it's not that scary
The only scary thing is how much an eco-friendly bathroom MAKES SENSE!
- You save you money (loads of money).
- Save annoying run outs and midnight dashes.
- You reduce the amount of toxins you are exposed to.
- Reduce the amount of pollution destroying our planet!!!
So one may wonder, if reusable bathroom make sense what's the problem? Like most things in life the hesitation is in the unknown.
So we sent out a questionnaire to a ton of awesome ladies, many who had purchased one of our reusable bathroom items but also many who hadn't. We asked if they had used any of the items and if they were happy with them, and we also asked what concerns there were about using the menstrual cups. We also asked them to throw the unedited nitty gritty at us, and we got a fantastic response so WELL DONE to over 100 women who responded and gave us an invaluable insight into what information we can provide you with.
We have had all of your Menstrual Cup questions answered in a easy to read drop down box format below, and we also have a detailed article to cover the more in depth information. Soooo here we go......x

All Of Your Menstrual Questions Answered
Fitted correctly, Confidence Cups create a seal against the vaginal wall and can hold twice as much as a tampon, preventing leakage. Too prevent leakage for first time users, practice fitting the Confidence Cup in advance.
The simple movements involved in removing the Confidence Cup means you do not have to touch or see blood. Simply squeeze the bottom of the cup to break the seal and use the stalk to remove it and tip the contents into the toilet. Do not pull it by the stalk. Also, the Confidence Cup does not sit high inside the vagina, so you will not be fishing around for it.
No. Given that menstrual blood is held inside the body inside a container sealed against your body, and briefly comes into contact with air when it is emptied, they will have less odour than traditional sanitary applications.
It’s as simple as filling the case it comes with (along with the Confidence Cup as well) with water and popping it into the microwave oven. This will kill any microbes on it.
Confidence Cups are made from medical grade silicone. Sterilised and cleaned according to the instructions means they will last for many years.
Medical grade silicone does not harbor bacteria or fungi. Sterilisation according to the instructions will ensure they stay hygienic and clean for a long time.
Yes. Microwaving your Confidence Cup in water in the collapsible cup provided will kill all pathogens.
Confidence Cups are made of very pliable soft silicone that mould and fit to the contours of the inside of your vagina. If you can insert a tampon, then these are just as easy. It’s a misconception also that the cup has to be pushed all the way up. In fact, the cup just sits inside the entrance to the vagina. (See in depth article for diagram)
Fitted correctly, you will not even know that it is there.
Once the Confidence Cup is fitted, it creates a seal against the tissue of the vaginal wall, making it virtually impossible to flip upside down.
Given that the Confidence Cup lasts up to ten years, the savings made on purchasing sanitary products can amount to thousands of dollars over that time. With the Confidence Cup, you will never run out of sanitary supplies.
Once fitted properly they cannot be felt. Some women may have a low sitting cervix and may need to trim the stalk back to adjust to their body size and prevent the stalk poking out.
This will depend on the type and amount of damage. If you an insert a tampon, then it is safe to use a menstrual Confidence Cup.
The FDA approved medical grade silicone is soft and pliable and works in with the natural contours of your vagina. You should feel no pain.
For heavy bleeding use the larger cup, it holds up to 35mls of fluid which is still four times more than a tampon. This means that you will have to change it four times less than a tampon.
Yes. The blood is inert and will sit inside the Confidence Cup until it is emptied.
They can be a little messy, especially in the beginning. But this is another reason we added the matching collapsible case, you can keep it in your handbag and if you are going into a toilet cubicle that doesn't have a sink in there you simply fill the case with water first so you can easily give it a quick rinse after emptying the cup.

SUSTAINABLE SMOOTH SKIN TIP
This one is short and sweet!
It is my best tip to reduce waste in the bathroom and have baby soft skin, it's inexpensive, chemical free, reduces plastic bottles in the bathroom and also means you are not having to stand and freeze for ages after a shower in the colder months!
Basically my tip is to get and old squeezy sauce or other bottle and fill it with almost all the way up with coconut oil, leaving about a inch of room to and any liquid oil you choose; almond, grapeseed, olive etc. Sit in hot water until they melt together, give it a good shake and add a few fragrance drops if you like.
Keep it is the shower and at the end of each shower carefully squeeze directly on your skin from top to bottom massaging in as you go. The liquid oil keeps it from setting too hard but over the colder months you may have to keep a extra container in the shower to fill with hot water straight away and sit the coconut oil in it to soften while you shower, but aside from that it's pretty easy and very effective!
Organic, cheap, no chemicals on you or going down the drain, no microbeads, less excess plastic containers...just soft naturally beautiful skin all year round! Whalaa!
