Why I Travel with a Menstrual Cup

Travel with Soul-Why I Travel with a Menstrual Cup

*Enter Adult Conversation*

I’m a tampon kind of lady. Well, I was until I read up on menstrual cups. Not sure how I came across them, but somewhere in my prep to be an international lady of leisure, I heard about them. When I’d gone to El Salvador and Jamaica back in 2010, I’d just packed a ton of multipack tampons. This time around, I don’t have that kind of space in my pack. So I went to my friend YouTube to see how women were responding to the cups and what brands were out and so forth.

I decided on the LENA Menstrual Cup. And to be honest, it was a toss up. I had no idea how to shop for a cup. After lots of research, I decided to look at the size, stiffness, and ease of grip.

LENA has two sizes, is pretty firm, but has a nice amount of give when folded, and has excellent grip-ability.

Not gonna lie, it was strange the first time I used it. But most things are. I got mine in November so I could try it out a couple of months before I’d be out in the world. And I love it!

  • I don’t notice it whatsoever when wearing it.
  • It’s easy to clean with a mild soap.
  • It helps me to understand my body more.
  • It gives me one less thing to buy while on the road.
  • It fits in perfectly with my on-the-move lifestyle in terms of it being easy to wear, store, and taking up almost no space.
