I have noticed that my period lasted longer with the menstrual cup. When I turned forty I started to worry that I was starting to get peri-menopausal because my periods were getting so short, only about three to four days. I have noticed that when using a menstrual cup my period was four days long with spotting on days five and six. I'm thinking it's because the tampon was absorbing everything and drying me out. I would rather have a longer and healthier period with the menstrual cup and the cloth pads for backup that I plan on using from now on.
Has anyone else noticed that menstrual cups changed their period?
