We know that having menstruation is never the most comfortable thing of the month and all that this entails launches us to an eternal search for options that allow us to perform better at all hours in our reddest days. Fortunately, there are more and more alternatives that help us to cope with these days with the greatest possible comfort.
One of these alternatives, and the most recent one, is the menstrual cup. That little device made of surgical plastic has become the best friend of many … and with good reason. Although we know that choosing your method of intimate hygiene is a personal matter, we want to present you some of the advantages for which you should give the menstrual cup a chance.
And we believe it is the most important. Being comfortable on your bleeding days is essential and is something we seek all at all hours. Unlike female pads and tampons (which have to be changed every four hours at least), the menstrual cup can be worn for up to 12 hours; In addition, it gives you the certainty that you will not have stains or bad smells. In addition to this, it is ideal to use in any physical activity you do: swimming, gym routine, running, etc.
If you are one of those who tries to take care of our planet as much as possible, you will love to know that the menstrual cup is reusable and lasts up to 10 years! Just disinfect it before starting your period and wash it with soap and water every time you have to reinsert it. Imagine how much garbage you stop generating!

Safe for your body
Toxic shock syndrome, associated with the use of tampons, is a condition that can be fatal even though very little is said about it. The cup is completely harmless since it is made of surgical plastic and materials that do not harm your body. EYE: there are some cups that are made of latex, and if you are allergic to this component, it is better that you stay away from it and look for those made from surgical silicone or TPE.
Although using the menstrual cup can be something very different, and perhaps a little disgusting at first, we assure you that it is all a matter of getting used to it. Of course, each person is different and not all of us can use the same; However, we recommend that you give yourself the opportunity to try new alternatives to make them easier on those days of the month… perhaps you will end up being surprised.
