  • For me they actually worked pretty well. You have to wear a panty liner because if you cough they can leak. I would still use them if they weren't so messy to take out. The little cup spills on your hand when you remove it.

  • I haven't used the instead cup but use the Diva Cup, which is similar. I LOVE it. I am allergic to pads and tampons so when I discovered these it was a huge sigh of relief. I never have leaks, I only have to mess with it two times a day - first thing in the morning and right before bed. It is awesome. I think much less yuck to deal with than pads/tampons! I never had the sneeze-leak issue someone posted about the instead cup or the spilling into the hand.
