12 reasons why you should switch from panty liners, pads and tampons to menstrual cup

You’re currently using panty liners, pads and tampons and are considering switching to menstrual cup, but you’re not totally sure it’s the right choice for you? The menstrual cup is becoming more and more popular and a recent study by Lunette showed that 95% of their customers were satisfied with their cup. And 88% agreed that using a menstrual cup contributed to better quality of life during menstruation.

1

Save money

For those of you with thinner wallets or just a frugal mindset, the menstrual cup is a money saver.

The average menstruator spends 1000 SEK per year on disposable pads and tampons.

One menstrual cup costs between 200 and 300 SEK and can be used for several years.

2

It’s better for the environment

Do you want to help reduce landfill waste and ease up on the world’s resources?

Almost five million menstrual hygiene products are disposed each year in Sweden alone.

The same menstrual cup can be used for several years.

Not to mention that the medical grade silicone used in most menstrual cups today is an extremely green material.

3

Reduce dryness and irritation

Do you experience pain and chafing when taking out a dry tampon?

Tampons can dry out and irritate your vaginal canal.

This can lead to bacterial or yeast infections.

Dryness and irritation can be avoided by switching to a menstrual cup.

4

No need to worry about chemicals and toxins

Tampons can contain less than ideal ingredients depending on brand and type of cotton.

A report from 2018 by Kemikalieinspektionen revealed that there is no reason to worry about chemicals in menstrual cups.

The investigation was ordered by the government, so a more in-depth and unbiased report would be hard to find.

5

One menstrual product is enough

You only need one menstrual product.

A menstrual cup.

No matter how much you bleed.

The days of stuffing your purse full of panty liners, pads and tampons are behind you.

6

You can carry on life as usual

Play soccer, lift weights, do yoga, ride a bike, ride a horse, sleep with it, do any type of sport.

You can even bathe and swim while using a menstrual cup.

And best of all, avoid a dangling tampon string from your bikini 😆.

7

It is smooth and practical

A menstrual cup holds way more than a tampon, and therefore you don’t need to deal with it as often.

It only needs to be emptied 2-4 times per 24 hours.

That means you can forget about it for up to 12 hours depending on its size and your flow.

8

It’s hygienic

Tampons can leave fluff behind in your vagina.

This can lead to creating a bacterial-friendly environment, which can cause an infection.

Menstrual cups don’t leave behind fibres like tampons do.

Plus you don’t have to grab onto a gross wet tampon string.

9

Works for all types of vaginas and flows

There are over 100 different menstrual cup brands out there.

They come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

They can hold from a few milliliters to 40+ ml.

So there’s guaranteed to be one for you.

You’ll sleep better

Since menstrual cups hold more than tampons, you can let it be all night without having to think about changing it every four hours.

11

They’re perfect for traveling

It’s annoying to change tampons, especially when you’re out traveling.

Since a menstrual cup can be used for up to 12 hours without changing, they’re the perfect travel companion.

It’s also perfectly fine to swim in the ocean or the pool with it in.

Menstrual cups are a work of art

As a unique and revolutionary work of timeless design, what’s not to like about this beautiful thing?
