Benefits of Menstrual Cups
- Menstrual cups are cost-effective as they can be reused for several years, saving you money on disposable menstrual products.
- They are eco-friendly as they create less waste compared to disposable pads and tampons.
- Menstrual cups are more comfortable to wear than pads and tampons as they don’t cause dryness, irritation or odors.
- Cups can hold more menstrual fluid than tampons, so you can go longer without having to change it.
- Menstrual cups are safe to use as they are made of medical-grade silicone, or latex and don’t contain harmful chemicals like bleach or dioxins.
- Using a menstrual cup can also help you become more familiar with your body and menstrual cycle, which can lead to better menstrual health awareness.
How to Use Menstrual Cups
- Wash your hands thoroughly before handling the menstrual cup.
- Fold the cup in a way that suits you and gently insert it into your vagina.
- Allow the cup to fully unfold and create a seal.
- Wear the cup for up to 12 hours, then remove it by breaking the seal and pulling gently.
- Empty the contents into the toilet or sink, and rinse the cup with water.
- Sterilize the cup before and after each menstrual cycle by boiling it in water for 5-10 minutes.
