Menstrual Cup Brands

by Tracy Menstrual Cups (2016-04-07)

Menstrual Cups are tiny cups that are worn inside the vagina that capture the menstrual fluids during a woman’s period. There are several brands of Menstrual Cups out there that are made from various materials. Some of these cups include the Luna Cup, Diva Cup, the Keeper, the Moon Cup, and the Lunnette. These cups are shaped like a large cervical cap, and are placed a little lower in the vagina. They are folded twice lengthwise prior to insertion, and then released to form a suction to keep it in place. The cup generally holds one fluid ounce, about the same amount of fluid as a super‐plus tampon70.  Menstrual Cups can last up to 10 years or longer. They come in 2 sizes – before vaginal childbirth size and after vaginal childbirth size. The cups can all be sanitized between uses in a mild vinegar solution, or the silicone cups can be boiled. There are also several disposable feminine hygiene products, including organic cotton tampons, pads and panty‐liners that are now made from certified, organically‐grown cotton.
