Which Pixie Cup is right for me?

It’s hard enough to try to find the perfect pair of shoes to go with your outfit… and you’re supposed to decide which MENSTRUAL CUP fits your cervix without trying one on?

Girl, that’s crazy!!

We get it! Don’t worry, we are here to make sure you have all the information you need to figure out which Pixie Cup is just right for you!

There are a few things to consider when you’re choosing a Pixie Cup, so make sure you review all of the factors listed below:

Flow (go with it!):

  • If you have a lighter flow and use just a pad or tampons between light and regular, you will likely be just fine with a size Small in either our regular Pixie Cup, or the Small Pixie Cup Luxe.
  • If you are grabbing a Super tampon on your heavier days, you probably will be a better fit with our Large Pixie Cup or Large Pixie Cup Luxe.
  • If you’re going through multiple Super Plus or Ultra tampons per heavy day, you might even want to give our XL Pixie Cup a try!

Cervix Height:

  • Your cervix is average/very high. Are you able to use a larger tampon without pain “up there”? Can you touch your cervix with your finger? (Your cervix is round and about the texture of the end of your nose.) If you have a higher cervix, you should be able to use any of our Pixie Cup sizes with no problems.
  • Your cervix is low. Is your cervix easy to reach, especially during your period? Do you ever experience pain when inserting a tampon? If so, you might want to start with a smaller size Pixie Cup. We recommend the Small Pixie Cup Luxe which is a little more flexible. 

Other Factors:

  • If you have trouble inserting a tampon, or you are under the age of 18, you might want to start out with one of our smaller Pixie Cups.
  • If you have no trouble inserting larger sized tampons, with a little practice you should be able to easily choose between any of our Pixie Cup sizes.
  • If you have given birth to a child vaginally, your body will likely be able to fit any of our Pixie Cup sizes.

Don’t forget to consider all of the categories listed above before you make your choice! If you still have some questions, or if your Pixie Cup isn’t fitting quite right, feel free to contact us HERE and we would be happy to answer any questions you might have!

    What’s the difference between the luxe and standard cup?

    • Laura U. on August 26, 2019 at 9:12 am

      The Pixie Cup Luxe was made with a softer type of silicone and is a little smaller than the original Pixie Cup. It also has a different style stem, so that is completely dependent on preference! We find that for those with a lower or tilted cervix, those who haven’t used a menstrual cup before, or those who haven’t given birth, often prefer the Luxe because it is softer and easier to fold.
