Learning how to measure your cervix is as glorious as it sounds. It’s the best. It’s fantastic. We promise.
Okay, we may be using alternative facts here, but it does play an important role in figuring out what menstrual cup might work the best for you or why the one you’ve tried didn’t. While it is just one piece of the puzzle (we recommend checking out our popular menstrual cup quiz for the rest) it does play a major role in comfort. Not to mention that among the benefits of switching to the cup, increased comfort really is one of the best parts of switching to a menstrual cup.
So How Do You Measure Your Cervix?
One basic idea is what is sometimes referred to as ‘the knuckle rule’. If you can insert your finger and feel your cervix with just the first knuckle to the opening of your vagina you have a low cervix. Second knuckle would be considered average. And finally, the third knuckle (or can’t reach?) would be considered high!
This is by no means a perfect way of measuring your cervix (since all hands are different) but it’s a pretty easy, basic method to help get an idea of where your cervix sits.
