    I switched to a menstrual cup 3 years ago and it has made life and travel so much easier. I don’t have to worry about finding or packing things and I don’t have to worry about leaks!

      That’s awesome to hear, Monica! Sooo useful for traveling and when you’re on-the-go 🙂

    Great post! One thing I would caution about menstrual cups is especially when you go to a country where you need your Hepatitis A and B vaccines, menstrual cups are a no-go as you need clean water to wash them and Hep A is transmitted through water. I think that’s something really important to caution your readers about when you’re suggesting the use of a menstrual cup so liberally. It is crucial to advise your readers to check the status of the water in the country they are travelling to. Without equipping them with the information to do this research, your readers who are travelling to various new countries and who take your advice to use a menstrual cup can, in the worst case scenario, potentially inadvertently experience serious harm and in some cases, fatality.

      Hi Norah! You are completely right. Thanks so much for pointing this out. That’s a great tip and I’ve updated the post with it.
