Women’s Health: 2 Standout Feminine Hygiene Blogs to Know About

Welcome to Blog Profiles! We regularly select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. This week, as we look ahead to World Conservation Day and Self Care Day, we’re recognizing a few feminine hygiene blogs that promote period positivity and sustainability for the industry. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.

Next week, we’ll be celebrating International Self-Care Day (July 24), a day to promote foundations for overall, long-term wellness – not just for one day. And July 28 is World Conservation Day, a day to appreciate that a healthy environment is imperative for a healthy society. To commemorate these days, we want to highlight an issue that concerns half the world’s population that many might not consider when they think about conservation or self-care: menstrual hygiene.

As the menstrual cup market grows – demand is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.4% between 2023 and 2033 – women are looking to learn more about the benefits of these alternative period products.

Reusable menstrual cups/discs have multiple advantages over disposable products such as tampons and pads, including:

  1. Eco-Friendly: Since they are reusable, these products prevent a large amount of medical waste from going into landfills.
  2. Savings: They save money as users have to buy fewer products – some menstrual cups last for up ten years.
  3. Simplicity: They are easy to carry. No more worrying if you are carrying enough pads or tampons. It’s just one cup or disc and that’s it.
  4. Comfort: According to Medical News Today, many people report that a menstrual cup is more comfortable than pads or tampons.

For many women, these products are better in every way. While the switch to menstrual cups/discs can take some adjusting and getting used to, it’s a small price to pay for a much better period experience.

For those looking to make the switch, there are several great blogs out there providing readers and followers with the latest updates.

1. Put A Cup In It

I was looking to switch to menstrual cups for a couple of years but the process seemed scary, and I didn’t feel I had enough knowledge. Then I came across an excellent webinar on period positivity by the Toronto Public Library that discussed menstrual cups. The webinar referred to Put A Cup In It as an authority on the subject. The site has multiple videos explaining how menstrual cups work and addresses various questions and misconceptions about cup usage.

The site also has a lot of information on menstrual discs, a comparatively newer product recommended for menstruating people with IUDs (intrauterine devices). Put A Cup In It also has an excellent quiz geared towards helping readers find the perfect cup. I bought one recommended by the quiz and it has worked out great.

2. Period Nirvana

Kim Rosas, the founder of Period Nirvana, is a passionate advocate for sustainable period products. She reviews different cups/discs available in the market, educates readers and viewers about topics such as cervix height and menstrual cup cleaning, and addresses doubts that new and experienced cup/disc users might have.

Rosas also has an online store called period.shop, which in their own words is “the first store in the U.S. to offer a curated selection of the best reusable period products.”

Kim also dives into the history of reusable menstrual products. She recently shared a post about the first advertisement for a menstrual cup in Times Square all the way back in 1961. It’s fascinating to watch how far we have come and the variety of options now available. And her series “Cups in Pop Culture” tracks periods and menstrual cups being talked about in popular discourse.

The less waste we create, the less we contribute to harming the environment. So this World Conservation Day, let’s learn more about a potential move to sustainable period products, spread awareness about them, and do our small part in saving the environment. And if you’re searching for a better period experience, consider the benefits of these reusable products as a way to practice self-care.
