Menstrual Cup For Vaginal Hygiene

Average: 3 (1 vote)
Worn inside the vagina during menstruation, menstrual cups collect menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it like a tampon or pad. Silicone, latex, or thermoplastic elastomer make up the material for most cups, and since these devices are re-usable, they help reduce environmental waste caused by tampons and pads.

What is Toxic Shock Syndrome?

Toxic Shock Syndrome is a bacterial infection caused by Staphylococcu, a bacteria that produces high fever, drops blood pressure, causes organ failure, and leads to a rash throughout the entire body

Use of a menstrual cup can also reduce the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS, a potential fatal illness, occurs when bacterial toxins enter the blood stream through tears of the vaginal tissue caused by high-absorption tampons. Dr. Bruce Dan discovered the syndrome and revealed that the higher the absorbency of the tampon, the greater the risk for TSS, regardless of the chemical composition or the brand of the tampon.  [1]

Menstrual Cups
Instead of dealing with the high risk factors of contracting TSS, try Menstrual Cups such as:
These menstrual cups are healthy and effective products for vaginal discharge, collects the menstrual flow and leaves the natural moisture level of the vagina undisturbed.
