5 Reasons to Use a Menstrual Cup You Probably Hadn’t Considered at Natural Parents Network
I have a post at Natural Parents Network with “5 Reasons to Use a Menstrual Cup You Probably Hadn’t Considered.”
Information about menstrual cups has spread like wildfire in the natural communities, and more and more women are making the switch. What’s not to love? It’s a one-time investment so you don’t have to keep purchasing more product, saving you money. They don’t have health issues associated with them as do tampons. You reuse the product instead of throwing it away, giving a significantly lower environmental impact. Overall, menstrual cups, after a very short learning curve, are the menstrual solution our foremothers dreamed of. This hasn’t persuaded everyone, though, so let me share a few reasons I love menstrual cups you may not have considered.
- Since I always have my menstrual cup and can reuse it, I never again will have to ask my husband to make an emergency midnight run to the store. I admit to having done this back in college. He is a good sport and gladly went, but I can now save those requests for more important things … such as chocolate, or condoms, or chocolate and condoms. (You can compost condoms, by the way.)
