The Instead Softcup is not only a good option for period protection, but also is used by many women, who want to get pregnant. Initially, the Instead feminine protection cup is made to collect the menstrual flow during periods. It is inserted into vagina and worn just like a tampon. It stays in place and does not restrict your movements. That's why many women, who lead an active lifestyle prefer using the Instead Softcups during periods. You don not have to deal with wings or leakage, or the menstrual odor. The Instead Softcup offers up to 12 hours of protection, so you will need to change it less often.
Many women try to increase their chances of conception by lifting their legs or lying on their back to keep sperm where it needs to be. Like I mentioned above, the Instead Softcups are now also used for conception by many women. The idea is to trap semen closer to the cervix after intercourse. On the days when you are most fertile in the middle of your menstrual cycle, you insert the Instead Softcup and leave it in place for several hours or overnight. Thus you can expect that the sperm will have enough opportunity to meet the egg and you will succeed with conception.
