    Which menstrual cup is
    best for me?

    VOXAPOD Sizing Guide

    Most menstruators can wear either size of VOXAPOD® cups, however, we have found there are some general guidelines to consider when choosing the size cup that is best for you. Some brands recommend you choose a menstrual cup size based on your age, sexual activity, or birthing history, but we do not believe those to be accurate guidelines. Rather, it is best to consider your cervix height, menstrual flow, general physique, and vaginal wall strength.

    Sound complicated? We promise to make it easy! Let's break it down...

    Small Size Recommended For

    ______________________________

    Light to Medium Flow
    First-time cup users
    Low to Medium Cervix

    .

    Medium Size Recommended For

    ______________________________

    Medium to Heavy Flow
    High Capacity
    Longer Protection
    Medium to High Cervix

    Cervix Height

    Everyone's cervix is positioned differently within the vaginal canal. Some menstruators have a low sitting cervix and some a high. Also keep in mind, that for most menstruators their cervix will descend slightly in the vaginal canal during their menstrual cycle.
    With clean hands, gently insert your longest finger until you feel your cervix (donut shaped and feels like pursed lips) along the vaginal wall. It may be soft or firm depending on where you’re at in your cycle. The following describes the variation in measurement:

    Low Cervix: You can feel your cervix with your finger inserted less than half way.

    Medium Cervix: You can feel your cervix with your finger inserted to the middle knuckle.

    High Cervix: You can feel your cervix with your finger inserted beyond the middle knuckle or cannot reach your cervix at all.

    When VOXAPOD is inserted correctly, it should not cause discomfort. If the cup is inserted too deep into the vaginal canal and positioned in contact with the cervix, it can cause discomfort. For optimal comfort, your VOXAPOD should be positioned beneath the cervix.

    Low Cervix Note:

    VOXAPOD is one of the shortest and smallest menstrual cups on the market, making it an ideal menstrual cup for low cervix. The cup itself is designed to sit low away from the cervix at the base of the vaginal canal. The stem may be trimmed to a desired length for your comfort.

    Period Flow

    VOXAPOD® Menstrual Cup Small is designed to accommodate a Light to Medium Flow, while VOXAPOD® Menstrual Cup Medium has a high capacity designed to accommodate a Medium to Heavy Flow. Some menstruators prefer having both sizes to use at different points in their cycle.

    General Physique

    Everyone's body is unique and shaped slightly different. How VOXAPOD fits inside of you will vary from others. Your unique shape, pelvic muscle strength, and vaginal condition can determine which cup works better for you. Women whose pelvic floor muscles are strong often prefer VOXAPOD Small while women whose pelvic floor muscles are not as strong might prefer VOXAPOD Medium.

    Still in doubt?

    If you’re still asking, “what menstrual cup is best for me?”, from our experience, a combination of VOXAPOD Menstrual Cup Small and Medium can be optimal. Using VOXAPOD Small during your light days and when your cervix drops in your cycle, and using VOXAPOD Medium as a large capacity menstrual cup during your heavy days. Dual packs are offered at a discounted price.

    Remember that both cups can work for you. If you have a heavy flow and use a VOXAPOD Small, you would only need to empty it more frequently, and if you have a light flow and use a VOXAPOD Medium it will not be full when emptied.
