A couple of years ago I met the menstrual cup.
Then I thought, “What? They’re crazy! What’s that stupid things?”
Then as I met the “Zero Waste” more and more, I also met the Reusable pads and others.
I was wondering what it was, if it was something of an epoch-making solution? ?
As I began to pay more attention to myself and my health and the environment, I found a YouTube channel.
This is not advertising, it’s just a recommendation!
This is Hormonmentes (hormone-free) from Janka.
This is a Hungarian YouTube channel, but if you know English channel in the same topic, please let me know in the comment section.❤
Janka Talking about “taboos” that shouldn’t be taboo, so I just loved it!
You send me an English YouTube channel about this topic, so the video is here:
I don’t want to describe the way it works, nor to say that it’s good and everyone needs it.
Watch the video if you are interested.
I would just like to tell you what experiences I have about this.
So after a lot of thinking and watching, I decided to try it out.
I counted one: In a month with a package insert.
Approximately: One month = a pack of menstrual pads.
One pack is about 2-3 EUR
This is 24-36 EUR in a year (or more)
So one menstrual cup = 1 year menstrual pads
But you can use it for years.
I counted, thought and bought it…
I’ve been looking at it for a while, because It was still a little bizarre for me.
Now I would like to tell you about the first two days of experience.
I’m a little shy, but I think that women have to talk about it (with other women).?
The disinfection step went easily.
Because disinfection is most important.
Before every use!
The first day was very skeptical and cautious
so I used a menstrual pad too.
But the surprising experience was that it worked perfectly for 12 hours.
The placement was not easy at first.
First I was thinking, How this thing works? What and how should I?
But then I managed to do it.
Ladies who regularly use tampons: this is a big advantage!
The second day has gone easier insertion,
better to say, less …. uncomfortable.
And the “take-off” was surprisingly easy.
I’m not going to explain why, but first try to take off in the shower!
I’m over the second day.
No leaks, airtight, not uncomfortable.?
I finished the day off with a great feeling.
No taboo from today!
No longer have to miss the wellness, no missed swimming pool!
I can go on any tour on the “period” days too!?
But the most important thing!
All women have experienced in their life (or will be),
that it is not a matter the routine.
The rush of life, the “just one more question” on the way to the WC, or for whatever reason, the blood was everywhere…
(And if you have no luck, of course in a white dress, etc.)
I think this is a familiar problem that I don’t have to explain.
Not only am I happy, but I also feel an uplifting plus freedom!
Funny, but after this two days I just don’t understand why I haven’t found it so far, or why I haven’t used it before.
