Girls. Let’s talk about that ‘travel destroyer’ we call our periods. It’s really a b*tch when you’re on the road.
From surviving 15 hour bus journeys, nights out that never end and going for a dip in the tropical waters of your destination, there is 1 little tool that means you can do all this without problems. And I’m not talking about the pill (find out why I’m not a fan here). Our new life saver comes in the form of the … *imagine a drum roll here please* MENSTRUAL CUP. Excuse the red font… couldn’t help myself.
Although the entire process can be a bit gross and messy at first, you really become best mates with your vagina very quickly!
Whatever brand or material you go for this monthly savior is WAY better for the environment then all this disposable crap you stick in your pants. I personally went for diva cup, the most well-known period buddy on the market, in the small size of you really wanted to know the size of… that.
Once you’ve become a pro on inserting the soft rubber cup up there you can really carry on as normal. It’s totally undetectable from the outside so you don’t have to worry about tampon strings escaping your bikini or skipping that infinity pool in paradise because of your pantyliner.
What I really love is I can continue wearing my nice undies without worry and usually only have to empty the cup once a day!
This has become a real life-changer for me, I feel so confident and save a ton of money as well as the saving the environment from sanitary towels that take years to degrade. Plus it takes up A LOT less room in my backpack than the other alternatives.
‘I know what you’re thinking’ FAQ-
Can you sleep in it-
Can you feel it inside you –
Hardly ever, only if you do squats or sit like a wierdo
Can you pee with it in?
Um yeah, that’s a different hole silly.
How do you clean it?
Pour away your lovely lady fluids and rinse with soap and water. That’s it! I change mine 2-3 times a day or just when I remember.
