Menstrual Cups are a comfortable and hygienic alternative to sanitary pads and tampons. Made from soft, medical grade silicone, menstrual cups are worn inside the vagina where they collect menstrual fluid. You can wear your menstrual cup day and night, whether your period is heavy or light, and you won’t even know it is there. Purchase a reusable menstrual cup online in Australia and help the environment by producing less waste each month.
Save Money On Eco-Friendly Menstrual Cups
When you buy a menstrual cup online, you can expect it to last years. Some women have had their cups for 10 years or more. That’s because they are durable, long lasting, and easy to clean. Some women like to wear a pad with their menstrual cup on their heavier days, but many women find they no longer need to buy sanitary products. This means your period will be far less inconvenient. You won’t need to remember to take pads or tampons with you when you travel or take your bag with you to the bathroom when you have your period.
How to Use Your Organic Menstrual Cup
Once you know how to use your menstrual cup, it’s easy. The medical grade silicone is flexible and you fold your cup with your fingers and put it into your vagina, a bit like a tampon. Once it is inserted, it will unfold and form a seal over your cervix so that it can collect fluid before it leaves your body. This means no leaks, no mess, and no odours. You can be as physically active as you like, play sport, and you can even wear it at night when you sleep. You can leave it in place for up to 12 hours and because of the design, you won’t need to empty it as often as you would need to change a tampon or pad.
When it’s time to empty your cup, remove it from your vagina and empty the cup into the toilet. You can wash your menstrual cup in water, use one of our cleansing washes or disinfecting wipes, or you can disinfect it if you prefer. All of our menstrual cups online have a grippy stem so your cup will be easy to locate with your fingers.
Choosing the Right Menstrual Cup for You
At Flora and Fauna Australia, we stock Juju and Lunette menstrual cups. Lunette comes in different colors and is available in two sizes. With Juju, you have a choice of four sizes. The size you will need depends on how heavy your periods are, whether you have had children, your age, and your cervical position.
Lunette Menstrual Cup
As a general guide, choose Model 1 if you have a light to medium flow and Model 2 if your flow is medium to heavy. You will also need Model 2 if you are sexually active or you have given birth.
Juju Menstrual Cup
Choose Model 1 if you are under 30 and have not given birth. Model 2 is for women over 30 who have given birth. Choose Model 3 if you have a high cervix or long vaginal canal. Model 4 is for women with a low cervix or short vaginal canal.
The Benefits of Menstrual Cups
Our environmentally friendly menstrual cups do not contain any harmful substances. The medical grade silicone material means they won’t cause vaginal dryness, which makes them popular with women who have found tampons to be uncomfortable in the past. When your menstrual cup is in place, you won’t be able to feel it and you can enjoy total freedom whatever time of the month. Embrace your fertility and try an eco menstrual cup from Flora and Fauna, Australia.
