Using a menstrual cup with endometriosis

Published on 05.04.2019 at 13:30

There are many reasons why it might be curious to switch to a menstrual cup. It could be for their sustainability, or because it is bought once and could be reused for years. But can a menstruator use a menstrual cup if she has Endometriosis? Here, we are talking about switching to a cup if a menstruator has Endometriosis.

 

First things first! It is important to note that, if a menstruator has Endometriosis or any gynaecological condition; it's always crucial to consult with a medical professional before using a product such as a menstrual cup. Everyone is different, and a professional such as a gynaecologist can offer advice as to whether is worth trying or not.

 

There is much being said; claiming a link between Endometriosis and menstrual cups. Though, the lack of clinical data has left this at a standstill. Whereas, cup brands, Endo warriors and other experts have come forward to say a menstruator can use a menstrual cup if she does have Endometriosis. So, it is a very confusing situation!

 

Your body, your choice! Ultimately, this is what it comes down to; understanding your body and making an informed decision on what works best for you. The golden rule with cups is to stick to sensible hygiene practice. Never leave the cup in for 24 hours for example.

 

It is thus recommended emptying your cup every 4-6 hours where possible and be sure to always rinse it between use and sterilise it between cycles. It can help you understand your flow, how heavy you bleed and how your blood changes during menstruation.
