Choosing your first menstrual cup can be a daunting task with so many choices available on the market .This article will cover EVERYTHING there is to know about choosing a menstrual cup.
First of all, with menstrual cups becoming more and more popular, an influx of them are being manufactured. However, not all are of the same quality. It’s up to you to determine if you are willing to risk your health by choosing a cup that may have been made of questionable material or a cup that has been registered with its respected countries health & safety agency, (FDA – USA, TGA – Australia, Canada Heath, EMA – EU, etc). If you’re in doubt, visit the cups website, read reviews from other users who have experience with that particular brand, and seek information about them in forums or social platforms.
Many companies will have a size selection printed on the packaging based on your age or how many births you’ve had. However, these ‘rules’ aren’t always very accurate. One cup will NOT fit all. We are all different and so are cups.
Locating and measuring your cervix is one of the easiest ways to eliminate many cups that might not be comfortable or easy to work with your body. Cups come in all sorts of various shapes and sizes and while one might fit someone perfectly, it might feel uncomfortably long or be hard to reach for the next. You may also want to think about how light or heavy your flow is so that you can select a cup with a capacity to match. Even some shorter cups that are comfortable for a low cervix, have variations that allow for a higher capacity. These topics and more can be found at ‘How to Choose a Menstrual Cup’.

I really like using my menstrual cup but it rises too high for me to reach. I had to have removed by gynecologic and it cost me a visit. How can I prevent it from traveling? I use the femmycycle, is there another you would recommend? Thank you for advice.
Try tying a piece of thin thread around the stem of the cup. Just to pull it within finger reach.
Also, if you’re set on the design of a femmycycle, try this. I don’t like sticking my fingers in to pull it out, so I take waxed dental floss (recommended by femmycycle) and braid it so it is a strong hold, and loop it through the femmycycle ring. That way when I’m ready to take it out, I have a “string” to pull on. I replace the floss every time.
I think femmycycle is usually recommended for people with a low cervix during periods (i.e they actually have an issue getting the cup fully inside, as opposed to the cup going too far inside)…so it is among the much shorter ones. I think a normal length cup with a stem (which you can trim according to need) will do the trick for you. You can probably check the distance to your cervix and the length of the cup you want to buy. Maybe a firmer cup is also better to start with (as it seems easier to push out with the vaginal muscles during removal)…in case such a cup making your bladder uncomfy…you can maybe then switch to a softer/smaller radius cup.
So which brand do you recommend for that instead of femmycycle?
Another good cup which is fairly long is the lily cup but not Rhett compact one that is pretty soft the regular lily cup is just firm enough yet not too firm and it is nice and long so it is easier to reach
*The* not Rhett lol
The Diva cup is quite long, and widely available in actual stores if you live in the US (or Canada). Their website has a store locator that might help you find a local retailer!
Thanks for the reviews! These are awesome.
Took me a year to finally use menstrual cup correctly. Before it always leaked, poked and uncomfortable to use. Realy take your time to try it. Once you insert it correctly you wont feel any discomfort.
My silky cup is getting lickage in 2-3 hrs. Than how its 12hrs lickage proof period?
It will depend on your flow. Is the cup full to the rim when you take it out, then you have a heavy flow. Then you will need to empty more often.
Does anyone knows about MCup, the material is surgical silicone from Michigan but fabricated in Hong Kong.. ??
is it a safe cup?
Any comment about cups from China? Is it safe? Is it made of Masical silicone ?
