I’ve been hearing about menstrual cups for a couple years now. I was intrigued but not quite sure if it was for me. I’m one of those mamas who loves cloth menstrual pads. But there are times when wearing a cloth pad is really inconvenient: when I want to go swimming, camping, and hiking. Then one of my good friends who lives part of the year off grid in a tipi told me that she uses a cup. And she loves it. She convinced me that I had to try a menstrual cup. Now let me introduce you to Sckoon Cup, the newest edition to my eco-friendly period supplies.
Sckoon cup is a reusable menstrual cup made of soft medical grade silicone and approved by the FDA. It is a reusable eco-friendly alternative to using a disposable tampon. Sckoon cup comes in two sizes since we all know our bodies are not one size fits all! The Size 1 is for women who have not had a vaginal birth. Size 2 is for women who have given birth vaginally.
Sckoon Cup comes with a detailed instruction sheet on how to use a menstrual cup. I won’t go into detail here, but let’s just say that their instructions make it easy to use. Removing the cup was a little tricky at first but once you get the hang of it, it is really easy. Sckoon cup offers a variety of colors to choose from, which I loved! I wear fun print cloth menstrual pads so why not have a lovely colored menstrual cup?
Sckoon cup comes with a handy organic cotton storage bag. This will be really convenient for me to pack along in my camping gear!
Cleaning a Sckoon cup is pretty easy. I’ve only used the cup while at home so far. Now that we’re into prime Montana camping and hiking season, I have a feeling I’ll be using my Sckoon Cup out in the woods at some point. I figure if my friend who lives off grid can use a menstrual cup, I can figure out how to use and clean one when I’m out camping!
