I know, most of us don’t like talking about periods. I don’t really enjoy either but I love the Lena menstrual cup too much to not talk about it.
Another installment in my toxin free lifestyle, I tossed traditional tampons when I did my research into tampons and bought a lena menstrual cup. Ladies, if you’re using Playtex or Kotex, please stop for the love of God.
Pay a couple dollars extra and go buy yourself unscented, organic cotton tampons or the Lena menstrual cup.
The amount of toxins that tampons are legally allowed to contain is appalling. Researchers have placed tampons made with certain chemicals on the “endocrine disruptive” list – meaning it disrupts our hormones.
They. Are. Disrupting. Our. Hormones.
Hi, horrible cramps and infertility.
Aside from the hormone disrupting chemicals tampons are known to contain, they also contain a group of toxins called Dioxins that are from the bleaching process.
Oh, hey cancer.
This is not scare tactics – this is being proven through scientific studies. Dioxins are a known carcinogen to humans – there’s no denying it.
I understand the lena cup isn’t for everyone, but I’m begging you to try it if you haven’t yet.
- are made with 100% medical grade silicone
- can be worn for up to 12 hours at a time
- is easily cleaned with mild soap and water
- environmentally friendly
- a cheaper alternative to pads or tampons
I used to go through an entire box of tampons every month, equaling over $65 per year. Lena menstrual cup is a one time purchase of $24.99.
My cramps have also decreased since switching to the cup which is a miracle. My cramps used to put me down for days, so this is one of the best things to ever happen to me.
