I just wanted to let you know Softcup changed my life!
I'm a 52 year old peri-menopausal woman experiencing dreadful periods—unexpected and often heavy. I hate pads and tampons, and they weren't doing the job alone. With all the other unpleasant effects of aging, tampons didn't always stay in and on heavy days could not provide enough protection. I was desperate.
At Softcup, we want to celebrate the courage of women all over the world who face hardships and challenges that test the strongest of human resolve. Each month of this year, we will profile a woman who “stopped at nothing” to make a difference in the world. We kick off our series with two Somalian women—Dr. Hawa Abdi and Edna Adan. Both women stand as symbols of resilience, empowerment and a hope for a healthier and more stable world.
Wow! What a fabulous creation. Thank you! At the age of 40 I never thought I would ever be comfortable with my periods. Always dreaded that time of the month. This thing is wonderful! I don't feel it. Easy to use. No worries about carrying a tampon on pad in my pocket or bag anymore. During family outings and activities, I now have one less thing to worry about. And it doesn't leak (and I've had 3 kids vaginally, so I was concerned). I just want to say thank you for making this product.
Endometriosis is one of the most common gynecological issues seen in the primary care office. It is described as a condition that occurs when endometrial cells grow outside the uterus. Endometrial cells normally grow inside the uterus, lining the uterine wall. During a woman’s menstrual cycle, this lining of cells (called the endometrium) responds to the body’s hormones by growing and thickening to prepare for the possibility of a fertilized egg. If no fertilized egg implants, the lining is shed during menstruation and thins as hormone levels drop.
