Why I use cloth menstrual pads:

  • they are comfortable and gentle on the skin (by allowing it to breath)
  • they have none of the added chemicals and bleaches that are found on store-bought plastic pads (which effect the PH balance of your vulva)
  • reusable; which saves money and planetary resources 
  • they are easy to clean on a 30* wash cycle (even toss them in bloody with your normal wash and nothing is stained)
  • they clip around your underwear so can be slid back and forth for easy adjustment (I always used to position plastic pads wrong)
  • they are pretty to look at and actually cheer me up on my period

Why I use a menstrual cup:

  • none of the chemicals or bleaches that are found on tampons
  • a cup sits low in the entrance of the vagina (tampons go right up in there) - this completely eliminates the chance of Toxic Shock Syndrome
  • they can be worn at night time (this is an absolute blessing)
  • they are comfortable - I can never even tell I am wearing one
  • are designed to be changed less frequently than tampons (my light-mid flow requires a once every 6 hour empty)
  • they attract less bacteria than tampons as they do not have a pourous surface, making them more hygenic
  • reusable; which saves money and planetary resources
  • they make travelling, swimming, and festivals with your period so so easy
