Whoa! Could've fooled us.

Do you have horrible cramps during your period?

Do you feel so bloated you can hardly fit in your jeans?
                                                                                                  (picture source)

Raise your hand if you would try anything to get rid of those miserable unpleasant cramps and fit in your jeans while on your period?

Looks like everyone.

 No one in their right mind likes to hurt. I use to think cramping was just part of being on your period. I always had them, sometimes I would just take pain medication to get rid of them. But for me as soon as I removed the tampon, I didn't have that cramping feeling. So when I learned about Instead Softcups, I was willing to try them....I thought what could it hurt. If I didn't like them I could always go back to using tampons.
But if they helped my cramps just a little I would be happy. 

I know I have said over and over Instead Softcups have changed my periods. The only regret I have is not finding out about these sooner.

When I first started using the menstrual cups  I noticed immediately my cramping wasn't nearly as bad as when I used tampons. And now 7 months later I can honestly say I hardly cramp at all. I don't have to take pain medication anymore to relieve the pain.

So if you are one of those women that's still  unsure for whatever reason you have, doesn't the fact that you could change how your periods are make you wanna try them?

Put aside the fact that you may get a drop of blood on your hand

and if you can't you could always get some of these 

Or just do this and go on about your day

 Put aside what your friends, or husband may think. It's YOUR PERIOD, and it doesn't have to be miserably painful. 

Don't be afraid to try something new. It may just change your periods for the better. Then you will be able to share with your girlfriends how they have changed YOUR period.  : )

How Comfortable is it? And how long can it be worn?

Are Instead Softcups comfortable?

I have had a few women ask me this.

Simple short answer, YES.
Let me first start off by saying when I first bought these at CVS, I remember getting to the van and as soon as all kids were buckled up I had to open the box and check them out. I was really excited. Until...

I saw this...

Ok, I'm not going to lie, my first thought was...There's no way!

Its huge.

How could this ever be comfortable.

And how in the world am I going to get it in. Probably what you may be thinking right now.
Well you insert it by pinching it like this,
makes you feel better, right?

Well I'm here to tell you they are comfortable.

Fact is when inserted properly they are so comfortable you don't even feel its there.

These are far more comfortable than any tampon that I have ever tried. And I have tried most. :) Of course the first few times you try the softcup it may take awhile. It did for me. It is a learning experience.

 Remember like with anything new it takes time.

And trust me It's so worth it. When I say these have changed my periods they really have.

How long can Instead Softcups be worn?

Up to 12 hours.  Now that doesn't mean on heavy days you can wear it for 12 hours. Usually for me its about 8 hours for heavy day. But we are all different and its trial & error. Just like with anything else. But it surely beats changing tampons every 2-4 hours.

You can also wear them overnight, in the pool, on the soccer field, riding your bike, any sport or activity.

I personally love that I don't have to watch the clock so much. I can go to the grocery store, library and post office and not have to worry about it.

When we went to the beach, they were a lifesaver or should I say vacation saver? :)

If you have any questions at all please leave me a comment or you can visit Instead Softcup.

**Over the next month I'm going to go over all the ways Softcups have changed my periods.
