5-0 out of 5 stars I'll never use anything else ever again
If they ever stop making this product I am in serious trouble.I can never go back to using pads and tampons now that I have tried these.Once i got the hang of them, which did not take long, I felt cleaner, safer, and healthier wearing them than any other mentrul product I've tried.Another reviewer mentioned them being bad for heavy flow days, but I find that that's when they really shine.You avoid the bulk and messiness of pads, they can be worn a lot longer than tampons and come with no strings attached.I'm hooked!

2-0 out of 5 stars Something even better than instead is out there!
I can remember using Instead when it first came out but have trouble finding it in stores now. The only perk it has over what I use now instead of tampons is that it is intercourse-friendly.

I use a DivaCup--also sold as Moon Cups or Keepers. It--unlike Instead--is REUSEABLE! It is a cup you insert that's made from silicon (so it is non-irritating), and it lasts about TEN YEARS. I got it a year ago because it is so environmentally friendly (disposables create so much waste) and love it because I forget it's even there. Also, I don't have to worry about being 'stocked up' for my period. Keepers are made from natural rubber if you want to go even more eco-friendly, but I was afraid of an allergic reaction so I went with silicon. The ONLY drawback is that you can't wear it during sex.

Like the Instead Softcup, it doesn't absorb my body's natural lubricators, so my pH is nice and healthy, and the DivaCup holds a full ounce of blood--much more than a tampon.

If you like Instead, I think you would prefer a Diva Cup. And because it is better for the environment and cheaper ($30 or so for a ten-year supply of tampons anyone?) I just wanted to spread the word!!! No one asked me to do this and I'm not getting paid a penny! I just love the product.

3-0 out of 5 stars not for heavy flow days
It took a few times to get used to the insertion/removal, and I did feel a bit of irritation from the removal process since you have to feel around to get the edge of the cup to remove it.It was not too bad otherwise until I started to flow heavier. When the cup was full and I sat down, blood literally poured out of the cup.I was quite fortunate that I didn't get blood all over my clothes.As one might imagine, removing the cup was very messy and there was really no way to avoid getting blood all over my hand.

I would recommend using a tampon for heavier flow, but these are fine if your flow is lighter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
I have been using them for nearly 3 yrs now. It did take a little getting used to but after I figured out how to insert it right I have not had any trouble and I LOVE them.

For those wanting a tip or 2...
I insert mine when it is wet. I wash it with warm water and leave it damp. I usualy do this in the shower. Squat and insert folded sideways, then twist the edge slightly so it folds over the cervix. Then check to be sure it has covered the cervix (my biggest errors occoured when I didn't check). Then push it as far back as you can - this will prevent leaking and keep it from feeling like it will fall out. Kinda a long process compared to tampons but you don't have to think about it after that.
I don't bother to replace it except when I get my morning shower. Go to the bathroom as usual through the day and bear down. The seal will break enough for the blood to be expelled and you don't have to do anything else special.

One of the best parts about this device is that you can have sex w/ it in... but I only recomend it durring lighter days b/c more adventurous sex may cause it to dislodge and leak. Sex can really help ease cramps. ;)

5-0 out of 5 stars I've found something to use INSTEAD!
I stumbled across this product online and saw many reviews before I had a chance to try it.I was pleasantly surprised.It worked great for me!

The only time the softcup leaked was when I was going to the bathroom and ready to change it anyway.Otherwise, I forgot I was wearing it.I even did some strenuous workouts, including lots of squats and ab work with no leaks!

Unlike tampons, this product works great for a heavy or light flow, so I don't have to worry if I'm using enough or too much protection.The softcup also works well for a thicker flow that tampons normally don't absorb well.

As for dealing with the mess, it is something that might take getting used to.I would NOT want to change the softcup in a public restroom.At home, I have flushable wet wipes available by the toilet, and feel they are a necessity to clean up any overflow that might be on your hand after the softcup is removed.

I love INSTEAD.I'm wondering why I didn't hear about it sooner. ... Read more
