It’s totally normal for your menstrual cup or menstrual disc to stain. The degree of staining does vary between individuals and can happen due to a combination of factors including how long you leave your menstrual cup or menstrual disc in, as well as things like the iron content in your menstrual blood.
It turns out the stories you hear about chocolate helping reduce menstrual cramps isn’t just wishful thinking! While traditional pain medications can help alleviate period cramps - a few bits of chocolate can also work wonders according to some, especially if it’s dark chocolate.
Now we have the Hello Disc™some of you are asking whether you should choose aHello Cup™or aHello Disc™. Honestly, they are both great but the question totally triggers my indecisiveness so I thought it would be helpful to give you a quick run-down about the key features and differences - and then you can decide!
From the day we launched Hello we set out to develop sustainable period products WE would want to use. We’re not interested in doing something that’s already out there. We were set to do periods better and constantly innovate. However, there was a little voice in our heads, questioning our sanity and whether maybe we were the only ones thinking it’s a good idea.In short-it’s terrifying developing a new product! Recently our small team has been under the pump like never before.
Our Hello Disc™ comes in an easy ‘one size fits most’. For your Hello Cup™ Size Guide, please see below.
It’s worth remembering that we don’t recommend buying your cup based on your flow alone. Instead, our sizing is based on fitness and age.
STEP 1. Use our cervix measurement guide to find out where your cervix sits. We have Hello Cups available for all cervix heights: Low, Average and High.

HELLO CUP SIZE BREAKDOWN
Our XS is our smallest, softest cup. It’s the perfect choice for teenagers, petite users or those who prefer a ‘mini’ tampon.
Our S/M is our ‘one size fits most’ menstrual cup. We recommend it for users under 35–regardless of whether they have had children or not.
Our L (L for ‘Lovely’) is best for those over 35 who feel their pelvic floor is not what it used to be. It’s worth noting that we find physically fit people are often best suited to the S/M regardless of age.
If you’re uncertain, Hello Double Boxes are a great option to help you find which size works best for you. Many people find they can wear two sizes.
