The post where I say vagina - Softcup Review

Hello my loves! Today instead of my usual It's the simple thing in life post I'm doing a review post for the Softcup product. But before I begin I must warn you that it will get messy (not really messy, but more like bloody) and if there are any guys reading this you might want to advert your eyes and runaway, the word vagina is mentioned a lot
Now let's begin, it's that time of month and I'm on my period- Ewwww I know, sorry TMI but what better time to talk about Softcup than now :)

About three months ago I was sent a month supply of Softcups to try out.
What is a Softcup?
It's a great option for us active women who find it uncomfortable to exercise with a pad or tampon, when that time of month comes around. 

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 completed safe when used as directed.

I've been able to use them for two months now. They've lasted that long because I just use them when it's time to go for a run or get my cardio on. But for you gals that have long runs these are perfect because they last for 12 hours. So no more worrying about where to change your next tampon or pad, we all know how long those bathroom lines can get.
Now this is not the first time I've had to insert something into my vagina - no pun intended!
For my birth control a few years back I was using the Nuvaring which means that for a year I was inserting a vaginal ring so I figured using a Softcup would be the same. Hmmm.. Won't lie girls, the first few times were a little bit messy. Just imagine a crime scene from Dexter - ha! When I mean messy I just mean that you need to get used to removing it, the first few times might be tricky but once you get the hang of it no need to worry, it took me about 3-4 days to master the Softcup removal.
I have been able to use the Softcup with no irritation and I don't feel it at all! In fact the first time I put it to use I forgot I had it and my husband had to remind me to remove it.
 I've also been able to go for my runs and do my cardio with no leaking. Just to be safe, the first time I used the Softcup I made sure to put on a panty liner just in case it leaked but I'm happy to say it's leak-free.
There are no funky odors and the Softcup even has a touch of pink.


Each Softcup is individually packaged which makes it perfect to carry around in your sport belt.

It's flexible which makes it easy to insert into your vagina.

Do I recommend the Softcup? Yes I do
It really is a great way to get your sweat on - remember no excuses. 
Plus It's also safe to use while having Sex! Haven't tried it myself but it's good to know, you never know when you need to get your groove thing on!

  3. I've used a Diva Cup for years and love it. No mess, so easy, and I swear my "flow" is lighter since using it.

    1. I've heard about the Diva Cup and am thinking about using it. It's especially perfect for the lighter flow reason :)

  4. While I was in Iraq someone told me about them and they did mention that it was messy but after you got used to it the mess went away. I would really try this and if I got the hang of it why not? too cool! thank you Karina!
