Menstrual Cups are quite simply life changing! They make your period easier to manage, far more comfortable and higher capacity. I just wish they had existed when I was younger!
Don't be put off trying a reusable menstrual cup if you've never got on with tampons, reusable menstrual cups work completely differently and not at all comparable.
Tampons strip your vaginal walls of its lining and soak up the healthy discharge and vaginal secretions you need to keep your body's natural flora at the optimum levels.
A menstrual cup takes the blood, menstrual fluid and leaves everything else.
As with tampons it is still important to regularly empty and clean your period cups to prevent toxic shock syndrome. Once you try a cup you'll never want to use disposable tampons again!

Cups give you the freedom to get on with your life and forget your period is even happening. Menstrual cup use has increased by an incredible amount in the last decade. Silicone cup users regularly tell us how they have improved their lives.

Using a Menstrual Cup is Easy!
