Since 2015, I have switched my period regimen to strictly the menstrual cup & can't imagine ever going back to tampons. This transition has completely changed my outlook on feminine products and has made me extremely passionate about spreading the word. Although menstrual cups may seem strange at first, it is by far the safest, most cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and hassle-free alternative to traditional menstrual options. I am constantly sharing my experience in aspiration to get people to make the switch and hope you'll wear your cup patch proudly!
