Periods usually create a lot of discomfort for women, more so when you’re using the traditional tampons and disposable pads. Now, if you haven’t tried a menstrual cup before, don’t worry. We all went through that stage when we thought that tampons and disposable pads were the only things that could keep us from having a better period experience. But this isn’t the case now, thanks to a really good menstrual cup review that I’ve read about before I decided to ditch the traditional disposable pads.
Like every product in the market, finding the best menstrual cup may be a challenge. You may have to try different versions or brands before you actually find the perfect fit. Many manufacturers have made their own versions like some menstrual cups are disposable and some are reusable. Disposable menstrual cups are inexpensive whilst the reusable ones are usually pricey. This doesn’t mean though that I don’t recommend the latter. Although it may be considered pricey to the average income earners, you bet you’re lucky stars that it’ll be worth it.
Reusable menstrual cups can be used for several months. Some women claim they’ve used it for up to 12 months. Imagine all the money you save instead of buying tampons and disposable pads every time you have your period? Not only that, you’ll be able to contribute to the environment in your own small and personal way. These are typical eco-friendly, although some versions contain synthetic or harmful ingredients, you need to stir clear from those. The safe version that doesn’t contain toxic ingredients should be what you need. Look for brands that are safe and doesn’t contain toxic materials or ingredients.
Another good thing that women mention in menstrual cup reviews is the fact that you don’t have to change or empty the cup for up to 12 hours. Unlike when you’re using tampons or disposable pads which you’ll need to keep changing, sometimes in even less than an hour, just to avoid leakage. If you’re not familiar with how does a menstrual cup work, it is folded then inserted into the vagina and rotated until it rests on the vaginal walls. It should fit well to prevent any leaks, which reminds us to make sure that the size or version of the cup you purchase must be suitable for your age bracket or group.
