Which menstrual cup is right for me -which should I buy?
The most important factors to choosing a cup are:
1) Choose right length . You need a cup that can fit under your cervix and be a comfortable fit within your vagina. To determine what size you need it is first recommended that you measure how much space you have to your cervix. This is done by placing a finger inside the vagina to touch the cervix which feels often like a button or nose. You then withdraw the finger and measure the length. You then look at our cups section where you can choose cups as long or shorter than the length you measured. We provide information on the lengths of the cup, and of the cup with handle. You can remove handles from all cups bar Femmycycle so can consider the length of the cup alone but many folk do find it easier to use a cup with handle.
2) Consider your flow. If you have a heavy flow it is better to choose a cup with higher capacity such as the larger Mamicup, Femmycycles, Large and XL Me Luna, Size 3 and 4 Silja and the Medium and Large Luv Ur Body. In addition a lot of women give good feedback on the Fleurcup as it has a round shape allowing good capacity for its size. We show two measurements of capacity – to the air holes and to the rim. Some folk experience leaking through air holes whilst others don’t and can use the full capacity to the rim.
3) Choose right width (diameter). If you are used to inserting things in your vagina you will find it easier to wear medium to wider cups. If not you may wish to try narrower cups.
4) Consider the softness/firmness of the cup. Firmer cups are generally easier to pop open and get a seal on thereby minimising leaks. They are also better for those with stronger/firmer muscles who do regular sport as they stay open better. Softer cups are generally chosen by folk who have found a firmer cup pressing against them internally and found it uncomfortable. We would generally recommend that you choose a cup of soft/medium and firmer for a first cup especially for the Me Luna brand cups. Some new comers to cups can find it hard to get a seal on a soft cup.
5) Choose the right handle provided to remove/place the cup. There are a variety from a ring end to a ball end to a flexible stem to a hollow firm stem. Some cuppers prefer more flexible or ball handles. Handles that aren’t hollow are easier to clean. The handles on all cups other than Femmycycle can be removed if desired. Also a cup can be worn inside out to shorten it/ and or wear it without a handle
6) Lastly some folk may prefer certain colours or brand of cup.
