A or B, which size OrganiCup should I choose?
That’s a question, we get quite a lot and it is completely understandable as the Internet is flooded with menstrual cup comparison charts, guidelines and size guides.
The different menstrual cup brands even take different factors into consideration when guiding their customers in which size to opt for.
We’re all built differently – luckily – and that’s why we offer two sizes OrganiCup.
We have chosen to distinguish between the two in the following way:
Some find this overly generalized; some even find it offensive.
That’s completely understandable, but as the vagina is 100% unique to the individual, it will never be a ‘one size fits all’ product.
You might not notice a difference after having given birth vaginally, but things have changed and your vagina will probably not return completely to its pre-birth shape and that is completely fine!
Therefore, we have chosen pre- and post vaginal birth as the primary factor when guiding our customers.
We wish to keep it easy for our customers to choose and our research shows it is a physiological factor one needs to consider and that vaginal birth is actually the most decisive factor when you’re choosing cup size.
Factors to consider when choosing the right cup size
With that said, it doesn’t mean that one who has given birth vaginally can’t use a Size A and that a young user, who hasn’t given birth vaginally, with a heavier flow can’t use a Size B. We do offer a size guarantee, if the size against expectation should be wrong.
In fact, most people can use either size OrganiCup and our guideline is not bullet proof so there are a couple of other factors, you might want to consider when you’re choosing the menstrual cup size for you.
- Regular or heavy flow
The OrganiCup can be used for up to 12 hours at the time – also during night – depending on your flow.
We recommend that you empty your menstrual cup more frequently in the beginning while you’re getting to know the cup and your flow.
If you have a light or regular flow, we recommend the Size A.
However, if you have a heavier flow you might want to consider going with the Size B, which has a bigger capacity.
Some OrganiCup users like to have both cup sizes, as their flow is heavier in the beginning of their menstrual cycle and therefore prefer the Size B and then switch to the Size A in the end of their cycle where their flow is lighter.
- First time cup users
We recommend the Size A for teens and young cup users. You can actually start using a menstrual cup as soon as you get your period.
Although, there is no age limit; it does however require that you are comfortable with your body and period.
For the mums, we generally recommend going with a Size B as per the above, however, have you delivered your child/children by C-section, we recommend going with an OrganiCup Size A.
