Menstrual Cups

Menstrual Cups

Menstruation is both a blessing and a curse to all women. Regular menstruation is 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 heard already about menstrual cups. 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.

  • What are menstrual cups?
    A menstrual cup is a menstrual hygiene device which is inserted into the vagina during menstruation. Its purpose is to collect menstrual fluid.
  • Why is it more ethical to use a menstrual cup?
    It’s the eco-friendly choice to use menstrual cups. A Bulan 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. So by switching to reusable feminine hygiene like the menstrual cup, you are certainly being eco-friendly by helping lessen waste.
  • Do menstrual cups hurt?
    Many people can’t feel their cups at all once they’re inserted, and it shouldn’t be painful when you insert it, either (though it might take more practice to use than a tampon or pad).

Benefits of Menstrual Cups

This fem-hygiene product 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 burning 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. In fact, more than 400 million pounds of sanitary pads and tampons end up in landfills each year! 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.

Different Sizes of Menstrual Cups

Before you purchase a menstrual cup, make sure you have selected the right size. For you to know your size, you can check the manufacturer’s size guide. In general, menstrual cups come in small and large sizes. Small is the size recommended for beginners who are 30 years old and below. Small size is also ideal for those who haven’t given birth. Large is for ladies who have a heavier flow, have given birth or are 31 years old and above.

Remember that the size varies depending on your current preferences and condition. You could consult your gynecologist to ensure what menstrual-cup-size suits you most.

Care and Maintenance

Upon using your 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. Then, store it in its case or pouch afterward.
