The most important question is what is better, more comfortable, or safer for you, personally. We can tell you that studies have shown that 70% of women using cups or reusable pads and period panties have felt fewer cramps while on period.
Also, the use of the menstrual cup showed no adverse effects on the vaginal flora, as an aggregating outcome from 43 studies and 3319 participants have shown, check more here.
While using our cups, pads, and underwear chemicals are not transferred to the body through sweat or directly into the vagina. Take into account that tampons absorb the natural secretions and can create dryness and infections. This is one motive to use reusable products, which are safer for your body month by month, for years.
Cups are perfect for women with heavy menstrual flow, but can also be used by virgins. For extra protection, you can use a washable pad or period underwear.
All these products are a good fit if you are concerned about all the waste generated by intimate products, but also if you care about having fewer chemicals absorbed by your body.
Cups, reusable pads, and period underwear are cheaper than monthly bought products, as you can use it, once purchased, for a minimum of 2 years.
35 years x 12 periods x 5 days average = 2100 days of period/ 5 years and 8 months of continuous period days – Crazy right?
4 period underwear/ day x 2100 days= 8400 period underwear
0.6 EUR/ pad x 8400 period underwear = 5040 EUR / IN A LIFETIME
FEMI.EKO® ’S PERIOD UNDERWEAR
In 35 YEARS you should change the period of Femi.eko sustainable products by about 7 times.
Let’s say you buy 6 period products during this time.
7 x 6 = 42 period underwear in a lifetime
25 EUR x 42 period underwear = 1050 EUR/ IN A LIFETIME
Cups will prevent any menstrual blood from entering into contact with air, so bacteria will not be created and, therefore no smell will be generated.
Pads and period underwear are made out of safe materials that block smells, even though, on the other hand, blood will always have a specific smell. We would say that smells are normal and Ok and encourage you to embrace your body as it is perfect, with its imperfections.
Very important: Our products are not sprayed nor do we use chemicals to block smells. You should not spray your intimate products, as perfume is not safe for the intimate area.
