Pads and tampons can contain chemicals that cause irritation to your most intimate areas, affecting your health, happiness and sex life. Menstrual cups are a healthy option that keep your body in balance throughout the month. Cups have no hidden chemicals or toxins and they take care of your vagina’s natural bacterial balance.
We run through some of the great health benefits:
Menstrual cups are hypo-allergenic, so no vaginal discomfort or irritation. Cups are also free from chemicals, dioxins or fragrances that may alter your vagina’s natural pH.
Cups collect menstrual flow instead of absorbing, meaning your natural lubrication stays put, (ready for anything.)
If you have an active lifestyle you can continue your fitness routine throughout the month. Menstrual cups are discreet, comfortable and can be worn for up to 12 hours, allowing for any kind of physical activity. Exercise can help to beat menstrual pains and problems.

They are inserted like tampons, but collect your menstrual flow and fit to your body; no irritation, no leaks and no odours.
