Menstral Cups .... another option besides pads and tampons
I just wanted to post and let everyone know about this awesome product I found by accident 2 years ago, the menstral cup!!! It is an alternative to pads or tampons .... I never knew we had another option!!
It's a 'cup' that fits inside of you (just like a tampon) and catches rather than absorbs the blood. I know it sounds kind of weird and and maybe even gross and I thought so too until I was up until 2 in the morning researching it and decided ah what the heck I'll give it a try.
There are many diffrent brand to choose from but I researched and chose the Moon Cup. As of now I have been using it for 2 years and I have SO many good things to say about it you would thing I was a spokes person (BTW, I am not, lol) but I just really love the product and swear by it. I just want to do my best to let all other women know that they too have an option because I never knew that I did.
Some of the great priases that I have about the menstral cup:
- The cost is far cheaper in the long run since cups last for 10 years.
- They are far better for the enviroment
- They are worn entirely inside the body so it can't be seen by anyone even if you are naked (like a tampon string)
- Once you get the hang of inserting it right and cut the stem you can't feel it at all
- I no longer leak EVER and I ALWAYS used to
- I only have to empty my cup maybe 3 times a day on my heavy days and on others only once a day or I could even go to every other day if I really wanted to!!
- my periods have gotten lighter and shorter since I started using the cup
- I never have to worry about trying to hide a tampon or pad while walking to a public restroom to change it because the cup is already inside me
- I feeler cleaner and less irritated than when I used a tampon or pad
- no one even in my own house ever knows when I have my period now because there are no more tampon tubes, wrappers or used pads to hide in the garbage
- I feel so much more confident now when I have my period
I really can't stress enough how much this little cup has changed my life! I used to dread my period before and plan trips and vacations around it. Now I could care less, there are time when I have my period and even forget that I do because the cup is so amazing.
I'm begging you, do yourself a favor and try something out of the box .... it just might be an amazing experience!!!!
