Lotus Menstrual Cup
Did you know that one menstrual cup replaces the need for 3250 tampons - saving around $1500? Pretty impressive
So if you are looking for a tampon or pad alternative, how about trying a comfortable and affordable reusable alternative.
I am a huge fan of menstrual cups, I started using one 3 years ago and I haven't looked back. Not only do they hold more than tampons, they can be left in for longer periods, there is no tattle tail string and you can never 'run out' and at this price it is a great way to see if 'cups' are for you.
Here ia an article I wrote about my experiences that might help you choose if cups are right for you...
The Lotus Menstrual Cups are ideal for women who are looking for a chemical free sustainable option for their period.
The Lotus Menstrual Cup is a reusable menstrual device made from medical grade silicone. It is designed to be folded and inserted into your vagina. Once inserted it opens up and is held in place by your vaginal wall muscles.

What size should I buy?
Size small is generally suited for women that have not had a vaginal birth, lighter flows or teens/young women, those with very tight pelvic floor muscles or under 30 years. It can also be ideal for first time users of a menstrual cup.
Capacity: approx 30ml | Diameter: 42mm | Length: 50mm from rim to base of cup 70mm |Stem: 20mm
Size large is generally suited for women that have had a vaginal birth, heavy flow, women over 30 years or those with weaker pelvic floor muscles.
Capacity: approx 36ml | Diameter: 46mm | Length: 55mm from rim to base of cup, from rim to tip of stem 75mm | Stem: 20mm
These sizing recommendations are a general guideline other factors you may need to consider are the strength of your pelvic floor muscles. If you fit most of the size 1 cup criteria but have very weak pelvic muscles then consider the size large cup. If you have a low sitting cervix then the size 1 cup will be a better fit. Some women find their cervix sits lower during the first 48 hours of their period then moves back to the higher position.
