Menstrual cups vs. tampons - Some really bloody facts




You might be already quite familiar with tampons, and you might have been using quite a few along the years. But how do menstrual cups compare to tampons and why would you choose one in favour of the other? 
 
Are tampons uncomfortable for you?
So many women feel this way. As tampons absorb the menstrual flow, they expand, triggering discomfort. Given the absorption propriety, tampons often cause vaginal dryness, making the insertion of the subsequent tampons even more difficult. 
 
If you have not used menstrual cups before, you might be surprised to hear that menstrual cups are the definition of true comfort during menstruation and once you've inserted your cup, you will not feel it's there. The cup fits snugly, it doesn't cause any pressure, and it doesn't expand (as tampons do as they are designed to absorb the menstrual flow). Additionally, you won't need to remove your cup when going to the toilet, and you can wear it for as long as 12 consecutive hours, during the day or night. 
 
Not only that they are good for you, but menstrual cups are also good for the environment as they are reusable for up to long years. Wear, rinse, repeat. Finally, your period can be factually zero-waste.
