When we say you’ll never want to manage your period with another product ever again, we mean it.
The Ruby Cup is the ultimate period game-changer. Not just for you, but also for the other person who will receive a gifted cup thanks to your purchase.
There are two factors to consider when you’re working out which size Ruby Cup will work for you:
- cervix position
- menstrual flow
Everybody’s body is unique. So, when it comes to questions around menstrual cup sizing, we need to start the conversation with you – your body and your periods.
This way, we can help you find out which size of menstrual cup is best designed to meet your needs and which size will best help you manage your menstrual flow.
In this article, we’ll explain how to choose the right menstrual cup size for you. And we’ve also made a video, which is ideal for beginners, where you can see what a Ruby Cup menstrual cup looks like – and hear how to choose the right size for you and your period:
How Big Is a Menstrual Cup?
If you haven’t seen a menstrual cup before, at Ruby Cup we have two menstrual cup sizes – small and medium. And they’re made to fit every body.
Both cup sizes are made from soft, medical grade silicone and are designed to be easy to use and comfortable to wear.

What Size Menstrual Cup Should I Get?
When it comes to working out which of our soft cup sizes will work for you, we start by helping you find out how your body is actually shaped, both inside and out.
That’s because there are two factors to consider when you’re working out which size Ruby Cup will work for you.
1-How Heavy Is Your Menstrual Flow?
The first thing to consider is how much blood you lose when you have your period. We call this your menstrual flow and it can be light or it can be heavy.
If you have a light menstrual flow, you may be using small or regular tampons and slim pantyliners or pads. You’re likely to be changing your period product a few times during the day.
If you have a heavy menstrual flow, you’re likely to be using super or super plus size tampons and maxi pads. You’re also likely to be changing your period product frequently during the day and also at night.
2. Do You Have a Low Cervix – or a High Cervix?
How to find your cervix
To find your cervix, you’ll need to slide your longest finger into your vagina.
You can do this while you’re lying down, or with one leg up on the side of the bath or the toilet lid. You can also do this whether or not you have your period.
We recommend that you wash your hands well first and try to relax. Then carefully slide your longest finger into your vagina.
What does a cervix feel like?
You’ll find your cervix sitting at the top of your vagina. It’s likely to be at the top of your front vaginal wall – closer to your belly button than to your spine.
To the touch, it will feel like a smooth round, raised circle with a dimple in the middle – a bit like the tip of your nose.
Do you have a high cervix?
If your longest finger goes almost all the way into your vagina before it reaches your cervix you have a high cervix.
Do you have a low cervix?
If your longest finger finds your cervix around the middle knuckle mark, then you have a low cervix.
