Some women prefer menstrual cups because they are a tampon alternative that can be safely worn up to 12 hours. One study found that women had to change the cup, on average, 2.8 times less frequently than when using tampons or pads, and that it leaked 0.5 times less often. If your flow is heavy, you may want to consider menstrual cups instead of using several pads as cups collect up to 30 ml of period blood.

If you are travelling and will not be able to change easily, a tampon or a menstrual cup may serve you better than pads. Plus, today you can find reusable cups, washable pads, and period-proof panties, among other things. Here’s a look at all the pros and cons of the most popular menstrual products. Tampons still.

Women have to change menstrual cups less often than tampons and pads. That’s because the cup can hold up to 30ml of blood. The average woman drains about 40-60ml of period blood each cycle. Non-messy sex during period; As menstrual cups directly collect period blood, there is no blood in the first few inches of your vagina.

Pads come in a range of sizes for your unique shape and flow. Pick the size best for you based on panty size and when you’re wearing it – day or night. Don’t know your size, use the Always MyFit Quiz to find out. Tampons.

Tampons come in five sizes to help give you great protection on your heaviest days and comfort on your lightest. *Price depends on brand. Generally, pantiliners are cheaper per unit, pads and tampons are comparable, and menstrual cups cost more, however most are reusable and only a one-time cost. **This means you cannot put in a tampon when you are expecting your period and haven’t started bleeding yet.

This is because there is nothing to absorb. You might even find you prefer to use menstrual cups, period underwear, or pads instead of tampons altogether. Jen Anderson is a wellness contributor at Healthline. The small, flexible cup is made of silicone or latex rubber. Instead of absorbing your flow, like a tampon or pad, it catches and collects it.

Just before your period begins, tightly fold the. You want to know that you are buying the right cup for you, and to be honest, it’s not a perfect science – but you can make an educated guess. Chances are, you’ll love your cup! When I was first considering a cup, I chose based on the only cup that I had heard of – The Diva Cup. The two types of menstrual cups are specially created to collect menstrual fluid instead of absorbing it—for later disposal.

Some ladies prefer to use menstrual cups because of their ability to stay in place and because they are an alternative to tampons that can be worn safely for up to 12 hours without fear of leaks or TSS.. One study revealed that women had to change the menstrual cup, at.

  • THEM JUNKS HURT. IT CLOGS U UP TOO. ���� got them because they were cheap and I was broke….I hate it and I took it out but it still hurt.

  • I cannot say how much I love my menstrual cup…… It’s my savior…. I hate using pads now….. Pads cause so much leakage for me, I had really bad sleep with pads…. Now with menstrual cup i sleep like a baby…. U just need couple of months to get used to it.

  • Wow mye o oil ata h wo hume use kar k clean kar sakte hai yh ni mye kuch videos mye dekhi hun ki wow cup mye Jo oil ata h usse use Karna sehi ni plz ans mye

  • Thank u america for giving us such a beautiful thing for ous because they r the first nation who establish women right in the world

  • WHAAAT waait.. I am 16 and I just heard rn about tampons!!!!! For my entire life I am usin pads….. doesn’t it hurt you (the tampons)

  • Good video i prefer to use maxipads.when i have a maxipad in my panties i feel femmine sexy and dry take care love y’all ladies.����

  • Menstrual cups were invented in the 1930s and only have two linked cases of tss. Also, most menstrual cups create a vacuum which means that there is a lot less air that is introduced. Menstrual cups are FDA regulated and I think if they were really that bad they would have been taken off the market a long time ago especially with how strictly they are regulated.

  • Can someone please help me. I’m 15 and I am using the diva cup. I am pretty sure it’s in right because it slides right in and feels like it in right but I got the diva cup size one. Is that size too big for me? Because it’s uncomfortable and I can feel it and when I walk sometimes it hurts. What do you think is the problem?

  • Kya Koi Mujhe please bataega ki insert karne mein Kitna Dard Hota Hai Ek virgin girl ko… aur kya comfortable tarike se baith sakta hai….. aur gym kar sakte hain please koi bhi virgin girl.ya teen chije Mujhe bataiye……

  • Menstrual cups are life changing. Take all the time in the world, but switch to it girls! Esp. heavy flow buddies, you won’t regret it ever..

  • Happy to see people talking about periods openly too. It’s a massive help. Thank you for sharing. Hopefully this will help others make the right choice for them.

  • I know it’s more expensive but if you can, PLEASE use organic tampons and check the box to make sure it doesn’t have “fragrance” a lot of cheap tampon brands have been found to have traces of pesticides and carcinogens in them. Look it up please, and while your at it, look up fragrance laws. Companies can put whatever toxins they want in products, and they don’t have to disclose it. There’s a documentary about it called “Stink!”on Netflix.

  • This is top level cringe… you got younger dude here all like, “Are these even appropriate?” Old boomer, “Blah blah blah millennials,” and then the woman who is the only voice of reason (to an extent) I hate using tampons now, they’re disgusting, and pads feel like diapers. I’ll keep my cup, thanks.

  • I discussed this with my doctor and she is defence doctor because i am from defence background. So, I discussed this with her and told her that i am using mensural cups. Her reaction was surprising. She asked me not to use because in India we don’t have that much hygiene may be in western countries but in India it’s quite a challenge. We don’t have that environment. She suggested to use occasionally but not for daily basis. Also she explained that can see our menses and make a tract of it if we have good healthy menses, Blood flow, blood clots etc. Agr koi b changes honge vo hum dekh sakte h aur doc ko consult kr sakte h mensural cups se hum ye sub track nhi kr sakte. After that i am confused now. I am using mensural cups from past 1.5 years and want to continue but now confused.

  • Sepsis shock can occur with anything left in your body long enough to breed bacteria..
    Pads, tampons, cups, women use whatever is comfortable to them..
    personally.. I’m wary of inserting anything inside me..during my periods.. so sanitary napkins it is.. I just use them wisely, I have different sizes for different days..

  • Wait, these are supposed to be doctors? Like, in Medical Professionals? And they’re bashing a product that’s environmentally friendly AND completely safe when following the instructions?
    Man, they better be getting a lot of money for this one.

  • Awesome….thanks for sharing this perspective….the idea of bleeding freely does seem more natural, and hence comfortable, to me. I guess each body has a different perspective. But I definitely found this useful. How many cloth pads does one need to get through a typical 5 day cycle with 2 days of heavy flow?

  • The two people who got TSS from cups left it in for multiple days without taking it out causing TSS and TSS drops down a lot when you are talking about cups because if you use it correctly and put it in for 12 hours and take it out after you probably wont get it. These people are trying to make these cups seem bad and that they are the same as tampons except they are more expensive and you re use them which is gross hearing how the audience reacted

    Try Ayurdays or femi cool sanitary pads with ayurvedic herbs
    Feel the difference
    I can send you free samples.

  • #skillsapiens i am using menstrual cup from january 2017.and everyone should use it.but i change it every year,also it takes 5 to 30 seconds maximum only to insert and put inside.girls pls use menstual cup.use 12 hours then wash with dettol soap twice use again.and i do not feel that i have something inside.my 365 days of year i feel the same.no need of wearing panty even if you like.go swimming.

  • Don’t use any thing in side vagina,
    .these r foreign bodies put for long time,cause iritation,collected blood clotts n smell n you wash the device with toilet water.closes the vaginal Canal which is for normal flow of blood made by nature..can introduce infection from fingers while inserting.use any no of pads,it gives comforts n do not dilate n loosen or cause allergyv in the vagina in long time.dont copy or rush after any thing.n follow blindly.pads r more hygienic superior n time tested young ladies.hope u understood.

  • The thing about tampons and pads being free, is kinda dumb, if you want something you gotta pay for it. This is coming from a girl. It costs money to make things, tampons and pads included, so those companies need to get their money from somewhere so they can keep making those things. If we stop paying for them then the company has nothing to go off of….

  • They missed some cons of cloth pads….they should be washed correctly……and we do have bio degradable cotton pads……for women who are not married…..because cups are not that comfortable for them…nor the tampons…..taking out is great pain

  • I say these are safer because they have less surface area, don’t affect the natural PH, don’t dry it out leaving the tissues prone to scratches/tears, and they can be sterilized before and after every use. Any product can become dangerous if not used and cleaned correctly. It’s a fact of life, but lets be real here that compared to the early years of tampons the cups have a stellar record.

  • A very good thought of all bringing out this video. Everyone has their own comfort in their own way. But I too agree that menstrual cups are very comfort in using as it may be some confusion in starting days but its awesome.

  • Hello… Mjhe kuch puchna h.. I never used it. I will try after watching ur helpful video. I have ques related to tha size. I’m a sports person do swimming running and many more games i play. So can u pls suggest m which size is perfect for m.. My age is 25 and unmarried.

  • there have been only a few cases of tss with cups. And the people who got it left their cups in for DAYS. its sooo much less common than tampons

  • They are dangerous unfortunately and I stopped immediately with it after consulting my gynecologist.
    Tampons are safer because you change them every few hours.
    It’s not healthy to carry staphylococcus 12 hours a day in a menstrual cup inside of you.

  • You guys haven’t covered whole range of products in this video..looks like unprepared video with half the content and incomplete info(esp. That chick did not mention about sterilizing the cup and other things..) what about thinx underwear, period panty, biodegradable pads, basic cotton pads..it’s like each girl wants to interrupt in between…can do much better

  • Pads are safe, no washing or cleaning. With Cups you have to clean every use and tampons you can forget, and during periods forgetting is so common.

  • Menstral cup is the best option..
    Easy to handle. No discomfort.
    No Leakage (if insert properly)
    No side affects (others causes side affects). No odour (collected blood has no smell ). Chemicals are not used in cups. We Can do everything even swimming
    I recommend menstrual cups…

  • Tampons stop blood everywhere especially laying down so I’ll use pads and tampons when I lay down the blood always running up my panties I hate that

  • Hey Komal mam. U make really good and helpful videos and Ur DIYs are great.
    I wanted to ask u that I looked for this menstrual cup product on Amazon and in details it showed that the product expires in 2022 but u said that we can use it for atleast 10yrs but the product shelf life is 2 years in details. So what should I do?

  • to all the other girls complaining about periods here are tips to avoid excessive blood flow exposed stains and cramps:
    don’t wear light colored skirts or pants
    don’t eat ice-cream
    always drink warm beverages
    turn off the AC

    always take painkillers (but do NOT overdose!)

  • Period poverty then they use toiletpaper or rags. In undeveloped countries most common or people who have not enough money to buy this meterials such as sanitary pads or tampons. Dir instance homeless women and refugees undocumeted asuliumseekers and some one who had not enough money to buy this. It is nor a luxuryproduct. Every woman needs it and it is a humanright to get acces to this as sanitairypads and tampons. Policitians are mostly men en and think they don”t care because they don”t have to use this as tampons and sanitarypads….
