26 Things Nobody Will Tell You About Using A Menstrual Cup


Okay, it’s time for those days of the month. Your menstrual cycle is coming and all you can think of is getting a Sundae or eating a double Ceasar salad. At the end of the day, you start crying over a spilt glass of water and your partner eventually cancels your date. Can anything be worse? Yes, you could try to change your thinking onto something positive, but, let’s be honest, doing that on these days is basically impossible. Here are some comics that will make you feel better about your menstrual cycle, but while we are at it, have you tried those menstrual cups?

According to Wikipedia, a menstrual cup is “a type of feminine hygiene product which is made of flexible usually medical grade silicone, worn inside the vagina to catch menstrual fluid”.

But are girls really using this? Here are some things that you should definitely know before trying this product out. A 25-year old girl named Aery shares her experience with you.

If tampons make you kind of uncomfortable, maybe it’s not the time for you yet.

The cup has many wonderful benefits, but clean hands are not one of them. You need to be prepared for that.
