Menstrual Cup has become increasingly popular in recent years. Actually, it is not a new hygienic protection; the first Menstrual Cup was created in the United States in 1930 under the name Daintette. Since then the composition has changed and is now manufactured from medical grade silicon. The Menstrual Cup has grown in success, with women discovering the new reusable hygienic protection, healthier and more economic.
What does the Menstrual Cup look like? They are shaped like a bell container with a stem made of medical silicon that collects the menstrual flow without absorbing blood, (the stem is used for inserting and removing). Contrary to tampons, the Menstrual Cup protects vaginal flora. This quality limits the risk of Toxic Shock syndrome (TSS), avoids vaginal mucosa irritations and discomfort.
Today many women use the soft, reusable, hygienic and ecological Pads. These Pads are usually made of organic cotton and respect the most sensitive of skin types; they reduce the unnecessary menstrual waste production too. They also come with washable Panty Liners and ensure flow absorption of 5 to 12 hours.
The foldable 3 layer style with press button is very practical, easy to use and you can take it everywhere with you. Washable Pads have many advantages including their long life (from 3 to 5 years), they can easily replace the common hygienic pads.
Menstrual Panties are reusable the same as the Menstrual Cups and Washable Pads. The reason for menstrual underwear attraction is that they are economic and ecological. This is not the only reason for their success; the main advantage of the Period Panties are the absorbing zone of vegetable fibre in the crotch area that can absorb blood for up to 12 hours long.
Today’s Menstrual Panties are comfortable and have different styles base upon each women’s physical features. They fit all women with or without additional protection. If Menstrual Panties are used alone, because it is considered an external protection, all risk of Toxic Shock syndrome (TSS) is eliminated.
