Thank you to SckoonCup for providing samples of the products mentioned in this post. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of the Green Moms Network, and the content and opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
In my house we are trying to live a little bit Green, in all honesty it takes time to go all Green living. I want my household to be healthy and I want to do our part in making Earth a little bit cleaner. Well recently I was asked to review the SckoonCup. The SckoonCup is a reusable menstrual cup.
A menstrual cup does what a tampon or pad does but rather than absorb the flow it collects it. It IS a cup. If you are not squeamish about inserting a tampon then you should not be squeamish about inserting a cup. It is basically the same thing. SckoonCup menstrual cup offers the most advanced molding technology and design for the ultimate comfort and security during your period.
I’ll admit to some reservations at first. I mean, it’s kind of a “weird” idea – at least, it’s “weird” when you’re not used to it. I never used a tampoon so I was a bit nervous about trying the SckoonCup. As with anything new, there is trial and error, but thankful for the literature that comes along with the SckoonCup, it tells you everything you need to know.
The SckoonCup is especially designed for comfort with an incredibly smooth surface. The SckoonCup is made in the USA from FDA-approved soft medical grade silicon. I wish I had discovered the Sckooncup sooner! It is very comfortable and is super flexible and soft for easy insertion and removal. The cup comes in two sizes. Size 1 for women who haven’t given birth vaginally and size 2 for women who have given birth vaginally. The slim stem is designed to help make use easy and with no seams, a smooth rim and angled suction the cup really is super easy to use and keep clean.
I still have to get used to the idea of wearing a menstrual cup, but I am slowly changing over. Another option offered by Sckoon is cloth pads made from organic cotton.
