What Makes Hey Zomi Unique – Overview of Features
One Size Fits Most. The Hey Zomi menstrual disc is on the smaller side of “one size” menstrual discs. Because discs sit in a larger part of the body, the vaginal fornix, most people can use a disc that is in a range of 60-70 mm in diameter. Hey Zomi is 65 mm, the same as the popular reusable Cora Disc, and slightly smaller than brands like Hello Disc and Nixit.
Generous capacity of 52 ml means your Hey Zomi disc can hold back even heavy periods.
Single Loop – The Hey Zomi disc has a smooth removal loop attached to the front rim. This can be hooked by a finger or pinched.
Average Firmness. The firmness score for Hey Zomi is a 2.5-3 on our scale of 1-5, with 5 being the firmest. This puts it around the same firmness as Ziggy Disc. Firmness is always a subjective measurement for menstrual cups and discs. The rating was done by squeezing each product and comparing them one by one. I would say Hey Zomi is between a 2.5 – 3 and is definitely softer than other discs from Hello Disc, Flex, Cora, and Saalt.
How Hey Zomi Compares to Other Brands
Hey Zomi is one of the few brands of menstrual discs available in Australia but it can be purchased on their website and shipped to other countries as well, including the US. Like other brands with a removal loop. Hey Zomi offers an easier removal than discs without a removal aid. The loop is easy to find and in my own experience, the disc did not rotate during wear so it was always where it needed to be.
The loop’s size was larger than Hello Disc so it wasn’t as snug on one finger – for security I used my thumb to pinch the loop.
The rim is average and most people should find it easy to fold. The softer firmness of the disc did lead to more frequent self-emptying compared to other firm discs.

Best Way to Insert Hey Zomi
All menstrual discs fold the same way; just squeeze it longways and that’s it! For Hey Zomi you will want to make sure the loop is the last side to enter your body. Try to keep it centered while inserting. Angle the disc towards your tailbone and give the front rim a good tuck for security.

Best Way to Remove Hey Zomi
The shower is your friend! If this is your first menstrual disc removal try doing it in your shower. The shower is a nice safe space to be just in case there is any mess. Reach inside and feel for the Hey Zomi loop, pinch it with a finger and thumb or hook with one finger to drag the disc out of your body. Try to keep it more level as you remove it to minimize any spills. Let the disc fall backward while holding the loop firmly, to empty the contents.
Hey Zomi Review
I have been a fan of menstrual discs for several years now. I expected based on the design of Hey Zomi that this would be a successful product for me.
The Good: I experienced no leaks, no discomfort, and the disc was easy to find for removal. It was also easy to fold and insert. The disc didn’t rotate which meant every time I wanted to find the loop it was right where it needed to be.
The Bad: The softer firmness of the disc did lead to frequent self-emptying. One day it seemed like I emptied every bathroom visit. I usually need to exert more effort to self-empty but this disc was less controllable. I enjoy the option to self-empty but it happened more frequently than I’d like.
The other issue was that removals, while easy, were a little “messier” than I expected with the loop. Depending on the day I had a small amount of blood or more than a small amount on my fingers. As shown in the video, my attempt at a “single-finger removal” backfired and the disc dumped entirely into my hand. On lighter days I had no mess removals.
Hey Zomi is a new brand with a nice, simple disc design. I like the single loop but for me I need a slightly firmer disc. For those who need a softer firmness or perhaps an easier-to-fold disc this is a great option. It’s also available in a black shade which is always a bonus.
My ratings are based on one full cycle using Hey Zomi. 5 blood drops = a perfect rating. The only place I can remove any points from is the “overall” section, due to the frequent auto-dumping.
