Betulacup For Female Travellers – Why It’s Time To Ditch Your Pads And Tampons

Betulacup For Female Travellers:
Why It's Time To Ditch Your Pads And Tampons

Menstrual Cup has taken the lady's business by storm just recently. Even though it has been on the surface for quite some time now, it seems like that the menstrual cup is now getting the spotlight it deserves. As a female traveller, I always get to the situation of not able to find the solution I need when the time of the month comes.

For example, in Southeast Asia, I found it hard to find a tampon, whilst the pads are not translated in English, hence deciding which one to buy is a real challenge. Since I came across the Betulacup, I couldn't wait to share it with other female travellers too!

Menstrual Cup is feminine hygiene that is normally made of medical-grade silicone. It is usually shaped like a bell, and flexible. The menstrual cup should be inserted into the vagina to collect the menstrual fluid (blood).

Why It's Time To Ditch Your Pads And Tampons

  • Tampons require you to change every 4 hours, that's 4-5 times a day depending on your flow.
  • Wearing tampons for too long will be risking your life to TSS (toxic shock syndrome).
  • Sitting on a pad with menstrual fluid on it will cause irritation.
  • Both pads and tampons cost a lot more money compared to a menstrual cup.
  • Tampons interfere with the vaginal environment. Since it absorbs both blood and moisture, it messes up the pH levels of your vagina.
  • Tampons leave fabrics on your vagina walls.
  • Both tampons and pads are not always available when you are travelling to a new country.

Benefits of a Menstrual Cup For a Female Traveller

  • Menstrual cup last for at least 8 years, this saves you tons of money from buying pads and tampons.
  • It holds up to 12 hours a day, no more awkward excuses to run to the bathroom.
  • Don't bother asking your hotel receptionist what is tampon or pads in the local language.
  • Takes a lot less space in your luggage.
  • You can sleep on it during long bus rides, thank God.
  • Bye bye, bad odour.
  • Go swim, do crazy activities, the menstrual cup is all cool for that.
  • Definitely more ecological than pads and tampons.

Why I love Betulacup 

  • Save
  • It comes in three types, for women who had given birth (Classic), women who haven't given birth (Young), and the cup that fits all types of women (Folder).
  • Betulacup Folder comes with a plastic case where you can store you're ready to use (after boiling) cup. The case is very small that it could fit in your purse or pocket.

I personally would say that menstrual cup is a real deal. Although it will surely give you an I-have-to-shove-this-up-there face, don't we say the same thing when tampon came around? Let your travel life a bit less hassle, help to save the environment, save your bank accounts, and stop putting your life at risk!
