We held our seminar on menstrual hygiene management with a focus on Menstrual Cups at Golden Jubilee Hostel in the Lucknow university. This was the most educated group that we have spoken to yet with all students pursuing their doctoral work. With this level of education, the questions we received were also very critical and the young women here were a little hard to convince. They were not able to trust the menstrual cups as much as the other audience, therefore, they had unique questions for which we were not prepared.
For all those of you who may not trust the menstrual cups, please go on any website and search a little on all the certifications the company has gone through before manufacturing these. Menstrual cups are made from medical grade silicon that are hypoallergenic, which means it will not react with your body or cause any kind of allergy. Since no allergic reaction with the body will take place, Menstrual Cups will not cause any rashes or itching, which are a common complain for sanitary napkin a users.
We don’t have anything against the sanitary napkins and we believe that is a great alternative to using cloths or rags. Similarly, we believe that menstrual cups are a better alternative to using sanitary napkins or tampons.
