Why you should give menstrual cup one more chance ?

Here is what our doctor says about the benefits of menstrual cup

A menstrual cup or a period cup is a small, flexible funnel-shaped cup made of rubber or silicone, designed to insert into your vagina during your period to collect blood, instead of absorbing the blood like a napkin or a tampon.

The menstrual cup is a reusable feminine hygiene product that can hold more blood than other methods. This makes them an eco-friendly alternative to pads or tampons. Depending on your flow, you could wear a cup for 6 to 12 hours or for overnight protection, and remove your menstrual cup and empty it when it becomes full, to avoid leaks.

A menstrual cup comes in varying sizes and must be chosen carefully
