According to me, there's only advantages to not have to use tampons and pads. I convice all my female friends to try a menstraul cup cause it's simply the best!
It doesn't leak at night as pads do, it's cheap and environmentally friendly, but mainly that it doesn't dry out my mucus membranes and doesn't contain bleach and pesticides that I don't want anywhere near my uterus.
A small revolution is what the menstrual cup is. No purchases, no smell. Freedom to just be for a whole day, no waste, always available, no chafing, no itching. Simply the best!
