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.

What makes this menstrual cup different than the others on the market?

  • XO Flo holds more fluid (38 ml) than most other cups due to its rounded shape and high, slanted release holes.
  • XO Flo’s soft beaded stem is designed to be both trimmable and super comfortable when left untrimmed.
  • XO Flo’s patent-pending inner support rings help pop XO Flo open once inserted—no need for a thick, uncomfortable rim like other cups. Support rings also ensure easy removal.
  • XO Flo is made in USA with smooth, flexible medical-grade silicone.

XO Flow Menstrual Cup


Getting Started with a Menstrual Cup

Just like your first time using a tampon, your first time using a menstrual cup might not go 100% smoothly. And that's okay! While some lucky folks get the hang of using a cup right away, lots of us take two or three cycles to catch on.

You can wear a pantyliner as backup during your first cycle with XO Flo, and checking frequently for leaks. You can take your cup out every few hours to see how full it is, so you'll start to learn about how often you actually need to change it. You might be surprised at how little you actually flow!

For your peace of mind, it's always nice to try a new menstrual product on a low-stakes day--that is, not your wedding day or the day you wear your new white bikini to the beach! This will help you relax, which is the most important thing to do when using your new cup! Tense muscles will work against you when it comes to inserting and removing the cup, so take some deep breaths if you're feeling stressed.


Inserting a Menstrual Cup

Before using your XO Flo for the first time, thoroughly wash your hands and the cup in warm water with a mild, body-safe soap.To insert XO Flo, press the "x" sides of the cup together to fold the cup in half, then fold in half again. The rim of the cup will now be held in a "C" shape. Gently insert the cup rim-first into the vagina, angled gently toward the tailbone, and slowly guide it to where it feels comfortable. The length of the cup is worn within the body, though the stem may remain outside of the body. Release your fingers to open the cup. If you would prefer the cup to open a bit more slowly, start by pressing the "o" sides of the cup together, then fold in half again.
