Discover why more and more women are laughing out-loud during tampon and disposable pad commercials.
Okay girls, I wish I could have all the money back I spent over the last 2 decades, buying commercial feminine hygiene products. They did nothing but make me uncomfortable and dry me out, and I still leaked. They also made me feel gross and they smelled bad. Ugh.
A few years ago, I learned about
a new (to me) product on a pregnancy forum. At that time I There were so many long
discussions about it popping up every day, that I couldn't help but notice the
conversation. And that is how I got sucked into the wonderful world of
Alghough reusable menstrual cups have been around for quite some time, many of us still don't even know that there is any alternative to using tradional feminine products, such as disposable pads and tampons.
A silicone menstrual cup is environmentally friendly, reusable menstrual protection. It is shaped like a bell, and it's made of flexible material - usually medical grade silicone or rubber. It is inserted deep into the vagina to collect the menstrual flow. It works by sealing the menstrual discharge and collecting it into the cup. The difference between a cup and a pad or a tampon is that the cup does not absorb the blood, but holds it until you remove it - so you just have the empty the cup every couple of hours.
As more and more people are becoming aware of their ecological footprint, many of us strive to change the way they live our lives. Reducing the amount of garbage we produce by the use of reusable menstrual products is one of these eco-friendly changes that are super-easy to make for all women. But, apart from being good for the environment, menstrual cups are also convenient and cost-effective. With proper care, one menstrual cup can last for 5-10 years.
There are many resources on the Internet with information how to choose, use and care for your menstrual cup. After buing a cup, read the manufacturer’s instructions of use. These instructions may vary slightly from one brand to another.
Using menstrual cups takes a little practice and getting used to. When inserting it in the vagina, stay relaxed and do not tense your muscles. The first time inserting and removing it is usually the hardest. Be patient and you will get the hang of it.
Menstrual cups is the best thing that has happened to feminine hygiene. Comfortable, clean, easy to use, great for any kind of physical activity such as riding a bike, running, swimming, and snowboarding–you’ll completely forget it’s “in there.” Give it a try, and you may never go back to disposable products again.
Give a Menstrual Cup a try!
I encourage all women to at least try a menstrual cup. Chances are you will love it, and will never go to back to using disposable products again. Don't be put off by the idea of inserting the cup and emptying it - it's really all very easy once you try it a couple of times.
It's a really small thing that we can all do to help the environment and reduce our footprint on this world.
