Still here? Okay. What is a menstrual cup anyway? It's an eco-friendly alternative to tampons. I am going to spare myself the agony of explaining what a menstrual cup is. Go ahead and read about what it is from the companies who make them: check out DivaCup and Mooncup.
Why have I converted? I thought of all the waste that I contribute to every month that I use pads or tampons, and I was intrigued to find out there was another alternative. I decided to make the switch and after using it for two months now, I am quite happy with it.
The good: Eco-friendly, needs to be emptied only about three times a day from my own experience, freedom to move, makes me forget I have my period.
The awkward: Tricky to use during the first few times, you need access to water to clean your cup which means it is best you only empty it at home.
Interested to get one? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do a group order and save on shipping costs. You only need one and it supposedly lasts for years!
