My mom, sister, and limited friends who I've told are like absolutely disgusted by the idea of using a menstrual cup or cloth pads! I don't know how to present these two methods of menstrual leakage protection to them in a way that does not gross them out. I want them to support my decisions to be eco-friendly. Ever since my IUD and coming across these communities I've become more open to the idea of other forms of period protection and I think it's great! However everyone around me doesn't seem to think so. My boyfriend's jaw just dropped and freaked out saying "WHAT IS THAT?!?!?!?!?!" when I told him I was getting a menstrual cup. Quite funny, but he's a guy. It just really hurts that my family and friends don't even like the idea.
What should I do to tell them it's not a bad thing?
