Softcup Feminine Protection Cups
You won't even know it's there. A proven alternative to pads and tampons. Offers up to 12 full hours of protection during your period. Because Instead holds rather than absorbs menstrual fluid, you should be able to wear it twice as long as a tampon up to a maximum of 12 hours. Instead has had extensive toxicology, biocompatibility and microbiological laboratory and human clinical testing. All results support its safety. Instead is non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and safe when used as directed. Made in Canada.
How To Use Instead: 1. To insert, squeeze the opposite sides of the rim together. 2. Insert Instead completely into the vagina. 3. Instead molds itself to your unique internal shape, creating a personal fit. 4. To remove Instead, simply hook your finger under the rim and slowly pull. See enclosed insert for more complete product information and instructions for use.
Do not use Instead if you are using an intrauterine device (IUD), as there is risk of dislodging, displacing or removing the IUD by pulling on the IUD string when removing Instead. If you have ever had Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), do not use Instead or any other internally worn products. Maximum wear time is twelve (12) hours. Instead must be changed after 12 hours. Never reuse Instead, since doing so may expose you to the risk of vaginal infection. Immediately following childbirth, miscarriage, or termination of pregnancy, consult your physician before using Instead. Instead is not a contraceptive and does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases. If you or your sexual partner develop burning, itching, pain, or swelling in the genital area or discomfort with urination, discontinue using all internal protection and contact your physician. If you have problems removing Instead, call 1-800-INSTEAD (467-8323) or you can contact your physician.
