Welcome to sustainable living!
If you’ve used a tampon before, menstrual cups should be simpler for you. For those of you who haven’t used a tampon either, you’re in for a ride. Jokes. It’s not that tricky. Practice makes you perfect.
What is a menstrual cup?
Menstrual cups are the most economical menstrual product so far. Our cup is made of 100% Medical Grade Silicone and in an FDA approved facility. They are supposed to be inserted into your vagina. It can collect up to 26 ml of blood and no, it doesn’t leak out. On an average, we bleed just about 20 ml a day but never forget the thumb rule with any period products; keep a check every 4-5 hours.
WHICH SIZE DO I USE?
Extra Small (16 ML) - This one is especially designed for all the teenagers below 18 years of age. It's small in size and easy to insert for all those who first want to familiarise themselves with the cup. It can store upto 16 ML of blood.
Small (21 ML) – This is recommended for women who have never given birth or have delivered via C-Section.
Large (26 ML) – This is recommended for women who have given birth.
HOW DO I REMOVE MENSTRUAL CUP?
Removing the cup is definitely much less complicated. All you have to do is squat or sit on the toilet and use your index finger or any finger with the thumb to pull the cup out.
Remember when you do take the cup out, you need to angle the menstrual cup sideways to take out one half of the cup first followed by the other half ensuring the blood doesn’t fall out of the cup.
