Menstrual cups are used by anyone to collect their menstrual blood. Like tampons, these cups fit inside the vagina and are held in place by the walls. Unlike tampons, these cups can be washed, reused, or emptied. Some cups have a “stem” at the bottom that can be easily removed. Learning how to properly put and remove these cups can be a bit challenging.


Some people use menstrual cups as an environmentally friendly alternative to tampons and pads. However, these products aren’t any safer or healthier than those used for feminine hygiene products. Reinserted and ed cups are more cost-effective than pads or tampons over time.
