This is quick run down of my period history and experience with the Pixie Cup; a menstrual + period cup.
i don’t want to sugarcoat or filter myself on this topic because i think as women, untethered convos on this topic can be super helpful.
for most months of my life, menstrual cramps have clotheslined me and had me contemplating why women are cursed (or blessed) with something so absofreakinglutely dreadful.
Finding ways to make my time of the month less awful has been a focus of mine since age 12. when i first started having periods, i don’t think menstrual cups were around or at least not so mainstream. i always had to buy a bunch of super absorbency tampons to deal with how much i bled.
thank goodness i can now rely on the Pixie Cup to help. a. girl. out.
Wearing the cup is more comfortable than tampons, is way cheaper and is better for my body + environment (wayyyy less waste). <if you’re still reading this, you’re probably not a dude, so i’ll keep giving deets>
It took me a few months to get the hang of putting the cup in so that there was so leakage and it was “sealed”. But i don’t have issues now and there’s no looking back to the days of buying tampons/pads every month.
I can’t recommend this cup enough, and AM SO HERE so all the questions you have. please comment with questions or DM if that’s more comfortable for you.
This small company has really changed my period for the better. I can’t wait to hear that more women are using this 🌺#gamechanger
