YONI Period Cup | Duo Pack
I started using my cup last night and first day at work today. Omg why didn’t I make the change sooner! It’s so comfortable and I’m not worried about leaks at work! Did a workout this morning too and wasn’t worried about it at all. Absolute game changer!
The silicone is really soft and flexible and it is super easy to fold and insert. I’ve been using my yoni cup for three months now, and each time I pretty much forget I’m on my period entirely. It’s super comfortable and I feel like I’m really helping reduce waste, I can’t believe how many tampons/pads I have gone through in my life, and now I’m literally never going back.
Today my period surprised me. Being in isolation there was panic in my mind, I’d have to go to shop to get tampons. Then I remembered. I didn’t need to leave the house! My yoni cup was here, ready for me! Thank you yoni, you’re bloody AMAZING!
But, what size am I?
Here are some general things you can keep in mind when trying to decide what size to choose.
You might want to consider how heavy your flow is.
When you do this keep in mind that tampon and pads with 'normal' capacity holds approximately 5ml of fluid before they max out.
And the average amount of blood lost during a period is 35ml.
Your cervix height and position.
Before you purchase your first cup, make sure you check the position and height of your cervix.
Firstly, wash hands thoroughly and find a comfortable position. Secondly, gently insert a finger into your vagina. For reference, you are trying to find something that feels like the tip of your nose. Your cervix is firmer than your vaginal walls so you will know it when you find it.
Once you've found your cervix use the knuckle rule to decide height. If you can reach your cervix by the first knuckle you have a low cervix. If you reach your cervix by the second knuckle you have a medium cervix if you reach your cervix by the third knuckle (or can't reach it at all) you have a high cervix.
Your age, family and physical activity.
This all has an impact on how strong your your pelvic floor muscles are.
Generally, once you've turned 35 or once you've had a baby, your pelvic floor muscles become more relaxed.
If you are a teen, or very physically active you are likely to have stronger pelvic floor muscles.
