Hello everyone, I have a question that may seem silly. But in light of the recent posts...


So I've been seeing some posts around lately that are encouraging us to suggest cups to our mothers, and I guess I just couldn't really think of anywhere else to ask this. My mother had to have a hysterectomy when my younger brother was born. I was just wondering if anyone thought that a cup would be of any use to while she goes through menopause. I know she obviously doesn't have periods anymore so she can't use a cup for that (which is the intended purpose of a cup), but I don't have periods often either because of the IUD I have. I still find my self using my cup sometimes to catch other annoying secretions and I thought maybe she could use it for that if that. She knows about mine and she thinks it's a pretty cool idea.

Unfortunately I have no idea what menopause entails for women with hysterectomies or how that might figure into cups. I just don't want my mom to be left out if a cup could change her life in the way it has changed mine. I have no idea where else I could possibly gain any insight on this. I know that there are some older, wiser women on here who might be able to help me out. 

Should I maybe try to talk to her about cups? Would they still help her in any way or is it better left alone?
