I have been a super plus tampon user ever since I started my period in 7th grade (I am 27 now) and, even then, I was changing them every 3 hours or so. I discovered Softcup about 2 years ago and even though I experience some leakage, it is SO much better than a tampon.
During my time running for Miss Montana, I knew my cycle could possibly ruin the whole bit. I made it through the first half of the week all right, but when it came to competition time, my cycle started. Oh boy.
To Whom It May Concern:
I have never emailed a company about their product before, mostly because the effect on my life hasn't really been substantial enough to warrant an email. However, a few friends of mine introduced me to Softcup at the beginning of the summer this year. And it has totally changed how my menstrual cycle affects me!
I am happy to let your company know that I am 38 years of age and have been using this product since the age of 20! I saw a late night infomercial and it changed my life. A group of women were speaking when one of the ladies said something that caught my attention.
I wanted to let you know how amazing Softcup is! I'll admit I was skeptical to try it, but for $8 I figured why not? I came across Softcup online, while looking up ideas about having sex on your period. I'm not usually a fan of the idea, but my boyfriend had been away and he was only in town for a few days...of course those few days were during my period! Needless to say, I was desperate. I read the tips and that the first time or two you might get it wrong, feel it, or make a mess. Let me tell you - I got it in the first time, didn't feel it at all, and there was no mess.
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.
