Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Many still insist on using traditional hygiene products, such as tampons and pads. Although more and more women and girls are going for menstrual cup, some still stick with traditional products that they consider as the best, safest and most reliable choice despite many contraindications. Old habits die hard, but we must stop being afraid to try something new!
Do you think that the cost of modern innovative products may be too high?
That is the first doubt to be eliminated – the investment in menstrual cup is on average comparable to the three-month purchase cost of traditional hygiene products, but a single cup can be used for several years!
Do you think it is bad for the environment?
Definitely not – single menstrual cup can be used for many years, while traditional feminine hygiene products have to be disposed after each use, thus creating tons of waists each year.
And how it might affect your health?
This is also something you should not be worried about. Unlike traditional hygiene products, menstrual cup does not irritate the vaginal mucosa or cause dryness. It is produced of high-grade medical silicone, free of any potentially harmful chemicals, which reduces the risk of inflammation, yeast infection and allergies.
So what prevents you from testing a menstrual cup?
Prejudices. And it's about time to overcome them once and for all. Don't you agree?
