The Ruby Cup Menstrual Cup is a plastic cup designed to be inserted into the body. Lasting up to 10 hours a day, the cup can be washed and re-used every month, for up to ten years!
When a Menstrual Cup is purchased in our online store, Ruby Cup will donate another one to a school girl in Africa. A Ruby Cup helps her to stay in school and relieves her from the economic burden of buying tampons and pads that she can’t afford or simply do not have access to. Paired with education, it empowers her, gives her self-confidence and opportunities.
The cup is more environmentally friendly, and saves you a lot of money compared to tampons and pads.
To clean your cup, you can either wash it yourself or buy a special sterilizer from Ruby Cup, also available on the Lust Store! Click here: "Ruby Cup Sterilizer" and add it to your basket.
How to chose your size? Are you a small or a medium?
Ruby Cup is available in two sizes, small and medium. We recommend Ruby Cup Small for girls and women with a light to medium flow and Ruby Cup Medium for women with a medium to heavy flow. These are the Ruby Cup measurements.
For light to medium flow
to the Rim
to the holes
|46 mm||19 mm||65 mm||40 mm||24 ml||19 ml|
For medium to heavy flow
|51 mm||17 mm||68 mm||45 mm||34 ml||24 ml|
If you are in doubt, remember that both cups can work for you. If you have a heavy flow and use a Ruby Cup Small, you would only need to empty it more frequently than Ruby Cup Medium. And if you have a light flow, it is ok to use the medium cup, it will only hold more than the Ruby Cup Small and not be full when emptied.
Also interesting: Some women with a low cervix prefer Ruby Cup Small or cut the stem of the Ruby Cup Medium.
