Is there anything that can damage my cup?
Yes. Improper cleaning is a major factor that could damage your cup, such as putting it in the dishwasher (it can withstand the heat, but the chemicals in the dishwasher are another story). Improper storage is also another risk factor. Always wash it properly, and then store it in its pouch and away from extreme temperatures, children, and pets. If you treat it well, your Silky Cup (reusable menstrual cup) should last you up to ten years.
Why use a menstrual cup? What are the advantages?
To begin with, menstrual cups reduce waste which is great for the environment. It also requires you to purchase less and be able to do more. With a menstrual cup, you can still participate in everything you love to do while not menstruating, such as swimming and playing sports. You will also never be caught without protection – menstrual cup is reusable right on the spot. You don’t have to bring extras for all you need to do is rinse and reuse. It’s also great for travelling as you will not have to pack a bulk amount of products. It’s comfortable to wear, so unlike tampons, you can insert the Silky Cup before you expect your period so you are never caught off-guard.
