I Tried A Menstrual Cup For The First Time And This Is What Happened

You've probably heard about the menstrual cup at least once, whether it is through social media or through your friends and family. In my case, it was social media. The first time I heard about the Menstrual Cup was through a Buzzfeed Video, in which they have given a few women to try the Menstrual Cup and asked what they thought about it. Later on, my friends starting sharing on their Instagram stories on what their thoughts were regarding the cup. Literally everyone that I know continued to use the menstrual cup after trying the cup once or twice.

I began to research more about this cup as I was so curious of what it was and how it was possible to fit such a huge cup into our little vaginas. Then I also thought to myself, how am I going to take it out, what if it gets stuck? I had so many questions and to actually know the answers to these questions would be for me to get one and try the cup out myself!



So I went out and purchase one and when my period finally came, I was so excited to try it out! However, it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to just pop it in and pop them out, well, it's always the hardest the first time. I started going through my phone to see videos and blogs on how to insert the cup in my "vajayjay", sitting on my toilet bowl, for about half an hour.

When I finally got it in, it felt like victory! (but to be honest, once you get the hang of it, you would take about 5-10 minutes in the bathroom and that will be it for the rest of the day)

I've only experienced leakage once and that was because I was rushing, so I did not bother to check to see if it was fully open and left the house. You would be able to feel it if there was any leakage and it will not leak like the Niagara Falls, but how I'd describe the leakage when you're wearing the cup would be similar to spotting. Hence, to be safe, for the first few times, it would be best to line your panties with a panty liner in case of any leakage.

Besides that, the first time I took it out, I had to dig really deep to find the stem of my menstrual cup.



The tip to this is that once you've felt the stem, pull it out slightly and pinch the tip to release pressure, pull and it will pop right out. The first time I saw the amount of the blood, I got shocked and felt kind of disgusted. After using it for a few times, I got used to it and I think it's important to remember that at the end of the day, it's your own blood anyway, so nothing gross about it.

What's great about this Menstrual Cup is that you can go out and about your day without worrying that you would forget your sanitary pads or tampons out with you but once the cup is in you, you can let it stay in there for up to 12 hours and how it is more hygienic is that, it does not absorb the blood but just holds the blood to dispose later on in the evening. However, if you really needed to unload the cup in public toilets, bidets will be your best friend because you can rinse them out with tap water and put it back in. Besides that, it just makes your down there feels so fresh and not clammy like how I would always feel with soiled sanity pads. I went to work, yoga, out partying with my friends with zero worries. You can even wear thongs, feeling sexy by keep your granny panties far far away in your drawers.

I loved the menstrual cup so much that I could not stop talking about it to all my friends for a good two weeks believe it or not. All of them asked the same questions which were things revolving "Isn't it too big to put it in?", "Wouldn't it leak?" "Will it get lost in there", and the only way to find out is to try them out yourself, just like I did and I'm never going back to sanitary pads! Better for the environment and better for you!



There are several brands out there now that are selling the menstrual cups now and the only brand that I have come across that comes in a very practical set would be OrganiCup!

Since it is something that I can buy one off and use it for the next 10 years, I obviously had to invest in a brand that is recognized and trusted, instead of random, untested or non-certified menstrual cups. For something so personal, i'd say go for quality cups rather than the inferior ones.

It is important to find a brand that is allergy certified and certified vegan (because I personally am against animal testing). Organicup totally fits in the bill and do check out their certification as following:



The Organicup Menstrual Cup set also comes with OrganiWipes and OrganiWash! The main function of OrganiWipes is to clean your menstrual cup on occasions without access to clean water, for example when you're in public toilets, out in the woods for camping, on the plane and etc.


As for the OrganiWash, it is a cleanser that is used to cleanse your cup before insertion and after removal.
