Menstrual cups are definitely shining in the spotlight these days. Menstrual cups have been around for years but now they’re being used more than ever – and for good reason too. Menstrual cups are safely crafted of medicinal quality silicone and easy to use. Plus they may be used over and over for several years which makes them much more ecofriendly and cost effective than tampons or menstrual pads.
Having a hard time figuring out which menstrual cup is right for you?
Check out YouTube! There are tons of YouTube vloggers out there with tons of reviews available to help you pick the cup that is right for you. Don't take the advice from only one vlogger - make sure to check out multiple reviews and comparisons, and keep in mind what works great for one person might not work well for another - every body is different.
