What is a menstrual cup?
A menstrual cup is a reusable period product. Unlike tampons and other single-use disposables, menstrual cups can be cleaned and reused, often for years before they need to be replaced. They’re a funnel or bell-shaped cup that is made from flexible silicone and is inserted inside the vagina to catch and hold onto period fluids until ready to be emptied.
The main appeal of menstrual cups is that they’re eco-friendly alternatives to disposable alternatives. As they collect fluids rather than absorb them, they can hold more blood than tampons and pads. Depending on your flow, you could wear a menstrual cup for up to 8 hours, reducing the need for a number of disposable tampons or pads.
