The menstruation cycle is not optional which is why women have option and they go beyond the tampons or sanitary pads. One thing is for sure, menstrual cups are the best option but it is sad that many women are ignorant because they do not know what this means for them. The cups have never be linked to toxic shock syndrome which is common as far as tampons are involves. TSS is serious infection which is brought about by wearing a tampon for longer that expected. The cups just hold the blood but do not absorb it which minimizes bacteria growth. The vaginal walls are not exposed to the outside environment which means the cup will be protected from outside air once in place. This slows down if not prevents bacterial growth which is good news for every woman. A reusable menstrual cup is something every woman should have.
Tampons do not just absorb the menstrual blood but also the secretions in the vagina which leaves it very dry. When the vaginal environment is interrupted, the area will be left exposed and itchy and this might be the start of infections not to mention injuries. Menstrual cups collect the blood only which ensures the reproductive system will be able to function natural. You will not have to keep emptying the cups every 3 or 6 hours because they can stay in place for twelve hour. These are very comfortable to wear too and sometimes you even forget that there is a foreign object inside you. Do not let the thought of a cup in your body alarm you because it feels very comfortable when you give yourself time to adjust.
The cups are known as reusable for a reason which means you get to use them over and over again. You will be able to save the money which you could otherwise be using on a monthly basis to buy tampons or sanitary towels. Since the cups will collect the blood before it gets out, there will be no period odor to worry about. You will be saved from the anxiety of worrying when your seatmate or the person next to you will notice that you are menstruating. Tampons and sanitary pads will be exposed to air and this is what causes the unpleasant period odor.
