What is Softcup?

Softcup is a flexible disc shaped “cup” that is worn internally, around your cervix to collect, rather than absorb, menstrual flow. It’s made from non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, medical grade silicone and is completely safe when used as recommended.

Why should you try it?

Softcup is great for busy women, or women who just don’t want to have to think about changing a pad or a tampon every few hours. Athletes rave about how Softcup carries them through a long race. Travelers don’t leave home without it.

  • Softcup can be worn for up to 12 hours.
  • Softcup is comfortable—you can’t feel it once it’s inserted.
  • Softcup can be worn during swimming and sports.
  • Softcup eliminates menstrual odour, since menstrual flow isn’t exposed to air.
  • Softcup loves making love—you can wear Softcup during intercourse for mess-free sex on your period.
  • You can use one reusable Softcup for up to 3 cycles…saving you money and the environment
Softcup is Life-Friendly

You don’t have to change your routine just because you’re on your period.Softcup can be worn during all types of physical activity. Because it’s worn internally, and there are no strings, you can wear anything (or nothing at all) without worrying about revealing any trace of your period protection.

Softcup Loves Making Love

With Softcup, you and your partner can enjoy mess-free intercourse during your period, be sure to use extra lubrication and neither of you will even feel it’s there.

Softcup Keeps You ‘Fresh’

Menstrual odour is caused by menstrual fluid being exposed to air. Because Softcup holds menstrual fluid internally, it eliminates dampness and odour.

Softcup is Body-Friendly

Safety is important when it comes to your reproductive health. Reusable Softcup is made entirely of a hypoallergenic, non-toxic, latex-free, non-irritating material.

Softcup has never had a reported incidence of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). (Toxic Shock Syndrome) 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.

The Difference between Tampons and Softcup

Softcup does not change the body’s natural environment— Softcup does not alter the body’s pH levels, natural bacteria levels, or absorb the body’s moisture. Softcup is a perfect solution for women looking to maintain their bodies’ pH balance. Maintaining the body’s natural bacteria levels can help prevent infections, such as yeast infections. Softcup is comfortable and doesn’t cause the dryness or irritation that tampons and pads can.

When a tampon is inserted, it creates microscopic tears along the vaginal canal. Tampons can leave behind residual fibres and traces of bleach, dioxins and other residues from the cotton cultivation and tampon manufacturing processes. Softcup leaves the body just as it is—no micro-tears, no residues, no change in the body’s natural pH or bacteria levels.

That’s OK—most women experience that. Start your trial on a lighter flow day or at bedtime as you get to know how your body works with Softcup. You may want to wear a panty liner or pad to protect against leakage your first few times until you feel comfortable placing Softcup.

Wash your hands and relax. Sit on the toilet with your knees apart.

Hold Softcup so the bottom of the cup hangs down. Squeeze the opposite sides of the rim together.

Keeping the rim pressed together, insert Softcup completely into your vagina. Use your finger to push Softcup downward and back as far as it will go. It will slide into place under the cervix and behind the pubic bone. You can also twist the cup into place as shown in the video clip above.

When Softcup is inserted properly, you shouldn’t feel it.

If you feel something in the vaginal canal, the cup is probably not placed far enough inside you. Just remove and try again.

To remove Softcup, we recommend sitting on the toilet with your knees apart. Insert your finger into the vagina. Feel your pubic bone—the Softcup rim will be right behind it. Hook your finger under the rim. If you have trouble hooking your finger, just bear or push down with your pelvic muscles. Slowly pull Softcup out of your body keeping it horizontal and level.
