How to care for your menstrual cup

PREP & WASH

  • Before using your cup for the first time, it’s always clever to make sure you have sterilised it properly. We have some handy cup-cup pots that can be popped in the microwave with your cup. If you don’t have one of those to hand, you can also put your cup in a mug or bowl and fill with boiling water. Leave it to bathe for a few minutes, and always make sure it’s air-dried cool enough before using!
  • Always sterilise before first use and after last use. You can rinse with clean water in-between changes.

Read our How to care for your cup blog to find out how to insert and remove your cup, and other advice.

 

What’s my size?

As a standard guide, we recommend using a small cup if you are 25 or under or have not given birth vaginally. If you are over 25 or have given birth vaginally, we would give a large a go.

You know your body best, and cup sizes can often vary from one individual to another. For example, if you have a petite frame, please keep that in mind when choosing your cup size.

SAFETY FIRST! If you have an IUD, the cup may not be the right product for you. If you have a contraceptive coil, always consult with your GP before using.

Our small cup measures at 7cm in length with a 4cm diameter, and our large is 7.5cm in length with a 4.5 diameter.

Yes of course! The cup is a great tool for anyone who wants to take on life as normal during their period. Swimming and exercising are perfectly safe to do whilst wearing a cup, just make sure she’s sealed in and it hasn’t been too long since you emptied – there’s less chance of any leaks if the cup is less full. Please remember to empty at least every 10-12 hours.

The cup is a rally handy tool for a carefree period, and for some it even allows them to escape period cramps! Cups can be used for any range of flow, but if you have a heavy period it may mean you just need to empty her a little more often than usual. It may be worth wearing a pad or pantyliner the first few times you wear your cup to understand how often you need to empty and make sure you are super comfortable to get out there and take on the world.

Ps. The cup doesn’t suit everyone – and that’s ok! If your body prefers to rock a pad or tampon, don’t fret about missing out on the cup. These products are here to make your life easier, so stick to whatever suits your flow.

 

SAFETY FIRST! If you have an IUD, the cup may not be the right product for you. If you have a contraceptive coil, always consult with your GP before using.

    This cup are just amazing. Cups are a game changers, but for a beginner like me could be hard find which one fits you and understand how does it work, so this is a perfect cup to start with and giving a try, because of the very reasonable price and good quality. The small cup is softer than the large. I have tried both and to me the large one is easier to insert and open up. Also I love the fact my bought will sustain sustain a mum & daughters business and that every box you buy they give a box away to a women in need. Special note to the customer service, they replied to me immediately sending me a period kit as well!

    Got myself a cup! Best decision, wish I had changed over years ago! Amazing organisation that donates a production every product sold. We need more of this.

    Hi there I had applied to sign up for a free menstrual cup trial a while ago and have only just got around to using it!
    I am in shock!
    This is such a great little thing! 100% better than using a tampon and I can definitely see the benefits of it after one nights use!
    I was sceptical at first but now I’m definitely converted! I’m glad a company like yours is giving some to girls in need with every purchase. I have told all my friends about my experience with your product and I hope they decide to give it a shot too!

    Total game changer, after not having periods for about 5 years due to the contraseptive injection iv recently changed to the implant, witch has ment my periods have come back, the first couple of months i used tampons or pads like i used to and relised how much i hate them! I feel dirty, irratated and just genrally down when i have to use them, i had seen a few cups online but i went to my local coop and saw they hey girl cup in there and for such an amazing price and the fact they donate one to a girl in need is just lovely! now all the ones i had seen online where between £16-£25 so i took the plunge and i will never look back! Its comftable clean no oder nothing i just go about my normal day witch involves horses and genrally being very active and not a single leak! 100% recomend to anyone and eveyone! Dosnt take long to get the hang of it!

  5. Kirsty Sharp

    Menstrual cups are defo a game changer. After 30-odd years of tampons and pads, I am looking forward to seeing out my diminishing period with a cup. Easy to use (once you get the hang of it), easy to sterilise , environmentally friendly, sustainable and cost effective. Wish these were around when I was a teenager.

    First time cup user but a def game changer. Very very easy to use and to not have a feeling of ‘oh no what if i’ve leaked’ when i stand up is brilliant. Thanks for a brilliant product.

    Amazing! It’s only my second cycle using it but I’ve (pretty much) got the hang of it and have found it to be, as people keep saying, a game changer! It feels great not faffing with tampons and feeling guilty about the waste, and the seal is so good I’ve been amazed that there are no leaks; you just forget you’re on your period! No hassle. Wonderful product and an excellent ethos. Feel proud to be part of this movement, thank you for making them!

    Okay so I’ve owned 2 cups prior to buying this one – the first a cheap one from eBay which was okay but got dirty fast and was a super flimsy material. The second was a branded official mooncup which was also okay but set me back £22!! And neither were leakproof in any capacity. But this one is fantastic. £12 with delivery, supporting an amazing cause and is 100% leak proof I can’t believe how good it is! Thank you for making such a high quality product for such a decent price, and for fighting period poverty. Great company through and through x

    Could not recommend this enough. My friend told me how her menstrual cup was a game changer so I surfed the internet and found this fantastic company that sell menstrual cups at such a reasonable price compared to others I’ve seen on the market. I can confirm that it is an absolute game changer, especially when it comes to sleeping and although it takes some getting used to, I’m just finishing my first cycle of use and it’s no where near as difficult to adjust to as the internet would have you believe (in my personal experience). If you’re on the fence or considering it, splash out the couple of pounds (it’s nothing really when you consider the cost of sanitary products and the tampon tax) YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. Great quality, less hassle, 100% would recommend the Hey Girl menstrual cup.

    First of all i want to thanks Hey girls delivery team, I ordered two cups on 28th of April and they arrived on 30th April, that is so quick. I am using menstural cup for eight months. What a good decision i ever made. They are a game changer. Very comfortable and if you wear it properly then you just can’t feel it. Heygirls is just a perfect cup like other expensive cups. High quality packaging and cup itself is a very good quality if I compare it with organicup. I bought two heygirls cups plus delivery £21 where organicup cost me £21 for one cup. 100% recommended.

    What a game changer this cup is, I absolutely love it and can’t believe how long it’s taken me to start using one.
    However, it does leak only when I run. Not sure why this happens but wish there was a solution.

    So easy to use. Can’t believe there are no leaks. Even with tampons (which are expensive in themselves) I was finding I still had to wear a pad because of leaks. Costing a small fortune every month! I spotted the Hey Girls cup in my local co op and was shocked at the price compared to others on the market it seems so cheap and I probably spend that on tampons, pads and night pads alone each month. When I read the box and it said buy one give one for women in need which is such a thoughtful thing for the company to do to help women in poverty who can’t afford period products.
    I’m so impressed with my cup! As I said no leaks and no mess. I hated dealing with tampons and pads. I was always scared to use a tampon at night as they are generally only meant for 4-6 hours. Even with night time pads it wasn’t enough, I’d wake up and straight away could feel that it had spread beyond the pad. Being able to wear the cup overnight has given me such relief. Using pads can be so messy and costly. The cup is so easy to insert and once its in you can’t feel it. Such peace of mind. Thank you for making such a wonderful product, at an amazing price that completely takes the hassle out of a period and makes me feel so much better!

    I am so unbelievably happy with my purchase of the menstrual cup! I suffer with heavy periods and so was quite sceptical of whether or not this cup could keep me leak free but it totally has. It’s easy to use, so comfortable and my period has been a lot less painful since using it too. Great to be able to support a small U.K. business as well as another woman in need. 10/10, I’ll never be going back to pads and tampons, thanks to this product!

    Absolutely love it. Applied for it through my colleges period campaign, delivery did take a long time (however this was most likely due to college). Have wanted to try one for a while and with so many different ones on the market it was hard to decide. So grateful I was given the opportunity to try this. There’s no going back now.

    It’s easy to use, takes a bit of getting used to but not nearly as scary a prospect as I worried for years a menstrual cup would be!

    Amazing price as well ?

    It might have been an unusually heavy day but the cup leaked a bit one day due to overfilling… Otherwise I think I’m pretty much a menstrual cup convert within one cycle. Removal is still a bit tricky!

    Absolutely love my hey girls menstral cup, been using my first one for around a year but time for a replacement. They come in cute packaging with a handy bag to keep it in inbetween periods. Really easy to put in and remove and much more environmentally friendly than pads or tampons. The nights of worrying about leaks is over. Added bonus is I get to help a girl who is experiencing period poverty. Also really affordable compared to other brands.

    I’ve struggled to use tampon since giving birth many years ago, but absolutely hate using towels. Not only was I aware of the smell, I was wary others may notice it too.
    Got this cup to try and haven’t looked back since. Bought another one which came with a cleaning brush and microwave sterilising pot too.
    Game changer!

    No leaks when I’ve worn it through the night or during a workout.

    I honestly could not fault this product. It’s amazing and has proved a lot easier to use (with a little bit of work) compared to using a pad or a tampon. The staff are just wonderful, any queries I had they answered them with honesty. Really recommend this product and the company 🙂

    Takes a few goes to get used to but an absolute game changer! I chose the large as I’ve had two children and I’m in my forties. I have heavy periods and this was much easier than having to change a pad or tampon every couple of hours. The Cup stays in place and is comfortable to wear. I wish I’d got one sooner!

    Quick delivery. Slightly larger than a previous cup I used from a different company – good! – but also slightly more rigid – not so good! Great colour, preferable to translucent. Works well, but prefer a slightly more squashable silicone. Like that you gift one of these to another woman and don’t overprice either. Thank you.

    I had been thinking of buying a cup for a while but stumbling across this gave me the push I needed. It wasn’t expensive and if I didn’t like it, at least I’d helped donate one to another girl/ woman who needed it. I didn’t want to review this until I gave it a go, so now I am near the end of my first cycle and my first ‘clean’ period! So the first three days were ok, the cup is easy to put in and out, but ensuring there is a seal is a bit tricky, especially as you don’t really know what to look for at the beginning. During the heavier days, I found it harder to put the cup in and took about 3/4 attempts to get it right (not a big deal if you’re doing it at home). Anyway, at times it’s no more uncomfortable than having a tampon in but it is definitely a lot cleaner! I’ve had a couple of leakages but this has been easily rectified and in total I have used 4 panty liners. I also suffer from period pains in my back, legs, and womb but I have only had a light touch of pain which doesn’t last long and disappears, so I’m extremely happy about that! I think it also helpful that you can see how much blood there is, as when you feel this on a pad/ tampon and leaking out of you, it feels like a tremendous amount and I generally feel quite grotty. Using the cup, I have felt clean, not sluggish and feel like this is the best period I’ve ever had! I would definitely recommend it and I agree, it’s a definite game changer!

    I’ve been mulling over a cup for a few years but always been scared about it getting stuck or leaking. I saw Hey girls in my supermarket, and even though I was 24 at the time (close to birthday), after thinking about it seriously (smaller size wasn’t there) I took a gamble and bought! It was super comfy, a little fiddly at times but man I love it! It does leak sometimes but I am super heavy. I went and bought another 1 week later and considering buying one more so I can keep it on my person at all times!!

    I bought period pants from another website, they’re amazing but wish I bought more than 1.. now I know you guys sell them im definitely going to buy them along with the reusable pads!! Fantastic company

    Why have I spent over a year toying with the idea of buying a cup? I spent far too long researching products and being undecided about taking the plunge. I bought this on a whim last week in Co-Op as it was so reasonably priced and liked the fact the company help period poverty. I have endometriosis and very heavy periods that can leak through a tampon in less than an hour. I spend my hours at work, at leisure and in sleep, worrying about leaks and throwing clothes into the wash. This little thing is a game changer. There should definitely be more awareness on how fantastic they are. So comfortable and totally leak proof. Get yourself one today as you won’t regret it!

    I have used a cup for many years, When my 11-year old daughter asked about the “rubber things” I used every month I told her about the menstrual cups and how good they were. She wanted to use one right away as she liked swimming. I bought her a Hey Girls small cup. It took her a few goes and some KY jelly but she eventually used it successfully and with only a little discomfort at first. Now she absolutely loves it and has converted most of her friends!
    Excellent!
