What is the nixit Menstrual Disc?

Definition of ‘nix’: nothing, put an end to, refusal, cancel. nixit. Period!

The founders of nixit have made it their aim to nix the stigmas and shame that surround menstruation. Enough is enough! They’re encouraging women everywhere to nix the pads and tampons that have been used for so long without question and make the switch to a more comfortable and more sustainable way to manage their period.

The nixit is a menstrual disc and is designed to sit above the vaginal canal – rather than lower in the vaginal canal like a traditional style cup. The nixit holds itself in place naturally, so you don’t experience any scary suction surprises, and like other menstrual discs, can be used for mess-free period sex. The double rim of the nixit is firm enough to provide great leak protection, while the cup base is so thin and soft, you won’t feel a thing.

Given the different design of the nixit (and other menstrual discs), along with the fact it sits differently within the vagina, this product may be a good option for women with a tilted/retroverted uterus who have struggled with traditional style menstrual cups.

nixit Features:

  • Made from 100% medical-grade silicone that is ultra-soft, thin, and flexible.
  • BPA free
  • Holds up to 70ml! That is a huge capacity and equivalent to 4 super tampons
  • Lasts up to 5 years
  • Double rim for extra protection
  • Circular design to enable the nixit to conform to different anatomies
  • One size fits all
  • Stem free
  • The nixit is designed to stay in place naturally. There is no suction, which helps make removal easier
  • Suitable for use during sex
  • Can be worn for up to 8 hours
  • Free from chemicals and toxins so as not to dry out or disrupt your natural vaginal flora
  • Each nixit comes with its own cotton storage pouch, and the innovative box is designed so that you can keep it and reuse it.
  • Made in Canada

Sizing Guide:

The nixit menstrual disc is a one size fits all model.

How to use the nixit Menstrual Disc:


  1. Before first using your nixit and at the end of each cycle, sterilize the disc by boiling it in water for 5 minutes.
  2. Wash your hands thoroughly.
  3. Hold the nixit between your thumb and forefinger. Squeeze the rim together to create a ‘figure 8’ shape.
  4. Sit on tippy toes and glide the nixt back and down towards your tailbone. Insert as far as it will go.
  5. Use your index finger to push the front rim of the disc up behind your pubic bone.

To check insertion, keep your index finger on the rim of the nixit as you stand up. If it is inserted correctly, it will remain tucked up and in its place.

You can wear your nixit for up to 8 hours before needing to remove and empty it.


  1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
    2 Bear down with your muscles and use your forefinger to untuck the front rim down and away from your pubic bone.
  2. Pull towards you, keeping it level to help avoid spillage.
  3. Empty contents into a sink or toilet.
  4. Rinse and reinsert.

How to use Nixit

How to Clean the nixit Menstrual Disc:

 During your cycle, simply rinse the nixit under cold water. It can also be given a more thorough clean using any brand of menstrual cup cleanser.

Between cycles, sterilise your nixit by placing it in boiling water for 5 minutes. Try to ensure it doesn’t touch the bottom of the pot and get damaged. The nixit can also be sterilised using a microwave menstrual cup steriliser.

After boiling, place the nixit on an absorbent surface to completely air dry. Once dry, store your nixit in its storage bag or box until next needed.

    Decided to try nexit as an alternative to a silicone cup.
    Pros can leave in longer, easy to insert,having a heavy period it so convenient being able to leave longer as it seems to hold more, eliminates any discomfort internally from repeated removal.
    Cons only one, I haven’t quite mastered removal without being quite messy, as per other recommendations you can remove in the shower. Much as I have loved the silicone cup I definitely recommend this over the cup based mostly on the comfort of wearing ease of insertion and longer working time.

    The Nixit cup is a game changer! Easy to insert, stays in place, and simple to remove. The Nixit cup is so comfortable I forget I have it in. Would highly recommend!

    This is the first mestrual disk I’ve tried, only 2 days in I’m totally converted, cups were ok but this is perfect!

  5. Beth (verified owner)

    I found the Nixit disc quite uncomfortable to wear. I have a retroverted uterus and the disc puts pressure on my rectum the entire time I have it in. I was hoping the softer material and different shape would be a better option than a cup. Unfortunately, this was not the case.

  6. Angela (verified owner)

    The quality of the product was great, and would reccomend for people to try, but it just wasnt for me. I’ve used the lunette cup for years and thought I’d try something else with a large capacity, however I found it difficult to consistently get it to sit properly.

  7. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I love the texture, shape, and ease of insertion of the Nixit, especially when creating the figure ‘8’ shape with one hand to insert. This product does not feel uncomfortable when inserted. It is very difficult to remove as there is no pull cord or grip zone which means manipulating yourself into a position that enables you to obtain a strong grip with thumb and index finger to pull the Nixit out which for me has been very difficult and somewhat messy!
    Very easy to clean with toilet paper or cleaning wipes on the go.

  8. Laura (verified owner)

    Definitely going to get used to putting it in! Very different to my previous bell shaped cups. But worked perfectly for activities with my partner. Would 100% recommend.

    Great product!

    This is the best thing in the world. With the cup I almost always had a little leaking. I have only used this for one cycle but already feel confident in its ability. I read that the mess you get with a disc is the mess you expected before you used a cup. That is true, but worth it for feeling protected and dry.

    I’ve used a menstrual cup (Juju) for many years however there wasn’t a month that it didn’t leak, despite trying all troubleshoot suggestions. I have a tilted/retroverted uterus and cervix which I believe was causing all the leakage issues. So after doing some research I came across the Nixit “cup”. This is the first month in years that I haven’t leaked! Also to my surprise, I found it much easier to position correctly than the suction style cups, and it feels more comfortable. I’m absolutely thrilled and can’t be happier with my Nitix. Wish I made this purchase sooner. I highly recommend this style of menstrual cup/disc.

  12. Bonnie (verified owner)

    Nixit is OK, taking a bit to get used to after using a Juju cup. Maybe in a month or two placement will be easier. I love that it can last 12 hours if I get it right.

  13. Sarah (verified owner)

    The Nixit has been a game changer for me personally. I’ve been using a much loved cup for over six years, so it was an easy transition, no leaks. It’s comfortable, but being so soft, there is a knack to putting it in, as it tends to bend a bit, but once you get it, it’s easy.

    I am finding I’m preferring it more than my traditional style cup, and will switch to this full time.

    Mess-free playtime with the partner is also a big bonus.

    My second Nixit disc (only because I accidentally cooked my first). The best period product on the market! I have a retroverted uterus and after my cervix had dropped following my 3rd child, I couldn’t use a cup any longer. The Nixit disc is great no matter where the cervix sits. And I love the self-dump function so I don’t have to physically remove it to empty throughout the day – just twice a day while in the shower. No mess! And no odour!

  15. Lauren C. (verified owner)

    GAME CHANGER!!! I can’t even describe how much I love nixit! I wish I had known about it years ago!

  16. Tara S. (verified owner)

    The Nixit disk is extremely comfortable! And despite looking really big fits surprisingly easily! Ha! I’ve used a cup for years but since having babies have found the stem to be particularly uncomfortable and they seem to leak despite trying a few different options. I did find the Nixit leaked when I went to the toilet which has been mentioned, however it never leaked outside of this. I am still getting used to removing it and the shower is the best option for the mess I’m currently making! So for comfort 5 stars but general ease of use just 4, would definitely recommend if comfort is your issue with cups.

    Best cup option I have found. Can’t feel it at all, only empty every 12 hours. Simple to insert once you know the process.

  19. Elly (verified owner)

    Quality product. Clear instructions.

  20. Sasha (verified owner)

    A purchase you won’t regret. Does everything it claims to and is so much easier to use than a traditional (suction) menstrual cup!

  21. Jessie (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this! Super comfortable and easy to insert – I’m still learning how to do it best, but can already tell I’m in love with this cup!

  22. Cheryl (verified owner)

    Only used once so far. Not sure it’s for me but will definitely use it overnight as it holds better without moving about. It’s a bit clumsy with insertion and ideally would need to be done in a single toilet to access the taps for cleaning as it can be rather messy. Practise makes perfect I guess

    Difficult to inset but Very comfortable

    Absolutely game changing product; very easy to use and clean. My new monthly go-to!

    I’ve used this for two years and not once has it ever leaked.

  27. Anonymous (verified owner)

    The nixit is LIFE CHANGING. I’ve been using menstrual cups for 4 years and always struggled with leaks. I have a retroverted uterus so finding my fit was so difficult.

    With the nixit it’s eliminated all problems from day 1! it was first cycle since getting my period 10 years ago with no leaking!

    Best menstrual experience I’ve ever had. I have a retroverted uterus, and a low / tilted cervix position. The nixit sits great and is very very comfortable for me.

    I use menstrual underwear as back up just in case. Another person in reviews mentioned if you beardown the cup will leak a tiny bit. I’ve found this the case too but only when I make a really good effort. And this is actually useful when trying to remove and empty the cup.

    I was previously a troubled applicator tampon user and would frequently get leaks and cervix discomfort (applicators helped with positioning tampons for my low cervix, and I’ve got sensory issues with using pads / menstrual underwear by themselves on heavier flow days).

    Using this cup has helped me so much. I am never going back! I’m a cup convert!

    The Nixit cup is great! I have a copper IUD and had issues with a traditional cup due to the suction. The Nixit is so much easier to use and I have had no issues with leaking. It is much more comfortable and I can’t feel it at all. I have not experienced any staining of the cup yet and clean it before and after each period with boiling water and cup cleanser during my period.

    Disc convert! I’ve been using cups for years. Love the ease and environmental benefits, but leakage has always been an issue. There’s a science to getting the securing the cup that even after years I could never seem to get consistently. That’s what made me want to try a disk, as it doesn’t require suction to create the seal, and holds more volume.

    First cycle with the Nixit and I went from constant leaks with a cup to zero leaks with the disk! The only time I did ‘leak’ with the cup is when I bare down in my pelvis. Happened once first day when I lifted something heavy (but I was able to avoid that by being mindful how I lifted the rest of the period). However this same action comes in pretty handy when you’re over the toilet, as baring down emptied the some of contents. Handy if you’re nervy about overflowing.

    I quickly learned to reduce mess on removal of the disc, but not elimate. Cup wins with mess-free removal, discs you just need to mix up baring down then horizontal removal, but there’s no skill to come away with clean hands. Not a deal breaker for me as it’s in the privacy of the bathroom.

    Easy to get it, feel nothing when it’s in, zero unexpected leaks for me, autodumping while over the toilet gave extra peace of mind. I’m okay with a bit spillage on removal if it means zero unexpected spillage during the rest of my day and night. Love it and highly recommend for leak-free periods.

    First time cup user and I’m so impressed! I’d been hesitant for a long time about switching to a cup, because of all the choices – sizes, body types, conflicting reviews. I decided to try nixit because it’s one-size, and there’s no stem or suction. It’s so easy to insert (I got it right on the first try) and very comfortable (I don’t feel it at all). I do find it a bit tricky and messy to remove so I’ve been removing it in the shower. I think it’ll get easier with practice. It does leak a tiny bit when I pee, apparently it’s something to do with it moving around when we bear down to pee. But it moves back into place after and stays leak free. Highly recommended!

    I’ve had 3 vaginal deliveries, as well as a slight prolapse…. honestly I’ve tried a few times and it pushes quite uncomfortably on my bladder and doesn’t seem to stay up. It’s much larger than I was expecting and just not right for me. I wish it was! Fantastic design etc just not right for my body x
