Disc or Cup? Softcup has got you covered
When you hear the word, menstrual cup, chances are you have heard of one before.
On almost every social media platform there is someone who is talking about her experience with a menstrual cup or you see it advertised on your news feed.
If I say Menstrual disc, you may not know what it looks like or how it works. Your clue is in the name; A menstrual disc is a flexible ring with a catch that sits at the base of the cervix in a place called the vaginal fornix, ever heard of a vaginal fornix? Don’t worry – most of us haven’t. It’s the widest part of the vagina with fewer nerve endings so you won’t even feel it when it’s in place.
The menstrual disc is unique in shape and design, its insertion and removal are completely different from the insertion and removal of the menstrual cup. Most say it is much easier, in fact, the menstrual disc is super user friendly and a great introduction to the world of reusable menstrual products. 95 % of first-time users get a leak-free insertion and will experience a comfortable fit on their very first try.
You may agree with me that it is often a necessity to use different period products during certain days while we menstruate. The same goes for reusable period protection. Somedays, using a disc will be more convenient than using a cup, on a heavy flow day the disc is super easy to empty in a public bathroom and offers you a longer wear time. yes, your disc will fill up just the same as a cup would but when it comes to emptying your disc. It’s a completely different experience. Hands-free emptying saves you the daunting task of removing, rinsing, and reinserting your cup in a public bathroom stall. When you use a disc you only have to remove and empty your disc in the comfort and privacy of your own space later that day. here is how that works…
While both products are great to have, what one can do while wearing a menstrual disc, we can’t do while wearing a menstrual cup.
This is why we have created the perfect introduction kit where you get the Softcup Menstrual cup and a free menstrual disc. The Softcup menstrual cup has the perfect curve for your internal feminine form. Once inserted, your body temperature warms up this cup which then moulds itself to your personal fit.

Softcup was designed by women for women with the intention to provide the most comfortable fit.
