Menstrual Cup FAQ's

1. How do I know what size Menstrual Cup is right for me?

Pelvi Menstrual Cups come in 2 sizes: Size 1 and Size 2. The size is mostly related to childbirth history. Size 1 is for women who have not given birth or experience a light flow. Size 2 is for women who have given birth or experience a heavy flow.

2. How does a Menstrual Cup stay in position?

Pelvi Menstrual Cups are designed to stay in position by creating a firm seal when inserted. Menstrual Cups are inserted into the vagina right under the cervix and work with the vaginal wall to hold in place. Holes placed on the cup rim help create a firm seal.

Pelvi Menstrual Cups are designed for an active lifestyle; their unique design allows you to preform high impact sports without worrying about leaks or changes. Creating a seal the Menstrual Cup will not move or leak when exercising.

4. Can a Menstrual Cup get stuck internally?

It rarely occurs but if you relax, squat and genetly push the cup will be forced down so you can grab it. Remember, the aim is to break the seal.

Hold the cup with your thumb on one side, and your index and middle finger curved around the other side. Then, push your thumb in towards your index fingers so that the opening of the Menstrual Cup is pinched. For first time users try removing and inserting your Menstrual Cup in the shower.
