I've used these for two cycles, no luck so far. But when you take 'em out (this maybe TMI) you can see they definitely do keep the extras up there. :P So I'll stick it out along with my CBEFM until I get my BFP.

My softcups arrived yesterday so I used one after sex last night and it kept everything in. Fantastic. I'm still on lows with my CBFM but wanted to try one before highs and peaks so I know I'm fitting it properly. It's extremely easy. You literally just sqeeze the sides and push it in. Hubby was so good too, he even suggested that I place a pillow under my bum to keep me in the right position and brough me a glass of water whilst I stayed lying down.

It was a little messy to remove though so I wouldn't use one for my period. However after all your positive reviews here about the moon cup and the diva cup I am definitely going to try them out for my period. They just sound less invasive if you know what I mean. You know how with tampons when you have a light flow and when you try to remove one and it doesn't have anything much on it they are sometimes a little uncomfortable to remove? Sorry, too much info there lol.

Thanks for all the info girls.

I ordered some online yesterday so should be here before Im due to ovulate next Friday

Ok scrap the above, the postman came when I was typing that and brought them (along with my new BBT woo!) and NOWAY is that gona fit where its supposed to go!! How do you know its in far enough? I searched for a video on youtube and it said it has to be 'hooked' round the cervix, I don't check my cervix every month, so what if mines isn't able to be hooked onto?!

They are huge and I was shocked at how big they are too but you just push two opposite sides together and insert length ways. You shouldn't feel it when it's in properly so that's how I gauged it. It was very easy to insert especially after sex as, sorry for too much information but, you are pretty wet then what with your own juices and the other halves semen. It really is simple.

I just can't wait for them to arrive - need to try something new as what we're doing clearly not working!! Not going to be ovulating for couple weeks though. Thats problem with trying to get pregnant, such a short blimming short time frame!!

Look at this whole thread, bb put some videos up to show you more about them. Also everyone has a place for them to hook on to. It doesn't sit in there the way you might think. I'd give em a try. Good luck!!

Just wanted to update......I just used my Diva Cup for the first time for "keeping the soup in the bowl" purposes and so far so good!! I have it in right now and can't feel a thing. When we were done BDing I just put it in and got up......and there is NO leakage!! Wonderful idea! I'm sold! No more worrying about spilling the precious swimmers!!
