Can I Wear a Menstrual Cup While Pooping?
The first time I wondered if I could use my menstrual cup while pooping was when I sat down to poop with my cup in. I pushed a little and felt the cup move. I remembered my labor and delivery nurse yelling “push like you’re pooping” as I delivered my son. Then, I started wondering if I could drop it into the toilet! How terrible that would be. Not only would I birth my cup, but it would be covered in poop-water and not be re-insertable without a good boil. So, can you wear a cup and poop? Details below:
Lunette cup review
Reusable menstrual cups function like a tampon. However, unlike a tampon they don’t get thrown away or pose the risk of toxic shock syndrome. Lunette menstrual cups come in two sizes and a variety of colors. They are made in Finland from soft, medical grade, FDA approved silicone and are produced with high-quality standards. Take a look at both models below and read about my experience using the Lunette cup.

Pelvic Floor Muscles
To address kegel exercises I must first talk about your pelvic floor muscles. If Kegel exercises are designed to address a weakness in the pelvic floor, you are probably wondering what your pelvic floor is.
Your pelvic floor is very important because it supports your intestines, bladder, uterus, organs and maintains urinary and anal continence via sphincters. (1) Weakness can cause all sorts of issues including peeing yourself a little bit to a whole lot and pelvic organ prolapse: When your organs drop into your vaginal canal at varying degrees. They even impact orgasm quality and control of your rectum.
So what are your pelvic floor muscles? Here they are!
Reusable pads are a great way to green your menstrual cycle. In addition, they can also be used for urinary incontinence. These beautiful blue lakeside butterfly pads are from Bella Luna and one lucky person will win TWO pads! An 8.5″ regular and an 8.5″ light pad in Blue Lakeside Butterfly.
Vaginal steaming, V-Steaming or V-Steam
What’s vaginal steaming and should you do it? Vaginal steaming also known as v-steaming, v-steam or traditionally as yoni steaming. It’s is a technique “…whereby a woman squats or sits over steaming water containing herbs such as mugwort, rosemary, wormwood and basil.” (1) This process is widespread and has been practiced throughout history by many cultures.
Why would someone steam or smoke their vagina? Would you hover your vulva over a steaming hot pot of water and herbs? The details may surprise you.
