Why Choose a Menstrual Cup Instead of Tampon or Pads

So, Why Menstrual Cups?

They are reusable, and will hence markedly reduce the plastic consumption per year; other hygiene products use plastics and other non-biodegradable products in their manufacturing.

The tampons and pads are made up of various blends of rayon and cotton as well as other harmful chemicals as part of their manufacture that can eventually be harmful to both the user and the environment.

With menstrual cups, you can avoid the impact of the long-term effect. They are extremely cost-effective as they are reusable and even after repetitive use, they remain hygienic if properly maintained.

They are long lasting and can be used over an extended time period; they do not absorb liquid and thus reduce the risk of infection. It is hassle-free as the user doesn’t have to worry about changing it from time to time like sanitary pads or tampons.

It is extremely useful for women who are on the go, have a hectic work schedule or are involved in athletic activities. If the cup is inserted properly, then there are virtually no chances of leakage for the whole day. Hence, it is extremely beneficial for women who are working for long hours or are involved in certain athletic activities like swimming, hiking and running, where constant need for changing can create a hindrance for work.

While using the menstrual cup, blood is collected rather than absorbed. In case of pads or tampons, blood that's been absorbed can convert into a semi-coagulated form that remains in the vagina, hence the formation of an unpleasant smell/

With menstrual cups, the chances of odor is noticeably reduced. Sometimes for medical purposes, the user might need to keep track of the amount of menstrual fluid that she is producing. A menstrual cup allows the user to keep track as some of the cups even have appropriate measuring marks on them.
