Did you know, the average woman uses 11,000 individual sanitary products in her lifetime. Not only is this bad for the landfill sites which are filled with sanitary waste, it's also bad for your bank account. Reusable menstrual cups are a fantastic alternative. Made from body-friendly, BPA free, medical grade silicone. The menstrual cup is flexible and when inserted, it forms a gentle seal with your vaginal wall to contain and collect your flow. You can then pour the liquid down the loo and give the cup a quick clean before reusing it. The menstrual cup holds 30ml of liquid; that's three times more than tampons, and since it collects liquid rather than absorbing it you can wear it for up to 12 hours without any risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome. Buy two and keep one at home and one in your handbag, and you'll never have to worry about being caught short without a tampon or sanitary towel again.
1 set includes one large and one small cup, in a handy little bamboo cotton travel bag.
See photos for instructions for use.
The menstrual cup is a around two inches long and made from soft medical grade silicone.
It is worn internally a lot lower than a tampon but, while tampons and pads absorb menstrual fluid, collects it.
