The pros and cons of using a menstrual cup

It is true.

The menstrual cup is the menstruation revolution. It is a device that allows you to take care of your body in a natural and healthy way while being in complete control of every situation. When thinking about a menstrual cup can easily come to your mind the long list of benefits that we could read on the internet or that influencers tell us on their blogs. However, not everything they tell might not be as good as expected when using the menstrual cup for the first time.


The pros of using a menstrual cup


Yes, the menstrual cup has a long list of benefits. For example, if the cup is made of 100% medical silicone, it will be free of toxic products that can develop organic disorders such as Toxic Shock Syndrome (which is highly related to tampons). In fact, those who change from pads and tampons to a menstrual cup usually explain that the experience is totally different, comfortable, and experience a period free of hot flashes or irritations in the genital area.

Another point in favor of the menstrual cup is that it adapts to the body (and not the other way around), which allows one to be in complete control of the different stages of the body. In the case of the Eureka!Cup, is the only menstrual cup with easy emptying; that is, the only one that has a tube that allows to empty the menstrual flow without removing it from the vagina. The use of menstrual cup is an hygienic care, careful with both the body and the lifestyle.

Finally, the menstrual cup is an economic and ecological investment in the long term. This is because, in reality, the consumption of pads and tampons has a significant impact on the environment and pockets. While a menstrual cup, like the Eureka!Cup, reduce your ecological footprint and save in the long term approximate 8 thousand euros in the almost 40 years of fertile life.


The not so good pros of using a menstrual cup


Let’s be honest. Unlike what show influencers who talk about their experiences with the menstrual cup, the reality is that everything will not be perfect the first time. This means that it takes practice to use it –including one, two, or three menstrual cycles. Your mind and your body need some time to learnd and to get used to the change.

Another good point but not so much –at least the way it does it– about the menstrual cup is that it forces you to know and be very aware of your body. The reality is that to know which is the ideal size for you, it is important to know the height of the cervix –which changes position throughout the cycle and sexual practices. There are times when not knowing it, a menstrual cup can “get stuck” between the vaginal walls, causing an uncomfortable visit to the emergency room or asking a friend –or sister– for help to remove it.

Finally, another pro but that can take a little bit of time to make the appropriate changes is the experience of sexuality. You can live eroticism fully, enjoying various practices such as self-eroticization or cunnilingus. It is highly recommended to remove the cup first before engaging in intercourse.

In conclusion, the menstrual cup experience it requires time to adapt, which can be facilitated by getting to know more and better your body.
