My experience with a Menstrual Cup

menstrual cupsFrom that time I used menstruation as an example, I found myself thinking a lot on the subject.

I didn’t spend a lot of thinking in it till then, and I realized I am in fact deeply interested in the matter, though I still have to take the time to find out all the reasons for it.

I decided to follow my instincts, and my first step was to throw away all pads and tampons, and getting a menstrual cup instead.

For those who don’t know what it is, or who want to know more, I’m leaving a short but quite complete video at the end of the post.

And now I’d like to share with you a review I sent to the manufacturers :

I bought my menstrual cup in january.

At first I wasn’t sure about the size, I finally chose the big size and fortunately it fit perfectly.

From the very first moment I felt very comfortable, instructions were clear and I had no problem to insert and remove the cup. The second day I used it at work, and  it worked perfectly.

I really like this experience, I feel connected to my body and my blood in a very new way.

I did have some trouble recognizing when to empty the cup, maybe on the first day of the period I would need to do it often, but on the second day less than half as often.

However, I consider this also helps me know my cycle a little bit better.

The only disadvantage I found was that it is not very practical to empty in public bathrooms like I use at work. On the other hand, since it takes many hours to need a change, I could adapt my cup schedule so I could empty it at home.

Thank you for bringing this option to all women, and I’m glad there’s more of us every day.
