What size of cup should I choose?
When it comes to choosing the size of your menstrual cup, we usually recommend that women with heavy menstrual flow or who have given birth vaginally should use size 2. Women with light flow and who haven't had a vaginal birth should use size 1.
However, these are general guidelines. Knowing your body well will also help you to choose the size that's right for you. It's also important to know that there are no (excuse the pun) one-size-fits-all rules. Some women who have not given birth vaginally may be perfectly comfortable with size 2, while some women who have heavy flow but aren't used to using tampons, or who have quite a narrow vagina, may be more comfortable with size 1.
If you already use super or super-plus tampons, size 2 should work for you. If you're not used to wearing tampons or only use slim or mini tampons, opt for size 1.
It goes without saying that you should always take your anatomy into account – and everyone's anatomy is different. You can compare the dimensions of the different cups to work out which one is the best fit for your body.
If you don't want to worry about emptying your cup often during the first days of your period and/or when you have heavier flow, we recommend using size 2. Because it has a larger diameter than size 1, you can leave it in for longer. But if you're not comfortable with using the larger size, you can always use size 1 and simply empty it more often if necessary.
