I’ve been using tampons relatively happily since I was 15-years-old. I know that they can be pricey, and their environmental impact is definitely problematic. But they’re a low maintenance option that work with my ultra busy lifestyle. I’m sure many of you who wear them agree. However, if you’re getting frustrated with tampons and pads, and you really want to try out another option, you should totally consider using menstrual cups.
A menstrual cup is a small vessel that you insert into your vag during your time of the month. Blood is collected and you simply empty it out at the end of the day. Everyone I know who uses menstrual cups absolutely raves about them and swears they will never ever go back to tampons or pads again. Intrigued? Well, check out these seven things you absolutely need to know about menstrual cups before taking the plunge.
