i got bored so I made a powerpoint presentation about menstrual cups brands for awareness and knowledge reasons
all pictures are off the internet so not everything is properly credited, but just know that I didn’t make those pictures.
i hope this is useful for someone
Big mistake on the Mooncup slide.
The Mooncup was originally British. The Keeper company copyrighted the name in the US before the british company could - aka a huge dick move. The US mooncup is identical to the keeper cup but in silicone instead of rubber, while the UK mooncup is different. I think it goes without saying that you should NOT support Keeper/US Mooncup, they’re douches.
O_o i’ve never seen menstrual cups….. like….it’s obvious it’s used like a tampon but….stilll how do they work and is there any other things you use for periods? why don’t i know these things?
It’s completely normal not to! Most tend to focus on pads or tampons because that’s what most parents use and what we’re taught in schools. So alternatives haven’t really come in yet.
Basically menstrual cups sit below the cervix and collect the blood in them, then you remove it and dispose of the blood then rinse and re-insert. If inserted correctly they shouldn’t leak, due to a vacuum being formed.
There’s a bit more info on them and other products here: http://period-tips.tumblr.com/post/82237207384/sanitary-products-master-post
