Why Is A Menstrual Cup Better?

Menstrual cups are so much better for your body, the environment and your pay packet!

Menstrual cups are better for your body because: Tampons absorb 65% menstrual fluid and 35% natural moisture, creating imbalances in the moisture and pH levels of the vagina. Menstrual cups do not interfere with your healthy vaginal environment A menstrual cup will not deposit fibres in your vaginal wall Menstrual cups have not been associated with toxic shock syndrome. Menstrual cups contain no bleaches, deodorisers or absorbency gels. Silicon menstrual cups will not cause irritation and are suitable for women with sensitive skin, thrush, eczema or allergies.image

For your safety, the Mcup menstrual cup is made from a special medical grade non-allergic silicone. Silicone is derived from silica which is one of the most abundant minerals on earth. The smooth surface of the menstrual cup allows the mucus membranes of your vaginal wall to continue their essential cleansing and protective functions. The menstrual cup does not absorb your body’s natural defence mechanisms.

Menstrual cups are better for the environment and your pay packet because: Imagine the towels and tampons that you will be buying and disposing of in landfill sites during those years! The average woman throws away 125 to 150kg of tampons, pads and applicators in her lifetime. Unlike pads and tampons, menstrual cups are reusable, eliminating the need to carry bulky spares. With proper care your Mcup will last for several years.

Cleaning and Storing

During menstruation wash your Menstrual Cup with water each time you empty, before reinsertion. While on your period, there is no need to sterilize your cup between uses. After emptying, wash your cup with warm water. Avoid fragranced soaps that may alter the pH of your vagina.

If this isn’t possible, or you are in a public bathroom then just rinse with bottled water, or wipe clean with tissue. Make sure to wash your cup with water at least once a day. At the end of your period, your cup must be sterilized before storing each month. Rinse your cup, and immerse in a pan of water. Boil for 5 minutes. After disinfecting, dry and store your cup, ready for next month.
