Forget you are on your Period, period!

Monday, 7 July 2014

One of the exciting perks of switching to the menstrual cup is that it allows you to forget that you are on your period entirely. The menstrual cup can safely be worn for up to 12 hours, which means you can go through an entire day without worrying about changing your pad or trying to calculate how many hours you’ve worn your tampon.

Pads should be changed every 4-5 hours or every 2-3 hours if the flow is extremely heavy, and if you do not change it frequently enough you can get a yeast infection. Tampons can safely be worn for 8 hours, but if you plan to sleep for longer than that, tampons can become dangerous. Toxic Shock Syndrome is not a myth! Toxic Shock Syndrome is caused by excessive tampon use and can result in fever, vomiting, fainting, and even death.  In addition to being safe to wear for longer durations than pads or tampons, the menstrual cup has a much higher capacity than even the most super absorbent tampon out there! A super absorbency tampon can hold 12- 15 ml and can only be worn for 8 hours, while the menstrual cup holds 18+ ml and can be worn for 12 hours safely. The menstrual cup is the obvious winner if you want to stop worrying about bleeding through your clothes and constantly changing your tampon. 

Be the change your body (and the environment) needs today! Cup Up!
