flo if your concerned about size and all. Not to mention the packaging is super cute!
This product works exactly as needed. I tried it for the first time during my last cycle and was very happy with the results: its easy to insert and worked like a charm with no leaks. I donated my last box of tampons. So glad I bought one.
I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the XO mini is. Like, SUPER comfortable. I pretty instantaneously felt empowered using it, too. (At first I felt a little panicky that I wouldn't be able to get it out, but then I remembered, "Oh yeah, remember your vagina is a rockstar, Megan, and can move things. Work together." And then it was no problem.) The XO mini feels right for me – physically, economically, environmentally, emotionally. I work in an office of two, so I really appreciate not having to worry about things during the day. I'm quickly getting the hang of emptying and cleaning -- even in public places when I need to. Would highly recommend!
very comfortable, extremely practical, leak tight and most environmentally friendly possible. discovering the pads changed my attitude towards periods to positive and self afirming. xo flo mini is changing my movement: I feel completely free and can do most stuff as if I did not have my period because it is so comfortable and effective. huge thank you to gladrags!!
