NEW Research has found that women spend as much as £18,450 on their periods over the course of their lifetime. This is an absurd amount of money which can be drastically reduced by using reusable, environmentally friendly and leak-free menstrual cups. On average women spend a minimum of around £12 a month on period pad, tampons and new underwear (from leakages). The menstrual cup costs £20 which is less than 2 months of standard non-reusable period expenses and will last 10 years! Thats a huge saving of at least £1,440!
Always start by washing your hands. Fold the menstrual cup using a fold that works best for you. Many start with the C-fold (as shown in the picture).If that doesn’t work for you, try some of the other folds to make insertion easier. Every menstruator’s anatomy is unique, so find the fold that works for you.
As with tampons, gently insert the folded cup into your vagina, tilting it back to the base of your spine. The cup should sit as low as it can comfortably sit inside your vagina, normally lower than a tampon but with the stem fully inside.
When the cup is inside, it will pop open, creating a light suction. The suction is how the cup prevents leaks, so use your finger to check if it is fully unfolded. Twist or rotate the cup if you need to.
With clean hands, gently pull the stem of the cup downwards until you can reach and grip the base of the cup. Pinch the base to release the suction and take it out gently.
