So tell me about softcups for period
 
I didn't know where to post this so please excuse me if this isn't the best spot...

Please tell me about softcups.

three biggest questions

- how much liquid does it hold? My diva cup holds 1.5 fl oz I can't imagine it hold as much.

- Can you really have sex with it?

- Is there really any reason you need to throw it out after a week besides not being able to boil it?

I have not seen much conversation about them here. A reusable cup is much better I'd say. =D Oh I've never used them myself, although I do have and use several different brands of reusable cups.

I loved them before I got my iud. you can use them multiple cycles. Never tried sex. And I found they were more f a barrier than a cup.

I used them TTC (to hold all the valuable stuff in!) To me, they were much more difficult than a cup to insert. And I agree that they don't hold as much, so they create more of a barrier than actually holding much. And I see no reason why you couldn't have sex while using one- I've heard that you can, but have never tried it myself. Sorry I don't have much more to offer.

I love them! It took me a couple tries to get it in right but now I'm a pro. It sits all the way up under your cervix, not low like the diva cup.

1) I haven't measured how much liquid it holds but on heavy days I have to 'dump' it every 6 hours.

2) Yes, you can have sex with it in but I wouldn't recommend that on wavy days because it could cause spillage. Medium and light days are no problem.

3) I rotate with 2 per cycle. I take one out and insert another and then I'll wash that one out let air dry so it's ready for the next time I need to change it. I use them for a couple cycles and then toss. You need to make sure and clean the 'rim' with a qtip because there is a crease where the rim and clear plastic meets.
