Is the Period Cup Worth all the Hype?

Disclaimer: Gents, as if you didn’t already know (because of the title), this blog is all about periods. So keep scrolling and find another one of my blog posts that will not gross you out. You’re welcome.

I had no idea what a period cup was until I heard it talked about on a TV show several months ago. I was clueless but it sparked my attention so I decided to research it. According to my research, it is the next best product on the market compared to tampons. And don’t feel bad if you have never heard of the period cup. I recently went on a bachelorette trip with 6 other women and I was the only one who knew what it was.

For those of you who are not familiar with the period cup, it is a silicone cup that you fold and is inserted during your period that holds your blood. You use it instead of a tampon and it is more cost effective and eco friendly than tampons. If you are grossed out by this idea, let me assure you, if you can use a tampon, then you can use a period cup. It can be worn for up to 12 hours and overnight, so it is much safer than a tampon. Once finished with it, the blood is poured into the toilet and you wash it.

I was unsure if I would like it at first because I could feel it the first 2-3 times I wore it (much like it is when using a tampon for the first time), but after I was comfortable with inserting it the right way, I liked it much better than a tampon. The reason I like it more is because of being able to wear it for up to 12 hours and I can wear it overnight without worrying about Toxic Shock Syndrome. Also, even when I am having a heavy week, I still never leak. Since using it, I have only filled the cup once and that was after wearing it for over 8 hours.

I chose the Diva Cup but I am not promoting one specific brand. I did quite a bit of research on several different brands before purchasing the one I have and the Diva Cup had the most positive reviews. Some of the women I have talked to about it mentioned that they were worried about the right sizing. It is very simple to choose the right size. You chose based on if you have had children and your age. It is that easy!

I honestly never want to go back to a tampon after using the period cup. I worry less about leakage, it’s comfortable, and I have no concern about inserting chemicals into my body. You would be surprised at the amount of chemicals that are in tampons. Plus, it is eco friendly! If you try the period cup and have questions or want to share your experience, please leave me a message in my contact box. I hope yours is as positive as mine!

My skincare routine used to be completely horrifying. I would never wear moisturizer & I used cleansers I found at the drugstore! It wasn’t until I started using one particular product that my skin started looking great. I can actually go out in public without makeup on now & feel confident. I could never do that before! ⁣
