Benefits of Menstrual Cups



What are your favorite benefits of cups?


COST:
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.

ENVIRONMENT:
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.

CAPACITY:
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.

CERVICAL MUCUS:
Some use cups to catch their cervical mucus to monitor their fertility.

BEST OF ALL:
The invaluable good advice and support from fellow List Members!
