That cup I liked it because they said it will last for 10 years, so I felt that for the 10 years, it will help us not to waste money.
I feel free, unlike pads, because pads you have to check all the time, you also cannot drive your bike. Now I can drive my bike and I don’t have to look back, I don’t fear … now I can stay for a long time at gatherings … You even sleep freely, no problems with anything.
I am very happy for the menstrual cup because it has reduced the burden of buying pads every month for the girl, now I use that money for basic school materials…. The MC has given to our girls; they no longer miss classes because of periods
[Using the cup] is so much more easy. When pads have been there for long, it gets too warm, and uncomfortable. It was as if I am not in my period … [The cup] doesn’t leak, it is comfortable, and I can even bike. It doesn’t hurt like disposable pads, where sometimes I wouldn’t feel like walking. Now I am free to do whatever I want and walk and bike as long as I want.
In the beginning I was fearing, but my friend also told me just pick it maybe you will like it later … My friend said I am even using it and I am so free, so I decided to use it. If not I would have been waiting. I also talked to other girls myself, who feared trying it. All I know are now using it.
About 25% of the world’s population menstruate, but good data about how girls and women manage menstruation periods are lacking. Some studies suggest that up to 25% of girls miss school during menstrual periods and others show that they feel embarrassed about participation in school activities. Adult women are also affected: doctors, teachers, factory workers miss work. Refugees or homeless persons have particular problems with mobility and access to services.
