The Eve menstrual cup is a container in the form of a bell shape that is introduced into the vagina during the menstruation to deposit the menstrual flow. In comparison to tampons, which are also used internally, the menstrual cup doesn’t absorb the flow; this remains inside the cup until it is removed from the vagina.
The Eve Cup, unlike tampons and sanitary pads, is not porous, absorbent or fibrous, so it does not dry or scratch the vaginal walls. It does not disrupt the natural capacity of self cleaning, it is not uncomfortable when removing and it does not leave fibre remains.
The Eve Cup can be used at any time in the month, so that the user can practice insertion and extraction when she is not menstruating to get used to it. The Eve menstrual cup can be brought forward one or two days due to the smooth suction effect it produces. Some women have reported shorter menstruations caused by this same effect.
The Eve Cup requires to be changed (or emptied) with less frequency than tampons or sanitary towels. Its capacity, depending upon which size is used 25 or 15ml forms almost a third of the blood volume that a woman loses in each menstrual period as an average, so it can remain for up to 12 hours without being emptied.
It does not have any thread that is visible or felt, it doesn’t smell and can be used anywhere in any situation even on the beach or in the swimming pool.
The initial investment in the purchase of an Eve Menstrual Cup recovered after 5 or 6 months of expenses in tampons or sanitary pads. This way, it also protects the environment in comparison to other methods that are disposable.
