Are menstrual cups messy?

Menstrual cups are not at all messy, if you understand how to use them. Understand what causes the messiness when they are used incorrectly.

What do the Medical Reports say about a Menstrual cup?

A 2011 randomized controlled trial in Canada measured uterovaginal infection in a comparison of menstrual cup and tampon use and found no significant difference in physician-diagnosed uterovaginal symptoms between the 2 groups. 

No Toxic shock Syndrome

The Journal of Women's Health has published a clinical study demonstrating the acceptability and safety of the menstrual cup, in both clinical and pre-clinical testing. Generally, the best menstrual cup in India do not significantly affect the population of vaginal flora, including the bacteria responsible for bacterial vaginosis (including yeast infections) or urinary tract infections. There have been no reported cases of toxic shock syndrome (TSS) occurring with the use of menstrual cups.

Would strongly recommend

A 2011 randomized trial in Canada investigated whether menstrual cups are a viable alternative to tampons and found that approximately 91% of women in the menstrual cup group said they would continue to use the cup and recommend it to others. 

Not messy at all

In a 1995 clinical study involving 51 women, 23 of the participants (45%) found menstrual cups to be an acceptable way of managing the menstrual flow. In clinical testing, after three cycles of soft cup use, 37% of subjects rated the menstrual cup as better than, 29% as worse than, and 34% as equal to pads or tampons. The 37% who preferred the soft cup attributed their preference to "comfort, dryness, and less odor".

No leakage + No odour

A randomized controlled feasibility study has been conducted among adolescent primary school girls in rural western Kenya, providing menstrual cups or sanitary pads, compared with traditional items such as cloth or tissues. In a qualitative evaluation after six months' provision, researchers reported girls were free from embarrassing leakage, odor, and could engage in class activities and sport without humiliation and teasing, compared with girls using traditional items.
