Are you considering switching to a menstrual cup from the cumbersome sanitary pads? Read the Everteen menstrual cup review by Namrata before you decide!
Pricing: The listed MRP of the product is 435 however on the Everteen website when I recently checked it was on sale for 396 which is the same listed price on Amazon. Compared to other menstrual cups available on the market the pricing is quite competitive. It is fairly easily available to purchase discreetly, so you don’t have to awkwardly ask the guy at the medical shop for the same if this is the first time you are planning to try a menstrual cup.
How to Use: A menstrual cup is similar in some sense to a tampon in that it is vaginally inserted, unlike a pad which is external use. You have to fold the top of the cup into a triangle shape insert it and open it once it is inside to make sure it is fitted snugly. While inserting it is important that you relax your pelvic muscles so that the cup opens easily once inside. If you are trying a cup for the first time I recommend trying the small or medium size first just to get comfortable with the same. Also if you never had a baby before vaginally a small or medium size would be a perfect fit.
Thoughts: I have been a menstrual cup user for about 2 years now. I had been using the wow (small) menstrual cup until now. I recently got the Everteen menstrual cup in size small. On first look the packaging is very cute, it comes in a hard box with a storage pouch in which you can discreetly carry your cup anywhere. On trying the Everteen menstrual cup I was pleasantly surprised with the softness of the silicon. The cup itself is very soft and easy to insert for a seasoned user like me but also for someone trying it for the first time this is a good cup because of the matt texture it is not slippery and gives a good grip so you would not accidentally drop it in the bowl while inserting or taking it out. The tail is a little short and thick to my liking compared to the other cups I have been using however the advantage of that is it doesn’t poke. Wow cups have a more pointy and thin tail compared to this one and if it hasn’t sat right then it will poke you whereas this one has a shorter and more blunt tail doesn’t stick out much so won't poke you, the downside of which is pulling it out might be a little harder for the first timers but once you get used to it and develop your own technique then it is simple. So the small cup is about 23ml so it is a good way to know whether you are a heavy flow or a light flow and can keep track of your hemoglobin depending on how many times you end up having to empty it. For someone like me who has to do site visits without a toilet available for hours, a menstrual cup was the right way to go without having to worry about the soggy feeling of a pad. Maintaining it and keeping it clean is also very easy. When you empty it just wash it with water and if you are at home you can also use the menstrual cup cleaning solution by Everteen ( to be bought separately). Generally, after my cycle is over I just soak it in boiling water for 10 mins and wash it with the menstrual cup cleaner, dry it and store it away. So while enjoying the comfort and peace of mind of using a cup you can also feel good that you are helping the environment by not adding to the landfill of pads and tampons.
