I am sure that you will agree with me when I say that menstruation is not easy. A woman’s life starts crawling for 3-5 days and the uncomforting feeling takes all over you. Checking out for stains. Changing pads every 6 hours. Why can’t periods be easy? Why do vagina-havers go through so much? Already we face the hormonal surge and mood swings. Then the trouble of sanitary pads can back off! Recently I got to know about menstrual cups. Yes! Cups to carry the blood and that too without the hustle of changing again and again.
A menstrual cup is made from medical-grade silicone or rubber. It seals around the interior of the vagina. Yes, you need to fix the cup inside. It collects menstrual fluid instead of absorbing them as tampons or pads do. It’s recommended that you sterilize the cup in boiling water for up to 10 minutes before using it for the first time.
There are many women who look entirely devoted to these cups and they can’t all be wrong, right?
No running to your local department store to buy pads and tampons. With menstrual cups, just buy one or two and you have all you need to last you for up to 6 years to 10 years.
You reuse them! Just wash away the cups and use again. Sit wherever you want, however you want. Wear those white underpants and that pretty white dress.
You must be thinking that how does the entire cup go inside your vagina! Well, you fold them to insert. Do it as per your comfort. Moreover, you can choose from different period cup sizes and shapes to find one that fits you perfectly. And take it out after the use.
Inserting a menstrual cup is confusing for first-time users. Trust me, I thought how on earth will this cup will go inside? This is normal, take a deep breath and just do it.
You should make the switch from pads and tampons to menstrual cups as you will save a LOT of money, reduce plastic pollution, and it is a healthier choice for your body! So when are you trying?
