I can't remember when exactly I learnt about menstrual cups but it was about a year or so ago and yeah, I got to know about it from the internet. So if you just heard or are just hearing the words "MENSTRUAL CUPS", keep reading cause I'm going to be explaining what they are, what they do and everything in between.

What Are Menstrual Cups?

A menstrual cup is one of the options for women to collect blood and protect themselves during their periods after pads and tampons. It is a funnel-shaped cup usually made of rubber or silicone. Some are reusable while others are disposable.  Pads and tampons usually absorb the flow while menstrual cups when inserted into the vagina, catches and collects the blood inside the cup and when full, can be removed and emptied. It can be worn for up to 12 hours straight depending on your flow but shouldn't exceed 12 hours. From the research I have done, a lot of women who have given menstrual cups a chance have never regretted it. Most women have sworn never to go back to using pads or tampons again ( Looking forward to my own experience and how I would feel afterwards ).

Why Menstrual Cups?

MENSTRUAL CUPS are more economical, you can buy one and use for  6 months to years depending on how you care for it and save up on our periodic buying of pads and tampons. It's also more Eco-friendly. I know your main concern right now is how do I insert and remove it easily without pain or anything crazy happening, those were my exact thoughts too before I got my very own menstrual cup from Jumia which I'm excited to try during my next period and share with you guys my experience and also give you all the practical tips, tricks and tea.
