Products: V-CUP, menstrual cup

My Take

V-CUPS come with a long list of benefits:

  • 100% medical-grade silicone, for a sanitary, allergen-free experience without vaginal irritation
  • A sleek bell-shaped design for easier insertion and removal
  • Up to 12 hours of protection—go even longer, without missing a beat
  • Two different cup sizes in each package for guesswork-free sizing, because your body is unique
  • Better for the environment—a V-CUP™ will last up to one full year
  • Less expensive—no need to stock up on hundreds of disposable feminine hygiene products
  • Ideal for travel or camping 

I highly recommend V-CUPS, and, I have several friends who swear by them. My friends who swear by V-CUPS love that it handles heavy flow periods without leaking and the cost to buy V-CUPS & cleaner is much lower than disposable menstrual products. 

In an effort to always be super honest with you #KeepIt100. I will disclose that I do not use V-CUPS. I have tried V-CUPS and had a good experience. This is purely a matter of personal preference. I prefer FLEX for my body's specific needs. 

The period product or products you use comes down to your personal preference. My preference of FLEX is based on three main reasons 

  1. I am hyper-prone to vaginal infections. The shape and size of FLEX works better for resisting infections around my cycle. It is worth noting that I do not have a heavy flow period. I've had friends tell me that they bleed through FLEX. This hasn't been an issue for me.
  2. Again, I'm hyper-prone to vaginal infections which leads me to prefer a disposable period product. I don't like the idea of reusable with my sensitive vag. 
  3. Period sex. I love that I can wear FLEX and have sex without thinking much about it.
