Menstrual Cups 101-A Companion for New Women

Introduction

Using a menstrual cup is a great way to save money and reduce waste. The average woman spends Rs.1,44,000   on period products in her lifetime, so switching to a reusable menstrual cup can save you big bucks in the long run. On top of that, using less waste by using a menstrual cup can be another step toward helping the environment. It's important to remember that it’s normal for your body to produce blood and shed your uterine lining once a month if you have ovaries and a uterus. Here's everything you need to know about using menstrual cups.

What are menstrual cups?

What is a menstrual cup?

A menstrual cup is a flexible silicon or rubber-lined cup that you insert into your vagina during your period to catch the blood. Unlike tampons, the cup collects the blood rather than absorbing it.

How do I use a menstrual cup?

To insert: Fold the cup in half and gently slide it into your vagina until it sits comfortably at the opening of your cervix (the top of your uterus). To remove: Grip either side of the stem and pull down gently until you can reach inside and grip onto one side of the rim; this will help guide it out. If you're having trouble removing it, try running warm water over yourself for a few seconds first—this makes everything more slippery! Cleaning: Thoroughly wash with soap and water once per day throughout your cycle; sterilize between cycles by boiling or using hydrogen peroxide if necessary. Do not use oil-based lubricants with cups because they can degrade them! Storing: Store in its case when not in use; keep out of direct sunlight to avoid discoloration over time

Typically, a menstrual cup is made from silicone or latex rubber.

Your menstrual cup should be made from one of these two materials, as they are the most comfortable, durable and eco-friendly. Latex rubber is also used in some cups.

Silicone cups have been around since the 1930s and are now considered to be the standard material for menstrual cups. They're softer than latex and more flexible than TPE (thermoplastic elastomer), another common alternative to silicone that has been used since 2000 when it was introduced by Yuuki America Inc., a Japanese company known for its high quality menstrual products.

Menstrual cups are reusable.

You may have heard that menstrual cups are reusable. That means you can use them again and again, which is good news for your wallet and the environment!

The average woman spends between Rs.3000 and Rs.4000  per year on tampons or pads. Menstrual cups are more cost-effective, because they can last for up to 10 years (depending on how often you use it). In addition to saving you money on period products over time, using a menstrual cup also reduces your carbon footprint—the amount of carbon dioxide emissions associated with manufacturing new products versus reusing an existing one. Plus, there’s no waste from packaging like there is with disposable tampons and pads. For these reasons and others we’ll get into below, using a best menstrual cup saves the world from some serious damage!

Menstrual cups can be worn for up to 12 hours at a time.

Menstrual cups are designed to be worn for up to 12 hours at a time. Some women prefer to wear their cup for shorter periods of time, while others find it more convenient and comfortable to wear their cup throughout the day and night. This is why you'll find menstrual cups that come in different sizes, ranging from small (15 ml) all the way up to large/super-size (40 ml).

If you're new to using a period cup, we recommend starting with one of our smaller models—you can always upgrade in size later if necessary!

A cup might be more environmentally friendly than tampons or pads.

A menstrual cup is an eco-friendly alternative to tampons and pads, which can be flushed down the toilet. A reusable cup is made from silicone or TPE (thermoplastic elastomer). It’s often made from medical grade silicone, so it doesn’t have any chemicals that could be irritating to your skin. A period cup is also typically a single piece of silicone – so there are no seams for germs or bacteria to hide out in!

Think about how much waste you throw away when you use tampons or pads for just one cycle! With reusable cups, there are no more disposable items clogging up landfills every month!

Using a cup may reduce cramps and other symptoms of your period.

  • Using a menstrual cup can reduce cramps and other symptoms of your period.
  • The menstrual cup can be worn for up to 12 hours at a time, so you'll have the freedom to attend work or school without having to worry about changing your product in between classes or meetings.
  • The cup reduces the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), which is a rare but serious illness caused by toxins produced by certain types of bacteria. The risk is also reduced because it doesn't come into contact with the vaginal walls like tampons do, making it less likely that bacteria will grow inside it as well.

Using a menstrual cup saves money in the long run.

I have done the math, and it is clear: a menstrual cup can save you money in the long run.

Let’s start with tampons. They cost Rs.300 per month. What if you use them for 10 years? That would mean spending Rs.36,000 on tampons over your lifetime.

Now let’s look at pads. Pads are more expensive than tampons, costing about Rs.200-Rs.250 per month for 10 years or so of usage (assuming one pad lasts two days). At that rate, it would cost around Rs.24,000-30,000 to use pads for 10 years.

However! With a menstrual cup—and using the Vaquita Cup brand as an example—you can expect to spend only around Rs.300 (menstrual cup price) over 5 years .So what does this mean? In just three months of using your Vaquita Period Cup instead of disposable products like tampons or pads, you save enough money to buy another three months worth of cups!

How to use a menstrual cup.

Here's how you can use a menstrual cup:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water before inserting the cup.
  • Wash the cup with soap and water, or wipe it with a clean cloth. Rinse thoroughly with hot water and shake off excess water so that there is no dripping when inserted.
  • Insert the cup firmly into your vagina; depending on the size of your body, you may need help from another person to insert it properly (or you can use a clear applicator that comes with some cups). Once inserted, consider whether it feels comfortable or not (if not, try again). Don't worry if this takes some practice! It's important to find one that fits well for you so that you don't feel pain or discomfort during wear time.

When should I replace my menstrual cup?

You should replace your cup every year or so. If the cup has a hole in it, replace it. If you notice an odor coming from your cup, replace it. (This is not normal.)

If your menstrual cup is discolored, replace it. (This can happen after using a cup for many years.)

You should also replace your menstrual cup if it's leaking, torn or otherwise damaged—but be sure that you're replacing the actual piece of silicone/rubber that you inserted into your vagina and not just buying an entirely new pack of lube!

The average woman spends Rs.1.44 Lakh on period products in her lifetime, so switching to a reusable menstrual cup can save you big bucks in the long run.

The average woman spends Rs.1.44 Lakh on period products in her lifetime. That's a lot of money—and it's a lot of waste! Swapping tampons and pads for menstrual cups will save you lots of cash in the long run.

The menstrual cup price is Rs250–Rs.300. This means that if you use a menstrual cup for one year, your total costs will be same as Rs250–Rs.300.

Conclusion

Menstrual cups are a healthy and eco-friendly option for period management. They can help you save money and, for some women, reduce period symptoms.

To find the best menstrual cup for you, consider your flow volume, how long it lasts and the material of your cup. Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns about using menstrual cups safely.

A menstrual cup is an eco-friendly reusable feminine hygiene product, which is usually made of silicone or rubber. It is used during menstruation to catch and collect the period blood. Unlike sanitary napkins and tampons, a period cup can hold more blood and is reusable. Anyone can purchase a menstrual cup online by browsing through the range of cups available on Vaquita.

Choosing the best menstrual cup for women requires considering factors such as, firmness and flexibility of the cup, length of cervix, capacity of the cup, period flow, and age. Menstrual cups available at Vaquita can be easily inserted and removed from the vagina. All you have to do is clean your hands, apply water/lubricant on the rim of the cup, fold the cup into half, and insert it into the vagina just below the cervix.

Once it is in, rotate the cup, and it will spring open creating an airtight seal to prevent leakage. Depending on the menstrual flow, a menstrual cup can be used for up to 12 hours. Menstrual cup price depends on size, type, and a few other factors. Once the menstrual cup is full, take it out carefully. Now empty the cup and sterilize it before reusing.
