A Menstrual Cup

Menstrual cups were a cornerstone swap for me. I consider cornerstone  swaps to be the ones that just revolutionize everything, the ones where everything just falls into place. We will give you all the details on how to use a menstrual cup.

What Are  Menstrual Cups?

Soft menstrual cups, like Intimina’s, are made from 100% medical-grade silicone and are inserted into the vagina similar to a tampon. But, instead of absorbing blood like a tampon, they catch it!

There are several different folding methods, but one of the things I really like about Intimina’s Lily Cup is that it folds so small that it’s the same size as a tampon. You insert the folded cup into your vagina, then twist it slightly to allow it to unfold naturally.

removing a  menstrual cup

When it’s time to remove your menstrual cup, I like to kegel my cup down a bit and pinch the base. When you pinch the base of your cup, you’re able to break the suction and slide the cup out easily.

Everybody is different. Some people experience a little bit of leaking, like with a tampon, and others won’t. But, if the soft menstrual cup is placed correctly, you shouldn’t have any significant leaks. You need to make sure you have the right shape, style, or size of cup for your body.

can I use a cup if I don’t like tampons?

I really disliked using tampons. Something about them didn’t sit well  with my body chemistry, and I found them exceedingly uncomfortable. I didn’t have any of those discomforts with using a cup. A cup might not be for you if you are uncomfortable with the idea of inserting it.
