I thought menstrual cups were gross — but I was wrong.

First of all, if you think periods and vaginas are gross — you need to ask yourself why you think this way. Menstruation is perfectly normal and should not be a taboo conversation topic. In fact, I think we need to talk about it more. Conversations about our bodies and what’s happening to them need to be normalised.

Now that’s out of the way, I want to explain how my opinion of the menstrual cup changed; and how everyone who menstruates needs to get one.
