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!

Good product, but spillage happens
I've been using softcup and off for about 3 years. My last 2 cycles I've used the reusable cups. They are much more comfortable than a tampon or pad and contain that gross "period smell" really well. However, you don't want have to remove it in public bc you're guaranteed to some on your hands. What I have learned to do is to use the restroom around every 4 hours on a heavy flow day and bear down as if you're urinating. This emptied out the majority of the cup and prevents the spillage almost everyone's experienced. I know isn't exactly "long lasting" but it's the solution I've found to prevent having to pull the whole thing out when I'm not a home. Also, even at home washing menses out in your sink is gross so whenever possible I pull it out to empty it in the shower, it just seems easier and more sanitary to me.

No more tampons
I decided to try this product about a year ago while on vacation. I have a normal to heavy flow so traveling can be a major hassle for me when I'm on my period; so I figured why not try the cup. I LOVED it immediately! Learning to insert and take it out took a bit of practice (I recommend using a back-up pad or panty liner the first few times, just in case), but once I got the hang of it my cycles have been so easy. I can fly and travel comfortably without worrying about leaks or finding clean facilities to change a tampon in every few hours. Since I'm spending less time dealing with those issues, and more time going about my day, I hardly even notice when I'm on my cycle anymore. It works wonders for me so I recommend this to every woman I know :D

First time user so.....take this how you will. I know it says there is a learning curve but mine keeps leaking. I cannot remember the last time I woke up in the middle of the night with a mess like this....I even wore a pad just in case. I have taken it out many time to "dump" it to make sure it's not too full and I don't feel that is the case as to why it keeps leaking. I don't know but it sure is frustrating. I really want to love this product and make it work so I will probably try again next month and maybe continue after that. I really hope everyone else has a better first time experience!

Best Decision I Made
I've been using this product for over a year now and I can say that this is the best feminine hygiene product that I have ever used. Not gonna lie though the first time I used it was a little hard to insert but after replacing the first one it was easy sailing after that. I couldn't feel it, it was like it wasn't even there. I wasn't freaking out anymore about if I accidentally left it in too long. When wearing it there was no smell which was fantastic. Although it is a bit messy when removing it. Overall, I would recommend to anyone this product.

I might not be using this product the correct way but I followed all the instructions. I am not on a heavy flow and I am leaking over the cu but not filling the cup up. I do not like this cup for anything other than swimming. It is great to be an alternative to tampons. I might not just understand this product. But for each their own..

First time user
I am 31 years old and am using this product for the first time. I absolutely love them. After having children I haven't been able to use taping because they just don't feel right so I've been left using pads which are so inconvenient. I am so happy I gave these a try and won't use anything else.

I bought this on a whim just to try because of the 12 hour wear time. I work in an environment with only porta-potties which makes using tampons or pads a huge problem (can't find cardboard applicator tampons anymore either). Best whim ever. These are so comfortable and easy to use. It's so nice not to have to worry about changing a tampon and where to properly dispose of it. I was worried the first couple of days about leaks. Have not had any problems with leaks at all. Plus there is no irritation or dryness, and no pain when removing unlike with tampons! Will not ever go back to tampons. Thank you so much for a life changing product.

Never again will i use a pad or tampon
This product is life changing for women. I was informed of the instead Softcup by a good friend of mine. I'm 25 years old and I had never even heard of a Menstrual cup. I wish I would have known about these sooner. Every now and then if I do not have it inserted quite right there is slight leakage but totally manageable.

Awesome product. My boyfriend and I used soft cup during intercourse and we both could not feel a thing. It felt completely normal. We both could climax with no difficulty. No leakage during inter course or everyday activities. Wish I had known about this product a long time ago !

Softcup is a miracle!!
After getting into a relationship with a man who doesn't like having intercourse during my period I found an article online and one woman was raving about the Softcup for use during period sex. Also since having two 9 lb babies I have problems with tampons. Softcup has eliminated both of these problems! It's comfortable, stays in place, is more environmentally friendly and I can have intercourse during my period now. This is the best new product that I've found, I will start recommending it to all of my friends!

CHANGED MY LIFE!
I have never been a fan of pads or tampons and only just recently saw this product in my local store. I wasn't so sure at first, however, this product has changed my life. I wish I would've heard about this product sooner! #anewloyalcustomerafter1use

would be great in a smaller size.
I used one for 6 hours until I could feel it leaking. It had come out a little. I tried to tuck it behind my pubic bone again but it moved as soon as I stood up. :( I'd like to try them again if they ever make a smaller size.

need help !
I have seen video Instructions and yoU tube and bought A box to give it a try Because of all the good comments put went I'm inserting it in I'm doing something wrong because I'm leaking and it's my 2nd day and I'm getting frustrated

I used this product for the very first time and fell in love with it. It's an awesome product, very very easy to use, so convenient. Good bye tampons!!

great unless it gets stuck
I have used this product for about 4 months now and was really loving it. Then this month it started leaking after about 5 hours of wear. the last day I used it, it got stuck. took over 30 minutes to remove it. It was awful. Looked like a crime scene in my bathroom. I want to try it again but probably won't because it was very scary to not be able to remove it. I spoke to a close friend who is an OBGYN and she said it probably flipped somehow and that this is a common complaint with her patients. I'm not sure it's worth the risk of what I went through to remove it.

A Tale of Two Feminine Protection methods
I was at work and went to the bathroom and realized I was a bloody mess. I had to go to the store and replace my panties and buy yet another pack of emergency pads because I had gone thru all the ones I had. You would think after 3 decades of having a period, I would have mastered pad placement. The next day, I decided to try my hand with the remaining Insteads since it was the weekend. The insertion was simple and it was not detectable all day. It really helps you to get to know your body better. I could use the tiny, flat pantyliners that normally go mostly unused rather than the thick "pillows" I'm used to wearing. I can see myself just using about 4 of them total during my heaviest few days rather than 1 pad every couple of hours. Why am I even bothering with anything else? (I gave the rest of my pads to my teenaged daughter).

Long distance made easy
My man and I live states away from one another and whenever Id visit Id try to plan around my period and it was a hassle. Now with softcup my period does not rule me and I'm still able to be intimate with my honey with no mess and be comfortable! I love soft cup and it is extremely comfortable and great for active women such as myself! I no longer fear leakage while I work out or am on an adventure.

Finally a normal life again
I have a sensitive body. I used the same brand of tampons for 17 years. One day the packaging was different- now more absorbent and with natural cotton. Soon after I started getting bad bouts with BV. And dryness with sex. This began a three year nightmare of chronic BV infections every month :( my OBGYN eventually wrote me a prescription with 6 refills. At my wits end I did some research to see if there was something I was doing wrong or eating etc causing the BV found it was most likely the tampons. The chemicals that absorb can throw off PH and dry you out. Tried softcup. With the first month - no BV - one year later still not one recurrence of BV. And the dry sex went away too. Went for well women exam today- told my OBGYN - she loved them never heard of them called her other doc partner in my exam room to discuss. Wished someone had told them about says she sees a lot of patients with chronic BV and will start giving them a sample. Was so glad I told her. If we helped one lady today to avoid this horribly embarrassing situation - I am so happy. I did tell her you have to be super comfortable with your body and blood but still a better trade off than chronic BV

I wish I had discovered it years ago!!
I just found disposable Softcups at my local grocer and bought them out of curiosity. I had read a lot of good reviews and so far, Softcups lives up to those reviews! I love the 12 hour protection and how easy it is to use. I even texted my 26 year old daughter today to recommend them. Great job!
