There's so many reasons that a Menstrual Cup is a must have for any female traveler, Let me list some of them:
No Emergencies - you can wear it for 12 hours
Reduce cost - cheaper than buying tampons and pads
Save the Earth - you produce less waste
Healthier for you - made with 100% medical grade silicone
Easy to clean
Your Zero is worn as low in the vagina as possible so that it collects your menstrual fluid without any leaks. Your menstrual cup can hold up to three times the capacity as a regular tampon, so you will find yourself emptying your cup less frequently than you would be changing your tampon or pad.
How Does It Work?
To insert, you simply fold the cup and it pops open inside your vagina. Because Zero is made from soft and silky silicone, it is easy to insert & remove. You can wear your cup for up to twelve hours, depending on your flow. In this time, you can swim, dance, sleep, be upside-down - what ever you fancy! When it is time to remove your cup, all you have to do is ease it out, dispose of the menstrual fluid, rinse, and reinsert.
The Zero dimensions are as follows:
S model (20ml capacity) 1.67 inches (42.5mm) width (diameter), 1.89 inches (48.2mm) length, and 2.76 inches (70.3mm) including the stem.
L model (25ml capacity) 1.79 inches (45.5mm) width (diameter), 2.05 inches (52.1mm) length, and 3 inches (76.3mm) including the stem.
If it’s your first time using a menstrual cup or you’re a teenager, you may find S model easier to insert and remove at first. If you’re over 35 – L model will be best suited for you. If you’re between the ages 20 and 35, then please consider the factors listed below to help you decide which size will work for you.
Some firmer cups can be uncomfortable if you’ve got a sensitive bladder – use S model as it is made of a softer silicone, so it will contour to your vaginal walls easier without putting pressure on your bladder.
Congratulations on the miracle of birth! L model will be perfect for your vagina: it’s made of silky yet firm silicone, has a higher capacity, and is larger in size – great!
Pelvic Floor Tone
If you lead a very active & healthy lifestyle and have a toned pelvic floor, then S model will be best for you. If you have weaker pelvic floor muscles, then consider L model as the firmer silicone and larger size will prevent any leakage.
Take the time to work out the height & positioning of your cervix – if you’ve got a low sitting cervix, S model could be more comfortable for you.
Your Menstrual Flow
Did you know the average amount of menstrual fluid expelled each period is between 20 and 50ml? If you have got a heavier flow and are a more experienced user, then model L may be more practical for you as it boasts an extra 5ml holding capacity than the smaller cup.
