Not long ago I wrote a whole blog post about the difference between Menstrual Cups and Tampons. The response I received from that post was overwhelming! It seems like everybody loves hearing about new and innovative ways to save money and stay hygienic. Menstrual cups are not only a safe and natural alternative to tampons, they're also extremely beneficial for the environment and will save you so much money each year! If you're curious or need a little more convincing, here are my top 10 reasons why you need you need to try menstrual cups!
1. You'll save big bucks!
One of my absolute favourite reasons why I love menstrual cups is that they save you SO much money each year. Throwaway feminine hygiene products are so expensive, whereas menstrual cups are reusable. Using a menstrual cup can save you roughly $4000 over your lifetime! Think of all the things you could buy with those savings!
2. You'll be saving the environment!
Consider how many tampons and pads you throw away each year. If all women used a menstrual cup, we would be saving an estimated 10,000 feminine hygiene products from entering our waterways and landfill. That's incredible!
3. They're so convenient!
By using a menstrual cup, you won't have to worry about running out of tampons and pads. You'll never have to rush off to the shops again! They're also a convenient size to keep in your handbag and take travelling.
4. You can sleep wearing it!
Another fantastic benefit of using a menstrual cup is that you can even wear it even while you sleep. You won't have to think twice about remembering to remove your tampon or using a pad! As you won't feel any discomfort, you can have a relaxed and restful night's sleep.
5. You can wear it while exercising!
Menstrual cups can also be worn while exercising. It's the perfect inclusion to your day to day lifestyle. Whether you're running errands or running laps, your menstrual cup will stay put!
6. You won't experience leakage!
This is a real lifesaver! As menstrual cups don't contain wings or strings, you can go about your day without thinking twice about leakage. You don't have to worry about wearing white pants while on your period ever again.
7. They're made without harmful substances!
In mainstream feminine hygiene products, it's not uncommon to find harmful substances such as chlorine and fragrances. Although here on Nourished Life we sell Certified Organic tampons that are free from all of these nasties, menstrual cups also do not contain harmful chemicals. They're made of medical grade silicone!
8. It doesn't have a string!
Another benefit of using a menstrual cup is that they don't use a string. There's nothing more uncomfortable or unhygienic than going to the toilet and accidentally wetting your tampon string!
9. They're so easy to use!
Menstrual cups may take a little getting used to, but they are so easy to use! Simply twist into a C or S shape, insert and check that it is sealed. Voila!
