Menstrual Cups… it’s healthier, safer, affordable, and better for the planet. I mean, can it get any better than that? Yet, so many of us are hesitant and even scared of this seemingly-odd, bell-shaped cup. So let’s break it down, even the bloodiest of all questions. Ready to spill the tea...cup?
Q1. Does it hurt to wear a cup?
If worn properly, a menstrual cup will not feel uncomfortable at all. In fact, most women even forget that have it in, just like tampons. However, as with anything that involves going in… there’s always a learning curve. Here are a few things to look out for:
1⃣ Inserting: For easy ins, always remember to point the cup back and down towards your tailbone and not up towards the sky. This ensures a perfect fit right under the cervix making sure there is no uncomfortable feeling.
2⃣ Removal: For easy outs, be sure to squeeze in the sides to break the suction seal first. Then pull it. If you just pull, the suction will cause pain and discomfort.
3⃣ Size: Sometimes if you use a cup that’s too big or too stiff for you, you may have cramp-like symptoms. If that sounds like you switch to our smaller, softer cup.
