I got my period box from Everteen which contained the Menstrual cup in a red cute bag. I always wanted to try the cup as I was looking for an alternative to sanitary pads as they are made of synthetic materials which are uncomfortable at sometimes. They are also harmful to our eco-system as they end up on our landfills. I used the menstrual cup during my last periods with the Everteen Panty Liner and they were not at all messy. It was easy to use and I had no discomfort while traveling. It is safe to use and does not cause any irritation or rash. This cup is really handy and is very amazing and comfortable. I extremely satisfied with the Menstrual cup and recommends to others.

This is a very interesting and well written article. I know of the menstrual cups, but never knew how to properly use them!
Wow…never knew such a product existed! Sounds like a good alternative to sanitary pads and tampons. Thanks for sharing the pros as well as the cons.
Thank you for sharing this useful information 💛☀💛
Very interesting. I’ve never used the cup before but I am amazed it lasts 10 years you say. wow!
I’m also using menstrual cups. I like that it’s eco-friendly. Good bye to disposable napkins! I saved a lot when I stopped buying sanitary napkins.
Thank you for such a useful information, I must say I wouldn’t use this myself though.
I have heard a few people say they use these and love them, I never really knew much about them before so found this really interesting and never knew they lasted for 10 years
I have been curious about these for years (since they started becoming popular) but have never had the guts to try one. Excellent point about cleaning them in public….I’m still on the fence…
