Fertility Aid - Instead Softcups??

Hi all,
I saw this online and wondered if you have heard of this. The reviews sort of astounded me. So many couples that have been TTC long-term were PG in a month with these.
I am reluctant to keep spending money on all these gadgets and tests and such but the reviews seemed convincing.
What are your thoughts??

Hi! Ruth is right, I did use the instead cups. I don't know if they helped; but I do know I conceived twice while using them. :) Since there is no real risk in using them, I don't see any reason not to try them. Good luck!!

Paula,
How did you use them? Did you insert after BD? Did he ejaculate in you or in the cup itself? Hope it isn't too personal to ask.

We used them after BD. I still laid there with my hips up; but, before I got up to walk around, we put the cup in. I left it there for hours. You can't feel it once it's in.

On the FF site, there are a few women who have used these and have conceived. I tried them this cycle so time will tell. It is less than pleasant getting them out but what the hey, all in the name of ttc right? I asked how long to keep them in? I was told, by one lady who is currently pg, to keep them in for the maximum time of 12 hours. I didn't keep mine in that long but I did for 8 hours. I think it's worth a shot.

I used these for the first time this cycle and they were a huge irritant! I am praying I don't end up with an infection. Not a fan!!! (Well, if I get a BFP I will be but for now, not a fan!)
