Is sanitary pad your period time BFF? It’s the time to ditch those cotton linings and switch to something more convenient and of course absorbent! A menstrual cup is the new period care revolution to sort your daily comforts essentials and manage your tough time like a pro!
A menstrual cup is a type of reusable feminine hygiene product, it’s a small, flexible funnel-shaped cup made of rubber or silicone that you insert into your vagina to make an airtight seal and collect the blood, easily available on any menstrual tracker app. Though you may have built a comfort zone with pads and tampons, cups would feel little uncomfortable for the first time but, will be better with regular usage.
Why leave the pads/tampons? Check out the below-listed points for a better understanding :-
1. Superb for long hours
Menstrual cups are long lasting! They hold bleeding up to 12 hours, that technically means you just need to empty a cup once a day and stay peaceful while sleeping. Isn’t that convenience next level?
2. Money Saver
Save huge! Needless to buy regular pads or those separate business for day and night. Menstrual cups last from 6 months to 10 years depending on the care you’ve given to them! Wash them thoroughly and sanitize properly before use.
3. Avoid pharmacy awkwardness
Felt disgusting by the awkward looks of the pharmacy keeper? Even if you order your sanitary napkins through a period tracker app, the hassle remains there, and what if you forget a pad when on periods? Cups can save you the horror!
4. No leakages
Tampons and sanitary napkins have a risk of leakages, and those dirty clothes are too tacky to wash! Menstrual cups are airtight, comes in different sizes (for before and after childbirth, if you’ve delivered vaginally). Stay absolutely carefree even without changing a cup for 12 hours (provided you do not have too heavy flow).
5. Less risk for TSS
Half of the population doesn’t even know what’s TSS. Its Toxic Shock Syndrome, a bacteria spurred illness that can kill you, literally! In some cases, the tiny bits of cotton can cause small cuts in your vaginal walls, a place for a breeding ground for the bacteria causing TSS.
Avoid period rashes, sleep better and know your actual flow on different days. Try menstrual cups for better menses hygiene.
