Some of you might have already heard about it, while some would totally be in awe. In whichever category you may fall right now, this article will definitely help to ease your worry and hence I’ve tried my best to cover all the points under one umbrella of knowledge. 


Being a woman you obviously are familiar with Sanitary Pads and Tampons. Sanitary Pads or Napkins are the most commonly used hygiene item by women during menstruation. Next to them stands the Tampons. 


In a country like India, Tampons were considered as a huge No, until recently, the new generation is easing up the lifestyle habits. Forget about tampons. Even sanitary pads were forbidden at first! If you are a movie lover, I’m sure you have come across the movie ‘Padman’. This movie was a huge step in the revolution of hygiene methods for women. 


For ages, women have been using simple cloth during periods. Menstruation was seen as a curse on a female and if it was your time of the month, you were considered unholy and disgusted away from the rest of the family. Using cloth was affecting the health and hygiene of women’s and hence, menstruation related diseases were on a rampage. 


But today many women like you are coming forward and kicking the traditional methods and superstitions associated with menstruation and its related myths. Today the Indian market is flooded with a variety of hygiene products from which you can choose. 

One among these is the Menstrual Cup.   


What is a Menstrual Cup?

A ‘menstrual cup’, also known as ‘menstruation cup’ is a hygiene item that is to be inserted into the vagina of a woman during a menstrual cycle for collecting menstruation fluid. They are shaped like a bell with a stem. 


Unlike sanitary pads and tampons, a menstrual cup does not absorb blood but instead collects it. When worn inside the vagina, it collects the menstrual blood. The material is mostly silicone and it is flexible so that it is easy to wear and also you don’t hurt yourself when you are using it. 


So how long can you wear or use a menstrual cup? You can use it for 8-12 hours inside your body without any trouble.  It generally holds 20-38 grams of vaginal discharge, which is three times more than what a pad and tampon hold.

How to Use a Menstrual Cup?


Fear, doubt, questions, and negative thoughts are quite obvious to pop up when trying something new. A new task is not always easy. But that doesn’t mean you should back out or stop trying new things. 

The menstrual cup is quite easy to use once you get familiar with it, like a second or third try will surely make you comfortable with it. The menstrual cup uses a slight suction system in order to create a seal kind of structure. 

How to use a menstrual cup?


How to use a menstrual cup step-by-step:

  1. Relax– when you relax the muscles in your body also ease down and relax, hence it becomes easy to carry out the process and it goes smoothly. 
  2. Sterilize your menstrual cup– cleanliness is a must when it comes to something related to your hygiene. Hence, sterilize your cup before every use. Also, make sure your hands are clean before you start to use the cup. 
  3. Fold the cup– fold the cup as instructed in the catalog. Normally there are 3 ways to fold a cup-  the C-fold, also known as U-fold ( shaped like letter C); the 7-fold; or the Punch Down fold (one side is pressed against the other). 
  4. Position yourself– the most important thing to remember is while inserting a menstrual cup, you should not tighten yourself, but be loose and free. Hence, take a comfortable position. You can sit on a closed toilet seat with a leg up or just lie down in your bed. See what works for you and go ahead. 
  5. Insert and Release– slowly start inserting the folded cup into your vagina horizontally. It should sit a few inches below your cervix. Once it is done, rotate the cup slightly to seal the grip. 

There you go! Done!  You have used your menstrual cup perfectly fine.


How to choose Menstrual Cup size?  

how to choose menstrual cup size

Everyone’s body is unique. Hence, what works for me isn’t necessary to work for you too. Therefore, the question of size arises while shopping for a menstrual cup. For sanitary pads, there’s not much thinking to be done. But when choosing a menstrual cup, you should always find a perfect match for your body. 

Menstrual cups often come in 2 sizes, a smaller and larger version. But, many brands are now offering various sizes, ranging from young teens to elderly women. Since it’s your first time, the confusion in size is obviously bothering you. But don’t you worry beautiful, I’m all here to help you out. 

There are two things to consider while choosing a menstrual cup; size and flow. The first being more important than the latter. Sometimes you tend to buy something just because it is more in quantity! But here the situation is not such. You should always go for the perfect size first since it will not only help you ease the process and have a perfect fit but there are near to zero chances of getting a leak since the seal will be perfectly intact if the size of the cup is perfect. 

So how exactly do you choose a size that will fit you? Have you ever gotten confused when shopping for clothes! Like take a pair of jeans from brand A and its S in size, but you shop for S in another brand B and there your fit is M! How confusing! The same is with menstrual cups. There is no true standardized size or naming and each brand has its own sizes. 

 But most of the cups go by diameter because when fitting a menstrual cup two things are taken into consideration: the suction created on vaginal walls (so as to act as a seal) and your pelvic floor muscles. Hence, it depends on your muscles state.  

For instance, if you are above 30 or out from a full-term pregnancy your pelvic muscles relax and hence they become less tight. So this is when you’ll need to use a large cup so that the seal is created.

Menstrual cups vs Sanitary Pads

Menstrual cups vs Sanitary pads

Sanitary pads are something that are quite popular and you must have been using them since it’s like a passed-on tradition. But since you are here reading this article, I’m sure you are one among the revolutionary women who wants to try different things and step up in this modern world, which is quite a good idea. I mean if it is good and safe and comes with lots of benefits, why not! 

Comparisons always pop up when you adhere to something which you have been practicing or hearing about since the start. So it is but natural to have questions running in your mind when you just give a thought to trying something new. Likewise, if you are using sanitary napkins, and decide to switch on cups instead, your mind will fuse questions and doubts. 

So here’s a quick comparison of sanitary pads and menstrual cups to ease your mind to choose the best for you.

Pros and Cons of Menstrual Cup

Pros and cons of menstrual cup

There are always two sides to a coin. Take anything in the world, it always has to have two sides. The same applies to any product. It has a good side and some negative side. 

Advantages of menstrual cups:

  • Budget-Friendly– though at first when you look at the price of a menstrual cup, they are priced higher than your average sanitary napkins and tampons. But purchasing one cup is a one-time investment. The cup can go up to 6-10 months with proper use.  
  • Safe to use–   I hope you know the infections that come along with using sanitary pads and tampons. Plus the danger of rashes and itchy skin. But in the case of menstrual cups, this is not a problem. Menstrual cups are safe to use and also very hygienic.  
  • Holds more liquid and less worry about leakage–  menstrual cups once worn, can hold the menstrual flow of blood up to 8-12 hours depending on your flow. There is no need to check and change it every 4-5 hours as you do for your tampons and pads.    The most dreadful thing is the leakage problem. Is leakage bothering you often? Do you constantly keep checking if there’s a blood spot on your pants! Or you frequently ask your lady companion to check up on you!  All these problems are at a bay when you use menstrual cups.
  • Better and sound sleep–  you must be aware of your sleeping position at night when you are on your MC. It has to be straight, or else whoosh!!! Next thing you see, you are covered in red! Sanitary pads can be very uncomfortable at times. But with a menstrual cup inside you, there’s nothing to worry about. No leakage, no rash feeling, gentle and all this will help you sleep sound and peaceful at night. So aren’t those all good things under one umbrella!

Disadvantages of menstrual cups:

  • The problem of size: this is very common when you are a first-time user. Finding the perfect cup size for you is going to be a difficult task at first. Since there are no standardized measurements and different brands showcase different sizes, it is natural to go crazy at the size first. 
  • Can get messy when taking it out: menstrual cups can be quite messy when it’s time to take them out. One among them is the worry to spill it all over! 
  • Risk of allergic reactions: although menstrual cups reduce the risk of vaginal infections caused due to rashes etc., if you are allergic to the material used in the making of the cup, then it can be a problem. Like some people can be allergic to rubber or silicone. 
  • Risk of infections if not cleaned properly: most cups are reusable and you need to clean them and take proper care. But if you’re not cleaning your cup properly, say goodbye to hygiene and say hello to infections. Nobody wants that right! So better clean your cup real good. 


How much does a Menstrual Cup cost / Menstrual Cup price in India? 

How much does a Menstrual Cup cost / Menstrual Cup price in India?

The price of Menstrual cups may look costly at first, but logically it is a one-time investment for almost 6-8 months, unlike sanitary pads and tampons for which you have to collect dozens of pockets every month. 

The price range of a menstrual cup can vary from size to size and also brand to brand. The basic starts from Rs.300/- and can go up to Rs. 3000/-



Are Indian Women Ready To Use Menstrual Cups? 

Indian society has been for many years an orthodox society. For ages, MC was considered the dirtiest thing and women had to face a lot of difficulties and challenges. Women were prohibited to enter religious places or worship when on periods. It was considered unholy! Our society and also our educational system doesn’t prepare girls for this. 

To date 40-45% of women still follow traditional methods of hygiene during menstruation, such as saree cloth, leaves, newspaper, etc. Unknown to the fact that these unhygienic measures put their lives in grave danger for infections related to the reproductive part of a woman. 

But today strong women like you are coming forward and experimenting with new and better hygienic practices. Many urban women are introduced to sanitary napkins, tampons and menstrual cups. But still, there’s a long road ahead. 

But even when this is so, many women are still scared to use tampons and menstrual cups as they are to be inserted into the vagina, fearing that it would affect their virginity. This is complicated to say and convince people, after all, virginity is just a social construct.  Hence, we still have to create a lot of awareness about menstruation in general and the benefits of a proper hygiene routine. 



Menstruation Cup is a women’s hygiene product. It has a history of long years of use but has recently become widely popular. Indian women are still using it relatively less. I have dedicated this post with the aim of bringing awareness of the menstrual cup to Indian girls and women. Therefore, I have combined a list of the best menstrual cups in India. Hope you like my effort.
