Periods have been a taboo subject pretty much since day 1!!
Despite the fact that our menstrual cycle literally allows the majority of the female born population to have kids, some people would rather block out the idea of a totally natural
Thing that happens to us on a monthly basis!
Why is it when we get our period it’s like such a big secret!!! We tell nobody, we hide tampons/pads out of site and bury them in the trolley when we are shopping! When you are younger you are told to “hide” your sanitary products in a secret pocket in your bag! 🤷🏼♀️
Like we go through this every month! Why is is such a big secret? Why must the males never know!!! Why are we made to feel shameful about it?
Well I for one am not ashamed! Or afraid! Or hiding the fact I go through this every month! See this…it’s my menstrual cup 💁🏼♀️
It catches the lining of my uterus so i don’t have to use disposable tampons or pads! Saving me a small fortune each year!
Menstrual cups are made from medical grade silicone and is totally reusable! Most can be used for up to 10 years before needing to be replaced!
My cup is so convenient! During my period it’s always inside me, so I never forget or run out of tampons or need to make a mad dash to the loo cause I’ve no changed anything in 4-6 hours!
It took me 3-4 cycles to get used to inserting, taking out, flow and emptying of my cup but once you get the hang of it, it’s amazing!
Making the change from disposable sanitary products to a cup has been the best decision I made! What’s stopping you making the change?
