I admit, I sometimes can be a little tired of all the inconveniences period brings. You too? When I started reading about how I can help myself feel better during those days of the month – one of them (obviously :P) being the usage of LaliCup menstrual cup – I realized that I will only be able to really use the potential of this wonderful device to the fullest only once I have learned the basic anatomy of my body.
Now, don’t get frightened, this will not be a lecture on human anatomy with a test at the end.
When it comes to using the menstrual cup, it is especially important to get to know the cervix and pelvic floor muscles more closely. The cervix affects where you will place the period cup in the vagina to perform its task effectively and without discomfort, and that muscles can significantly affect your comfort when using the cup and improve many other areas of your life.

|Pelvic floor muscles|
The pelvic floor muscles perform many important functions in a body – they support the vagina, uterus, intestines, bladder and rectum and ensure their proper functioning.
Strengthening these muscles ensures normal urine flow (and prevents incontinence), increases sexual pleasure, and helps make the menstrual cup more enjoyable and effective.
|How to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles?|
After childbirth, it often happens that the muscles become loose. You can strengthen them mainly by performing exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, also known as Kegel exercises.
With the help of vaginal balls, you can perform the exercises two times a day for 5 minutes, thus improving sexual pleasure, incontinence problems and the menstrual user experience.
Next time, let me tell you more about the cervix!
Have a lovely day. 🙂
