Some Important Factors That Could Change Your Mind About Menstrual Cups

About Menstrual Cups

From natural health blogs to OTT platforms, there’s a lot of buzz surrounding menstrual cups. Organic menstrual cups are the latest and greatest invention in period protection and the most remarkable trend in “feminine hygiene”. Although period cups are there since the mid-1900s, it wasn’t until now that women found them ubiquitous for their period hygiene.

Females are rediscovering the small silicone products as an eco-friendly, cost-effective alternative to pads and tampons and the reason is justified. The resurgence of organic menstrual cups has a lot more to do than personal preference. Let’s find out what all the hype is about. Here are a few intriguing factors about menstrual cups that can change your mind. Dive in!


When you order a menstrual cup, you don’t just do a favor to yourself; you also do a favor to the environment. As per popular reports, period products generate a ton of trash, and cutting back on the amount you toss out can help to create a big difference in your ecological footprint. Period cups can last for about three to four years, which means they generate way less waste in the long run.

Easy on your pocket

Considering how much you spend on pads or tampons over the course of 3-4 years, menstrual cups are relatively cheaper. You can shell out about $500 when you are using a menstrual cup. Save on the money that you would have otherwise spent on disposable products. Now, say hello to new shoes!

Fewer risks

Most women have a notion that insertable menstrual products pose the risk of toxic shock syndrome. However, as per a case report issued by the Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology, TSS is rare when you use menstrual cups. With tampons, Toxic shock syndrome can be a frequent occurrence if you are following the instructions, removing and cleaning the cup at least every 12 hours.

Additional benefits

Besides being affordable and safer, menstrual cups hold more blood than pads or tampons. They are better for the environment than pads or tampons. Menstrual cups can also be worn with an IUD and the best part is they don’t slip or slide.

Have all the outdoor fun

Menstrual cups can be worn while you are going out for swimming or trekking. They will stay put without the threat of leakage or sliding. Wear them for about 8 hours and then drain them to use for your next cycle.


When Aunt Flo comes to town, a menstrual cup can be a lifesaver. As per stats, on average a woman has her menstruation for about 3-7 days. This invariably and implicitly means a woman lives about 6.25 years of period (roughly 2,280 days) in her life. In India, an average woman (between the menstruating age of 13 and 51) disposes of over 10,000 tampons in her life. The numbers are startling and problematic, and the only way to make lives simpler for women during ‘that time of the month’ is to order a menstrual cup.
