What To Know Before You Get Started

We’ve combined our extensive menstrual cup knowledge with our Menstrual Cup Comparison Chart to create the original and most accurate menstrual cup quiz (we know, we’ve polled!) to help point you to the best menstrual cup for your body, age, history, activity level, and more. Our goal is to help you find a cup that will work for your needs the first time!

We invite you to take this easy-to-use quiz, even if you’re a cup user, but especially if you aren’t!  We have included questions to address the most common complaints about period cups in the hopes that the answers will lead you to a better cup for you.

Before you take the quiz, please keep a few things in mind:

  1. I am not a doctor. This quiz was designed by advocates with decades of combined experience as cup users and people who have had to navigate menstruation for at least twice that. It was also developed with the consideration of countless hours spent talking with others, listening to their feedback, and learning from their experiences. This quiz was informed and designed by experience at its core. It is a sharing of peer experiences and is not medical advice.
  2. For the best, most accurate results, answer each question to the best of your ability and based on averages. For example, if you have one heavy day with the rest being light, I suggest selecting a medium or average flow rather than basing that answer on your heaviest or lightest day. Answering based on the more extreme portions of your period will likely result in reduced accuracy and a less-than-ideal cup. Please also remember that it’s normal to empty your period cup more often on heavier days.
  3. We can help! If you take the quiz and only receive a suggestion for a cup you use or have used and don’t love, join our Facebook community, and we can collectively help you troubleshoot! Our menstrual cup quiz works for most people, but bodies are complex! We have a lot of tricks up our sleeves — some we even use ourselves to make our own cups leakproof, and we would love to help you make your cup work.

What is the best menstrual cup for you?

I am often asked what the “best menstrual cup” is, and the inconvenient truth is that it is all about what works for your body and your lifestyle. I wish it were as simple as telling you my favorite cup or asking a friend what works for them, but that’s just not the case.

I may be biased, but I believe we have the best menstrual cup quiz. Our quiz was thoughtfully designed to make choosing a cup as easy as possible by giving you the confidence of knowing that the cup you’re choosing was selected based on your body, period, wants, and needs.

My best advice is to start by taking the quiz and answering each question to the best of your ability. Each answer is carefully weighted in order to calculate what cup will work best for your needs. Once completed, you will be presented with 3 to 6 cups that are similar and solely based on your answers. You can confidently choose any cup listed or fine-tune your decision by comparing your results on the menstrual cup chart or comparison tool.

If you have questions or need additional support and encouragement, join the Put A Cup In It Community on Facebook to get experiences and feedback from nearly 100k menstruators who have been right where you are.

  1. wonderful issues altogether, you just gained a emblem new reader.

    What could you suggest in regards to your put up that you made
    some days in the past? Any certain?

  2. Thank you for your website post. Thomas and I happen to be saving for
    our new book on this subject and your post has made all
    of us to save all of our money. Your thinking really responded all our problems.
    In fact, a lot more than what we had acknowledged in advance of the time we came upon your amazing blog.
    My partner and i no longer nurture doubts and also a troubled mind because you have attended to our own needs
    above. Thanks

  3. Took your quiz a while back and suggested the Lynnette.
    I just feel a lot of pressure and even pain on my cervix.
    Is it too long?
    Do I need the Merula or something like that instead?
    Diva cup is certainly not for me it also made me feel like I was in labor.

  4. What i don’t understood is actually how you are no longer actually a
    lot more well-appreciated than you might be right now. You’re so intelligent.
    You understand thus significantly relating to this subject, produced
    me in my opinion imagine it from a lot of varied angles.

    Its like women and men aren’t involved until it’s something to do
    with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs great. At all times handle it up!

  5. My wife and i were quite excited that Raymond managed to finish off
    his research out of the ideas he acquired from your web page.

    It is now and again perplexing to simply continually be freely giving guidelines which usually some other people could have been trying to sell.

    Therefore we fully grasp we now have the blog owner to be grateful to because of that.
    Those explanations you have made, the simple site navigation, the
    relationships you will help create – it’s most remarkable, and it is helping our son and the family recognize that
    this situation is interesting, which is exceedingly mandatory.
    Many thanks for everything!

  6. This quiz was absolutely the best and easiest way I have found to determine what menstrual cup to use! I had been a Diva Cup user for 8years (I loved it!). I have a very active lifestyle, with swimming and hiking and biking being at the center for the enjoyment of my leisure time. (All are difficult to enjoy while menstruating!) Once I was introduced to the Diva cup by a friend, my life changed!
    Then, two children later, I tried the Diva Cup 2…but, I was having issues finding it comfortable like I had pre- baby. It would slip down, and I noticed it almost all the time when I wore it. I put up with it because of the freedom it offered my life. After my second baby, it caused bladder issues (feeling like I had to go all the time), and also added uncomfortable pressure and aggravated my cramps. I feared my cup days were over. I did a simple google search and found your site! I took the quiz and now use the Lena Sensitive- and IT HAS MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE! It took a couple of tries the first day to figure out how to insert it most comfortably ( simply by following the suggestions in the Lena’s Instructions) and now I use a different insertion method than I did with the Diva Cup- but I couldn’t be more pleased with this new cup. I am forever grateful to have my free and comfortable periods back! I am so thrilled I can be comfortable wearing a cup again!
    Trying to parse through all the different sites and figure out all the benefits to each cup was exhausting…and I never felt confident in being able to pick one…
    I share this site with every woman I know who is interested in trying, or finding their new perfect fit.
    An added benefit of using a menstrual cup, is no vulva irritation from blood exposure. It isn’t often talked about, but blood on the skin can be irritating, and it is also why I often use my cup at night during my heavy flow days instead of my She Thinx period pantys (or a pad).
    Thank you so much for doing the leg work and stream-linning this process!

  7. I have used the FemmyCycle low cervix cup for years and overall like it, except that it presses on my bladder making it difficult to pee. I generally remove it but this is not always convenient. I recently bought the SuperJennie (I mean…it’s named after me) because it appeared to be slimmer thus seems less likely to press on my bladder. Even trimming the stem, it pokes out and is probably not going to work. In your chart, the FemmyCycle Low Cervix is listed as having 1.69″ length and 1.42″ diameter and the SuperJennie Small is listed as having a 1.87″ length and 1.69″ diameter, but holding the two up to one another, the SuperJennie is slimmer than the FemmyCycle Low Cervix, if measuring beyond the opening. I’d love to know which cup to try next but can’t tell if there is a slimmer cup than the FemmyCycle that is also about the same length. I am 42 and have a relatively heavy period.

  8. in the quiz i got Lunette, Juju, or Lena Cup, i was wondering if i was able to use a saalt cup based on these results. i ask due to me being able to get a saalt cup easier.
