Why More Women Should Embrace Menstrual Cups
The reusable, bell-like devices unfold in the vagina to stanch the menstrual flow. They are as effective as sanitary pads and tampons, according to a new analysis and less expensive. Yes! They are Menstrual cups. Many of us would have heard about it, but are afraid to try it. Most women, especially in India, use sanitary pads on their periods. These pads are not the most comfortable, but that is a personal opinion and choice. However, these pads area huge part of the waste produced by households, and they cannot be added to composts either.
1. These Cups Are Cheaper
A menstrual cup costs INR 500 on an average, which may seem a price higher to pay, as compared to a pack of 10 pads, which you may get for Rupees 100 or 150. however, when you look at the long-term cost, pads definitely cost you way more than a menstrual cup. 1 menstrual cup can be used for years, while 1 pack of pads will last you for no longer than 1 monthly period. The initial investment could help you overcome the cost incurred every month.
2. Menstrual Cups Are Sustainable
When you use a menstrual cup, there is no waste generation. The blood is collected in the cup and then flushed into the toilet. This helps reduce waste generation and management effort that goes into it, not to forget, the cost that goes into it, as well. As we talk so widely about sustainability, we have to ensure that we use the resources we have in such a way that we are able to replenish them for the generations to come. We also have to come up with ways and methods that make things and activities sustainable, and not one-time use. Menstrual cups can help us achieve both objectives.
3. Menstrual Cups Are Hygienic
Menstrual cups are also more hygienic when used correctly. They can ensure a 100 per cent leak-proof period, which we all know is not a reality with sanitary pads. We all have those days when the sanitary pads cause rashes, redness, itchiness or irritation on our skin. Menstrual cups are, definitely, way more comfortable than sanitary pads once you get the hang of it, and can save you from all the added problems of the monthly period.
4. Less embarrassing Odour
You won’t have to worry about embarrassing menstrual odor wafting out at the most inopportune times since the fluid doesn’t get exposed to air as it does with pads and tampons. Moreover, pads and tampons absorb all your vaginal fluid along with the blood, which may disturb the delicate pH and bacterial balance in your vagina. You need to change tampons every four to eight hours, depending on flow. You can go up to 12 hours with a menstrual cup before emptying.
5. No More Harmful Chemicals
Cups don’t contain latex, BPA, dye or other creepy additives. Not to mention, almost all tampons contain bleached rayon a material that creates the possibly carcinogenic byproduct dioxin. Plus, that is bleach you’re shoving up there. Menstrual pads aren’t any less innocent, only slightly less invasive. TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) is a bacteria-spurred illness that can kill you. If your tampon has even a slightly higher absorbency than your actual flow, you risk shredding. Tiny bits of cotton can cause small cuts in your vaginal walls—a perfect breeding ground for the bacteria causing TSS.
6. Fewer Leakage Worries
With proper insertion, your menstrual cup should form a suction. Meaning, all liquid should pool directly into it without a hitch. When a tampon shifts or becomes saturated, that’s when leaks can happen. Does the idea of collecting your flow in a cup gross you out? Then likely collecting it in a cotton vagina plug or slab of adult diaper does, too. In that case, good luck. Cotton in tampons can strip your vaginal walls of naturally occurring lining, making your lady bits more susceptible to disease.
7. Menstrual Cups Aren’t That Bad
Cups are just as comfortable as tampons or pads once you get the hang of them. You can maintain cups in a public restroom, but you probably won’t have to because you can keep it in for so long. Just wash your hands and wet a paper towel to bring into the stall with you. Then you can safely empty your cup into the toilet, wipe it out with the towel and pop it back in for another dozen hours.
The only way to know if a menstrual cup is a right device for you is to buy one and give it a try! They come in various formations and sizes, so sometimes, if the first one doesn’t suit you, the next one will do the trick. You can find them at drug stores or buy them online.

Pleasant And Welcoming Changes in Language!
Language is a means of communication in all species of animals. Be it humans or other animals, all use language. However, humans are the only species that are blessed with a rich vocabulary. In addition, the human system of language is also universal to a great extent. For instance, the Hindi spoken in different parts of the world may be different. For example, the tone, the use of words, the accent. However, in all these cases the underlying rules of the language are universal. A means that brings together and binds different words of the language is a dictionary. In this post, discover the Pleasant And Welcoming Changes in Language through this very means.
Pleasant And Welcoming Changes in Language
What changes in language are we talking about?
There are a lot of rapid changes which the language of today has gone through. However, the language that we are referring to here is only English.
In Dictionary Terms…….
There is a trend of releasing the “Word of the Year” that dictionaries follow. This is usually done by the end of each year. For example, in 2013, the “Word of The Year” was Selfie. However, this year, 2020, has been more eventful as it has to it more than just one Word of the Year.
There are already a lot of changes in the language that have taken place.
The popular US dictionary, Marriam-Webster Dictionary, has made its fasted update in these times of pandemic. For instance, the word Covid was coined by the WHO on February 11. However, by 18th, the word has spread across the globe and had also made a place in the dictionary for itself. This progress is the fasted ever.
In addition, they are also considering to add newly seen words like ‘doomscrolling’ and ‘doomsurfing’. Both of these are pretty recent words. The first one appeared on twitter in 2018. Later, the second one has been recently seen in March for the first time ever.
A huge shout out to the Marriam Webster Dictionary for their decision earlier this year. When a young university graduate sent them a mail pointing out the inadequate nature of their definition of ‘racism’, a pleasant change in language took place. According to the new graduate, the definition should include ongoing systemic oppression as a part of the definition. Later, the editors agreed to this. This extension of the definition will be soon available in the dictionary
The Oxford English Dictionary is looking forward to an update with words like ‘WFH’, ‘Social Distancing’, ‘community spread’, ‘contact tracing’, ‘self-isolate’ and ‘contactless’ in the new edition.
In the Press…….
This one is a subtle yet important change. The news and the press companies will not be capitalizing the ‘Black’. For instance when race ethnicity or culture is being referred to.
The Scrabble Shines As Well………
We all know of the popular game scrabble. The North American Scrabble Players Association has come up with a new stand. They have a demand for restricting the use of 238 words that may stand out as racist or sexist slurs. For example, the N-word, ‘bitch’ or ‘culchie’ are all not welcome. However, the stand they have taken is indeed a welcoming one.
It’s not just in the US or UK, but also in India. For instance, a popular company has brought changes in their language. This is a big change in terms of their identity but a pleasant one. For instance, the brand ‘Fair and Lovely’ has taken a decision to drop ‘Fair’ from their name. The word has been a part of the brand’s identity and many households for many years now.
In addition, other brands that are re-branding are Uncle Ben’s rice, Beso de Negra cookies, Redskins lollies, Chico’s sweets, Eskimo Pie ice-cream, Aunt Jemima syrups and Darlie toothpaste.
Indeed seeing the change in language when it comes to using of derogatory terms or black mascots is a proud one. The idea of saying no to racial stereotyping for gaining profits shall soon end is all we happily hope.
