Exploring Reusable Menstrual Products: Choosing the Best Option for You
SochGreen® is an Indian brand that focuses on making reusable menstrual products for women. We offer an array of period products (menstrual cups, cloth pads, organic period panty and interlabial pads), and every menstruator can find something that fits their needs.
Q. How Should You Choose Your SochGreen Period Product?
SochCup by JuJu is a reusable menstrual cup made of medical-grade silicone. It is an internal period product that sits inside the vagina and collects period blood. Our cups are made in Australia with best quality material that makes it easy to pop open. We do not agree with the statement “One size fits all” as every body is different externally as well as internally. Our cups come in four different sizes: Model 1, 2, 3 and 4 and three different colors: Clear, blue and Pink.
1.1. Whom Do We Recommend This To?
Women who are comfortable with insertion. This does not mean only sexually active women or women who have given birth. Any woman who has used an internal period product like tampon before or has done enough research and is mentally prepared to use an internal period product can use the SochCup easily.
1.2. What Can It Be Used for?
Vaginal Discharge and Period Blood.
This cannot be used for postpartum discharge or lochia. Post delivery, a woman’s body is more prone to infections and internal products must be avoided.
1.3. Which Size Should You Buy?
- If you’re in your teens or under 30, we recommend the SochCup Model 1.
- If you have a low cervix, we recommend the SochCup Model 4.
- If you’re over 30 years of age, or have given birth, Model 2 is for you.
- And if you have a high cervix, we recommend the SochCup Model 3 for you.

Our reusable cloth pads can be used just like regular sanitary napkins. However, they are a safer, economical, and eco-friendly alternative to disposable sanitary pads. They have been designed keeping user comfort in mind. Just like one would change a disposable sanitary pad once every 6-8 hours, one would need to change the pads with the same frequency. They can be washed and reused at least 70 times. They are available from XS to XL sizes. Soch pads are available in two versions – Regular and Quick Dry. They are also offered in Petite and Regular sizes.

It is an external product and is to be used for added protection while using Period Panty or Cloth Pad. It is soft and absorbent and comes in two sizes – Small and Large. Given how useful these pads are, it’d be apt to say – great things come in small packages. Try them out!
