Men Struggle To Identify Menstrual Cups

And no, it is not meant for babies. Well, not directly.

With proper care and cleaning, menstrual cups can be used for up to 10 years. Many women are attracted to the cost-cut and environmental waste reduction that menstrual cups provide. Tampons cost about $8 per box. That means the single purchase of a menstrual cup can save you around $96 a year.

Obviously, menstrual cups are the way of the future.
