How to use a menstrual cup?
The menstrual cup is a device that is inserted into the vagina to collect menstrual blood. It has an adjustable tail so that every woman can use the right size for her. The menstrual cup is made of medical silicone and is used instead of tampons and pads.
Compared to a tampon, which absorbs blood, the menstrual cup collects it inside, helping to prevent vaginal infections or dryness. The cup must cover the cervical opening to prevent bleeding. The menstrual cup is left in the vagina for a period of time, depending on the menstrual flow.
For example, a woman with a light flow might leave the cup in her vagina for 8-10 hours, while a woman with a heavier flow might need to change it every 3-4 hours. The cup’s protective ring helps create a vacuum in the vaginal canal providing safety against leakage.
The menstrual cup is removed to be emptied and then reinserted. The cup can be worn during the day and at night, even during strenuous physical activity such as running or cycling.
Menstrual cup versus pads
The menstrual cup is a one-time purchase as opposed to pads. For example, it can be worn for a longer period of time without being replaced, so there is no worry about frequently changing pads or tampons. On top of that, the material is natural and contains no chemicals, being biocompatible and does not develop bacterial cultures.
Menstrual cup versus internal tampons
The menstrual cup is a safe and effective alternative to tampons. The menstrual cup captures the blood inside it, not interfering with the vaginal flora, and does not cause dryness. It is also a hygienic, comfortable and effective option for any woman. In addition, from an economic point of view, the menstrual cup is the optimal choice.
