Softdisc (formerly Instead Softcup) is the leak-proof, swim-proof, sleep-proof alternative to tampons, pads, and menstrual cups. Easy-to-use and comfortable to wear, Softdisc gives you 12 hours of freedom during your period.

Q: How well does it work if you have heavy flow? Will I have to replace it more often than the 12 hours indicated?

submitted by MrsTorres99 - 6 years ago
  • A: I'd say yes but it all depends on you. I usually change it every 8 hours on my heavier days and so far it seems to work. Or you can just empty it more frequently without changing it. Hope this helps because these are worth the try.

    submitted byCristy - 6 years ago
  • A: If you bear down you can “empty” it without removing it, whenever you go to the bathroom on heavy days. You just have to make sure it’s in place again after.

    submitted byJane - 5 years ago
  • A: OMG. Do not reuse these. Cristy says to "empty it ... without changing it." No no no! From the instructions, "Never reuse Instead, since doing so may expose you to the risk of v*ginal infection." (this form won't let me use that word with the "a" in it). FWIW, I use them for 12 hours even on my heaviest days. If they are very full, though, and your muscles push it out of place (like with a sneeze) they could shift so that they leak ... so if you're super heavy, you might want to change it more often. I have only had one leak (because of a sneeze) once in the ~15 years I've been using them.

    submitted byAM in California - 5 years ago
  • A: On my heaviest day, mine leak every single time, so I used to wear a panty liner as backup. Now, I use organic cotton tampons on my one heavy day/night so I don't have to worry about leakage. When I'm not home, I don't want to think about changing these in a public restroom since you should wash your hands BEFORE removing & inserting a new one. Don't get me wrong; every other day of my period, I love these!

    submitted byDoc - 5 years ago
  • A: On my heavy days I change it every 8 hours. Still way better than every 3-4 with tampons & pads. If you do not insert it all the way in it will leak. A lot of negative reviewers say it leaked even though they are confident they put it in correctly. You cannot just stick it in and up behind the P bone. The best way I know how to describe it is, push it all the way in until it feels like your V swallowed it. People also complain that it is too hard to remove. It is if you do not push it out with your muscles. You have to bear down like you are pushing to go to the bathroom. This will empty some if the menses too so its less messy when you pull it out. Keep it level and pull out, almost upwards. Using nitrile or latex gloves and baby wipes helps with cleanup. (I am disappointed in Target for not allowing the V or P word to be used. Its a body part, not inappropriate language.)

Q: These are not reusable, correct?

submitted by MadamMuah - 6 years ago
  • A: NO. These are NOT reusable. No. No. No. Emma3457 is giving BAD info. From the packaging, "Never reuse Instead, since doing so may expose you to the risk of v*ginal infection." (the form won't let me use that word with the "a" in place and says my answer contains inappropriate language, haha.)

    submitted byAM in California - 5 years ago
  • A: Correct. But people reuse them on the same day.

    submitted byEmma3457 - 6 years ago
  • A: Softdisc is not reusable. After 12 hours of wear, remove the disc, dispose of it, and only insert a new one.

Q: It says you can use them during s*x, will the guy feel it inside you?

submitted by Interested - 5 years ago
  • A: Softdisc is safe to wear during intercourse and comfortable for both you and your partner because, the disc sits in the vaginal fornix and collects menstrual fluid directly from the base of the cervix. As a result of that, the vaginal canal is free of obstruction. The vagina expands and elongates during arousal as well as intercourse, so if the disc is inserted properly, neither partner should be able to feel the disc.

Q: can you wear this when riding a horse without it leaking or spilling? I have to do at least 2-3 horses a day and my pad always ends up tearing.

submitted by se - 4 years ago
  • A: Yes! We actually have many users who ride horses and use Softdisc with success! You just need to make sure the disc is in place fully covering the cervix.

    Brand expert

Q: Is it easy to remove as well as inserting it.

submitted by Dee - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi Dee! Both insertion and removal of the disc is much easier than it may seem. To insert Softdisc, you'd pinch the disc and push it down and back into the vaginal fornix. For removal, with a clean finger you'd just bear down a bit, reach in and pull the disc out. We have tons of information available on our website and your discs always come with a set of instructions. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our awesome Customer Support team at hello@flexfits.com. :)

This product is the most amazing product ever!!! I have heavy periods, filling up a tampax ultra tampon in about 2 hours on my heavy days. This is intimidating because of the size, but trust me when i say its amazing. Everyone saying it doesnt work, probably didnt position it right. If you fart it is going to leak, it literally says in the directions for handless dumping, to push like youre pooping. I wear this all day and push when i go to the bathroom and keagle it back in and im set. It doesnt leak throughout the day unless its full or you put too much pelvic pressure on it. Overall an amazing experience and will be repurchasing.

This product is awful. Leaking like crazy and had to have my partner remove it as it had suctioned cup against my cervix. Was so painful and embarrassing to remove once it was stuck.

I never thought I’d like discs but I love them! I’m never going back to tampons. 12 hour wear. No leaks. No odor. Easy to insert and remove. I don’t feel a thing. Plus, I’m not sure if these discs have anything to do with it but since using them I haven’t had any cramps.

I absolutely Love this product!!! I Will NOT use anything else for female hygiene...I've had 5 children, Terrible periods since I started as a young girl and very very irregular bleeding. It seemed like nothing worked, I ruined underwear and clothing a lot, I was always embarrassed and ashamed, until I tried these softcups! When they 1st came out (different design on box) but glad they stayed with the purple wrapping btw. I Got scared when I could no longer find them "everywhere" but glad that they are exclusively at Target! Anyway... I was pleasantly surprised to find they held more "contests" then another products. When it was a lighter day or spotting i didn't have change it frequently(every half hour to hour like other products) I did NOT have to worry about falling out or leaks (unless i didn't realize it was a "super heavy" day.) it would hide any odor while in & even ease my cramps as well. And I never had to worry about leaks even when I tried to keep up or play sports with my boys. I could swim with out fear. I could do my martial arts in my white uniform without fear! I could live a normal life "during that time" FINALLY! THIS PRODUCT WAS LITERALLY A LIFE CHANGER IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE!!! THANK YOU SOFTCUP! The only issue I ran into is if I needed to change it out in public (during heavy flow days)it got pretty messy trying to dump the "contents" in the toilet without getting my hands completely bloody i found it was difficult with a full cup. (YES FULL) plus instead of putting in a new cup I tried to use for the full 12 hours and rinse it, if I were home trying to save on cost. definitely couldn't do that in public so I absolutely had to use the disposable feature and get a new 1 every time while out and about. The cost is amazing the cheapest costing product out there literally! $15 for 12 disposable discs!!! Sometimes it could last me 2 cycles! Again I can't say it enough I LOVE SOFTCUPS!!! Thank You sooo much for making this product! Sincerely a Woman who really needed this amazing product!

This brand works so much better for me than Flex. No leaking even on heavy flow days. With Flex I was using so many backup pads, it just wasn’t worth it. But SoftDisc has been great. Easy to insert, less mess. 12 hours of comfort and way less worry or bother than tampons and other discs.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Okay okay so I've been hesitant to just on the mensural cup trend because it just sounds messy and stiff and who wants to complicate that time of the month anymore than it already is right? I started with these because they were disposable and I wouldn't have to worry about any work mishaps and they looked smaller. They are much smaller than the mensural cups that are reusable. I barely feel them when they are in place! Huge fan

J - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
These types of products aren’t for you if you’ve got hot girl stomach issues. They are meant to empty when you contract—meaning, if you need to fart, it’s likely going to leak. I followed the instructions.. they worked okay sometimes, but I ordered period underwear instead from a different retailer because “sometimes” is not good enough.

I love these!!! When I start spotting I put it in and change it daily. I like the reassuance that I won't get my period and have blood on my clothes. If you bear down when using the bathroom it breaks the seal and tips so it empties into the toilet then do a kegal to put it back in the correct position....I only change them completely when in the shower. I have been using these for a year now!! I only have to wear a pad at night on my heaviest days but that's more of a reassuance thing. I will NEVER go back to tampons!!!

There is definitely a learning curve! Ihaven't worn tampons since giving birth and I love these! I recommend wearing a pad or period panty the first month. I just finished my 3rd cycle and I'm more confident. My heavy days I have to remember to"dump' more often, but I also wear period panties and no troubles or worries.

I waited several months to write this review to make sure I had the full picture. Have been using tampons & pads most of my life for a very heavy flow. These are definitely a game changer! I do need to “self empty” throughout the day on heavy days but it’s easy and it stays in place through that. It takes some getting used to but will never go back to smelly annoying tampons. I don’t feel it at all but it is a bit uncomfortable for me when I take it out. I cramp less than a/tampons which I could always feel. I love that they’re disposable and with how messy it is on take out I don’t think I’d like the reusable ones. Also love it can stay in through a shower bath etc without having to replace. It has really improved my life during my period!

Something has changed with this product. It’s very uncomfortable and leaks. It’s impossible to wear for a couple of hours. Feels constant pressure on my bladder from the hard plastic material.
1 reply from Softdisc team - 7 months ago
Hi Mia - Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you are experiencing discomfort and leaking while using Softdisc! Rest assured that nothing has changed with the product itself, but if you are experiencing bladder pressure or discomfort it sounds like the disc may not be sitting in quite the right spot. Softdisc is meant to sit in the widest part of the vagina called the vaginal fornix. It's right below the cervix and there are fewer nerve endings there making it the best spot for unreal period comfort. We'd love to help troubleshoot with you - please email us at hello@softdisc.com!

After 20 years of using primarily tampons, these have changed my life. A full 12 hours of wear without worry of leaks or odors - has been especially great on long workdays and travel days. I could not be happier with this product. If you have leaks, it's probably not properly inserted, but once you figure it out, I think it's pretty easy to tell when it's positioned correctly. Removal took a little practice but has gotten *much* easier with time. This is the best period product ever!!!! Can't live without it now that I've seen the light. I wish these were more widely available. Thank you, Target!

If you used to use the “Instead cup” this is the same. Instead was bought by the Flex company and rebranded the cup from “Instead” to “Softcup.” This option is cheaper than the black “Flex Cup” that is also sold and is made by the same company.
