What is a menstrual cup? A menstrual cup is a healthier, more environmentally friendly and cheaper alternative to tampons and pads. You wear a menstrual cup in your vagina during your period. A cup collects the menstrual blood instead of absorbing it. You can wear a cup for a maximum of 12 hours. Then you simply empty it, rinse it off and wear it again.
Our Practicups menstrual cups are made of 100% medical grade silicone. As a result, they maintain the biological balance of the vagina. Because the material is very soft and flexible, you don't feel the cup when wearing it. You can sleep, exercise and swim with a menstrual cup without any problems.
All the benefits of Practicups listed:
- Healthier: free from chemicals
Tampons and pads contain nasty chemicals, such as dioxins (related to PID and endometriosis), pesticide residues, bleaches, furans and fragrances.
These substances can enter your body through your vagina. Manufacturers are not obliged to list these substances on the packaging. Consumers are therefore often not aware of the risks.
Menstrual cups are usually made of 100% medical grade silicone and 0% chemicals. They are therefore completely safe to use. The cups are also hypoallergenic. As a result, they do not provoke allergic reactions.
The body-friendly material ensures that menstrual cups keep your vaginal tissues in perfect condition. They do not dry you out and prevent unpleasant odors and irritations. In addition, menstrual cups are not related to Toxic Shock Syndrome (tampon disease).
- Ultimate wearing comfort
The flexible material of Practicups adapts to your body without any problems. You therefore do not feel the cup. Covering up bulky sanitary pads or worrying about the tampon string is also a thing of the past!
- Total freedom
With the menstrual cup you are not limited: sleeping, exercising and swimming are no problem at all. If the cup is inserted correctly, the risk of leakage is nil.
1 menstrual cup lasts for years. You can reuse a cup over and over again, without spending money on tampons or pads every month. An interesting fact: 1 cup saves you the purchase of hundreds of tampons!
In addition, you never have to worry about running out of stock and whether you have enough space in your suitcase when you travel.
- Better for the environment
A menstrual cup lasts for years. That makes the cup very environmentally friendly. Sanitary pads and tampons not only create a lot of waste every month, but also have a high impact on the environment through production and transport.
- Up to 12 hours of protection
Your Practicups menstrual cup absorbs 3 to 5 times more menstrual blood than the average tampon or sanitary pad. That means you are protected for up to 12 hours. So you can do what you want all day long without having to worry about changing your cup.
- 2 sizes: always fits
Because it is often difficult to determine from a distance which size is best for you, we will immediately send you both sizes of menstrual cups for the price of 1:
- Size 1: can collect 25 ml of blood
- Size 2: can collect 30ml of blood
It mainly depends on the intensity of your period which cup is best for you. The diameter of the two cups differs very little. Therefore, unless there are gynecological issues (such as uterine prolapses), most women will fit both sizes.
