While the pandemic has been a big shit sandwich for us all, it has presented a unique opportunity for those who have been sitting on the fence about trying out a menstrual cup. In fact, the stay-at-home (period*), we reckon, has been the perfect time to try a healthier period alternative for yourself and the environment.
Woo-hoo! You’ve finally switched over to the sustainable period choice — a menstrual cup. Now that your Hello Cup menstrual cup has found its new home, there are a few pointers that we’d like to share with you to make sure your newfound bestie stays around in tip-top shape for years to come.
Menstrual cups may seem to be all of the rage now (and even more so with the pandemic). But, the truth of the matter is they’ve been around for a long time. Robyn shares some light on the origins of the beloved Menstrual cup
Vaginal cup, period cup, menstrual cup... Whatever you call it, The Hello Cup is a great choice.
It’s worth remembering that we don’t recommend buying your cup based on your flow alone. Instead, sizing is based on fitness and age.
Our XS is our smallest, softest cup. It’s the perfect choice for teenagers, petite users or those who prefer a ‘mini’ tampon.
Our S/M is our ‘one size fits most’ menstrual cup. We recommend it for users under 35 – regardless of whether they have had children or not.
Our L (L for ‘Lovely’) is best for those over 35 who feel it’s a bit more roomy up there.
It’s worth noting that we find physically fit people are often best suited to the S/M regardless of age. If you’re uncertain, Hello Double Boxes are a great option to help you find which size works best for you. Many people find they can wear two sizes.
