We’d love to hear your experience with Coralcone and even your experiences using other brands. Tell us what works for you and even tell us what doesn’t. Our mission to make Coralcone the best it can possibly be is reliant on the feedback of our menstruating community.
Yes, dozens of people have been test trialling our Coralcone prototypes from the very beginning, but every punani is different – so if it didn’t quite work for you the first time around, we really encourage you to try and try again because with practise it gets easier and easier!
I’ve been using the Midi since Nov 2022. I made the switch from a softer cup as I started expecting leaks with my previous cup after childbirth. I loved receiving the item with its sustainable packaging and the little tipple spout makes clean up a breeze. Personally for me the softer cup makes me wanna pee less but I stuck the Coralcone cause I workout so often and with its firmness I feel very “secure”. Not to mention, zero leaks experienced so far!

AMAZING! I have never used a cup before and absolutely recommend the coral cone to anyone. After years of using other products, the coral cone feels natural, cleansing and good for the body. I am in my mid forties and my periods are becoming irregular. The different size cups are great for irregular and unpredictable flows. The ribbon is comfortable and helps with the apprehension of not being able to get the cup out. It is very easy to insert and I cannot feel it at all. Give it a go and like anything with a bit of practice, it becomes easy. For females with a lifetime of periods ahead of them, I really feel like this is the way forward. The beautiful styling in the cone and packaging just make it a joy to use!

At first I was nervous to try it out, but am so glad I did!! Very comfortable and easy to use. The product is so thoughtfully designed, and the story behind the brand is inspiring. And I love that it’s from New Zealand!

I was a lifetime tampon user and now will never put one of those awful things in my body again! I also have a very high cervix. So high my midwife and doctor have struggled to reach it! So I knew right away the Midi cone was for me. I inserted it using the punchdown method and was surprised at how easily it slid up there. The locator strap was helpful at first but just like training wheels I no longer need it. The first time I had to remove it I did panic as could not reach the cup, but to get it out is very simple. All you need to do is slightly squat and do a couple of pelvic floor movements. This brings the cup down a little. Feel for the handy ridges on the cup and hook it out. Simple! The Coralcone paired with some period undies is all I will use now. I will never buy sanitary products again! I have told all my menstruating friends to get one. Do it! Highly recommend! Hot Tip: if you have to change while out and about don't do what I did! Make sure to use a bathroom with a sink inside for that crucial rinse!

i’ve been using a menstrual cup for the better part of a decade and have tried several—coralcone is better than any cup i’ve ever used ever ever ever. the rim is more functional than others and helps to prevent any leakage/spillage, the silicone is soft and not as thick as other cups making it easy to fold for insertion and much more comfortable to wear, the shape is also ever-so-slightly longer and narrower than other cups, which can be uncomfortably wide (and i’ve had two kids!). truly amazing.
- Sarah K, USA
I liked how it came packaged and the instructions were part of the packaging. And the pouch it comes in. Keep calm and maybe practice putting it in. Don’t rush.
- Chloe, United Kingdom
I was nervous about trying a menstrual cup but found this one really easy to use and comfortable too! Top tip: follow the instructions provided and you'll be fine!
- Lucy, United Kingdom
The silicon was extremely soft and easy to use when I had my period. I also loved that it had the silicon ribbon attached to the cup for ease of removal. The pouch that it comes with is also great because it’s easy to travel with. I was really impressed that two dollars from every purchase goes to supporting Live Ocean. I love brands supporting organizations to support the environment!
- Katherine H, Australia
I actually really liked the little travel pouch it comes with to store the cone in. It’s really cute and discreet! I also love their conservation efforts in reducing unnecessary waste into the oceans and supporting marine environmental foundations and research.

Let’s chat about the CoralCone Menstrual Cup – it’s like a little eco-friendly revolution for my period! The super comfy design and how user-friendly it is make me feel like I’m doing something good for myself and the planet, one cycle at a time. And let’s not forget that coral-inspired color – it’s like a sustainable self-care treat! 🌿🌸🌍 I’m truly impressed by CoralCone’s commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. Knowing that they’re not just about creating an eco-friendly product, but also giving back to the environment through partnerships with marine conservation initiatives like Live Ocean and supporting period education through The Period Place, makes me feel even more connected to their mission. It’s a brand that’s truly making waves for a better world!

I've been using the Midi for over 6 months now! I'd never used a cup before, but am happy to say I'm a convert. Its easy to use and very comfortable. I have very heavy periods and its holds so much more liquid than pads and tampons and I feel less self conscious of leaks. I even used it on a long plane journey recently while wearing white pants and it passed the test. I love the ethos behind the brand! I would definitely recommend Coralcone to all my friends.
- Melissa, New Zealand
I've been using Coralcone for almost 6 months now and it has truly improved my life! The first thing I noticed is how comfortable it is. The design is so thoughtful and makes using Coralcone effortless; from the texture of the silicone, the shape of the rim and pour spout to the grip ridges, dimples and ribbon at the bottom. It is such a relief to not use pads and tampons anymore, especially living in a climate that is hot and humid all year.
- Tanya C, Singapore
What I Immediately Noticed Is The Grips. Very Important For Those Of Us Living With Disabilities. When My Pelvis Was Shattered, I Was Unable To Use A Tampon. The Pad Always Leaked Onto My Wheelchair And Bed. I Knew Using A Cup Would Be My Only Option. Having A Uterus Which Fluctuates Effects Which Cup Is Most Comfortable. Not Having Feelings In My Pelvis Effects How Often I Need To Empty. Long Story Short, I Was Able To Comfortably Wear Coral Cone Size 1 On My Low Cervix And Light Day. During My Heavy Days, I Wear The Size 2. I Change 4-5 Times (I Clot A Lot) But I'm Able To Feel (Comfortably) When It's Time To Empty.
- Camilla, USA
Not only does Coralcone have a great ethos and aesthetic, the cup is also great to use. The silicone is super soft and the ribbon makes is easy to locate when needed. A fantastic product.
- Rachel L, New Zealand
The difference is in the detail of the Coralcone cup - and it's a difference you can feel. It's obvious that a lot of consideration has gone in to crafting a cup that is really comfortable and leaves you feeling very confident in using it. Personally, I love the softness of the Coralcone cup (others I've found too rigid). I don't have any issues with leaks (which I've had in the past with other cups). Of course the ethos of the company is also a big driver, knowing that so much consideration has gone into more eco-conscious packaging materials and supporting ocean initiatives.
- Monica S, New Zealand
I have tried several other brands and always struggled with removing. Coral Cone has such a great design and the removable ribbon really helps with locating the cup. The cup opens well and is comfortable to wear. I bought the pack with the two different sizes and use both for different parts of my cycle. They've thought of everything. The ribbon is a game changer. The design of the top of the cup also prevents it from getting stuck inside.
- Laura F, New Zealand
Coralcone is an awesome product. Since this is my first time using a menstrual cup, I prefer to choose Coralcone to get the best experience. I like its eco-friendly philosophy, appearance and its comfortable design. Most importantly, its top quality makes me feel confident to place it in flora as always. Once I used it the first time, I fall in love with its convenience and never worry about a leaky night.
- Ivy Z, New Zealand
I really love the colours. Coralcones colour and noticeably higher quality material makes the product feel luxury. Plus after a while most lighter coloured /different material cones are prone to discolouration. I like that you can adjust the detachable ribbon and ergonomic lines - I don’t know if it’s a design thing or aesthetic thing but I like it and I guess also everyone’s vaginas are different sizes, shapes and lengths. Also the small cone is perfect for the beginning and end of your period when it’s lighter. I bought this product online and had it sent to a friend in NZ who then bought it back for me. I like their ethos and dedication to the ocean while still being a classy and Beautiful.
- Cel W, United Kingdom
I’ve used their menstrual cups for over a year and truly love them. I change my cup every morning when I wake up and at night when I shower; I love how easy they are to use and how there’s no waste like with tampons. I’m very happy with my menstrual cup and can see myself using these for the rest of my life!
- Lucy G, New Zealand
Best period cup I've used! No spillage, no uncomfortable suction upon removal, no ugly staining, easy to grip, easy to clean, soo much easier to insert! I've also experienced some pain in the past with other cups but this one is so much more comfortable.
- Ellana, Australia
Great, super comfortable design and the perfect option for girls like myself who spend a lot of time out on the boat or diving! A one time purchase that lasts for years!
- Esther, New Zealand
This cup is amazing! I am 13 and started out with a high cervix cup as I couldn’t feel my cervix no matter what I did, but my cup always stuck out. I went for the coral cone and tried it with the stem for a couple days, and decided I would try without. It is great to not feel anything and forget it’s there, and it’s not too hard to get out, thanks to the dimples at the bottom and the grip rings, I also don’t have night leaks anymore, so the diameter is perfect, even on the mini! Love this cup!
- Tessa, New Zealand
The Coralcone team know all about vaginas and designed a menstrual cup that is soft, flexible and comfy! Easy to use and the lip and tag is life-changing! I love their approach to women's health and the way they support the environment.
- Lauren, New Zealand
Coralcone is a comfortable cup that puts no strain on my body when it needs to flow and while it does take some practice getting started, already I know the health benefits outweigh my fears of insertion/removal (it gets easier with practice) and the hassle of cleaning the cup when outside my home (carry one spare). Health for my body and for the environment is well-worth the long-term investment in Coralcones. At that, I bought a whole lot to gift to my beloved girlfriends because it isn't every day that one comes across a product that delivers so much!
- Jacqueline, China
Coralcone has been in my life for two cycles now and I will never go through another flow cycle without it. I was intimidated at first because I've always had a heavy flow so much that I would inevitably leak (even when using both a thick pad and a tampon), not to mention debilitating menstrual cramps on Day 2 and Day 3. But once I started using Coralcone, my menstrual cramps miraculously disappeared all together. I was curious and took a deep dive, educating myself on the benefits Coralcone can have on women's endocrine system over pads and tampons. Medical-grade silicone does it's magic when it comes to inserting my mini and midi cones and leaving them up there for double time.
- Catherine, China
I have really appreciated the design and softness of the Coralcone cup. It does take a couple of cycles to get use to using it but all period cups would be like that. The indentation at the side is great as is the spiral pattern towards the base of the cup. The tag assists with easy guiding with inserting and removing. The softness of the cup makes such a difference. Thanks!
- Liz, New Zealand
I’ve tried a couple of menstrual cups and have found them to be too large or susceptible to leaks. The coral cone is the softest and easiest to use! I also love the eco-friendly and cute packaging and pouch.
- Sarah, New Zealand
This is the best cup I’ve tried yet- it has everything that I’ve been looking for! Easy and comfortable to use, and effective. All of the attention to detail really pays off.
- Monica, USA
As a 56 year old part-Maori mother of an 11year old girl, who arrived on your site following a Stuff story about period poverty. I just wanted to say WOW!! Your product, website and approach is awesome!
- Hinemoa, New Zealand
I am a Coralcone convert! I had used other products that were hard to get up and in correctly, caused leaks, etc. The Coralcone and it's brilliant design was so easy to get used to, and I had no trouble getting it properly in (thank you helpful instruction manual) and I had no leaks or any other mishaps. I love the little locator ribbon, and the ridges on the cone--it made getting the hang of it super easy. I love my Coralcone and the cute little carrying case--I am a menstrual cup convert and a Coralcone fan!
- Hannah, USA
I've been using the Coralcone for 4 months now and love it. The best thing about it is the ribbon. It makes it quick and easy to take out. I'm saving a lot of money and in these times, it's really important to assess where you can make savings that are also environmentally friendly. Give it a go!
- Kylie, New Zealand
My daughter received Coralcone as a birthday gift for her 16 birthday that’s she’s been wanting it for some time now and could use as she’s getting her period. She says she doesn’t want any other brand besides Coralcone as she says you are the best and loves how eco-friendly it is.
- Isabella, New Zealand
All of my friends have had disasters trying various different cups so I was pretty apprehensive to try one for the first time. I kid you not when I say it went it FLAWLESSLY THE VERY FIRST TIME. I couldn't feel it at all and it was wildly uneventful. Taking it out for the first time would have been pretty stressful without the extra strap to guide the way too, thank christ. It took a wee bit of time (and bravery) to figure out removal but it got speedier after that. As a very first time cup user, I really can't rave more about how effortless this was. Buy it for all the menstruators in your life. Really really.
- Rachel, New Zealand
I have a very heavy clotting period and the pressure and pain from clots building up around a tampons really hurts me! The clots have no where to go until I release the tampon. Now with the cup the clots rest in there until it is emptied! Genius. Every parent should be introducing their newly menstruating daughters to Coralcone, it’s a game changer, I know it would have empowered me as a young woman.
- May, New Zealand
I love wearing the cup to bed as I used to worry about toxic shock syndrome with tampons, now I sleep with ease for as long as the cups capacity allows.
- Sahara, New Zealand
Thanks so much Coralcone for helping me make the switch for both the benefit of my body and the environment! I love the fact that I know don’t have to carry tampons around with me. The only period device I have I carry around inside of me. This increases my time frame for shopping by hours. I can’t wait to try this baby out with international travel. I found it strange at first that I would take the cup out, empty it, then reinsert it with out the need to give it a thorough clean. Isn’t the women's body amazing and although a period involves blood, it is so hygienic. I do love changing my cup in the shower as I find it is a much cleaner process.
- Emma, New Zealand
On day 2 of using my Coralcone and have to say I am impressed! This is the 4th menstrual cup I’ve tried and it leaves the others for dust. So comfortable. Incredibly impressed with the website, the product itself (made in NZ! Epic!) and the speedy shipping.
- Nic, New Zealand
Coralcone is my first experience with a menstrual cup and I’ve definitely been converted. Such a sleek design, easy to insert and very comfortable. Being environmentally conscious myself I love Coralcone’s reusability and it’s thoughtful packaging. I am confident Coralcone is the sustainable future of NZ feminine products.
- Janelle, New Zealand
Absolutely love my Coralcone, I’ve been contemplating over getting a cup for ages but was always hesitant as I wasn't sure if it would be comfortable. This cup is amazing as it feels like I’m not wearing a cup and it’s super easy to use.
- Natasha, New Zealand
They are better than my other cups, more comfy and def didn’t feel like I was going to lose it. They are awesome.
- Tracy, New Zealand
First try with the Coralcone and I couldn’t fault the whole experience. Sooooo much easier to remove than the last one I tried. I love how soft it is!
- Sarah, Australia
The Coralcone is my favourite one I’ve tried so far. Very easy application and the ribbon makes it even easier to empty. Very sturdy with no leakage all day.
- Jess, New Zealand
I'm using the Coralcone for the first time and it's FREAKING EXCELLENT!!!! I keep waiting for a disaster like with the other cup I've tried, but nope! It's literally leak proof.
- Lucy, New Zealand
I have used a number of different cup brands, but Coralcone is by far the softest and easiest to insert. The ribbon is much more comfortable than stems on other cups. Definitely recommended!!
- Jacinta, Australia
I just tried Coralcone and I’m super happy with how easy it is to use! From previous experience using a menstruation cup, I assumed the complicated process of insertion was a necessary evil. It was such an effort to get it into the right position to avoid leaking. Coralcone isn’t difficult to insert at all and it’s such a relief! I also like that there are two sizes, so I don’t have to use the bigger one at the end of my period. Even though I have given birth twice, the small size works well. Having my period will be easy from now on. Thank you!
- Benedikte, Norway
The Coralcone cup was soft, easy to insert and very comfortable. I have found the silicone of other cups to be quite hard and don’t easily fold for insertion. I would definitely recommend Coralcone!
- Kate, New Zealand
As a first time menstrual cup user I had a very pleasurable experience using Coralcone. I frequently suffer from cramps and was worried it would affect my ability to use the cup effectively. However, the softness and perfect size of the small Coralcone cup meant I could insert it with ease and comfort. While the grooves at the bottom of the cup meant I could remove easily without fidgeting too much at a time when I’m cramping. All the while saving the bigger cup for days I wasn’t cramping. Super easy to use and reliable - no leaks! Definitely recommend.
