Low Cervix Menstrual Cups — A Put A Cup In It Guide

If you’re looking for low cervix menstrual cups, you’ve come to the right place. Before choosing a low cervix model it is important to be sure that you actually need it. Shorter cups offer less capacity and too short of a cup can make reaching it for removal more difficult. If you are unsure of how to measure your cervix, please reference our video below.

  • I’m just purchased the super Jennie cup bc I have a heavy flow. The capacity is great but it seems to be wanting to come out. I cough and I can feel it coming out. Does this mean I have a low cerfix and may need a shirt cup? I still need something that holds as much fluid as a super Jennie. Please help!

  • Hey, can I suggest the small size of the Tampax cup be added to the list of low cervix cups? By dimensions alone, it qualifies.

    Additionally, here’s my review: I have a low cervix (well, definitely low during the heaviest three days of my period, and that’s what counts), and it works very well for me. I have very heavy flow, from mild PCOS and hypothyroidism, and the only difference I have found between this and the Lena I have is that the Tampax cup is more comfortable to wear – the dumping frequency is identical. Also, I’m a mom of 2 and in my forties and the small size fits just fine.

    • Thank you SO much for this! I live in Canada, and the recommendations (from the quiz) I can’t easily get. I am a mom of 3, in my forties with a low cervix. This comment made my life a heck of a lot easier!

  • It would be nice if you can note which are available in Canada (or other countries), as I’ve found that most of these are not!

  • Hi there!

    So I’m looking at making the switch to cups but have realized I have a really low cervix while on my period (think not even 2nd knuckle on day one but more than 2nd knuckle on day 3). Any recommendations on what I can get? Also, that cup needs to be shipped internationally because I live outside the US. Would appreciate any help with this, thank you in advance!

    • I’m looking for a shorter, slighly firm cup with a good capacity. I think my Sckoon (too soft) and Lena (maybe too firm) are too long for my first few days when my cervix is low and I have a pretty heavy flow those days because I get leaking which I think is from the cup going past my cervix…maybe? I’m considering the MeLuna Shorty Large, but I’m concerned it won’t have a big enough capacity. Any tips?

  • Hello! I need some help to choose my menstrual cup. I was reading about cup options and I’m not sure which one is the best for for me. I have a low cervix during my period and I tried many cups without any good results. I have been trying for more than a year and they always leak on my heavy days. I also think that I have a narrow canal, because I tried Merula cup and I found it really hard to pop open and it makes lot of pressure on my bladder, making me feel that want to pee all the time and it could be sore sometimes.
    I did your quiz and seems that juju cup is the best for me, but I’m Hello! I need some help to choose my menstrual cup.

    I did your quiz and It seems that juju cup is the best for me, but I’m wondering if it is too wide. Would Femicycle be a good option?
    Thanks for your help! I love this website!

  • Hi! I need some help to find my perfect cup. I have been trying different cups for more than a year and I had troubles every time. They always leak! I realised that I have a low cervix and it moves and tiltes during my heavy days. I also think that I have a narrow canal for my age (28). I tried Merula cup and I found it quite uncomfortable, it makes pressure on my bladder and sometimes can be sore.When I insert Merula cup the rim opens but the cup is squished, and after a few minutes opens completely and becomes sore.
    I did you quiz and Juju cup seems to be the best option for me, but I’m wondering if it’s too wide. Could Femicycle be better option? Which cup would you recommend? Thank you so much! I love your website!

  • Hey,
    I’ve been trying menstrual cups for a minute, and am having a lot of trouble. I am 14, have a low-average, tilted cervix and have severe menstrual cramps. I have tried both the Lily cup compact and the Lily cup one, both gave me painful bladder pressure and suctioned onto my cervix. I’ve been looking at the Ruby cup, but am a bit at a loss. I really want to use menstrual cups because of comfort and sustainability. Any suggestions?
    By the way, I absolutely adore you guys! Thank you for your work!

  • Hey!
    Thank you so much to both of you for such great work in helping other women with their search for the perfect cup.
    I too have a low cervix. When measured in mm, it cannot go beyond 37 or 38mm. Length wise, I felt organicup mini falls wirhin my vagina length, at least according to the charts here.
    Can I consider Organicup mini for myself? I’m 25 yrs.
    Also, I checked on their site, but they’re showing different measurements there than those given here. The mini version there is 50mm!!
    Please help.

    • Hey there! I’ve been using the organicup mini for around a year. I’m 17 now. My cervix changes a lot during the period; it goes from average, to high and then to low. During the average and high days I have no problems, but in the last days when my cervix goes way too low, I have to stop using it and just keep pads for a few days. But on those days that it’s really low, I think it’s lower than what you measured, it must be like 2-3 cms. So I think it would be a good choice for you :). And just a little warning, it’s a really soft cup and it’s hard to learn how to get it inside especially if it’s the first cup you try. It doesn’t do the “pop” and it stays a bit folded. But overall I recommend it.

  • Hey, I’m a 13 year old (young I know) and I convinced my mom to buy me the Hello Cup (the one your quiz recommended). This is my first period with my cup, and I’ve noticed that my cervix has gotten much lower. As a result my cup is also very low, so much so that my cup’s stem almost pokes out, which doesn’t leave me feeling very secure. Maybe I just need to practice more to get the hang of it, but I was just wondering what thoughts you had. (Side note, my cup doesn’t seem to unfold completely if you have any advice.)
