As a woman, there is one thing that NONE of us look forward to...and that is our monthly visit from Mother Nature. For as long as I can remember, I have always used tampons, pads, or if money got really tight...just toilet paper to protect my clothing. But thanks to a new product from a company called Softcup, those items are a thing of the past.
Softcup is a flexible cup that is worn internally, around your cervix. It collects, rather than absorbs menstrual flow. It's hypo-allergenic, latex-free and completely safe when used as directed.
Softcup believes in empowering women and offering products that help to improve their lives. With a focus on health and well-being, Softcup celebrates women: They strive to be honest, trustworthy, positive, innovative, and empowering.As a member of Moms Meet, I was able to try out this product, and even share it with a group of close friends and family...and it was no surprise that many women did not enjoy discussing such a topic. For some, its a private matter, and for others its the simple fact that change is not always welcome. But, for a select few, the product worked wonders.
The Softcup is a product that truly replaces pads and tampons altogether. Check out this table shown below...
I never did wear the product overnight, or during sex...but I imagine it worked in a positive manner in both cases. When I did wear the Softcup, I noticed that odor was not an issue, and I felt very safe knowing that it was not linked to TSS.
So, the big question is...why should YOU try it?
- You can wear Softcup for up to 12 hours
- Softcup is comfortable during swimming and sports
- Softcup eliminates menstrual odor, since your flow ins't exposed to air
- You can wear Softcup during sexual intercourse
- Its comfortable - and cannot be felt once its inserted
- You save money using Softcups, since you use fewer during your cycle (as compared to pads/tampons which are changed on almost every bathroom visit)
- Softcups have NO wings, NO strings...just freedom!
Because of its special design, the Softcup is one size fits almost all women. A 14-pack retails for $8 - $10; and a reusable Softcup 2-pack (you just wash, and re-wear) retails for $6+. If you are trying to be more "green", I would highly suggest checking out the reusable Softcups...they seem to be exactly the same as the original, you just re-use them!
So, where you can you find Softcup?
