Why opt for a menstrual cup?
Disposable menstrual products generate around 200,000 tonnes of waste each year.
An eco-friendly alternative to traditional period products, menstrual cups like Allmatters offer several years use and require only a gentle wash before re-use.
They are also a real money saver, with tampon and towel users estimated to spend up to £18,450 on period products over a lifetime.
Once you are in the swing of using a menstrual cup, it can be significantly easier to live with than cotton-based products.
There is no need to carry a range of absorbencies and no need to do the old tampon-up-the-sleeve manoeuvre.
You will not need to empty your cup as often as you would change a tampon either. Many people find that their cups, suitable for up to 12 hours wear at a time, need refreshing only once on waking and once before bed.
Menstrual cups are also a safer choice than tampons, carrying a lower risk of toxic shock syndrome, also known as TSS.
Menstrual cup use
Using a period cup for the first time can be intimidating. Even this small menstrual cup might seem unwieldy to begin with.
But relax! Using a vaginal cup is easier and so much more comfortable than you imagine, just be sure to take your time and always wash your hands before touching your cup.
Inserting menstrual cup: the key to inserting your menstrual cup is to take your time and relax. Once you have found the insertion technique that works for you (and there are a couple of ways to do it) it will become an absolute breeze.
Wearing a cup: When you first wear your cup you may find it a little uncomfortable. It is designed to sit lower in your vaginal canal than a tampon. Because letting it hang so low may feel unnatural at first there is a chance you are wearing it higher than you need to. Remove and readjust. When your cup is correctly positioned you will barely notice it.
You may also need to trim OrganiCup’s stem. Some users even prefer to remove it completely. Use sharp scissors and take it mm by mm until you find the stem length that suits you. It may take a few days or even a couple of periods to find your comfort zone.
Removing and emptying menstrual cups: Removing your cup may take practice but again, once you have the hang of it, it is as simple as taking out a tampon, with less of the potential for discomfort on lighter days.
Empty your cup directly into the toilet bowl and rinse well in the sink. After each period disinfect your cup by placing it in boiling water for a few minutes.

A menstrual cup is reusable feminine hygiene product, which is a more sustainable alternative to using disposable pads and tampons.
It is a small, funnel-shaped cup, which is flexible and is inserted into the vagina in order to catch blood from your period.
Menstrual cups can usually hold more blood than other methods and so they are a hassle-free way to have a more environmentally friendly period.
OrganiCup The Menstrual Cup Size A is a small menstrual cup, which is recommended for use if you have not given birth vaginally.
If you are used to using tampons, then you will probably find it super easy to use a menstrual cup.
Even if you are not used to tampons, a period cup is fairly simple and straightforward to use. It’s simply a matter of a little practice.
Before you start inserting the menstrual cup, ensure that you have washed your hands thoroughly. You may wish to apply water or a water-based lubricant to the rim of the vaginal cup to help with the insertion.
Fold the OrganiCup Menstrual Cup tightly in half and hold it in one hand. The rim should be facing up. Insert the cup into your vagina with the rim facing up. The cup should sit just a few inches below your cervix.
Once it is in place, gently rotate the cup and it will open out, to create an airtight seal, which will ensure that you do not experience any leaks.
You only need to empty the OrganiCup The Menstrual Cup Size A once in the morning and once in the evening, as it offers up to 12 hours of protection.
Reusable menstrual cups work by collecting all the fluid from your period in their funnel.
You can leave the OrganiCup in place for up to 12 hours, for full protection from leaks.
Menstrual cup use is a great way to have a sustainable period. It also saves you the monthly cost of tampons and pads.
You will need to clean your menstrual cup each time you remove it. Simply remove the cup and then wash it thoroughly with soap and water.
You may want to give it a deep clean between each of your menstrual cycles by boiling it in water for around 5-10 minutes.
If you need to clean your cup in a public bathroom, you can do this discreetly. Ensure you wash your hands before you go into a stall, remove the cup and then wipe it out with toilet paper before you pop it back in. Clean it well as soon as you can.
You might find it easier to remove your menstrual cup if you squat down slightly and, if you can, use the vaginal muscles to push it down.
Then, using a thumb and a forefinger, reach inside and grab the tail of the cup, gently pulling it down.
Pinch the base of the cup in order to break the airtight seal and then gently remove it. Keep the cup facing upright to ensure that there are no spillages.
If you find it difficult to begin with, take a break before trying again to ease any anxious feelings.
