Heyyyyy, girl heyyyy. So, you’re on the fence about getting a menstrual cup? Well let me just push you off the fence and get you ready to commit hahaha because they are LIFE CHANGING.
First things first, never in a million years did I think I’d be writing a blog post about how much I love a freakin’ menstrual cup. At the beginning of this decade, I know for a FACT I was making fun of these things and thought anyone who wouldn’t just keep using tampons was crazy. It’s amazing how we can change in ten years.
I purchased an OrganiCup off of amazon (affiliate link below)
Why did I choose this one? Simply because my friend uses it, loves it and recommended it.
Now, every body is different. What works for me, might not work for you. I was fortunate enough to be able to use the first one I tried, but DON’T be discouraged if you have to try one it two before you get the right match for your body.
Here’s what the inside of the box looks like! It comes in a great little storage bag. It has instructions on sanitizing and inserting, with photos to help you if needed.
Seriously. If you would’ve told me ten years ago that I would be boiling water to sanitize my MENSTRUAL CUP, I would’ve laughed in your face.
So, I boiled it for 5 minutes per the instructions in the box.
I used the c-fold technique, which they illustrate on the packaging and it was ridiculously easy. I was so surprised.
You basically do the c-fold, insert and just make sure it opens completely. You might hear a weird suction sound (tmi, sorry not sorry) which is good! That means it’s in place.
It’s no more uncomfortable than a tampon and it has MUCH better leak protection.
Here are 5 reasons why I will be a menstrual cup user for LIFE!
- You can go to the bathroom and not change it every time
- The leak protection is out of this world
- I’ve worn it all day, with no leaks and barely even close to being full. (And id consider my flow to be moderate)
- It is WAY less disgusting than tampons, which came as a total shock to me
- Tampons are expensive and with proper care, this cup will last YEARS!
If you have any questions, I’d love to help you! I’m ridiculously excited about my new found love, and when I love something, I just wanna share the info with everyone! Hence this post lol
