HERE'S ANOTHER WAY TO KNOW YOUR SIZE

MEASURE YOUR CERVIX

The cervix comes up a lot in conversation when talking about period cups, tampons and women's health more broadly. But where is the cervix, how deep is it, and what is a cervix? Before you can figure out whether yours is high or low, let's go back to the basics. The following content is information and not meant as medical advice. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your health, please speak with your physician.

Where Is the Cervix?

Located between the uterus and the vagina, it’s located near the uterus and the bladder. Typically, it’s 2 cm in length, which is around 1.2 inches.

Keep in mind that its position changes throughout your menstrual cycle. Every woman’s body is different, so it’s up to you to choose what’s comfortable. It may be easier to answer, where is the cervix, when you are on your period as it may be lower down.

How to measure the height of your cervix

Here’s a step-by-step feel-guide to working how the height of your cervix and therefore the right size menstrual cup for you:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly including underneath your fingernails. If you have any nail extensions, consider doing this at a time when you don’t have any as you may cause damage to the cervix wall.
  2. Squat or put one leg on the toilet. You can also do this in the shower as if you were about to apply a tampon (for those not using a menstrual cup yet)
  3. Insert your longest finger into your vagina, or whichever one feels most comfortable, and notice how far in it goes. You will feel a soft roof past which you can not push. If you are not sure if it is the cervix “roof” or the vaginal wall, you can try tofeel a dip or opening.
  4. Use how far your knuckles go in to work out your cervix height.

Even though our bodies are all so different, each of us has the opportunity to live in period freedom. Give yourself a chance and invest in a Delilah Cup. You won’t regret it for a minute.
