What are your favorite benefits of cups?
Instead of (US) $4-5 a month for disposables, which comes to about $50-60 a year, one $15-50-ish cup can last 5-10 years.
The average woman disposes of a large dump-truck full of disposable menstrual products and packaging in the years she has her period. One cup can last 5-10 years. Only one small package to throw away.
DISCREET AND CONVENIENT:
No more return trips with a fresh disposable product. No more taking your purse to the ladies room. No more smuggling a tampon. No more horrified panic that you hadn't replenished your supply of disposables. No need to carry a large supply of disposables if you're away from home for an extended period of time.
Most cups hold more than disposable products so they don't need to be attended to as often.

IRREGULAR CYCLES, PERI-MENOPAUSE AND BREAK-THROUGH BLEEDING:
Unlike tampons, menstrual cups can be worn in anticipation of a period or for on-and-off spotting.
Some use cups to catch their cervical mucus to monitor their fertility.
