Menstrual Cups & Why You Can Give a Try?

Although menstrual cups are quite common across the globe, some women are still bothered with questions such as “Are they good for me?”, “Do they cause infections?”, “Will I lose my virginity if I wear a cup?” among other practical usage questions like “Does it get messy?”. For those of you who haven’t been exposed to it yet, a menstrual cup is a substitute period care option for sanitary pads and tampons. It is a more sustainable and healthier option. While pads and tampons absorb blood, in the case of a menstrual cup, it collects it instead of soaking menstrual blood when inserted into the vagina. Experts say that it’s safe enough to use, and you can easily indulge in any daily activities without worrying if your tampon is out of place or your pad is leaking. The good news is that depending on the level of blood flow and the age of the women, menstrual cups are usually available in three different sizes-small, medium, and large, and you can choose a size to fit your needs.

What are the advantages of using menstrual cups?

Economical – A cup can last anywhere between 6 months to 10 years based on how you maintain it. This is a significant advantage from an economic perspective because you can save the repetitive cost of pads and tampons.

More flexibility - You can hike, ride, swim, and indulge in heavy sports wearing a menstrual cup. These activities may be uncomfortable and impossible while wearing pads. Also, keeping your cups longer than a tampon makes them less prone to leakage, giving you more flexibility and easing your movement.

Longer duration – Your cups can be used as long as 12 hours before you need to clean them. This is helpful, especially if you’re outdoor. Plus, sleeping with menstrual cups is easy, as they last longer without bothering you, like tampons and pads.

Sustainable – Menstrual cups are a more sustainable solution for periods, as they’re made with materials that contribute to the least environmental harm.

Fewer leakages - If a menstrual cup is placed correctly, there are very few chances of leakage compared to pads and tampons.

No rashes – Sanitary pads can cause rashes, while tampons may make your vagina itchy due to the added scent and fibres that are left behind. You are protected from having an itchy period with rashes or discomfort with menstrual cups.

So, why don’t you give it a try?
