This is a post only for the girls (guys feel free to read if you must but I'm warning you - it's gonna get girly and not in a good "pillow fight" kinda way… more like a "I've got cramps and pass the chocolate ice cream" kinda way… yeah. That. Thanks for swinging by.)
So back to our "Ladies Night" discussion.
Recently I was invited to give Instead SoftCup a whirl.
What exactly is SoftCup?
Well it looks like this:
And it's made for our 'favorite' time of the month.
I know. It looks strange. I was a bit apprehensive at first but I followed the directions and gave it a shot.
The first time I tried it, it was a little tricky getting the thing in but I did it.
By the second time, I felt like a pro. And I have to tell you, I loved it. Once in, I never felt it. It was able to hold up for my heavy flow and it didn't leak while I slept in it overnight.
It also held up while I ran and that's always a concern for me. Especially on long runs and, uh, my "heavy" days.
Easy to use
Can be worn up to 12 hours - yippee!
They say it can be worn during sex (I didn't try this but that's only because I'm married for 16 years and eh, "I had a headache.")
Super comfortable (didn't feel a thing!)
Great during running
Not linked to TSS
Doesn't cause irritation
Takes a try or two to get the hang of inserting it
Can be messy when removing it but there are great tips at the website!
I definitely would recommend giving this a shot. I used one or two of these a day rather than several tampons like usual.
Have you ever tried this product?
