Fibroids grow inside the uterus and therefore shouldn’t be affected by either product. That said, dealing with the symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged periods, and pelvic pain caused by having fibroids can be alleviated (or increased) by the product you choose during your menstrual cycle.
We believe that every person deserves a better period which can be made possible by choosing the right period product for you and your body. Please see our options below to see how FLEX products might be a good option for you.
FLEX Cup can be a great option. FLEX Cup has the capacity to hold 3-5 super tampons worth of period blood, depending on the size you get. It is one of the softest cups on the market which makes it an ideal choice for comfort.
FLEX Cup is also safe to wear for up to 12 hours. Because it's reusable, you can also remove, empty, wash and reinsert as much as needed throughout your cycle. This makes it a great economical option especially if you have prolonged periods due to having fibroids.
That said, the cup could potentially add more pressure by pressing on the vaginal walls - it’s hard to say for certain and experience will vary from person to person.
FLEX menstrual Discs are another great choice! Each disc holds up to 3 super tampons of period blood and is also safe to wear for up to 12 hours. You can also empty your disc when it becomes full using our hands-free emptying trick which you can view here.
Many of our customers have also reported that FLEX helps reduce their cramps, as it sits back in the vaginal fornix, as opposed to tampons and cups, which are placed in the vaginal canal.
Keep in mind that everybody is different and experiences will vary. Feel free to check out some customer testimonials on our Review Page as well to see if anyone has had a similar experience. Please note all reviews are real and not paid for by The Flex Company.
