Can I sleep with a menstrual cup on?
We all know how uncomfortable it can be to spend the night during the heaviest days of your period. While we learn to know our body, we usually try extra long sanitary towels or mega-absorbent tampons that aren’t very comfortable and, moreover, end up working halfway leading to stain. It’s then normal to look for new solutions that allow us to have a peaceful sleep without incidents. For all this, you may be wondering, can I sleep with the menstrual cup on? We’re very happy to say, YES!
As you’ve probably already read about the menstrual cup and its many benefits, you should know that it’s one of the safest and most discreet menstrual hygiene products that exist. However, we’ll explain what characteristics of the menstrual cup allow you to have greater comfort and sleep with it on.
As you already know, the menstrual cup collects the blood and flow of menstruation. Unlike sanitary pads and tampons, the cup keeps the flow in its natural state. In addition, being made of silicone, it does not get impregnated with the fluid and prevents displacements that lead to staining. It’s important that you know that an average size M menstrual cup can hold up to 16 ml, while the Beppy cup has a capacity of between 25 and 35 ml in the same size. This will ensure that you can use the menstrual cup even on days of heaviest flow without having to worry about emptying it overnight.
Peace of mind in health
The benefits of using the menstrual cup to sleep are multiple. On the one hand, medical-grade silicone prevents blood from oxidizing in contact with air and other materials. This is why the risk of serious infections such as toxic shock is significantly reduced and the time of use of the product is increased. On the other hand, the possibility of using the menstrual cup for more hours during the night guarantees you a constant and stress-free sleep, which in turn, promotes the proper functioning of your body and helps you start a new menstrual cycle with less uncomfortable symptoms. Finally, the constant use of the menstrual cup makes the vaginal walls exercise permanently, which is not only useful to avoid incontinence in old age, but also shows benefits in our body posture and in our sexual life.
We hope that this information has been very useful to you and that you are encouraged to use your menstrual cup to sleep. Remember, getting to know your body is a process of love and patience, so don’t worry if you can’t make the change right away. Keep in mind all the benefits that the menstrual cup brings to you and allow yourself to try new options that bring you greater comfort and health.
