God, I Love This Product!
Wonderful alternative to disposable pads and tampons.
-Very comfortable (if inserted correctly; it may take you a few tries to get it right. But once you're there, trust me, you really can't feel it at all!)
-Can be worn up to 12 hours. Though I usually change it every eight or so during use, just to be on the safe side.
-Can be worn while swimming, jogging, and pretty much every other physical activity you can think of.
-Never had any leaks yet.
-No risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome! YAYY!!
-No chemicals or dioxins or anything else nasty!
-Haven't had any infections or irritation so far.
-Great for travel.
-Also great for exercise/sports.
-I swear, these cups hold well over an ounce. So they definitely stand up to heavy flows. (I don't have an especially heavy flow myself. Just saying.)
-May not be for women who have problems with insertion. Personally this is not an issue for me but it's something to be aware of.
-You're still throwing away something every time you use this product. So I save it for long trips, heavier flow days when I don't feel like dealing with pads, and use washable cloth pads most of the time.
Love, love, LOVE these! I highly recommend them!

Last summer, I discovered Softcup. I have always had terrible periods: a minimum of 5 days, always with a very heavy flow. To boot, I was also very irregular, sometimes bleeding more than not in a given month. As strange as it sounds, my sole disappointment when my doctor decided last fall that we would suppress my periods until my tubal ligation was that I had only just found Softcup. I gave away my remaining cups to various female friends (3 of whom are now hooked). This week was my first period in nearly a year and I was SO THANKFUL to have Softcup instead of tampons or pads waiting on me. A few reasons I will never go back: as a substitute teacher with a heavy flow, I've gone from rushing to the bathroom to change a tampon between every class to simply once a day. I can now finally take long trips any day of the month without having to ask for frequent rest stops or worrying about leaks. With a partner who is very weary of blood, we can finally have sex any day! He CAN feel it, but says it is not uncomfortable. We have never had a leak. Softcup has made my life so much more convenient. I cannot wait to buy a purse pack. Thank you, Softcup. You have changed my life.

I'll never go back to tampons
I am used to terrible cramps and occasional leaking from every product, even when I used a combo of tampons and pads. It did take about one period to get the insertion of SoftCups 'right', but once I did, I've not had any issues using the product. I normally use one cup per period, washing it when I empty it and I have had zero problems. I don't experience cramping at all now. No leakage as long as it's properly inserted. I even forgot that I was on my period several times while using it. Once it's inserted properly it "disappears" on my radar and I don't feel it(somewhat like the old diaphragms women used for birth control).
I will never ever go back to using tampons. I did use some at first when I didn't have a SoftCup with me, or when I was having issues inserting it, but I always got cramps and it was uncomfortable compared to the SoftCup. Absolutely try them for at least 2 periods!

Ease and comfort
Started using 2 months ago. Problems with leakage but only because it wasn't inserted far enough. Sitting here wearing it now on day 2 of period. No leaks and no discomfort. I rinse it in toilet before disposing because certainly I will be washing my hands afterwards.

I just started using Softcup,and I don't know how I survived this long without it! I am super active, and spend most of my days adventuring (hiking, swimming, rockclimbing, yoga, kayaking, etc) so this product is perfect for my lifestyle. But the best part is the confidence this gives me in the bedroom! No awkward conversations or embarrassing messes, I rocked his world last night - I forgot the Softcup was even in there, and I don't think he even noticed! Ladies, ditch the tampons, ditch the pads! I will be telling all my girls about this revolutionary period experience!

I really thought this product was going to be my lifesaver for my sex life since my birth control likes to mess with my body by spotting/light period whenever it wants…. & I WAS RIGHT!!! I don't feel it, it makes work 10x easier by not having to go to the bathroom 24/7, & sex is still enjoyable. This product is a true life saver and I recommend this to any women who hates the mess and would rather just deal with it once or twice a day!!! The only part I would say I do not enjoy is one size only, fortunately it fits my cervix, but for women with small and/or tilted cervix it might not fit.

Great alternative to tampons!
Had my first baby back in October and because of breastfeeding, my period finally returned with a vengeance 10 months post partum! Because I had a baby, my periods are still trying to regulate, meaning extra heavy flow and a lot of clots. Tampons just don't cut it and can't soak up things like that! I'm only in my 2nd soft cup and I'm loving them! Very comfortable and can't feel it and it's giving me the tampon-leak relief I needed! The only con is the mess taking it out, so you just have to be careful! I would recommend to a friend and any post-baby mamas!

These are way to big. I barely got it all in but rolled over in my sleep and it moved and everything poured out. And I can definitely feel it...painful. What a waste of good money.

It's like I'm not even on my flow!
I tried soft cup for the first time a month ago and I will probably never buy tampons or pads again. I had a c-section about a year ago and as soon I stopped brreatfedding I started getting my period every 2 weeks. I've always hated the way tampons feel and smell plus they need to be changed all the time. The soft cup is much more comfertable. So much, in fact, that I can't feel it at all.
I am actually on the NuvaRing, for birth control, which has a very similar size and shape as the soft cup. Because I am so used to the ring I have no problem with insertion or removal. Since it can be worn for 12 hours I make sure I always change it at home just invade it gets messy (and it hasn't yet).
I enjoy sleeping in the buff and the soft cup allows me to sleep without having to wear underwear. In fact, recently I scheduled a waxing appointment for my neither regions and I am happy to say my estition did not have to deal with any period oder, blood, or an embarrassing tampon string. I'm sure she had no idea I was even on my flow.
I have yet to try having sex while using the soft cup but I cannot see it being much different than having sex while using my nuva ring. I will have to try it soon and see how it goes. It is a bit larger though and I have a feeling my husband might feel it and no enjoy it as much.
Overall, I love this product and have recommended it to all of my family and friends.

I got it in perfect the first time and was able to get it out smoothly .....it works great with ny heavy flow and so much better then a tampon which made me feel neasous and crampy ....these I can't even feel I love it :)
August 4, 2014
This has really made me feel so much better about being a girl when that time of the month roles around. Tampons would dry me out , cause my skin to crack and bleed and was very uncomfortable at times. Now Im completely at ease with this. amazing product, love it!

great thought, but end up with a mess
I bought this after using the trial, the trial ones were great didn't have any problems. So I bought a box of them and I'm unsatisfied ands so disappointed, no matter how many trys and readjusting they still leak and I have to end up wearing a pantie liner or I end up with a mess all over my clothes. I'll never buy these again was a waste of money I should have just gotten tampons. I won't be recommending these to friends or family that's for sure.

Soooo much better than tampons or pads
My friends think I'm crazy for trying this, but I swear it's better than a tampon/pad. No "period" smell, I can still be intimate w/ my husband, and I only change it out 2x a day. Let's be honest, when you urinate, some of that urine gets onto the tampon string which only adds to the smell down there because now it's on your underwear. Although it is a little pricy, compared to tampons, just knowing that I can still maintain my quality of life, it's worth it.

I have been using this for 4 years and will never go back to pads or tampons again. I have read some of the bad reviews and will assure you they didn't use it correctly.
In the beginning it does take some practice but as long as you put it in horizontal and just behind you pubic bone it works perfectly. The other secret is latex gloves. When taking it out it will be a bit messy on your hands. I personally use one per cycle. In the mornings I remove it in shower and rinse it clean. When I get home from work and empty and rinse and same before bed. If you are not at home you can either reinsert or put in a new one. If you are discarding your old one, hold it in your hand and fold your latex glove over it when you are removing it from you hand. The other benefit to it is you can still have sex while wearing it. I have had sex on my heaviest day and there was no mess and my husband couldn't tell I was wearing it.

I have used traditional feminine protection for the last twenty years (was an early bloomer). I have never found traditional to be comfortable, but thought it was my only option. I was grocery shopping the other day and ran across these (last box in store) and thought I would give them a try. On my goodness! I love them. No more drying out, no more smelly mess. No more leaks. I absolutely love these. Thank you so much!

Best decision I've made regarding my period!
I saw an ad in Cosmo about two years ago advertising mess-free sex, so I looked it up and was skeptical to try. I read through the reviews and finally bought a box and could not be happier with my decision! I have a heavier flow so these were perfect because you can wear them for longer than a tampon or pad. They're so comfortable and easy to use, can be a little messy when removing them, but I'm not squeamish. I've read reviews of people saying they are not convenient for changing in public but since the wear is up to 12 hours I plan accordingly before I go out for an extended period of time and change before and after I leave and return. Sex is also mess free and my boyfriend doesn't feel a thing. I love softcup!

Easier Than Expected
Once I got the hang of using the Softcup (which was quicker than I thought it would be), it was leak-free and far more convenient than tampons and cleaner feeling than pads.

First time user and I already love it
I usually use pads or tampons but I recently heard about soft cups. There isn't really a large display at the store where I shop so I really had to look for them. I just started using them and they look a little strange when you are used to using pads and tampons but they are just as easy to insert as using a tampon.

Well look at that!
I just started using this today and I am TERRIFIED of tampons however I sometimes have longer periods and needed something to make me forget about this awful time. This product so far has not left me disappointed Im really hoping it works for sex while on my period so that it never has to be an insecurity again! Thank you to the inventor, brilliant!!

Reusable solid protection
When the soft cup was called the keeper, a coworker introduced me to a sample. That was 9 years ago and I've been a faithful customer ever since. It's convenient, comfortable and reliable.

Better than tampons!
Finally my menstrual cycle isn't such an inconvenience thanks to Soft Cup. I originally tried this product because I wanted to be intimate with my boyfriend without the mess. We were plesently surprised! Soft Cup is easy to insert, stays in place, and is not noticeable to either of us. I definitely recommend this product!!
