Yes, the first time you see our reusable menstrual cups you could be forgiven for thinking “yikes, that looks big, how on earth do I get that up my vjayjay?” Once you've got it in correctly, you won’t feel it at all. Boom.
Like menstrual cups, menstrual discs collect your period blood. Unlike menstrual cups, menstrual discs are held in place by being tucked behind the pubic bone rather than by suction - meaning they are a great option if you have an IUD.
Check out our comparison video, here.
Capacity - The Hello Disc™ will hold up to 50 ml (our L cups hold 29.5 ml). That’s equal to around 5 regular tampons or pads.
Material - Hello Cups are made from medical-grade TPE, Hello Disc™s are made from medical-grade silicone.
Position - Menstrual cups sit lower in the vaginal canal. The Hello Disc™ tucks behind the pubic bone.
Suction - Hello Cups suction when in position. The Hello Disc™ does not use suction - instead, it sits in place. (This makes the Hello Disc™ a great choice if you have an IUD!)
Sizes/Cervix heights - Hello Cups come in 3 cervix heights and 3 different sizes. The Hello Disc™ is great for all cervix heights (just adjust the tab as you need to) and comes in a handy ‘one size fits most’.
Yes, you can enjoy no-mess period sex with your Hello Disc™ in place! As your Hello Disc™ menstrual disc sits high and behind the pubic bone, it doesn’t get in the way of penetration. You shouldn’t be able to feel a thing with your Hello Disc™ in during play. No more laying down towels or period sex laundry!
**The Hello Disc™ is NOT intended to be used as contraception and will not prevent pregnancy. If you wear your Hello Disc™ during sexual intercourse and condoms are your sole method of birth control, remove your Hello Disc™ - the disc has not been tested against condom use and friction may create a micro-tear in the condom.**
The Hello Disc™ menstrual disc is a handy ‘one size fits most’. The 68mm rim of the Hello Disc™ is designed to fit most users. It offers more capacity than regular tampons, sanitary pads, or menstrual cups (the Hello Disc™ holds up to 50ml).
Why one size?
The vaginal fornix (where the Hello Disc™ sits) is frequently the same size from one person to another which is why our menstrual disc is a handy ‘one size fits most’.
Also, because the Hello Disc™ sits higher (than a menstrual cup) and tucks behind the pubic bone, it’s much easier to have a ‘one size’ option with menstrual discs.
