5 Reasons Why a Menstrual Cup is a Must-have for School
Let’s face it: periods are not our favorite part of being a girl. And it’s even worse when you’re running from class to class, trying to squeeze in a tampon change, worrying about leaks. And then you realize you’ve only got a crumpled up pantyliner to tide you over. Why are periods such an inconvenience?
It doesn’t have to be like that! Lily Cup Compact is here to save your school day – and your clothes, and your bank account too. It’s an ultra-soft, reusable menstrual cup that gives you up to 8 hours of leak-free protection, after which you just empty it, wash it, then reinsert! Lily Cup Compact is ultra-convenient because it can collapse to fit in a super cute case that’s the size of a tin of lip balm, so you can take it anywhere. Plus it lasts for years! Your period won’t ever be a hassle again. Want to ask your parent first? Check out our guide on how to ask for a menstrual cup!
Here’s why Lily Cup Compact is the one thing you’ll need to get through the school year:
1. Save $$$
From freshman to senior year, you’d spend approximately $312 on tampons. In contrast, a menstrual cup costs around $40 and you can use it for up to 5 years. By switching to a Lily Cup Compact, you’ll save enough to buy 160 grande coffees, 3 cute new outfits or maybe even a flight somewhere amazing for Spring Break!
2. Be free from your period!
Lily Cup Compact gives you leak-free coverage for up to 8 hours. Depending on your flow, you only have to empty and clean your cup when you wake up and before you go to bed. Just imagine: a full day with no disruptions to change your tampon or sprints to the bathroom after that tell-tale leaking sensation. You’ll forget you’re even on your period!
3. Help save the environment
Really. One Lily Cup Compact can do the job of 1625 tampons, and since Lily Cup Compact is reusable, you reduce your impact on the environment in a big way.
4. Never have a period emergency
With Lily Cup Compact, you only need one item the entire time you’re menstruating. It even comes with a cute little case that’s about the size of a lip balm, so you can drop it in your purse or slip it in a pocket. No need to lug around a stock of pads and tampons, cluttering up your bag and ready to spill out onto the floor in front of everyone. All you need is the Lily Cup.
5. Protect your vagina
Menstrual cups collect rather than absorb your flow, so Lily Cup Compact won’t dry you out or cause irritation. It’s made of 100% medical-grade silicone (the same stuff used in medical implants like pacemakers), so it’s super soft and flexible. Once you have it positioned correctly you don’t feel it at all. Plus, unlike tampons, menstrual cups don’t disrupt your natural balance or cause irritation – they even discourage bacterial growth!
