Menstrual cups are economical

On top of being healthier and good for the environment, menstrual cups are economical. They are about 20 times cheaper than buying disposables! You’ll never have to think about lining at the supermarket again for tampons or pads, having pads popping out of your pockets and bags wherever you go. A discrete and elegant menstrual cup will be enough and will be with you for 3 to 5 years.

A woman has to change about 5 times a day tampons or pads in order to be safe from TSS (Toxic shock syndrome) and in order to feel clean. A menstrual cycle lasts 5 days in average. That is 5 days x 5 tampons = 25 tampons per cycle which would be around 1 big box of tampons or pads. They usually cost around 5€. That is about 60€ per year just for tampons, with a few pantyliners and night pads so let’s round it to 80€/year. The average menstrual life span is 43 years, that’s 80€ x 43 years = 3440€ in a lifetime per woman spent on disposable pads.

With menstrual cups you will need 1 about every 5 years. Let’s say 9 cups in a lifetime maximum, They are ranging from 15€ to 50€ but let’s take an average of  20€. that is 20€ x 9 cups = 180€ in a lifetime per woman spent on her menstrual cups. Clearly menstrual cups are economical. Much much more economical than disposable products. Compare prices on the menstrual cup comparison table.
