What is a menstrual cup

If you haven’t seen or heard of a menstrual cup before, then you might be wondering what on earth one is. To put it simply they are a soft cup made from medical grade silicone. This is then worn in the vagina during your period.

Unlike tampons, menstrual cups are not absorbent. This means they don’t soak up your bodies natural lubricants, and won’t dry you out. To use you simply insert and then empty into the toilet at intervals during the day. You can rinse them out and then reinsert them.

You want me to put what where?!

When you first see a menstrual cup, you might be put off by the size or the idea of inserting it into yourself. In reality, though, they are surprisingly comfortable once you have them in. The cups are soft which means that you can fold them, in order to insert and then they ‘pop’ open once inside.

Once in you shouldn’t be able to feel them. They usually sit lower than a tampon. Some people find that they prefer to cut off the stem, as you shouldn’t be able to feel this once it’s in. To remove you break the seal and gently pull it out.

Three sizes

These cups come in three sizes. Small, which if for women under 30 who haven’t had a vaginal birth. Or Large which is for women over 30 or those that have given birth vaginally. (Because, sadly, as we all know, having babies and getting older doesn’t do much for our muscle tone down there.)

There’s isn’t a huge difference in size between the large and the small, but those few extra mm make all the difference. We also now have a mini cup for younger women, which is smaller again.

  • Teen diameter 39 mm diameter, 57 mm high with stem, 43 mm without stem; volume 18 ml
  • Small diameter 40 mm; length 70 mm high with stem; 45 mm without stem; volume 25 ml
  • Large diameter 45 mm; length 70 mm high with stem; 50 mm without stem; volume 30 ml

Entry-level menstrual cup

This particular cup is an entry-level menstrual cup, it is made from medical grade silicone. The mould leaves a seam on the outside of the cup. This should not affect comfort or durability of the menstrual cup.

    I found his painful. Maybe because it’s cheap the more expensive ones might be more comfortable I’m not not sure. Hated it and threw both sizes away

    I’m pleased I only spent $10 to try my first menstrual cup. The cup itself was fine, and shipping was prompt. I just think cups are Not for me!

    I think even though I went with the advice that the cup was too large and uncomfortable and unable to fully open.

    Too soft and doesn’t work for me. Almost impossible for it to open up inside of me. Tried every trick but no matter what there was almost always leaking due to it not opening properly. Would recommend a firmer cup to others that “pops” open.
