Why you should switch to Menstrual Cups

We know well: deciding to switch to a menstrual cup isn’t an easy task. Especially if you have been using tampons or pads for years, a different period care product might generate some questions. But believe it when we say: it changes your life for the better. To give you a little push to move on with this decision, we decided to build this list of key menstrual cup benefits:

Avoid Dryness

Menstrual cups collect the menstrual fluid instead of absorbing it, therefore, it does not dry you out or interfere with your vaginal flora. It is made of 100% medical grade silicone, the healthiest product material available today, making it hypoallergenic and contains no harmful additives, latex or rubber.  

No toxins, perfumes, or bleaches

A menstrual cup is inserted like a tampon, but unlike pads and tampons, it is free from toxins, perfumes and bleaches and leaves no fiber residues in the vagina. This drastically decreases the risk of getting bacterial or yeast infections and rashes.

High Capacity

Menstrual cups beat both tampons and menstrual pads, holding 3 times what a tampon can keep. You can wear it for up to 8 hours. This makes it an especially great solution for women with heavy periods or long and busy days. Find out more about using Ruby Cup on the go.

This first period with the Ruby cup was the most cramp-free I’ve ever been. It was amazing. I actually forgot I was having a period a couple of times. I could wear the cup the entire day at work, and not worry about it at all until I got home. Plus, no leaking whatsoever over night.  – Pam
