I’ve been looking to make the switch to a menstrual cup for a while, but only recently did I finally take the leap. The idea of the cup was super intimidating at first, but I’ve found it to be much easier than anticipated.
After some research, I decided on the Cora cup. It has a little indent for your finger to help you fold it and insert it easily. Plus, I was able to just buy it from my local Target. While I was there, I also bought a fragrance-free, gentle liquid soap to use for cleaning.
The cup came with an instruction manual, which was super helpful. After a little trial and error, I was able to successfully insert it. I was so shocked at how little I could feel it. I thought the little plastic part at the end would be super uncomfortable, but I couldn’t even tell it was there.
It was so nice to not have to worry about it for 12 hours. When I took it out, I just pinched the bottom, dumped it out in the toilet, and washed it in the sink with the liquid soap I bought. Then I put it back in and was good to go for another 12 hours.
Honestly, I just wanted to make this post for anyone who has been unsure about the menstrual cup. The whole thing seems super intimidating and complicated, maybe even uncomfortable, but I found it to be way less stressful than I thought. Plus, it’s more ecofriendly!
