Updated: May 11, 2021

Menstrual cup

It is a small cup made of silicone and for intravaginal use. Its purpose is to collect menstrual blood in a practical and safe way. The use of the menstrual cup should not hurt. There is an adaptation phase but even then if placed correctly, it should not hurt.

Not everyone adapts to the use of the cup. That is why it is important to try, maybe it is something for you, maybe not.

Cons about the menstrual cup

From only a menstrual care perspective, the cup is a great ally. From an energetic perspective the cup interrupts the energy flow from inside the womb out. Another con is that every time you lay down using the cup the blood can go back inside. Our period is a cleaning process of our body, it is material but energetic, so whenever possible, take that in consideration.
