If you need to exchange your traditional protection more than every third hour (need to change, not just changing because you go to the toilet) then we recommend this one. It is acutally one of the biggest cups on the market.
-You can't feel it when its inserted right. -Collects your period instead of absorbing it. -You can sleep with it in. -Doesn't leak when placed correctly. -Made of soft silicone for medical use. -You don't need either pads, tampons or panty liners.
-Usually only needs to be emptied 2-4 times per day. -You can swim, work out, sleep and do what ever you want to even on your period. -You don't need to bring a few extra, it's enough with ONE. -The MonthlyCup has a ball stem that doesn't need to be cut and therefore reduces the risk of chafing.
-Reusable for up to 5 years. -One menstrual cup replaces about 1,600 tampons and pads. -Doesn't release any harmful chemicals either at manufacutring or combustion. -During a lifetime you'll only need 7 menstrual cups in comparison with 12,000 tampons and pads.
Congratulations on your 3 year anniversary! I recently started using a menstrual cup and the only thing that I'm sad about is that I didn't start with this sooner. It's amazingly great in every way!
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.
I have only used it during one period so far and I'm sold! Don't need to think about it, so nice to go and do what one wants and to not constantly have to think about if you have tampons with you etc... I love my cup!
