Menstrual cups, are they really good?

Menstrual cups, just a trend or the healthy and lasting solution?


A small, flexible silicone cup that looks like a tumbler is increasingly competing with napkins and tampons. But what is a menstrual cup, how does it work and for whom is it suitable?





Using a Menstrual Cup seemed just as unusual and taboo as talking about it freely until 5 years ago. Today, the mug is not only a trend, but it is gaining more and more followers.

We are breaking the taboo and talking about it openly!

The menstrual cup is inserted into the vagina to collect the bleeding. Unlike tampons or pads, menstrual cups do not absorb blood, but hold fluid. The small container can hold up to 48ml of liquid, which is three times more than a normal tampon. Depending on your bleeding, you can remove the cup, rinse it and put it back. The great thing is that the menstrual cup is easy to clean and reusable. (up to 10 years)



Gynecologists recommend the menstrual cup, made of medical silicone, to all women.



For beginners, using a menstrual cup takes a bit of practice at first, but once you've done it a few times you'll get a hang of it and it'll be as quick as using a tampon.

How do I insert my menstrual cup?

You bend your menstrual cup and insert it into your vagina. Inside, the flexible cup returns to its original shape and adapts perfectly to the inner wall of the vagina. A vacuum is automatically created. If the cup does not fit properly right away, you can adjust it by twisting and pulling the rod at the end. If you don't feel it at all, then this is the right solution.



How and when should I empty my menstrual cup?

If you want to empty your cup, you must first release the vacuum. You can do this by gently squeezing the lower end of the cup and then carefully pulling it out, preferably in the toilet, as you did with tampons. Empty the cup and rinse it well in the sink. Now you can just put it back. Pay attention when cleaning: Please do not use normal soaps or disinfectants to clean the menstrual cup. Such products can damage the material in the long term. After your period, you should boil the cup for 5-10 minutes for hygienic reasons. Depending on the intensity of your period, you will need to empty it two to four times a day.

Are menstrual cups durable?

You can use a menstrual cup for 5-10 years if you take care of it, and it produces much less waste than disposable products.
