The Hello Cup comes in three sizes – XS (extra small), S/M (small/medium) and L (large or ‘lovely’.)
Our L is best for those over 35 who feel it’s a bit more roomy up there (possibly thanks to pushing out a small human or two). It’s worth noting that we find physically fit people are often best suited to the S/M regardless of age.

Sometimes finding the best size for you can be a bit of trial and error. If you’re uncertain about what size to choose we offer a discounted ‘pick ‘n’ mix’ option to help take the guess work out of things. This allows you to choose a Hello Cup box with any two sizes inside for €44.95. Many find they can wear two sizes anyway and opt for a smaller sized Hello Cup on light days and a larger one on heavy days.
The diameter of the L is 45mm and the overall length, including the toggle, is 64mm. It holds 28ml (to the holes.)

We recommend a shallow punchdown fold for Hello Cups
We say ‘shallow’ because the key is to make sure the punch doesn't go below the letters on the side of the cup. Once you've nailed the fold, insert your Hello Cup. Once it pops open, give it a gentle tug to help it form a seal and you’re good to go. If it’s in correctly and is the right size, you shouldn’t get any leakage. Like most things in life, you might need to practice a bit until you’ve got the hang of it.
You can leave menstrual cups in for up to 12 hours. As a guide, on heavier days you might want to remove it every three or four hours. On light days you can leave it for up to 12 hours.
To remove your Hello Cup, feel for the base of the cup. Give it a gentle squeeze – this helps to break the seal – and pull down slowly. Once it’s out, simply tip the contents down the loo, rinse (or wipe if there’s no tap handy) and reinsert. Easy!
Once your period is over, we recommend you sterilise your Hello Cup either by using a 1/4 of a sterilisation tablet in a glass of water. You can also give it a quick 3 minute boil on the stove (don’t let the bottom of the cup touch the bottom of the pan though).
