I just bought Softcup reusable (for up to 1 cycle) cups, and put it in because I'm due to start my period today. I was worried that I'd feel it, because I've never been able to figure out the tampon thing, but I don't feel anything! If anything it feels good, kinda like it's pushing on my g-spot. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, if anyone has used this brand I'd like some reviews, because this brand isn't listed on this site. :) Thanks people!

FYI, despite what the instructions say, you can wash and re-use Instead soft cups for as long as you trust them -- which can be for as many cycles as you want.

My personal experience with them is that (unlike cups) flow clings to them so they're drippy and messy. I found it easiest to alternate two -- especially in public stalls where there wasn't a sink handy. But you'll need to bring in something to hold the used one until you can get it out to the sink. And you'll probably want some wet/damp paper towels for your hand too.

If Insteads work for you then GREAT! But if you decide you'd like to try a cup, use the size charts at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ or any of the others at the Community FAQ to pick one that you think would fit and suit you.

As for pressing on your G-spot, WOO HOO! I never felt it but I'm glad you do. Makes having your period more pleasurable! :o)

Thanks for all the info! I did notice that clinging problem yesterday, but since I will be at home when I empty them I don't see it being a problem. I used it all day yesterday, but I got paranoid that it would slip out while I was sleeping, lol, so I took it out for bedtime.
I am quickly becoming a fan of these odd contraptions though!

Aww- insteads were my gateway cup. :)

I liked them for quite a long time, then after one of my kids, they were odd shaped and I switched to other cup designs.

When I used them (it was before they marketed them for a whole cycle) I was able to use one for a few cycles without a problem.

I like them, but I had a couple leaks today. I just ordered a meluna in large and one in medium. I hope those will work better. :) other than the two minor leaks I'm SOLD!
