Intimina Lilly Cup Compact Menstrual Cup


Moja ljubav prema menstrualnim čašicama je nemerljiva. Uvek sa oduševljenjem pišem o njima i volim da s vremena na vreme kupim i isprobam neku novu. Srbija nije zemlja koja ima tu sreću da bilo koju menstrualnu čašicu možete kupiti u slobodnoj prodaji, ali zato je tu internet i putovanja po susednim zemljama. Ovaj put predstaviću švedski brend Intimina i jednu veoma posebnu i drugačiju čašicu Lilly Cup Compact. Ja sam je kupila u Španiji po ceni od oko 35 EUR (39.95 USD je cena na Intimina sajtu). Intimina proizvodi se takođe od nedavno mogu naći u apotekama i DM drogerijama u Hrvatskoj, pa se iskreno nadam da će se pojaviti i u Srbiji,.


My love for menstrual cups is immeasurable. I'm always delighted to write about them and I like to buy and try new ones from time to time. Serbia is not a country that has the good fortune of having any menstrual cups available, but because of the internet and travel to neighboring countries, we can also buy menstrual cups. This time I will present the Swedish brand Intimina and their very special and different cup Lilly Cup Compact. I have bought it in Spain at a price of about 35 EUR (39.95 USD is the price on Intimina web site). Intimina products can also be found in pharmacies and DM drugstores in Croatia, so I sincerely hope that the same will happen in Serbia, too.


Intimina proizvodi dva tipa čašica. Jednu glatku - Lilly Cup, koja je takođe vrlo jedinstvena (saznajte zašto u tekstu kod Maje Zmaje), i drugu - Lilly Cup Compact, koja se zapravo može složiti i odložiti kada se ne koristi u vrlo malu kutijicu, koju dobijate uz čašicu. Kod ovog proizvođača obe čašice proizvode se u dve veličine, gde manju veličinu uglavnom uzimaju mlađe devojke i one koje nisu rađale, a veću devojke koje su rađale ili imaju slabije mišiće donje karlice. Ono što ja želim da istaknem je da su ove čašice malo duže nego kod nekih drugih proizvođača, posebno obična Lilly Cup. Ja sam vrlo plitka tako da običnu nisam mogla ni da razmišljam da probam, ali Compact verzija je kraća i zbog toga sam se za nju odlučila. Na ovom linku možete videti tabelu sa uporednim dimenzijama mnogih menstrualnih čašica.


Intimina produces two types of cups. A smooth one - Lilly Cup, which is also very unique (find out why in the text by Maje Zmaje), and the second one - Lilly Cup Compact, which can actually be folded and stored in a very small box, which comes with a cup. Both types of cups are available in two sizes, where a smaller size is usually for younger girls and those who haven't given birth naturally, and larger ones are for those who give birth or have weaker pelvic muscles. I want to emphasize, that these cups are a little longer than those from some other manufacturers, especially ordinary Lilly Cup. I'm very shallow so I couldn't even think of trying the regular Lilly Cup, but the Compact version is shorter and therefore I decided to get it. You can find size comparisons for many menstrual cups on this link.


Medicinski silikon od kog je čašica napravljena je vrlo lep i prijatan. Uz čašicu dobijate i uputstvo, sa detaljima kako da vašu čašicu koristite i održavate. Na dnu obe vrste čašice postoji mala drška, koju možete skratiti u slučaju da vam čašica stoji nisko i drška vam je predugačka. Pre prvog korišćenja u toku ciklusa čašicu treba otkuvati u ključaloj vodi 5-8 minuta. To se može raditi i na kraju ciklusa pre odlaganja čašice. Ja volim da jednu od ove dve sterilizacije radim sa Corega tabletama za sterilizaciju zubnih proteza. Na ovo sam se navikla još dok sam koristila samo MeLuna menstrualne čašice.


Medical silicone from which the cup is made is very nice and soft. You will also get a small book of instructions, detailing how to use your cup and maintain it. At the bottom of both types of cups there is a small handle, which can be shortened in case your cup stands low and you handle it too long for you. Before first use during the cycle cup should be disinfected in boiling water for 5-8 minutes. This can also be done at the end of the cycle before you store your cups. I like to do one of these two sterilization using Corega tablets for sterilizing dentures. I got used to doing that when I used only MeLuna menstrual cups.


Iako nisam rađala i nemam slabe mišiće donje karlice gledajući dimenzije čašica i poredeći sa čašicama koje sam do tad koristila odlučila sam se za veću čašicu tj. veličinu B, i nisam pogrešila. Lilly Cup compact veličina B je dužine 47.5 mm (58 mm sa drškom) i ima prečnik od 45 mm. Na slici ispod sa leve strane je čašica koju sam do tad najviše volela MeLuna Shorty L, čašica za osobe sa niskm grlićem materice (dužina bez drške 41 mm i prečnik 44 mm). Sa desne strane je MeLuna M Sport (dužina bez drške 48 mm, prečnik 41 mm) koju sam koristila ranije dok još MeLuna nije uvela Shorty opciju. Kao što vidite Lilly Cup Compact Size B je po obimu slična MeLuna veličini L, dok je po dužii slična običnoj MeLuna čašici veličine M. Generalno moj zaključak je da izbor veličine i nije toliko pipav i da ako okvirno ubodete šta je vama potrebno nećete pogrešiti.


Although I haven't given birth, and I don't have weak pelvic muscles, when I compared dimensions of Lilly cups with cups that I used until then, I decided to buy the larger size B, and I didn't make a mistake. Lilly Cup compact size B has a length of 47.5 mm (58 mm including the handle) and has a diameter of 45 mm. In the figure below on the left is my old favorite MeLuna Shorty L, for girls with low cervix (length without the handle is 41 mm and diameter 44 mm). On the right is MeLuna M Sport (length without handle 48 mm, diameter 41 mm) that I used earlier while there was no MeLuna Shorty option. As you can see Lilly Cup Compact Size B is similar in diameter to MeLuna size L, while in length it is similar to ordinary MeLuna cup size M. Overall, my conclusion is that the choice of size is not so touchy, if you prick roughly the size that you need.



Po črvrstini same čašice najbljiža je standardnoj MeLuna čašici (MeLuna ima i tvrđu sport varijantu). Vrlo se lako razvija nakon što se ubaci, ali pošto se lako sklapa malo treba prakse da je postavite, a da se pri guranju na gore bar deo nje ne uvuče. Ipak, to i nije previše problematično i već drugi put kada sam je ubacivala nisam imala problema. Kao i kod ostalih čašica, prilikom prvih nekoliko dana kada ima više krvi, praznim je 3 do 4 puta, a kasnije možda i samo 2 puta u toku dana.  


The hardiness is closest to a standard MeLuna cup (MeLuna also has a harder sport version). It is easily opened after it is inserted, but since it is easy to fold, it can easily collapse a little when you push it up. However, this is not too problematic and the second time I used it, I didn't have such a problem. As with other cups, the first few days when there is more blood I empty it 3 to 4 times, and later perhaps only 2 times a day.


Prezadovoljna sam ovom menstrualnom čašicom. Materijalom, osećajem, lakoćom korišćenja i održavanja. Medicinski silikon je takođe bolji od TPE od kog su napravljene npr. MeLuna čašice, zato što može duže da se otkuvava i samim tim sigurniji ste da je čašica u potpunosti dezinfikovana. Takođe, obožavam i činjenicu da Lilly Cup Compact može da se spakuje i skladišti u malenoj kutiji. Ako još uvek niste prešle na menstrualne čašice, još jednom apelujem da to što pre učinite. Intimina čašice sa za dovoljstvom preporučujem, samo pazite na dimenzije prilikom odabira vaše.

I am very happy with this menstrual cup. Material, feel, ease of use and maintenance are great. Medical silicone is also better than TPE which is used for MeLuna cups, since silicone can be in boiling water longer. This way you are sure that your cup is disinfected well. Also, I love the fact that Lilly Cup Compact can be packed and stored in a small box. If you haven't yet switched to menstrual cups, once again I appeal you to do so as soon as possible. I recommend Intimina cups with pleasure, just watch out when selecting the right size for you.
