Some menstruators told us that they feel a little ashamed to ask their parents about Ruby Cup. While your mom may not have tried Ruby Cup, she may have heard of them. We recommend that you tell her you discovered Ruby Cup by a friend or online and are interested in giving it a try. You might want to tell her what your reasons are for thinking about making a switch. For most menstruators, it is because they want a healthy and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and pads.

Once you’ve told her about Ruby Cup and why you want to use them, ask her if she’d feel comfortable allowing you to try one, or if she wants to do some more research herself before making a decision. Your mum or dad can contact us any time if they have further questions.
