Things to Consider in Switching to Menstrual Cups

Writing about beauty and lifestyle is a hobby of mine. Though I mainly focuses on skincare, I am also fond of writing about wellness and self-care in general. This includes body care, health and even issues regarding hygiene. 

Recently, I've been reading a lot about Menstrual Cup or MC. It isn't new to me since I've known about it for a few years now, but I've only started studying about it recently. I actually wanted to try using it, but I don't want to start on something I am not fully ready to dedicate myself into. I actually wanted to switch fully into MC, but I am still getting to know more about the pros and cons of using it.

Mentrual cup is a device inserted in the vagina to collect menstrual fluid during menstruation. These are usually made of flexible, medical grade silicone. Oftentimes, menstrual cups are shaped like a bell. I've also seen some MCs evolved in different designs. Some were shaped like a ring, some were V-shaped, and some varies in sizes and colors as well. If you plan to start selling menstrual cups as a business, you can customize MCs based on what design you want. Contact a silicone mold supplier for that. 

Cleaning and storing the menstrual cups are easy as well. Give them a quick clean and store them in some silicone kitchen utensil such as storage boxes for a cleaner and organized look. When going out, you can opt to store them in storage pouches instead.

For its pros and cons, I believe the pros can outsmart the cons. I especially like trying it as it will save me more money in the future because I don't have to buy pads often. More than that, I like that I will have less problem on trash since MCs are more environment friendly as [ads take around 500-800 years to decompose. 

I think the only cons would be the difficulty of insertion, but I believe there's always a learning curve with everything so with practice, it can be achieved in time.

Since my main concern to switching to menstrual cups is the fear of leakage especially when out at home, I'm considering starting it first at home until I get full usage control with it before using it outside.

So, if you want to make the switch for a better, cleaner and healthy world, go for menstrual cups. It provides a healthier alternative and, in the end, a much cleaner environment.
