How much does your period actually cost?

-Siyana Kostova

Being a woman is actually expensive.

Have you ever wondered how much money do you actually spend per month on your period? Or per year? Or in a lifetime? 

Women usually get their period around the age of 12-14 and go into menopause when they are 50 years old. This is around 37 years of monthly menstruation. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days, or 13 periods per year. Monthly, every healthy woman menstruates for between 3 to 7 days. On average you use around 20 tampons or pads per period. Let’s assume that one pack of either one of them costs between 5 - 7€. 

6*13 = 78 € per year, or 2,886 € in a lifetime spent on your period. 


2,886 € in a lifetime spent on your period. 


Sanitary products are not only bad for the environment, but are also not so budget-friendly. We believe, all of us could spend this amount of money on something much nicer, or at least, not on a human necessity that you cannot run away from. Being a woman and bleeding on a monthly basis is one thing, but having to pay this amount of money on top of it is just unfair. Women must have at least the option to chose how to deal with their “lady problems”.

This is why we at Female Cup have a solution for you. 

Our menstrual cup can last for 10 years. Meaning, you need to buy only 3 in your whole life. One Female Cup costs only 30€.

This adds up to 90€ in total. 

Do you really need to think again before getting your own menstrual cup?
