Product Information

The Merula Cup is a really popular menstrual cup due to it's unusual shape which makes it suitable for so many people. It does not matter if you have weak or strong pelvic floor muscles the Merula cup stays where it belongs.  The Merula cup can be worn folded and does not have to open completely, even if you have really strong pelvic floor muscles you will not make the cup lose it's shape. The Merula cup is round, with a rigid edge and a thin, soft body.  The Merula cup is made out of 100% medical-grade silicone and produced in Germany. The stem on the cup is usual and different to other menstrual cups, it is an adaptable, three-rung stem that can be shortened to ensure an individual, optimally comfortable length. 

Contents:
1x Merula Cup in your chosen size Onesize/XL and colour.
1x small cotton pouch in coordinating colours to your cup.
1x Instruction Leaflet


The Merula cup comes in two sizes either standard onesize or XL.  So which one is right for you?

Merula Onesize
The Merula cup's unusual spherical shape means the Merula cup has a short height of only 39mm. This means the cup can easily be used if you have a low cervix however unusually it is also suitable if you have a high cervix due to the long ladder shaped stem.  This versatility is really useful if you find your cervix height changes throughout your period. Measuring the height of your cervix before using the cup for the first time is not necessary. Simply decide which length of the stem would be perfect for you.  You can adapt by cutting one of the two levels from the stem. The Merula cup has a very large capacity up to 38ml which is the equivalent of 2 large tampons.  The diameter is from 40-46mm. Merula Onesize adapts perfectly to your body and is ideal for light or heavy bleeding.

Merula XL
The Merula XL has a VERY large capcity of up to 50ml and comes with a diameter of 46mm and is perfect if you have very heavy bleeding.  The capacity is on average the equivalent of 2 standard menstrual cups or 2.5 large tampons. The Merula XL has a cup height of 50mm and is designed for use with medium to high cervix. It comes with two rungs on the ladder stem so you can adapt it to fit your perfect needs. If your cervix is exceptionally low or you feel your vagina is exceptionally tight then the Merula Cup XL may be too large for you, in this case we recommend you stick with the Merula Onesize Cup instead.

Amazing cup for people with a low cervix! Needs to be inserted differently - explanation of my personal preference for insertion below
Saturday, 8 January 2022  | 

After not having the best experience (leaking, discomfort/worsening of cramps and always feeling its presence) with menstrual cups in my later teens, I decided that menstrual cups were just not going to work for me and wrote them off.  However, fast forward to several years later/a couple months ago,  I was getting really tired of wearing my reusable cloth pads all the time and decided I wanted a change/some variety.  So, having noticed a few new menstrual cups come out over the years, I decided to see what types of cups are now available and, after doing a lot of Googling and falling down a very educational Youtube menstrual cup rabbit whole, I discovered that I have a low cervix and this is why so many of the more traditionally shaped (e.g. Lunette) menstrual cups (which happen to be most of the cups that are commonly advertised and readily available in the shops) don't work for me.

Anyway, now that I have used the Merula (regular/onesize) for two of my periods, I feel I can safely say that this cup has exceeded my expectations and has made me become a very passionate menstrual cup wearer!  Gone are the leaks, discomfort/worsening of cramps and I can't even feel it once it's in, yay!  Additionally, the material is nice and soft and supple and, because of the shape of the cup and the fact that there are no suction holes in the side of the cup, it holds a lot more blood than a standard cup does and, hence, I am able to wear it continuously through the day/night and only have to empty and rinse it out in the morning and evening .  This being said, there is a slight con to having no suction holes around the rim of the cup as I've found that this can make it more difficult (at least for my first few uses) to insert and get the suction needed for the cup to stay up and in.  So, bearing this in mind, I can highly suggest using a little bit of water-based lube and playing around with a few different insertion methods (when you're not on your period) to find what method works best for you.  For myself, I ended up discarding all of the folding methods, after I found it impossible to get the cup to unfold/pop open following insertion, and discovered that if I squat and hold the open cup up to my vaginal opening and gently push and twist the cup up, so that the rim of the cup ends up sitting just inside the entrance of my vaginal canal and the rest of the cup is still sitting out of me, this is how I am able to get the cup to suction and seal.  After this, I then continue to hold the sealed cup by its base and push and twist the rest of the cup up into my vaginal canal and position it under my cervix.  Some notes for this method - there can be a few seconds of discomfort when the rim of the cup is sitting just inside the entrance of the vaginal canal and pushing on the surrounding skin.  Also, since this method requires pushing and twisting the cup up from the beginning (rather than folding and placing the cup in the vaginal canal), I would suggest putting a little bit of water-based lube around the rim of the cup to help keep things smooth when pushing it up.

In any case, I hope this review is helpful to anyone who might be nervous (like I was) about trying the Merula cup or has struggled with inserting it!  As for my experience purchasing from The Period Lady - purchase communication was great and postage, very fast.  I highly recommend .

Love this cup. Takes getting used to inserting and the feeling when it pops open is weird but works so well! Lasts 12 hours, wear with period pants and good to go. Not changing at school is also blissful and no leaking through full tampons. Fully recommend.
