It’s important to know the position of your cervix as this can affect the way you should insert your Hello Cup and can also finding the right cup for you. Our standard Hello Cups are made for people with an ‘average’ cervix height - but we often find people with a high cervix are able to use them too.
If you have a low cervix - you might want to opt for our specially designed Low Cervix Hello Cup as the toggle may protrude with a standard Hello Cup.
To determine the height of your cervix, we’ve put together a wee guide below. Simply follow the steps and use our table to determine your cervix height. Make sure you do this when you have your period, for accuracy. Also - we often find this task is easiest in the shower!
Step 1: Wash your hands
Step 2: While on your period, insert a finger into the vagina and feel for the cervix - it should feel like the tip of your nose (a round, soft, knobbly thing).
Step 3: Note how far your finger is inside, and retract your finger. Either use a thumb, mark with a pen, or simply remember the point at which your cervix was felt. Measure this length against a ruler. (You’ll obviously need to leave the shower for this bit!)
Step 4: Align how your measurements with our guide below to determine your cervix height.

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.
