Which is the best menstrual cup?

If you’ve ever googled “which menstrual cup is the best?” you know how overwhelming the results can be! There are cups of every shape, size, color, and style, and they all claim to be the best menstrual cup on the market! How can you tell which one is the best menstrual cup to buy?

The truth is, menstrual cups are not designed to be one-size-fits-all. Each cup is fashioned to fit a specific way and it really depends on what your goals are for your cup. Are you looking for a cup for a heavy flow, or are you wondering which one is the best for a first-time user? Maybe you have a different goal entirely! Today we’re going to point you toward the best Pixie Cups for each specific goal, so you can find the perfect period cup for your needs.

If you’re wondering which cup size you should get, learn more about our cup sizes here.

Best menstrual cup for beginners

If you’re new to menstrual cups, you should start out with a cup that is gentle and easy to use! The Pixie Cup Slim is a soft, pliable cup that is easy to fold, insert, and remove. We recommend that you start with the small unless you have an extra heavy flow.

Best menstrual cup for heavy flow

Speaking of the heavy flow… if you are soaking through several large tampons on your heavy days or have lots of blood clots, you’ll be looking for a cup that can hold as much fluid as possible. Our largest cup is our Pixie Cup XL, which is created out of a firmer silicone so it holds its shape!

Best menstrual cup for low cervix

If you have a low cervix, we recommend that you start out with our Pixie Cup Slim in size small. It’s short and has a small, trimmable stem that will be non-obtrusive. Learn how to measure and find out if you have a low or high cervix.

Best menstrual cup for a high cervix

Do you have a high cervix? If so, you’ll need a cup that is easy to grab if it rises up in the vaginal canal. Our regular Pixie Cup has a brand-new, easy-to-grab stem and holds its shape well. These features make it an excellent choice for those with a high cervix.

Best menstrual cup for tilted uterus

We have so many people asking which period cup is the best for a tilted uterus! If you have a tilted uterus, also known as a tilted cervix or retroverted uterus, you need a cup that can seal really well and be flexible enough to move with your body. The Pixie Cup Slim, in either small or large depending on your flow amount, is a great choice.

Best menstrual cup for athletes

If you’re an athlete, you need a cup that can handle a lot of movement without breaking the seal. The soft silicone of the Pixie Cup Slim moves with your body without displacing the cup and allowing any menstrual fluid to escape. It’s the perfect menstrual cup for the active girl on the market!

Best menstrual cup for tweens/teens

Teens and tweens are just starting out on their period journey, so it’s super important to pick a cup that will be gentle and easy to use. Our small Pixie Cup Slim is soft and easy to fold into a small point for insertion. Plus, it removes the possibility of embarrassing moments. If you’ve ever dropped a tampon in the school hallway or sat sadly on a beach chair wearing a pad instead of diving into the pool on summer days, you know what we’re talking about.

Best menstrual cup for swimming

Speaking of the pool… the Pixie Cup Slim is also a great option for those who love to swim! Because swimming involves a lot of movement, choose a cup that can move with your body, leak-free! The Pixie Cup Slim is flexible and an ideal choice for swimmers.

The best menstrual cup on a budget

We get it… period cups are expensive! That’s why we priced our Pixie Cup to be affordable. In fact, it’s about the same price as a couple boxes of tampons, but your Pixie Cup will last up to ten years! Because they’re reusable, menstrual cups are very cost effective. Here at Pixie Cup, we want every woman to be able to afford a menstrual cup, which is also why we have a Buy One Give One program. With every Pixie Cup purchased, we give one cup away to a woman in need!

Keep in mind… these period cup suggestions are just our personal recommendations. You may just have to dive in and give it a try. It’s difficult to find a perfect match on the first time, but don’t worry! We offer a 100% happiness guarantee for all of our Pixie Cups! If your cup doesn’t fit just right, we will help you find one that does or give you your money back, even if that means using a different brand. It’s a no-brainer purchase for you! We can offer that kind of guarantee because we’re confident in our products. We think you’re going to love your Pixie Cup and never go back to tampons again.

So… sorry cotton products! You’re on your own. ✌️
