Softcup: The Period Revolution

One blogger puts Softcup—a period protection alternative that is neither pad nor tampon—to the test.

The biggest advantage of the Softcup for me, though, is the health factor. In more than 10 years of business—and over 120 million Softcups sold—there's never been a reported case of toxic shock syndrome. Now that's something I feel safe wearing. With the health risks off my mind, my next decision is which Softcup to try next month: the disposable ones I tested or a reusable one I can wash and wear again.

Softcup® is a flexible little cup that is worn internally, around your cervix. It collects, rather than absorbs menstrual flow. It can be worn for up to 12 hours so it’s 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.
