Often the most common questions people have about switching to a menstrual cup are not necessarily on the subject of bleeding. Many people wonder about doing other parts of daily life while wearing a menstrual cup.

So can you pee and poop wearing a menstrual cup?

The answer is yes. You can absolutely pee and poop normally while wearing a menstrual cup. Some people have had prior problems with tampons falling out while using the bathroom and so, understandably, they would want to know. With all the advances we have made with technology, it’s about time we didn’t have to worry about losing our menstrual products in the toilet.

It’s always important to ask the basic questions, but peeing and pooping aren’t the only things that are no longer a problem while wearing a menstrual cup. They come with so many other benefits. Freedom of movement

Freedom of movement

When you trade in life with disposable pads and tampons for a menstrual cup, you will find many things you can now do easily during your period. We never realize how inconvenient pads and tampons are until we finally say goodbye. 

When inserted correctly, cups form a seal inside the vagina that prevents them from leaking. This opens up a world of movement for you. Most cups are made from flexible, medical-grade silicone. They allow you to work out, swim, practice yoga, and sleep comfortably. The soft material moves with your body and cannot be felt inside while you move around. 

Whatever you like to do, you can do it for longer with a menstrual cup

Menstrual cups give you the benefit of a longer wear time of up to 12 hours. With a higher capacity than pads and tampons, even if you remove your cup to empty it during the day, you will still dramatically cut down on your menstrual-related bathroom trips.
