We get this question a lot.
And the fact is, there is no such thing as a “best” menstrual cup.
Firstly, there are over 200 menstrual cup brands in the world - the cups; they all come in different shapes and sizes.
And secondly, all bodies are different.
So how do you know which menstrual cup is the best one for your body?
Well, when it comes to choosing a menstrual cup there are a couple of things you need to be aware of:
There are other parameters as well but these are the most important ones (more about these other parameters later).
Let’s break these down one by one and see what their role is in choosing a menstrual cup.
This one is pretty straight forward to grasp.
It’s about being able to describe your flow.
Is it Light?
Or Very Heavy?
If you have a light period, consider a low capacity menstrual cup.
If you have a normal period, look for an average capacity menstrual cup.
If you have a heavy period, opt for a high capacity menstrual cup.
Next, we have the cervix.
First things first, what is a cervix?
The cervix is a wonderful thing - it’s the part of your body that connects the uterus (womb) to the vagina. The cervix allows flow of menstrual blood from the uterus into the vagina. It also directs the sperms into the uterus during intercourse.
Okay, but what’s the cervix got to do with menstrual cups?
Well, to not make this too long and confusing, know this:
If you have a low cervix and your menstrual cup is too tall, then you might experience leakage or discomfort.
On the other hand, if you have a high cervix and your menstrual cup is too short, you might struggle with finding your menstrual cup once inside you.
The answer to this problem or question above is simply:
If you have a high cervix, use a high cervix menstrual cup. If you have a low cervix, use a low cervix menstrual cup.
A menstrual cup should be able to pop open easily once inserted but at the same time should feel comfortable while wearing.
Your pelvic floor muscles, or vaginal muscles, play a vital role here.
The tighter, or more toned, they are, the firmer menstrual cup you’ll need.
There’s a strong correlation between toned pelvic floor muscles and a higher level of physical activity.
And according to our observations, the majority of athletic or very active women prefer a firmer menstrual cup.
So, if you’re not very active, then look for a soft to average cup.
If you’re very active or an athlete, go with a firm cup.
How old you are, if you have given birth, if you are allergic to any of the materials that menstrual cups usually are made of (medical-grade silicone, TPE, or latex) also influence the type of menstrual cup you should or should not buy.
A sensitive bladder is also something some people will want to take into consideration.
