Travelling, construction and other job assignments are of late being done by everyone irrespective of gender. In the past, women were limited to home duties and taking care of the children. However, the modern women are increasingly getting involved in all job types. The situation has changed partly because women are getting education in the same way as men and therefore there is absolutely no reason why they cannot do any kind of job because they are equally getting training and expertise like men. Many women are making a choice of staying alone without men as a choice, another reason is separation, divorce or death of men. This has led to an increase in family units that are headed by women who are by extension becoming the principal breadwinners. Finally, due to difficult economic situations occasioned by failing economies, women have been forced to come out of homes and seek employment to complement their male counterparts’ income so that the economic situation within the family unit can be upgraded.
Sighting the changing of lifestyle by women from housekeepers to breadwinners, we have seen other changes like the use of menstrual cup instead of the normal tampons and pads. This is due to the many advantages that come with the use of the menstrual cups. Menstrual cups are cost effective because they can be used for a very long time depending on the brand. This is because they are reusable and as long as you clean and sterilize well they will serve the purpose. However, compared to pads and tampons which need to be replaced on an hourly and daily basis, menstrual cups are truly economical. With menstrual cups, ladies have a wide choice to choose from because there are many manufacturers with different brands like Soft Sup, Femmycycle and Moon Cup. All the brands come in different colors, sizes and lengths that fit the needs of all women. Menstrual cups are safe healthy and convenient to use. They have no known health risk associated with their use. With menstrual cups a lady can track the amount of menses because it comes with measuring marks. These can guide in case of changes in the body. More so for medical reasons it’s easier to pick the difference in case of any changes. Additionally, cleaning of the cups is easy since you can use boiling water for few minutes or use mild soaps for cleaning. Unlike pads and tampons that contribute solid waste to the environment, menstrual cups are eco-friendly. All you need is to clean the liquid discharged and reuse again. Thus it’s useful for menstrual hygiene management.
