Best menstrual cup for teenagers

Can teens use a menstrual cup? The answer is: Yes! In fact, a menstrual cup is perfect for you if you're a teen. If you're a teen and are heavily involved in sports, then a menstrual cup is perfect for you. If you're a teen and you can't use tampons or pads, then a menstrual cup is perfect for you. And the list goes on. The next thing you might be wondering as a teenager is: Exactly which menstrual cup should I get? Typically, smaller sized menstrual cups are recommended for teenagers. Let's take a look at the options available!

Find my perfect menstrual cup

Hello Cup XS

First up we have the Hello "teen" menstrual cup, also known as the Hello Cup XS.

The "XS" stands for extra small.

The Hello menstrual cups are made of TPE (Thermoplastic elastomers) which means they have different properties compared to their medical-grade silicone counterparts.

When heated, TPE has the unique ability to create a more custom fit by molding to your shape.

Capacity: 17.5 ml

MeLuna Standard Classic Small

MeLuna offers an immense amount of choices for its customers.

Here are some of the criteria for what makes a great teen menstrual cup according to them:

1. "It needs to be narrow so that there is no pressure felt when the cup is worn. A narrower cup is also easier to fold into a small shape for easy, pain-free insertion and removal."

2. "The handles need to be easy to grasp for new users but flexible so that they don't cause discomfort."

3. "Shorter is not always better and longer is often uncomfortable. Most teens have average cervix height and do not need shorty cups. In fact, using a shorty cup when it's not needed can make the cup more prone to leaking and the menstrual cup can be difficult to reach for removal in users with regular cervix height. At the same time, a menstrual cup that's very long can protrude and be painful. The MeLuna Classic Standard menstrual cup in small is the perfect height for growing bodies: not too tall to where it pokes you, not too short where it gets difficult to grasp the cup for removal."

4. "Your period is not an illness. It's perfectly fine to have a little fun with gorgeous colors. Pick your favorite MeLuna menstrual cup color and you're are all set!"

Capacity: 23 ml
