Menstruation can be both a blessing and a curse to all women. Menstruation can be a sign that your hormones are well-balanced and that your body is functioning well as it should. But unfortunately, this time of natural cleansing comes with mood swings, cramps and expensive and wasteful menstrual items. If you are seeking to become more eco-friendly with the items you use during your period, you might have already heard about Mirko menstrual cups and period underwear. Mirko is a women’s essentials brand that provides sleek menstrual cups and period underwear products. Essentially, a menstrual cup is a flexible bell-shaped cup designed to collect menstrual blood.
To start using this hygiene device, you fold it and insert it in your vagina. Simply empty the cup every 6-8 hours and you’re good to go.Most menstrual or period cups are made of rubber or silicone, so for our readers who are sensitive to latex, we suggest that you use a menstrual cup made entirely of silicone.
The menstrual cup is a fem-hygiene product that is now making its way to the local market and you’re probably considering giving it a shot by now. One benefit of using menstrual cups is that you will save tons of cash! A menstrual cup can last for about 10 years and simply buying 3 of these will have you set for a couple of years, which is surely more efficient than buying pads monthly. Plus, it’s also good for the environment. So by switching to reusable feminine hygiene like the menstrual cup, you are certainly being eco-friendly by helping lessen waste.
Another benefit is that no matter how light or heavy your period flow may be, you’ll have more time between changes as you only need to empty your cup every 6-8 hours per day.
Mirko offers different women’s essential products such as the Mirko Menstrual Cup, and its varying Flow Duo Period Underwear Kits.
The Flow Underwear is available in sizes S, M, L and XL and is sold in pack sizes of singles, packs of 3 and an assorted pack of 3. It’s also made of smooth polyester spandex and has a leak-proof lining, making this item super comfy and reliable during heavy period days. These underwears along with the menstrual cup can surely help make your period days much smoother and easier.
Once you’re done using your Mirko menstrual cup, simply wash the cup with mild soap and water. And if the menstrual cycle is over, we suggest sterilizing it again in preparation for the next month. To sterilize it, you can put the cup in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Remember to not let the cup touch the bottom of the pot. Once you’re done, leave it there for a few minutes to let the water cool down. Take out your period cup and dry it with a clean towel.
And finally, store it in its case or pouch afterward.
