The Hello Cup is a complete game changer when it comes to your period.

You may have heard the term ‘menstrual cup’.

That’s what the Hello Cup is. One of those. Essentially you put it up your vjayjay instead of a tampon. The best bit is, they’re even better than tampons – well, we think so, anyway.

Not only will your Hello Cup last for years and save you heaps of moolah, it’s also good for the environment, holds more than tampons and is unbelievably comfortable (as in you can’t even feel it).

The Hello Cup is proudly made and designed in New Zealand using top notch medical grade TPE (a type of plastic) that we import from Germany.

We feel strongly that when it comes to your vjayjay, you only want to put trustworthy stuff up there (sound advice from our grandmothers).

Yes, there are other cups out there, but not all cups are created equal. The Hello Cup is in a league of its own.

  • made in New Zealand
  • easier
  • cheaper
  • reuseable for years
  • planet friendly
  • holds more way more than tampons
  • comfortable

The Hello Cup comes in two sizes:

  • S/M
  • M/L

We recommend the S/M for young women or who are nervous about trying a cup. Sometimes very fit women find the smaller size is the better option for them. The M/L is our most popular size. If you have given birth, are over 25 years old, or have a medium to heavy flow – then this is probably the one for you. Sometimes it’s a case of trial and error. For example, if your S/M Hello Cup is opening but you get leakage, you might need to go up a size. On the other hand if you find your M/L won’t open – you might need to go down a size. There is an option to purchase a Hello Cup box with both sizes in it for $69. This helps take some of the guess work out of it and many women find they can wear both sizes so opt for the smaller sized Hello Cup on light days and the larger one on heavy days.

The diameter of the S/M is 41mm and the overall length, including the toggle, is 59mm. It holds 21mls (to the holes).

The diameter of the M/L is 45mm and the overall length, including the toggle, is 64mm.  It holds 28ml (to the holes).

Yes, the first time you see them you could be forgiven for thinking “yikes, that looks big, how on earth do I get that up my vjayjay?” But as we all know, looks can be deceiving. The Hello Cup is made from soft, medical grade plastic, to use it you simply fold it and pop it in.

The folding technique we recommend is the punch down fold.


Once inserted, your Hello Cup will pop open and form a seal. If in correctly 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 it in for hours depending on your flow. 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. The special rim of the Hello Cup helps to stop any splashes as you’re removing it. Once it’s out, simply tip the contents down the loo, rinse (or wipe if there’s no tap handy) & reinsert. Easy!

Once your period is over, we recommend you sterilise your Hello Cup either by using sterilisation tablets or giving it a quick boil on the stove (don’t let the bottom touch the bottom of the pan though).
