This is my menstrual cup. It catches the lining of my uterus so i don’t have to use tampons or cups, saving me $120 a year and $5,280 over the course of my menstrual years. HELLO, THAT’S A EURO TRIP ✈️💵 . My cup is made of medical-grade silicone and is reusable, stopping me from contributing 9,600 feminine hygiene products to our planet earth. 9,600 products is the average # a mensing woman contributes into the earth in her lifetime. (when you dispose of these items in the trash, it doesn’t just disappear. It goes SOMEWHERE)🌍 . My cup has helped me get more comfortable with my body, a gift I could have never imagined would be so life changing 😚 I’m more confident and feel safer in my womanhood. Because of the cup, I really get to know my body by way of my most intimate part: my flow 🚺 . My cup is convenient. During my period, the cup is always inside me, so I never forget or run out of tampons. In fact, I like to insert it the day before I’m expecting my period to start so I don’t deal with unexpected leakage when I begin to bleed.💆🏼♀️ . It took me 4 months (or 4 cycles) to get used to the insertion, flow, and emptying process of my cup. But once you get used to it, it’s so worth it. To say I’m in love with my cup is not a far stretch. ❤️ #leefromamerica
