Let's talk about menstruation:
What a beautiful gift to be a woman! Yes all the same, but each month the fateful moment returns: the menstruation. Let me tell you about my version of livable menstruation. When I say livable, it's because I actually think we all live differently, depending on the relationship we have with our body. Me, if I had been told 10 years ago that one day I would discover the miracle tool, I would not have believed it. But, I really want to mention that each person experiences this moment in a different way and I am only sharing my reality.
The menstrual cup! Did you know it dates from 1867? (Clearly not the same models as today) but, even so, the idea is not recent. In the 1950 years, this is where the tampons are invented and it is at this moment that the solution of the menstrual cup takes a little edge. It is true that in those years the concept of ecology was not the subject of the day. Over time we ended up no longer hear about the cup, until there is no year when the cup remakes appearance.
The positive points of using the CUP:
- I personally find that it is less trouble. Besides that, contains a lot.
- Another reason that convinced me to change to the cup is that the pads are filled with chlorine, have been bleached and in addition release dioxin into your body. So that's for sure that it's the job, but when you think about all the toxicity that tampons contain, you change your mind quickly enough.
- Another reason that my liver should be a priority for every woman is that tampons and towels are thrown away, you already knew, but do you know how important it is to global pollution?
I do not need to do a lot of research on the internet to find a ton of articles on the subject. We went to 2019 and I think it is important to change our habits and educate our neighbors on the use and tools related to menstruation.
- It is discreet, easy to carry. No need to have 10 tampons in your bag and always think of having on hand.
- There is no smell. This too is an important point, I will not go into detail in the subject, but really you know what I'm talking about.
- We are talking about 10 years of use.
- The cost of single-use pads / tampons: It starts to cost a lot when you have to budget an amount for all this (I'm hardly exaggerating) with the cup we're talking about $ 40 once .
I actually have a list full of good reasons for anyone to use a cup and yes I will meet people who will tell me: how do you do in public toilets? It's really not hygienic blah blah. But me, that's my opinion and there are also other green options available to you such as the towel or even washable panties! Just educate yourself and find what works with YOU and your lifestyle.
