Why hello there!
I know that I have been MIA lately, and I apologize. Between school, my little princesses (when they want to be), and everything else life has been throwing at me I took out the one thing I had control over. Well school is coming to an end, and with the current weather I have been going stir crazy and need to give myself something to do again. This time I plan on taking things a little slower and making sure that I get you the best reviews possible and have enough time to complete each one. With that being said I will start off with a review of a product that I bought myself and fell in love with!
Now before you start reading I am going to warn you that this post is mainly for our female viewers, and is not for the faint of heart. This post is about a product that women can use when their Aunt Flow comes to visit, so I'm sure you get the idea.
Since having my babies I have been looking for a better way to take care of my monthly visitor, I have tried different brands of tampons with no luck. My flow is very irregular and I have a major problem finding products that will last longer than an hour during the first few days of my period. A couple months ago while in school I had a HUGE leak, something that has not happened to me since high school. I was mortified and became determined to find something to fix my problems and give me piece of mind when I am out and about.
The product I found will not only save you time, but will save you money as well. This magical product that I keep going on and on about is called a Soft Cup. Soft Cup is a small flexible cup that fits around your cervix. Unlike tampons that absorb and can cause TSS, the Soft Cup collects your menstrual flow. When I first heard of this product my first thoughts were not all that pretty, but after my recent "accident" I decided enough was enough and that I should just give it a shot.
Soft cup is not only more eco-friendly than traditional tampons or pads, but like I mentioned earlier using it does not lead to things like Toxic Shock Syndrome because it does not have the germ harboring fibers that other products contain. Also they are more comfortable than a tampon because they do not make you feel dry on light days, and hold more on your heavy days (up to 12 hours of wear) and they have both disposable and reusable versions. Here's the kicker, you can also wear Soft Cup during sex! What other product lets you do that?
Okay, so now that you have heard some of the good stuff about what this product is capable of, does it really work? Yes! While mine typically do not last a full 12 hours (my periods are extremely heavy for the first few days), it does last significantly longer than a tampon. The way Soft Cup explains how long it will last for an individual is that it will typically last twice as long as a tampon if not longer. Mine will last about 3-4 hours on a bad day and up to 10 on a good day. Even if I do not get 12 hours out of each one I am still saving money and saving the land fill.
Soft Cup is very easy to use, and can be a little messy the first few times you use it, but once you get the hang of it they truly are little life savers. You can find out more about how to use Soft Cup here. Since using Soft Cup I have noticed significantly less cramps, and an overall feeling of security that I won't leak everywhere I go, and it doesn't take up very much room in my purse.
So you want to try before you buy? Well Soft Cup is a wonderful company and knows that you will love their products so they offer a sample pack of two Soft Cups and great information about their product for only $2.50 shipped! You can get this great offer on their website here.
I love this product and if it's something you are willing to try I'm sure it is something you will love as well! Make sure to stay tuned for plenty more reviews! Thank you for staying with us!
