Green your period!! Reusable Softcup provides 12-hour, reusable period protection that can be reused for one entire menstrual cycle.
- It’s not reusable like a menstrual cup. It’s not really as ecological as the menstrual cup since you do throw it away at every cycle but it does produce less waste than tampons and pads. It’s healthier and cheaper since you can use 1 cup up to one cycle. You would need 12 cups a year, they cost $2.50/pc = $30/year!
Please note: softcup is not recommended if you are wearing an IUD.
+ You can have sex with it! it is recommended to empty it short before intercourse (in case it’s full, no need to explain why :) but this is not a contraceptive method!!
What is a Softcup?
Reusable Softcup is a durable, flexible, reusable cup that can be worn for up to 12 hours and reused throughout one menstrual cycle.
Which size to choose?
Instead soft cup has a flexible circular rim which is approximately 7cm in diameter. When compressed for insertion, instead is about the same size as a tampon – approximately 1-2cm wide and 9cm long. One size fits nearly all women for excellent leakage protection, even on heavy days.
Why use Softcup?
Reusable Softcup is great for busy women, eco-minded women, or women who just don’t want to have to think about changing a pad or a tampon every few hours. Reusable Softcup helps you reduce menstrual waste, since you can use and discard just one Softcup per period.
What material is it since it’s not medical grade silicone like menstrual cups?
Reusable Softcup is made of medical grade elastomer and polyethylene material. It has been cleared by the FDA and is the same material as is used in catheters and baby bottle nipples. It contains no latex, silicone, phthalates, Bisphenol-a (BPA) nor dioxins. It contains no residual fibers, bleach, pesticides, carcinogens nor polycarbonates (PCBs).
In more than 10 years and 120 million Softcups sold, Softcup has never had a reported incidence of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is believed to be caused by the toxin-producing strains of the bacterium Staphylococcus Aureus. Population studies suggest that the risk of TSS is related to tampon absorbency. The higher the tampon absorbency, the higher the risk of contracting TSS. Unlike tampons, Softcup is non-absorbent, and does not change the bacteria levels naturally present in the body.
How to use the Instead Soft cup?
Now, trying-to-conceive (TTC) couples have discovered a new application for the Softcup – as a fertility aid! So how are women using the safe, hypo-allergenic Softcup to increase their chances of conceiving a baby? Easy! Instead of inserting the Softcup during their periods, trying-to-conceive couples are using the Softcup following lovemaking to help pool and hold sperm around the cervix! Alternately, semen can be directly deposited into the Softcup reservoir and inserted directly into the vagina and around the cervix.
