Generally I am a very Internet- lazy , shopping lazy, non tech savvy person -so never did a online review of products or places etc.., -but this time -its a bit different. This one bears a moral responsibilty especially Being an Indian women!.. & hence the effort- more so becoz no one else is going to do it-;)
So coming to the point-
Finally in a comfort zone -where I can authoritatively pen a review the MENSTRUAL CUP- after 2 successful ‘non-messy’- ‘sanitary padless’ periods!!
(Well of course I have experienced my own share of fears – how shall I pull it out anxiety – what do I do—? Will have to visit the Gynec.etc., but came out of all that., )
As they say, its always difficult in the beginning-but once the obstacles pass..-it’s a pleasure path.. so high time to share this bliss with the hesitant ones..
FYI, I used ‘Boondh’ cups ordered them from Ecotrunk- for ₹600/-
Tips for first timers : do not panic while removing ;- just remember there are 4 holes at the top edge, so if you press the cup a little above the bottom tip , it lets air out & releases the cup & then it can be easily pulled out .. now I have almost mastered the art & can do it without spilling ..
I suggest stop procrastinating & go for it-
… not just because you will end up saving on some pennies (If you spend approx 100/- bucks per period by the end of 6 periods its free for almost lifetime..!
not because sanitary pads are also unreliable many times
not just coz we need to reduce generating non-biodegradable waste!
not because we are damaging the cityscape!
not just becoz its an Eco friendly way!
Not because you need a shift in lifestyle!
But just becoz you deserve a litttle more Freedom!
…wish you all ..Happy periods!!
