The XO Flo by Gladrags is a high capacity cup which is great for women with a heavy flow!
Made from soft medical grade silicone, the XO Flo cup will collect (rather than absorb) menstrual fluid. Like other cups, the XO Flo can be worn for up to 8 hours (depending on your level of flow) and being reusable, should provide you with several years of period protection. This high capacity cup is also great for women who have a very heavy flow and find that they need to empty regular capacity cups more frequently during the day.
Removal Tip: Grab the stem of the XO Flo as high as possible in order to grasp the cup. The smallest bead at the base of the stem is designed to help you locate the cup, but is not designed to be tugged.
XO Flo Features:
- XO Flo Original holds 38 ml of fluid. This is around 10ml more than most other cup brands (which average around 27ml in the larger models). It’s greater capacity is due to its high rounded shape design.
- XO Flo’s soft beaded stem can be trimmed if it feels too long, but is also super comfortable for those who prefer to leave it 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.
- Includes storage pouch
- Made in the USA from smooth, flexible medical-grade silicone.

Care and Cleaning:
At the beginning of your cycle, give your cup a thorough wash with mild soap and water before using. You may like to use a menstrual cup cleaner for this task.
During your cycle, always rinse your menstrual cup with water after emptying and before reinsertion.
Once you reach the end of your cycle, wash and disinfect your menstrual cup. You may choose to disinfect your cup by carefully boiling it in an open pan for up to 5 minutes. Note that prolonged boiling may damage your cup. Alternatively, you can sterilise your cup using the Ruby Steriliser or a Microwave Steriliser Bag. Make sure the cup is completely dry before storing it in the drawstring fabric bag provided. It is not recommended to store your menstrual cup in a plastic bag or airtight container.
The XO Flo has two small holes near the top of the cup which should be kept clean. Do not use a toothpick or other sharp objects to clean the holes as this may damage the cup. Instead, submerge the cup in water and squeeze the water out through the holes. It is normal for your menstrual cup to slightly discolour over time. This does not impair its function.
IMPORTANT: Menstrual Cups have been associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is a rare but serious disease that may cause death. Always read and keep the information contained with your cup. Use only as directed. Discontinue use of this product and consult a GP if you experience any adverse side effects.
