Last time I made a vlog about the Menstrual Cup (MC) and it was really something new to me aside from doing makeup and skincare. Ang saya ko kasi nai-share ko sa vlog ang experience ko about MC.
But some important topics I forgot to tackle about MC on the video, and I’d like to share it here. I also made a review about my first MC which is Anytime from Beauty MNL.
How to Know Your Size?
Does size really matter? Yes, size really matters pagdating sa MC para tama ang pagkaka-fit sa loob.
During the first day of your period, insert your index finger, hanggang sa maabot mo ang cervix, the cervix is like the tip of your nose.
First-line – means you have a low cervix, it means that you cannot use MC.
Second Line – Mid cervix, means your size will be small.
Third line – You have a high cervix, it means that your size will be medium to large.
What Brand and How Much It Cost?
My first brand na nasubukan ko ay ang Anytime, it was good and matigas at makapal. You can use Anytime for up to 2 years. The price is P700 plus the shipping fee. I bought mine on Beauty Mnl.
The second brand is Intima which is the brand na ginagamit ko ngayon. It’s perfect for me because it’s soft and portable. You can use it for up to 10 years. The price is P2,000 plus the shipping fee. I bought mine to the Menstrual Cup Ph.

Did you know?
I read some blog 2 years ago…
Kapag gumagamit tayo ng pads at after using it for 1-2 hours at puno na. Akala lang natin, the truth is 5-6 ml lang yung period na andun sa pads, because the period is spread on the pads.
MC can contain the period up to 18 ml in 12 hours.
