There are many reasons why you should switch from tampons to menstrual cups:
Menstrual cups are generally very easy to use, so whichever menstrual cup you choose, you’ll learn to use it in no time. In this review I’ll recommend 3 top menstrual cups with the best ratings and user reviews.
It’s by far the most popular menstrual cup on the market. Made entirely from BPA-free silicone, it comes in two sizes: size 1 for women before the age of 30 who have never given birth vaginally or caesarean section and size 2 for women over 30 or those who’ve given birth either vaginally or by caesarean section.
It’s important to choose the right size of Diva Cup to prevent leakage and make sure it fits perfectly. It comes with a drawstring bag for convenient storage.
Lena is made of 100% USA medical-grade BPA-free silicone and dyes. It also comes in two size, but they are based on your flow: size 1 for light to medium flow (41mm in diameter) and size 2 for medium to heavy flow (45mm in diameter).
For beginners, the manufacturer recommends using size 2. Lena menstrual cup is sold with a storage bag.
Made from FDA approved BPA-free medical grade silicone Blossom menstrual cup comes in two sizes: small and large. According to manufacturer, it lasts for up to 15 years of regular use, pretty impressive! It comes with a handy storage pouch.
Based on all the often contradicting reviews I read, I assume that it’s best to try one of the above cups and see how it works for you. Each of us has a different vaginal canal and a menstrual cup that fits one women perfectly may be extremely uncomfortable to another one. Also, as the percentages of positive reviews show, you’re mor likely to love your menstrual cup than throw it to the bin!
Using a menstrual cup takes some getting used to, it may seem difficult at first attempt, but believe me, it gets easier with a bit of practice. You need to be completely relaxed and follow these steps:
While finding a menstrual cup that suits your needs may not be easy, it’s really worth trying. First of all it’s much more hygienic than tampons and it’s less of a health risk. Tampons is a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast making you more prone to vaginal infections.
While tampons are also one of the leading causes of toxic shock syndrome, a potentially deadly condition, there’s only been one reported case of a menstrual cup causing TSS.
By using menstrual cups you’re also more environmentally friendly by creating less waste and it helps you save a lot of money. Think about it, a menstrual cup that costs $30-$40 will last you for years, how much do you spend on tampons every month?
At the end of the day, if you find that menstrual cups are definitely not for you, some sellers offer a 90 day full refund, so you can get your money back.
