I may have been acquainted with Aunt Flow since , but back then my mum had informed me there were only two options for dealing with the blood that came flying outta my lady parts once a month: pads, or tampons.
So, team tampon it was. However, being a self-confessed health freak, over the years I have become more aware of the risks associated with tampon use. A substances capable of causing cancer eek! I was shocked to learn this but totally stuck for solutions. Basically, menstrual cups are little cup-shaped obvs pieces of hypoallergenic, medical-grade silicone — no BPA or nasty chemicals! They are inserted into the vagina just like a tampon but can be worn for up to 12 hours!
And instead of absorbing everything like a tampon does , it just collects it all instead, so your natural balance is protected. Plus, there is no environmental waste.
So practically everyone is winning! Except perhaps the squeamish among us…. But as I learned more and more about the benefits of cups and the risks of the alternate options , I actually started coming around to the idea.
The tipping point was when I began seeing reviews written by women who had suffered extreme period pain and found that using a cup had reduced their cramps significantly. Luckily, I was willing to try anything before resorting to the latter. Even a menstrual cup. I tried doing a bit of research but found lots of conflicting info and opinions.
