We recommend a "large" for those who have given birth vaginally or been diagnosed with a condition called Menorrhagia. The large cup's height is 6.9 cm and 4.7 cm in diameter. The cup holds approximately 36ml. of flow.
We recommend a "small" for those who have a normal to heavy flow but have not given birth vaginally. If you have given birth vaginally, we recommend you size up to the large. The cup's height is 6.3 cm and 4.3 cm in diameter. The cup holds approximately 28ml. of flow.
We recommend a "mini" for teens and petite anatomy. If you suspect you have more than light to normal flow, we recommend you size up to the small. The cup's height is 5.7 cm and 3.8 cm in diameter. The cup holds approximately 18ml. of flow.
Switching to a menstrual cup is a big step. That's why we've created the June cup quiz here.

Straight to the point: This bundle is super convenient and 100% worth getting!! Breaking this review down into parts based on the items you get in this bundle - 1. The cup: This was my first time using a cup; previously I tried Nixit's disc but found it was too large/difficult for me to keep inserted. The first three times I tried to insert or take out the June cup, I found it very difficult to do so. The first time I didn't know it wasn't sealed properly, the second time it hurt to take it out (freaked me out!), and the third time I couldn't even insert it. But, after that I was able to use it a couple times before the end of my period. (the trick is to sit on the toilet and insert *horizontally* with a down fold and tug on the stem a bit., then when taking out, pinch just above the circles near the stem) Personally, I didn't need to trim the stem at all. 2. The cup wash: A little goes a long way! Gives peace of mind that the cup *is* sanitized and ready to use within the cycle itself as opposed to worrying your soap may damage it (the instructions for the cup tell you not to use a specific kind of sanitizer/cleaner, so it's nice using one that is specifically designed for the cup). it also didn't give me any kind of reaction. 3. Sanitizer cup: Makes life so much easier!!! Pop it out, place your cup, pour boiling water, put the top on, let it sit (or swish occasionally) for about 10 minutes, and it's good to go! No more using cooking pots! 4. Cup wipes: I haven't tried them yet, but I assume it'll be similar to the cup wash in that you're using a product designed for the cup, so there won't be a need to worry about the cup breaking down.
