Menstrual Cup VS Tampons
What Is It?
Tampons and pads are the most mainstream feminine hygiene products. These products operate by absorbing any menstrual fluid. Menstrual cups operate similar to tampons and are inserted into the vagina, but rather than absorbing menstrual fluid, they collect it. These cups can be used throughout your cycle, and require rinsing out every 9 – 12 hours depending on flow.
Our cups are designed for long-term use – 10 years – providing a significant cost savings over tampons and pads. Since you can reuse them, there’s less waste to clog up our landfills and fewer trees sacrificed to make the paper-based alternatives.
Safer Than Tampons
Because menstrual cups collect, rather than absorb, blood, you’re not at risk of getting toxic shock syndrome (TSS), a rare bacterial infection associated with tampon use.
Reusable menstrual cups can last a long time, which means you’re not contributing more waste to the environment.
Fewer Shop Visits
Even if you replace your cup once a year, you’ll still make 11 fewer trips to the pharmacy than you would if you used the disposable paper-based methods.
More Time Between Changes
You need to change tampons every four to eight hours, depending on flow. You can go up to 12 hours with a menstrual cup before emptying.
Easy To Use
Anyone who has used tampons, especially the kind without applicators, should have little trouble learning how to insert a menstrual cup. Simply fold it so it looks like a tampon, aim it toward the back of the vagina and give a little push. It should actually draw itself up. When inserted properly, you shouldn’t feel its presence at all.
Can Be Messy
You may find yourself in a place or position that makes it difficult or awkward to remove your cup. That means you may not be able to avoid spills during the process.
They can be Tough to Insert or Remove
You may find that you’re not getting the right fold when you put in your menstrual cup. Or you may have a hard time pinching the base to pull the cup down and out.
New research has found that women spend as much as £18,450 on their periods over the course of their lifetime. This is an absurd amount of money which can be drastically reduced by using reusable, environmentally friendly and leak-free menstrual cups.
On average women spend a minimum of around £12 a month on period pad, tampons and new underwear (from leakages). The menstrual cup costs £20 which is less than 2 months of standard non-reusable period expenses and will last 10 years. That is a huge saving of at least £1,440!
Making the change to another menstrual product is easier than you may think. Using a menstrual cup is very similar to using tampons, just with improved health benefits – no irritation, no chemicals and no drying out.
Menstrual cups are the modern alternative to tampons and pads. They are environmentally friendly and super healthy. Finding the right menstrual cup doesn’t have to be tricky. Our menstrual cups comes in two different sizes, small and large.
