Hello Menstrual Cup S/M
The Hello Cup is a complete game-changer when it comes to your period. As a rule of thumb we recommend the S/M for those under 35. Physically active/fit users often find the S/M is best for them regardless of age or whether they’ve had children.

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. Alternatively, you can also give it a quick 3 minute boil on the stove (don’t let the bottom touch the bottom of the pan though).

How you will save:
The average person changes their tampon every four hours. A box containing 32 tampons costs $4. Using one tampon every four hours equals six tampons per day. Multiply 6 tampons by the average cycle of 5 days and that’s 30 tampons per cycle. That means you need ~1 box per month which equates to $48 per year. In five years, you’ll be spending $240 on tampons alone. Whereas, you could simply spend $35 on one menstrual cup that will last you just as long.
