Different brands can provide you with different colours and sizes. Most have standard sizes but they can come in bigger and smaller cups depending on how your body works. They say it depends on age but I've read that it really depends on your body type or whether you have given birth or not. There might also be some of you especially those who have heavy periods that are probably wondering how much a menstrual cup can hold. Now, I'm not entirely sure because everyone is different. My heaviest days are at the start of my period and I was concerned that I wouldn't know unless I took it out. On my first day, I tried taking it out in public toilets as I was out and wasn't able to do this at home. I had intimate wipes with me so I just dip the blood into the toilet bowl and clean it with my wipes before inserting it back without having to leave my cubicle. I thought I'd have bled more than I saw when I took it out. As my pad would have been very heavy if I had been wearing one. I'd had my cup in for 5 hours at this stage and the cup wasn't even near the line towards the brim. It was filled about half way. Our pads have chemicals in them that react to our periods which add weight and seem full to us making us believe that our periods are that heavy. They also have a dried pool of fragrances which is why we also think our periods stink. With the menstrual cup, I couldn't smell a thing. You're supposedly able to keep it in there for no more than 10 hours and I tried this theory on my third day and there was no scent. Think about it, if there's anything you'd be smelling it should only be blood. People bleed and it's not gross and neither does it smell. Your period is merely blood and blood clots so it should only really smell like, well, blood which is nothing.
After using the Juju menstrual cup for 6 days, I feel like I'm still in no position to recommend this product. I've only tried it for one cycle so I think if I were to try it a couple more times I'd have a better opinion about it. I like the purpose of menstrual cups and I mean, if I were to perfect the insertion of my cup, it would be a no brainer like a tampon and I'd definitely ditch the smelly disposals. Otherwise, I do suggest girls to try it at least once because you'll never know if you like it until you try it. In the beginning, I had strong opinions about not using cups because the thought was gross and unnecessary. But really giving the product a go makes me think otherwise. I will say this, if you're contemplating on buying one, do what I did and read up about them. Read some reviews and watch YouTube videos as well. These really do help with figuring out which menstrual cup you should get and some may even answer questions you have because I haven't mentioned what you're after. But if you do have questions, ask down below and I will get back to you on it as soon as I can. Thank you for reading and good luck with your decision!
