Capacity: approx 36ml
Length: 60mm from rim to base of cup, from rim to tip of stem 75mm
These sizing recommendations are a general guideline other factors you may need to consider are the strength of your pelvic floor muscles. If you fit most of the size 1 cup criteria but have very weak pelvic muscles then consider the size large cup. If you have a low sitting cervix then the size 1 cup will be a better fit. Some women find their cervix sits lower during the first 48 hours of their period then moves back to the higher position.
How often should I change my menstrual cup?
It is recommended the cup should be emptied, rinsed and reinserted every 4-8 hours, no more that 10 hours. it will vary greatly as every women’s cycle is so different. With a bit of practice you will quickly know how long you can leave it before emptying it during the different stages of your period.
