NOT SURE WHAT SIZE MENSTRUAL DISC OR MENSTRUAL CUP TO GET?
The Hello Disc™ is one size! Because menstrual discs sit high in the vagina (in an area known as the vagnical fornix) and don’t use suction, having a specific size is less important than it is with menstrual cups.
STEP 1. Use our cervix measurement guide to find out where your cervix sits.
We don’t like to sound bossy, but this is a really important step to ensure you get the cup that is right for you. We have Hello Cups available for all cervix heights: Low, Average and High. Find our cervix measurement guide here.
STEP 2. Take our size quiz to work out which Hello Cup best suits you.
HELLO CUP SIZE BREAKDOWN
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 their pelvic floor is not what it used to be.
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.

THE HOW-TO GUIDE TO YOUR FABULOUS REUSABLE MENSTRUAL CUP
Yes, the first time you see our reusable menstrual cups you could be forgiven for thinking “yikes, that looks big, how on earth do I get that up my vjayjay?” Once you've got it in correctly, you won’t feel it at all. Boom.
WE RECOMMEND A SHALLOW PUNCHDOWN FOLD FOR HELLO CUPS
We say ‘shallow’ because the key is to make sure the punch doesn't go below the letters on the side of the cup. Once you've nailed the fold, insert your Hello Cup. Once it pops open, give it a gentle tug to help it form a seal and you’re good to go. If it’s in correctly and is the right size, you shouldn’t get any leakage. Like most things in life, you might need to practice a bit until you’ve got the hang of it.
To remove your Hello Cup, feel for the base of the cup. Give it a gentle squeeze – this helps to break the seal – and pull down slowly. Once it’s out, simply tip the contents down the loo, rinse (or wipe if there’s no tap handy) and reinsert. Easy!
Once your period is over, we recommend you sterilise your Hello Cup either by using a 1/4 of a sterilisation tablet in a glass of water. You can also give it a quick 3 minute boil on the stove (don’t let the bottom touch the bottom of the pan though).
