I’ve had several readers send me articles and/or questions about menstrual cups over the last couple months. I didn’t know too much about them off the top of my head from a research perspective - and prior to about 3 weeks ago I had never used one either. There are tons of Youtube channels and blogs devoted to menstrual cups. But one thing I learned as I worked on this post is that they are mostly anecdotal, meaning a woman tries all different cups and then relays that info. Which is great! But let’s explore some of the science/research behind this new trend in women’s hygiene.
