Low Cervix Menstrual Cups
Cervix height changes throughout your cycle and many find that it’s at it’s lowest position during menstruation. Menstruators with a low cervix can find the reusable menstrual cup serach frustrating. While many brands offer two sizes in diameter, pre-baby under 30 and post-baby or over 30, there are many different cup lengths.
Finding the right length is important because you don’t want the cup to be so short that you can’t get it out and you also don’t want one so long that it sticks out of your vaginal canal. If you have a low cervix, see my guide for measuring cervix height, you are probably searching for a short cup that fits inside and holds the necessary volume for your flow.
Here are some Menstrual cups specifically made Low Cervix Menstrual Cups to consider:
While many brands claim that their smaller size menstrual cups are ideal for low cervix, when you move to the smaller cup, you also moving to a smaller diameter. These cups are not truly designed for low cervix.
There are cups on the market that have specifically been designed for low cervix users. You can choose size, and the length of the cup stays the same!
Here are a few available now. Post contains affiliate links.

2. FemmyCycle Low Cervix Menstrual Cups
FemmyCycle is well known for their clear round menstrual cups with the no-spill feature. Their cups are offered in both their standard model and a low cervix version.
However, the company reports that the low cervix version is ideal for users who can insert their finger to the second knuckle, at period time, but they do not recommend it for someone with what they refer to as a very low cervix or lower than 2 knuckles or less than 2 inches.
The FemmyCycle Low Cervix measures 2″ long or 50.8mm, compared to the regular model with is 2.4″ and reports that their “teen” is 10% smaller. While this is generally a shorter cup, it’s not quite as low as the MeLuna shorty cups seen above.

Using a standard cup that’s not designed for low cervix but it’s working for you? I’ve spoken to many menstruators who use a few tricks, including turning the cup inside out, but some manufacturers don’t recommend using the cup this way.
