Picking Your Menstrual Cup Size
As you probably already know, the same size of menstrual cups may not satisfy the menstrual needs of every woman. The smaller sized cups are recommended for women with light to moderate flow, or who are younger, or have not experienced intercourse. Here is some more information about selecting the size that is right for you.
Smaller sized cups are available for teenagers and women who are more physically fit. For women who have stronger pelvic floor muscles due to regular exercise should opt for smaller sized cups as they might find larger cups uncomfortable.
The regular-sized cup is recommended for women who have a normal or heavier flow, or who have given birth vaginally or engaged in intercourse.
You'll want to also consider using a shorter cup if the cervix is sitting particularly low so that the cup fits naturally without causing you any discomfort. Thankfully with our Valve Menstrual cup, you can easily adjust the length of the stem.
You need to take the capacity of the cups into consideration as well. We are all different and so is our menstrual flow. Thanks to our valve drain cups, you can easily empty your cup whenever you wish and is convenient for you.
Menstrual cups are a good option for women with a heavy flow as they don’t have to worry about changing it regularly. The cups can be inserted once and be forgotten about for up to twelve hours. The regular cups have a higher capacity and thus hold more menstrual fluids.
Firm or Soft :
Another thing to consider when choosing a menstrual cup is the flexibility or the firmness of the cups. Most of us opt for softer cups as they are more comfortable but the firmer the cup, the easier it will be to pop open and seal on the vaginal wall. Still, as I mentioned we are all different and it depends on just how comfortable you are with your cup. Our Valve Menstrual cup has been designed to give you the softness you seek and the firmness for ease of use, you'll get the best of both worlds with our Valve Menstrual Cups.
