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.
