I first heard about the Diva Cup when I was traveling from some super cool European women and immediately I was like, I need this immediately. I had never heard of it before and was fascinated by this idea but I knew right away this was something I had to have in my life. That was about 5 years ago and I’ve never gone back! Well, besides the unexpected period arrival at a friend’s house, then I might have to borrow a tampon.
One of the reasons I love menstrual cups the most is for traveling… and of course life in general. It’s made life on the road so much easier than I could have imagined. I use it at all times and have never once had a problem with it.
In many countries, feminine hygiene products can be absurdly expensive (not cool) and we all know when we travel that packing light is one of the biggest struggles. So the alternative might be to just bring al your tampons with you from home but there really isn’t space for that. Instead, just pack your tiny little menstrual cup and save rom for that extra scarf or pair of boots!
When you’re buying your menstrual cup you’ll want to make sure to read menstrual cup reviews in order to pick one that will best fit your body. If you do this, you can be very sure that you’ll have a properly fitting cup that won’t stain your very limited amount of clothing while you’re traveling.
I think traveling really opens your eyes to the struggles in the world, especially the environment. We have so many global issues right now and every little thing we do can help. Menstrual cups can be used for about 20 years. 20 years! Think about the amount of pads and tampons you are avoiding using by just using this one little piece of silicone, amazing.
Save that Cash
Us women on the road are usually not exactly rolling in the dough. We would rather be saving our money for plane tickets and hostel rooms, not on tampons. Believe it or not menstrual cups run to be about 20 bucks and that’s it. I can’t even begin to do the math to see the amount of money you’re saving on tampons with this one time purchase.
We know that on the road you are often in situations where you may not have access to a bathroom for a while. Menstrual cups last much longer than tampons, up to 12 hours. It’s actually safe to leave them in this long too. So while you’re sitting on that long bus ride there will be no need to stress about any sort of mess.
