Bathe with a menstrual cup

Can you bathe with a menstrual cup

When you're bleeding, it can be less fun to go to the beach to sunbathe and swim. Menstrual cups could revolutionise life here. With a menstrual cup, you can swim. The difference between bathing with a menstrual cup and bathing with a tampon, for example, is that the tampon can also soak up water. That's why you should change your tampon after bathing. But if you bathe several times and change your tampon often, the lining of your vagina can become irritated and very uncomfortable. This is completely avoided with a menstrual cup. On the one hand, you can take the cup out and put it in again several times without any harm. In addition, the cup does not soak up the bath water because it closes tightly against the walls of the vagina. So no blood can leak out, and no bath water can get in. The cup can't be felt or seen, so you can sunbathe and swim undisturbed.

Best menstrual cover for bathing

Discover how comfortable it is to bathe with a menstrual cup. It can't be seen or felt. You can insert the cup at home before going to the bathing site and it can stay in for up to 12 hours. You don't have to think about changing your menstrual pad during the day, even after you've bathed. Because the cup closes tightly against the vaginal walls, no water can get in and no blood can leak out.

For many people, bathing with a menstrual cup is one of the biggest advantages. You don't have to worry about changing your pads, or taking several pads with you during the day, you don't have to worry about leakage or worry about bacteria from the bath water getting into your vagina. Just bathe, swim and enjoy.

Easy to empty

If you need to empty your menstrual cup while at the bathing site, you'll need a toilet. Remember to always wash your hands before you put the cup in. If soap and water are not available, you can bring wet wipes or hand sanitizer so that emptying the cup is hygienic for you.

If you don't bleed a lot, you can usually keep the cup in for quite a long time - it can stay in for up to 12 hours. If you want to minimise the risk of having to empty the cup during the day, you can choose a larger size, even if you have a smaller amount of periods.

Hygienic and safe bathing with a cup

One of the main advantages of bathing with a cup instead of a tampon, for example, is that no blood can leak out, and no bath water can get in. When the cup is properly fitted, it is both leak-proof and does not let in any outside water. If you bathe with a tampon, it can soak up water and bacteria can enter the vagina. You don't have to worry about this if you bathe with a cup.

You have a menstrual cup that is both safe and secure. So you don't have to worry and can focus on bathing and enjoying yourself instead.

No one can see you're menstruating

Even though your period is one of the most natural things in the world, it can be a pain if it's visible or noticeable. Some people find it so hard to worry about their period getting in the way at the bathing site that they simply refrain from bathing altogether. Here, the menstrual cup is the saviour because it's a menstrual cover that can't be seen or felt. What's more, it doesn't let any bathing water in, nor can any blood leak out. The cup stays in place for up to 12 hours, so you may not even need to empty it once while you're bathing. For most people, that's a huge freedom, being able to bathe freely without worry.

Practice inserting before you go swimming with a cup

Of course, it can be nice to have tried the cup a few times before you bathe with it. So that you feel safe and confident how it works for you. It can be a matter of habit to get into the right position so that the cup doesn't leak, and that it sits in place comfortably. Sometimes this can take a bit of getting used to, as well as practicing the right technique that works. Don't stress and listen to yourself. You know what's best for you.

The menstrual cup allows you to hang out at the beach or swimming spot without any worries. Swimming with a menstrual cup without a thought of menstrual protection or leakage can be a huge relief and sense of freedom for most people.
