I am so glad I’m writing posts for my lifestyle section. It’s been more than three years, but I seldom shared anything personal in here except for the product reviews and fashion looks. I cannot wait to write more such random topics in here this year. It’s been exactly one year and seven months since I got married to the love of my life. I’m mentioning this because after marriage is when I started using menstrual cups.
My mom never let me try menstrual cups before because she said it could cause problems in the long run which was a complete bullsh*t, to be honest. She was just afraid of what my spouse would think. I desperately wanted to switch from normal pads because I would get rashes and chafing by the end of the first day of my periods which was painful and made menstruation even more inconvenient than it already was. I didn’t want to use tampons because it can cause TSS but this is my personal opinion feel free to consult with a Gynecologist before making this switch to see if this is suitable for you.
What Is A Menstrual Cup?
A menstrual cup is a reusable feminine hygiene product. It is a flexible, small funnel-shaped cup made of silicone that one can insert into their vagina to catch and collect period blood. It can hold more blood than any pad or tampon. Depending on the flow, one can wear it for up to 12 hours. One menstrual cup can be used for ten years making it the best eco-friendly alternative to pads or tampons. These come in various sizes depending on your age, flow, whether you’re married or given birth vaginally.
