Is It Good to Use a Menstrual Cup As an Alternative to Tampons?

Tampons and pads aren't the only options!
If you’re looking for pad and tampon alternatives, a menstrual cup, or period cup, is definitely worth a try.
Anyone who’s had their period for more than a few years knows that the options for women to deal with them aren’t all that great. 
You may be tired of the “diaper rash” you get from a pad. Or, perhaps you find tampons to be a little too uncomfortable.
And hey, maybe you’re just looking for a healthier, and more environmentally friendly option to combat that time of the month. 
Whatever your reason for seeking out tampon and pad alternatives, a menstrual cup, especially a super convenient collapsible one like the Lily Cup Compact, may be what you’re looking for.
If you’re not quite sold on the idea of a cup you wear inside you, let’s start off with a brief introduction to what a menstrual cup is and how it works.

I’ll then offer my newbie tips for buying and using a period cup, straight from personal experience!

Trust me, I was intimidated at first, but after a little education and trial and error, I doubt I’ll be going back to pads and tampons. Sure, there was a bit of a learning curve, but in the end, I found that using a menstrual cup was more comfortable, cleaner, and made me feel better about my environmental impact. 

What is a menstrual cup?

A menstrual cup is a reusable cup that takes the place of a tampon. It is typically made of silicone, shaped like a funnel, and is inserted into the vagina when a woman has her period
Sometimes called a period cup, this feminine hygiene product tends to hold more blood than other methods.
These cups are an eco-friendly alternative to tampons and pads, and will often last for up to 10  hours before needing to be changed. 
Popular brands like INTIMINA, offer a variety of menstrual cups for different needs and sizes. 

How does a menstrual cup work?

A menstrual cup works because of its funnel-like design and pliable, silicone material. Once inserted into the vagina, the cup collects and holds the blood, and is unlikely to leak. 
A period cup features a tip at the end so that users can remove it, empty the blood, and insert again.
