Save money (no more monthly pads/tampons), save time (fewer changes with our high capacity cup) & save the Earth with your reusable Best, Periodt. cup.
Healthier for your body, wallet & environment
Size 1 is for you if you answer 'yes' to any of the below:
- You're under 30 years old
- You have a shorter to regular cervix
- You've never had a vaginal birth
- You have light to medium flow periods
This is our smaller option menstrual cup, but it's still powerful and able to hold more than most brands' largest size (almost 6x the amount of blood collection of a regular pad)! All while being super comfortable - even while you're sleeping or exercising.

Give Back Program
There are many things going on in this world that we don't agree with. We at Best, Periodt. figured, that instead of simply voicing our opinions on the interwebs, we should do something that contributes to real, meaningful change.
For every cup purchased, one is donated. In addition to donating cups to people in need to assist with period poverty, we also give a portion of our cup sales to help end human trafficking. This is a horrendous global-scale issue happening right on everyone's shores and it must be stopped. We donate proceeds from every cup purchase annually to help put an end to this crime.
Here is a video of the students of Hope Academy in Sierra Leone receiving their Best Periodt cup donation.
Educational training about periods and how to properly use a menstrual cup was also provided.
Period poverty is a real issue everywhere. Simply ask a guidance counsellor in your area if they have students request access to pads/tampons. Many others miss school during the week of their period because their family cannot afford menstrual care. And it isn't just students. Many adults also miss days of work. And many who are homeless are also without this basic necessity.
Because of this, we want to do our part and provide menstrual cups to shelters with humans in need.
Our current partnerships:
⭐️ We bLEAD Bermuda to assist those in Bermuda in need of period care
⭐️ Hope Academy a school in Sierra Leone
⭐️ PATESI, a US based charity IRS 501 (c) (3) is helping menstrators in Kenya, USA and throughout Latin America
And to put the scale of our other cause we support (ending human trafficking) in perspective for you, we've included some stats and powerful quotes below:
Human trafficking is a heinous crime happening all around us. The victims—30% of which are children—are subject to forced labour, sexual exploitation and other forms of abuse. We must do more to bring criminals to justice, and help victims rebuild their lives.
Secretary-General of the United Nations
An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked every year; 2 million children, the majority of them girls, are sexually exploited in the multibillion-dollar commercial sex industry.
National Human Trafficking Hotline statistics show a 25 percent jump in human trafficking cases from 2017 to 2018. This includes sex and labor trafficking. Of the more than 23,500 runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in 2018, 1 in 7 were likely victims of child sex trafficking.
Each year, an estimated 14,500 to 17,500 foreign nationals are trafficked into the United States. The number of U.S. citizens trafficked within the country each year is even higher, with an estimated 200,000 American children at risk for trafficking into the sex industry.
U.S. Department of Justice
(2004. Report to Congress from Attorney General John Ashcroft on U.S. Government Efforts to Combat Trafficking in Persons in Fiscal Year 2003.Washington, D.C.: U.S. Department of Justice.)
Children Are Trafficked For Sex 4 Times More Than Adults. Estimates point to about 168 million children being forced into labor around the world. With more than 50% of those children doing hazardous work.
In 2018 The Trafficking Hotline saw a nearly 20 percent increase in the number of victims and survivors who contacted them directly about their own situations.
In 2019, Polaris worked on 11,500 situations of human trafficking reported to the Polaris-operated U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline. These situations involved 22,326 individual survivors; nearly 4,384 traffickers and 1,912 suspicious businesses. Human trafficking is notoriously underreported. Shocking as these numbers are, they are likely only a fraction of the actual problem.
We have vetted some amazing charities working in this area and allow our customers to assist us in deciding which will be the recipient of the donation each year. Those on our mailing list will be sent the list via email with the details and options to vote one month before the donation is provided annually.
