Did you know that there are tons of health benefits to using a menstrual cup? I know what you’re thinking… It’s not as scary as it seems! Once you try a menstrual cup, there’s no going back. Here are some benefits that might make you change your mind about cups.
Menstrual cups produce zero waste. The Viv Menstrual Cup is made to last up to 10 years with proper care and cleaning. The average menstruator uses between 5,000-15,000 tampons and pads in their lifetime. Each traditional pad takes around 800 years to break down. Since menstrual cups are reusable, reducing or eliminating the use of disposable menstrual products will make a big difference on your environmental impact.
2. Reduces the Risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome
Our toxin free menstrual cup collects blood, rather than absorbs it. The risk of developing Toxic Shock Syndrome is significantly reduced.
3. Save money $$$
Disposable menstrual products become very expensive over time. The average menstruator spends $1,773.33 on tampons in their lifetime, or $4,752 on pads. The Viv Menstrual Cup is $20 and will only cost about $80-$100 per menstruator’s lifetime.
4. Low Maintenance Throughout Your Busy Day
Your period doesn’t have to feel like an inconvenience to your daily life anymore. Menstrual cups can hold blood for up to 12 hours, whereas tampons and pads need to be changed once every 4-6 hours- What a difference!
5. More Comfortable Than Tampons and Pads
Many people find tampons and pads uncomfortable, since you’re wearing them for so long. When inserted properly and wearing the correct size, (check out what size to get here) you shouldn’t really feel your menstrual cup.
What do you think, will you make the switch to using menstrual cups?
