Menstrual Cup Quiz
There are a number of important factors that go into finding the best menstrual cup and it’s really important you understand those factors before attempting to take a menstrual cup quiz.
Even the best menstrual cup quiz won’t be able to take into account all of your personal circumstances, which is why you need to understand the theory behind the quiz in order to interpret the quiz results.
I can do all of the menstrual cup reviews I like and recommend any number of the popular menstrual cup brands but the best menstrual cup for me is not necessarily going to be the best menstrual cup for you.
What factors matter when choosing a menstrual cup?
We are all unique and our internal reproductive anatomy is also unique to each of us. A cup that works well for your bestie, might not work for you!
As you’ll learn, if you haven’t already, we each have our own cervix height. Some of us will have a low cervix, some of us will have a high cervix, knowing the height of your cervix is important in choosing the right size cup.
If you have a high cervix you’ll need a longer cup and if you have a low cervix you’ll need a shorter cup. You can learn more about how to find your cervix and measure the height of it in my free menstrual cup guide.

Of course we also all have a different flow. There are small cups and large cups and they are capable of holding different capacities.
A cup with a greater capacity will be helpful if you have a heavy flow and a smaller size cup may be suitable if you have a lighter flow.
Most menstrual cup brands will make their cups in at least two different sizes.
Generally they will relate cup size to your age or whether you have given birth vaginally before.
But it’s good to look beyond these generic sizing guidelines to ensure you have taken everything into consideration.
Some cup brands like Diva Cup and Hello Cup now have three cup sizes, with the smallest size targeted towards young teenagers using a cup for the first time.
There’s a lot that goes into choosing a menstrual cup and then learning how to use it.
