What Is A Menstrual Cup? The Mcup is a reusable menstrual cup, made from a soft, silicon rubber and is around two inches long. It is worn internally like a tampon but collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing. Unlike tampons, a menstrual cup is not a disposable product, so you only need to buy one.
Choose Your Size.
Size S is recommended for women under 30 years old who have never delivered vaginally. Size L is recommended for women 30 years and older.
There are several factors to consider:
BIRTHS: Because the vagina is stretched when giving birth, it may change shape, meaning that a larger cup is needed. In most cases, after a vaginal birth you will have to change to the next larger size.
PHYSIQUE: Small, petite women often use sizes S or M. Women who are tall and strong tend to prefer larger sizes. Body size and stature seem to have an impact on the required size of a menstrual cup.
FITNESS LEVEL: Sports activities affect overall stability of your connective tissue, as well as general muscle tone. Sports and exercise have a strengthening effect on the pelvic floor muscles, particularly yoga, Pilates and Kegel exercises. Women who have stronger pelvic floor muscles usually prefer a smaller menstrual cup.
AGE: It is commonly said that the size of choice for menstrual cups is dependent on age, with the reason that muscle tone decreases with age and therefore older women will need a larger menstrual cup. However, our evidence leads us to believe that there is no demonstrable connection between age and the need for larger menstrual cups. Women with small physiques, whose stature has not changed and have had no vaginal births, may well use size S until menopause. Similarly, a young woman might be tall and strong, and might use size L successfully from a young age.
Menstrual cups are the new menstrual trend, many women have made the switch already and would never go back. Don’t be afraid of change, making the transition from tampons to cups is simple and is a positive choice for your body and your life. We show you how to get started with a menstrual cup.
1. Before you start, you will want to gently wash your menstrual cup with warm water. You can also use an unscented soap to ensure that all dust and lint is removed. Be sure to rinse thoroughly. Hold your MCup and ensure that the stem is pointing down. You can then fold your cup so that it is coming in on itself.
2. Your menstrual cup folds, allowing for easy and comfortable insertion. You will then want to squeeze your cup so that it is flat. Once flat, fold it in half and make a “U Shape” with the rim...
