Your period is so much more than a monthly bleed; it is giving you valuable information about your health.
The color, consistency, pain, length & emotions that arise are all indicators of your hormonal balance.
Know your period - and identify the difference between common & normal.
Hello Cup Co-Founder, Robyn, recently wrote a feature for Woman Mag NZ about the stigma that still exists when it comes to 'period chat' and the need to break the cycle of period shame - one menstrual cup at a time.

Positioning my menstrual cup is just a case of fold, insert, pop in, et voila! Isn’t it?
Well, yes, and sometimes no. Read our blog to find out all about how to position your Hello Cup, how to measure your cervix, and how to find the best menstrual cup for you.
Vaginal cup, period cup, menstrual cup... Whatever you call it, The Hello Cup is a great choice.
It’s worth remembering that we don’t recommend buying your cup based on your flow alone. Instead, sizing is based on fitness and age.
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 it’s a bit more roomy up there.
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.
