Benefits of the Menstrual Cup

Many women hate that time of the month because tampons and pads can be extremely uncomfortable. Now there’s the menstrual cup, which is exactly as it sounds. It’s a cup made of medical grade silicone that is shaped like a bell and it’s flexible. It’s worn inside the vagina during the time of the month to catch menstrual fluid and you can wear it day and night.
