Did you know that most disposable sanitary pads have over 90% plastic and each pad is equivalent to four plastic bags?
These single-use plastic-based menstrual pads end up in landfills that take 500+ years to decompose. They also carry BPA and other toxic chemicals which can likely cause cancer and can interfere with the reproductive system.
In a year a single woman uses 130 to 260 disposable pads/tampons or 5000-10000 over her reproductive years. This means 16800 disposable pads are used by a woman during her lifetime! If all menstruating women around the world used disposable pads, that would be 800-1600 million pads/tampons every day.
By using her cup (which lasts 10 years), a woman can replace up to 2500 pads/tampons in her lifetime!

How to use ‘her cup’?
Step 1: Remember to wash your hands thoroughly with clean water and mild soap before using her cup.
Step 2: Wash and then boil her cup for 3-5 minutes in a pan of clean water to sterilise it. Please make sure there is enough water in the pan so you don't burn out the cup.

Step 4: Prepare to insert - spreading your legs, gently separate your labia with your free hand. You can insert the cup while sitting, standing or squatting; spreading your legs will facilitate insertion.
Step 5: Once you have inserted the rim of the menstrual cup, the cup will start unfolding itself inside the vagina. All you need to do is to push it slightly with your finger until the whole cup is inside including the stem. It shouldn’t sit too high, the bottom of your cup should be about half a finger away from the entry. The cup, unlike a tampon, is inserted in the bottom part of the vaginal canal but beyond the pelvic bone.
Step 6: Rotate lightly & pinch the base of the cup (not the stem) and gently try to give it one full rotation in either direction. Doing so helps to avoid leaks by ensuring that the cup has opened fully. The cup should rotate easily when properly open.
- Use it for 6-12 hours
You can wear a menstrual cup for 6 to12 hours, depending on your flow. This means you can use her cup for overnight protection as well. You should always remove your menstrual cup by the 12-hour mark. If the cup becomes full before then, empty it ahead of schedule to avoid leaks.
