Long before we started selling the Diva Cup we were raving about it to everyone we met. Why? Reusable menstrual cups are better for your body, better for the environment, and they save you money. They also foster body literacy -when you realize how much you actually bleed during your period you'll likely be shocked! As a result, we often say that switching to the Diva Cup is one of the best things we ever did for ourselves.
Menstrual cups are becoming more mainstream (did you see this KickStarter? They have over 325,000 backers!), but there's still a lot of confusion around how they work and who can use them. That's why in today's episode of Red Tent Sisters TV we're answering the most common questions we get asked about menstrual cups, including:
- How you insert it
- Whether they're comfortable
- When they need to be replaced (some last for years while others recommend you get a new one annually)
- How often cups need to be emptied
- The best way to clean them
