The iCare menstrual cup is available in two sizes, Small & Large. There is a small difference between the two sizes, but it is important to use the right size to prevent leakage. To choose the right size use our sizing chart.
The stem, which measures 25 mm, can be shortened to the length you will find most suitable or can even be completely removed. Please make sure to do it properly not to damage the iCare menstrual cup by using a sharp knife or scissors.
Sizes are generally based on the kind of flow you have, age and childbearing history but many other factors have to be taken in account on how to choose an iCare Menstrual cup.
This is the most important factor when choosing the right cup: size “L” is best for a heavier flow and size “S” for a lighter flow, but also take in considerations the other factors.
This is a very important factor to know how to choose an iCare mesntrual cup. Women with a smaller vaginal canal should use size “S” and those with a larger vaginal canal should use size “L”, regardless of age or menstrual flow.
If you have a petite or small build, you should use size “S”, while if you have a larger build, you should use size “L”.
Childbirth very often affects the shape of the vagina and weakens the pelvic floor tone, size “L” should be used by all women who have given birth naturally.
The vaginal muscles, also known as the pelvic floor muscles, have an important role on how to choose an iCare Menstrual cup, because they hold the cup in place while wearing the menstrual cup. As we age these muscles lose elasticity, often through pregnancy or hormonal changes.
So If you have a pelvic floor disorder such as incontinence or have been diagnosed with a weak pelvic floor, you should use size “L”. On the other hand, if you have a strong pelvic floor tone thanks to practicing regular kegel exercises or other activities such as pilates, yoga or dance you should consider size “S”, regardless of your childbearing history or age.
If you are virgin you should use size “S”. If you are concerned about your hymen, please consult your physician before use.
