13 Reasons Why You Should Switch to a Menstrual Cup

13 Reasons Why You Should Switch to a Menstrual Cup

Posted by Gee Ann on

"Menstrual cup? What's that?" If you've never heard of this amazing product to help you manage your periods better, you're missing out! Here's why you should consider switching from disposable pads/tampons to a menstrual cup.

1. No more rashes and odour

Pads create a stifling, moist environment which is ground zero for yeast infections, bacteria and odour.

2. Menstrual cups don't "suck"

Tampons aren't great either; other than absorbing your menstrual fluid, they also absorb the natural moisture produced by your vagina. On the other hand, a menstrual cup collects rather than absorbs the menstrual fluid, so you don't feel uncomfortable and dry.

3. You won't even feel it inside you

Inserted correctly, a menstrual cup is so comfortable that you won't even notice it’s there! It may take a little practice at first, but once you get the hang of inserting the menstrual cup, you will be amazed at how easy it is to use.

4. Great for heavy flow

Menstrual cups have a greater capacity than even the most absorbent tampon, so you can go longer between emptying your cup. Menstrual cups can be worn for up to 12 hours, depending on your flow.

5. Fewer toilet breaks

You no longer have to worry about finding a toilet to change your pad/tampon every few hours, especially when you're out and about.

6. Reusable and lasts for years

Unlike single-use disposable pads and tampons, menstrual cups are reusable and can last for several years with proper care.

7. Environmentally friendly

Since you can reuse your menstrual cup every period, there is less waste created to clog up our landfills or improperly disposed of in toilets to block up our sewage systems. Menstrual cups are not just good for your body; it's also good for our planet!

8. Water sports or physical activities? No problem!


Menstrual cups can be used no matter what physical activities you've planned for the day: doing sports, yoga, dancing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, biking, hiking, camping, travelling, and many more!

9. Free up your bag space

How many of you have extra pads or tampons in every bag? With a menstrual cup, you no longer have to carry around supplies in your bag. All you need is your trusty cup. If you're having your period, you're already 'carrying' your cup inside you! There's no need to bring anything extra.

10. Work long hours? This is for you!

Menstrual cups are great for people who work long hours or have few chances for toilet breaks, such as nurses or retail staff.

11. Save money

The cost of purchasing a menstrual cup is a one-time cost upfront, which provides you with years of use if you properly take care of it.

12. No more monthly supply runs

You no longer have to worry about running out of pads or tampons when your period is nearing every month. 

13. Do your business in comfort

If you always wet your tampon string while peeing and have to change one, you'll be happy to know that you won't take to take out your menstrual cup whenever you pee! Most or all of the cup will be safely inside your vagina, and if any part of the stem is sticking out, its silicone material won't absorb any pee and a wipe should suffice. You won't have to take it out when you poop either!

A menstrual cup will change your life, so it's time to ditch the disposables!
