With very few exceptions we can confidently say that there IS a menstrual cup that will work for everyone. That perfect fitting, perfect feeling, perfect sealing cup is referred to as “Goldilocks.” Not too firm, not too soft, not too long, not too short — this cup is practically tailor made for your vagina and fits just right.
Finding that perfect cup is not always easy. Sure, some people get lucky with their first cup but for the vast majority of us we need to buy a second one. The second time is the charm because this time you KNOW what you want and what the next cup should be. You consider what you like and what you don’t like about you cup “my next cup needs to be a tad shorter for my low cervix days, maybe a bit softer because I have a little pressure when I urinate, and maybe this time I look for one with a bullet shape to keep it from shifting sideways too much during wear.”
In your mind you have designed your Goldilocks but how do you find it in the vast sea of options? Googling isn’t going to get your results for you, that’s where the PACII resources come in extra handy!
We also have one more tool for you!
The menstrual cup community at large! The Put A Cup In It group on Facebook is a fast-growing community of new and experienced menstrual cup users. It’s a great place to crowdsource.
