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.

  1. Helpful information. Lucky me I discovered your web site
    by chance, and I am stunned why this accident did not came about in advance!

    I bookmarked it.

  2. I know you already did improvements to the quiz and it is very helpful but I was wondering if you could make it a little more specific on the question that asks if you used a cup before and you werent happy with it, to have an option to say which cup so that it doesnt appear as one of the recommendations?

  3. Hi, I’m looking for some advise. I’ve never used a cup before. I’ve taken the quiz but my question is,
    on the quiz it asks about your flow. Well on day 1and2 my flow is very light but on day 3 am very heavy, i have to use a ultra tampon and change it about every 2 -3 hrs. Then the next few days i’m back to a medium to light flow again. I also have average cervix. The quiz recommends SAALT SOFT, SUSTAIN CUP, LENA SENSITIVE, ORGANICUP, and RUBY. Has anyone tried or use any of those cups?

  4. Has anyone tried and/or heard of the Athena cup? Can anyone tell me something about it or compare it to other cups listed here?

  5. I love this quiz. Thanks for doing such an amazing work. I had a small complain about it though. It seems if I put in the quiz that I have a heavy flow with tampons/pads and dont use cups the quiz recommends the bigger size saalt/lunette/lena etc. But if i say i have heavy flow with the cup and say pads/tampons dont apply to me it tells me to use a small lunette/salt/lena etc. I am not sure if this is on purpose. But I feel that it should at least recommend similar sizes if not the same brands in both cases since while I know flow is not always the main concern and fit matters more. If anything it should recommend bigger cups for experienced users since they are more likely to able to make it work. The reason I mention this is because while I myself got recommended the right thing when I put in the quiz I didnt think it would have if I had know my flow in terms of cups and was concerned about it getting full too soon.

  6. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this superb blog!

    I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking
    and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward
    to brand new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!

  7. Hi, I’m pretty new in this and it’s good that I found your site. I’m curious to know whether it’s okay to use the smaller cup even though I gave birth vaginally, because with bigger cup sometimes I feel it somewhat pokes my bladder.
    And just last night my cup leaked. What could be the cause of it? This is my second time of using the cup. The last time it was no leak. Was it because I cut half of the stem?
    Thank you for your answer.
