(if you’re a loser that’s scared of normal female bodily functions, don’t read.)
listen, peeps. i’ve started using a menstrual cup… and it’s changed my life! it’s been a little over 48 hours and i’ve already called and texted numerous gfs like some sort of crazed telemarketer.
but i am legit THAT excited. my juju cup cost $55. it is made out of medical grade silicone and comes in a handy little travel pouch. i can leave it in for up to 12 hours at a time and no longer worry about leaking or escapee tampon strings.
still need convincing? have a look at some of this information care of juju.com.au.
- if during your period, you use five disposable products a day for five days, this equates to 300 disposable pads or tampons a year and over 10,000 in your lifetime.
- in one year, you will spend an average of AU$90 on disposable products.
- by using a menstrual cup, you will help the environment by reducing landfill.
i will admit that using a cup requires some finesse and i read a pretty funny tweet that about the cavernous depths of the vagina when trying to remove it for the first time… but it gets easier and you can do it shower until you feel confident.
so, seriously, do yourself a favour and buy one. you can thank me later.
