The menstrual cup is a reusable feminine hygiene product that is made of medical-grade silicone. As the name suggests, it is a cup that is inserted in the vagina to collect menstrual flow. The first menstrual cup was designed already in the 19th century, so it is by no means a new invention. When compared with the other numerous menstrual cup brands on the market, Nomai stands out due to the strong medical expertise behind its product development.
The design of the Nomai menstrual cup is based on knowledge of the female anatomy and menstrual physiology. The cup is made of particularly soft material that rests naturally in the vagina and conforms perfectly to the unique anatomy of each woman. In addition, the Nomai menstrual cup has also been extensively tested by Finnish women of varying ages in the product development phase. A menstrual cup must be comfortable, reliable, easy-to-use, and extremely safe. Nomai is all that.
Nomai was created by gynaecologist Nonna Heiskanen. The cup is made of medical-grade silicone in Finland, and in terms of design, it is an advanced option. Thanks to its narrow base and smooth surface, the cup is comfortable to use, and it does not press on the bladder or irritate the sensitive vaginal lining. The smooth surface is also easy to clean. The stem of the cup and the grip support at the base make the cup more convenient to use.
In the lifetime of a woman, over 100 kilograms of waste that contains plastic and decomposes poorly is produced due to the use of disposable sanitary pads and tampons. The menstrual cup is a plastic-free menstrual product with a lifespan of several years. When it is time to replace the cup with a new one, the old cup can be disposed of with mixed waste or by burning it in the fireplace. Thus, when you choose the moon cup, you are doing a great favour not only for yourself, but also for the Earth.
In terms of lifespan, the menstrual cup is superior to the other menstrual product options, as it can last for several years when cared for appropriately. Due to hygiene reasons, it is, however, advisable to replace the cup every few years. In order to make the cup more comfortable, some women use a smaller cup during lighter flow and a larger cup during heavier flow. By testing the different sizes, you can determine what kind of a cup suits you best at each given time.
The capacity of the red Nomai S is 23 ml, and it is particularly well-suited for light flow and practicing the use of a moon cup. The capacity of the colourless Nomai M is 32 ml, and it is a good choice for normal flow. The capacity of the black Nomai L is 41 ml. In addition to normal flow, it is also well-suited for heavy flow.
The thought of using a menstrual cup may seem strange at first, as you may think of blood as an unpleasant matter. The attitude towards menstruation will, however, often become more positive along with the use of a menstrual cup.
It comes as a surprise to many that the amount of menstrual flow is, in fact, quite scant, as the swelling of the disposable menstrual products makes the amount of flow appear larger than it actually is. Thanks to the numerous good qualities of the menstrual cup, menstruation ceases to be an unpleasant phase and becomes a time when you can live your life to the fullest while benefiting the environment.
