Hi! I've been using Softcup for the past few months, and as a result, I've become so much more comfortable in my body. Having been conditioned to believe that menstrual blood, and my body in relation to my cycle, was dirty and unclean, it's been freeing to be in contact with everything and realize the miracle of the female body. I was afraid to try Softcup because I thought menstrual blood was gross, but the price and safety of Softcup compared to tampons was too good to pass up. I am SO happy I chose Softcup! I wanted to say thank you.

"Being a girl with Endometriosis, "accidents" have always been an issue. I spent a lot of time missing school, work and social events due to being afraid of having an embarrassing moment and having to carry a change of pants with me. Nothing ever worked right and I was constantly on birth control trying to avoid my body simply being itself. I've been using Softcup for 5 cycles now and I don't know how I ever made it without them! I love not having to worry and not being scared of TSS when I sleep.

My job can be intimidating to men, especially when I’m in a potential dating situation with them.

Unlike the majority of my friends, I have never been an individual who spends a great deal of time on style or fashion. My attire is generally simple. Today, for example, I am wearing a pair of black Chuck Taylor’s to go with my black pants and black shirt. I feel like I’m channeling Johnny Cash.

You might be wondering: What does this have to do with Softcup? Good question.
