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.

    Had to give up on it after a couple of days. It’s difficult to get into the right position and there were a few too many leaks for my liking. Maybe I’ll give it another try in future but it’s too inconvenient at the moment

    Nice texture and colour, however this cup is very soft and I have found it difficult to pop open once inserted, so shall be looking for a firmer cup.

    I ordered small however got the large, ended up trying them but they were far too big. Sadly I can’t pass them on so have two cups unable to be used

    Sadly I brought the wrong size. Purchased the large size (as recommended from information on website. 3 children and I’m 41) but it’s wayyyyy too large for me.

    I really didn’t get on with this. Putting it in was awkward though bearable, once in I couldn’t feel it at all so that was great. It was just taking it out – it was agony (and left a mess everywhere). I looked up advice and videos online and tried several times to master this but could not – it really hurt. In the end I decided not to continue trying. However, I am glad that there is something so cheap to try this out with. It’s not for me but may work for others, and at least I didn’t spend a fortune on it
