Almost every review we've read about menstrual cups claims that making the switch to it is life-changing. Aside from being a more economical and eco-friendly alternative to disposable napkins and tampons, these cups have a long list of benefits, which you definitely wouldn't want to miss out on.

In case you're unfamiliar with menstrual cups, these are reusable silicone cups that you insert in the vagina to catch blood during menstruation. The cup and your body then creates a vacuum that holds it inside, collecting discharge and preventing leaks for up to 12 hours. Women who use it even say they can swim and run comfortably on their period with it! Also, since they're made of silicone, they're easy to empty and wash, and with proper care, one cup can last you for years.

When you're ready to make the switch, here are four menstrual cups you can shop online: 

Sinaya Cup

Sinaya Cup is a local brand, and the first one in the Philippines at that. Their mentsrual cups can last up to two years, and when you purchase yours, it'll come in its own abaca pouch that you can stash in your bag.
