In a separate 2019 study, 83% of women found Efemia greatly improved their lives, particularly everyday life.
When designing Efemia, special attention was paid to comfort and prevention of urine loss. The unique double-ring shape not only serves to reduce urine loss, but also maximisecomfort during insertion and carrying.
