Everteen Menstrual Cup Review
Today I will be reviewing the Everteen Menstrual Cup. Recently menstrual cups have become quite popular. Female hygiene is utmost important and I think menstrual cups are the biggest innovation in this field. We usually use sanitary pads and tampons while we are chumming but recently it has been found that as these are made up of non degradable material they take years and years to decay. Studies have shown that one sanitary pad could take 500 to 800 years to decompose as the plastic used is not biodegradable and can lead to health and environmental hazards. I was sent the Everteen Menstrual Cup by the brand to try it out. I was a bit skeptical about trying it out as it sounded a bit difficult and uneasy to use. The menstrual cup kept lying in my cupboard for almost 2-3 months and eventually one day I decided to try it out and I must say I am so happy that I made the shift from those unhygienic sanitary pads to the environment friendly menstrual cup.

My Experience with the Everteen Menstrual Cup:
So let’s start with what is a menstrual cup? Menstrual Cup is a funnel shaped female hygiene product that you have to insert in your private part to collect your period flow. I was a bit skeptical about it and a little scared to use it initially but it is nothing to be scared of at all, once you get the hang of it and once you start using them you won’t ever go back to sanitary napkins ever. I started using them around 3 months back and I can vouch for it, they are so easy to use, they are environment friendly and they are so good for your hygiene and health also.
The Everteen Menstrual Cup comes in a pink and white cardboard box with all the details mentioned on the box itself. The menstrual cup comes in a very neon pink satin pouch. There is a leaflet inside the box that describes the entire process to use the cup. The menstrual cup is light pink in colour and since it is made up of medical grade silicon, it is very soft to touch and very comfortable to use it.
Menstrual cups are made of medical grade silicon that has to be inserted into the vagina during menstruation and it simply collects the blood. Unlike sanitary pads menstrual cups can be used again and again for as long as 10 years. They are much more hygienic and environment friendly than sanitary pads or tampons. India has close to 12.2 billion disposable sanitary napkins to take care of every year, majority of which are not even biodegradable.So menstrual cups are really good for our environment also.
Directions for Use:
- First wash your hands.
- Wash the cup with Everteen Intimate Wash.
- Relax and sit in squat position.
- Press the sides of the cup together so that it creates a C or U shape.
- Hold it in 45 degree angle and try to insert it in your private part.
- Once the cup goes inside, it will pop open.
- Twist or rotate the cup if it needs to be adjusted.
- While removing, wash your hands.
- Then sit in squat position and gently pull down the stem of the cup until you can hold the base.
- Once it comes out, remove the fluid and wash it with Everteen Intimate Wash.
- Re-insert it.
How to Store it after Usage:
- Take a pan and boil some water in it. When the water starts boiling add the menstrual cup to it and let the cup boil in it for 5-6 minutes. This needs to be done after every period cycle. Dry the cup and store it in the pouch for next use.
I have been using the menstrual cup for the last 3 months and I am extremely satisfied with it. It is very soft and easy to use. You won’t feel uneasy or any discomfort while it is inside your body. It is so comfortable to use that you will almost forget that you are chumming. It is so good for your health as well as for the environment. I used to have a hard time moving around during my periods due to the heavy flow but ever since I started using the Everteen Menstrual Cup my life is sorted. You just need to practice it a few times and once you get the hang of it you won’t feel any discomfort whatsoever. The leaflet says that the large cup will provide upto 12 hours of protection but I like to empty the cup once every 5-6 hours. Actually it all depends on your flow, you may need to do a little bit of experimenting so as to ascertain your optimal time and to find out when do you need to remove the cup and empty it.
Pros of the Everteen Menstrual Cup:
- Made up of medical grade silicon.
- Very soft.
