With the market flooding with over the counter alternatives for menstrual products, there’s a new player to rock the town, Pee Safe’s Reusable Menstrual Disc. An innovative product that has brought about the revolution in the menstrual product space, this disc is not just your everyday, run of the mill period product, it comes with its own set of superpowers, like mess-free PERIOD SEX!!
But, what is a Menstrual Disc?
A Menstrual Disc is an alternate sustainable period product that goes into the vaginal cavity and sits at the base of the cervix. Made from 100% Medical Grade Silicone, the disc provides up to 12 hours of protection with a 55ml super capacity. The disc is phthalate & BPA free, comes with a leak-proof rim, & lasts up to 5 years. It comes in a one size fits all variant & the best part? It allows the wearer to have mess-free sex, as it doesn’t take up much space in the vaginal canal and sits at the base of the user’s cervix.
Alright, now let’s talk about the usage!
The insertion of the disc is pretty simple, the user just has to get in a comfortable position & squeeze the disc's sides together. Then, the pinched disc has to be inserted into the vaginal opening, pointing down and back. Lastly, the disc needs to be pushed past the pubic bone, so the rim tucks in right above it and covers the cervix.
Coming to the removal bit, it's recommended to sit on the toilet before removing the Menstrual Disc. The user has to reach into the vagina with their index finger, pinch or hook the rim, and pull it straight out. To untuck the disc from behind the pubic bone a push from the pelvic muscles will do the trick.
How is it different from a Menstrual Cup?
Menstrual Discs and Menstrual Cups are very similar to each other, they’re inserted into the vagina and collect blood. A cup sits in your vagina below your cervix and extends into your vaginal canal, depending on the type you choose. A disc, on the other hand, fits back into your vaginal fornix, which is where your vaginal canal meets your cervix. One major difference between the menstrual cup and menstrual disc is, that a cup usually comes with a stem at its bottom for insertion & removal, but the disc doesn’t. The disc needs to be pinched by the base to remove and pushed in using the index finger to insert. Usually, menstrual discs have more holding capacity than cups.
Caring for the disc is an easy breezy job, just wash it with a Natural Menstrual Cup Foam Wash during your period cycle and sterilize with a Menstrual Cup Steam Sterilizer once your periods are over. While the disc may seem alien, it is made from earthly elements. The future of menstruation is here at your door, should you choose to accept it? The disc contributes to the environment and is very ergonomic in nature. Forget about running to the chemist every menstrual cycle to renew your supplies. Just get yourself a disc & live your life carefreely!
