The average lifetime cost of having a period is £4800 with an average cost of about £11 per month spent. A full set of cloth pads will cost you about the equivalent of 1 years worth of disposables and a menstrual cup will set you back about the cost of 2-3 periods.

    Reusable products offer the advantage that after the initial cost, there is no additional cost to keep buying over and over again. Cloth Menstrual Pads can be reused for around 5-10 years and a Menstrual Cup around 10 years.
