Softcups


I just ordered these from www.early-pregnancy-tests.com, and was wondering if any of you ladies have tried these? The reviews I read are really good! they say they have gotten pregnant after using these in the 1st month!

Softcup fertility success stories are now so commonplace that Instead has filed for FDA clearance to officially market the Softcups as a conception aid.

Better yet, Softcups are "body friendly and body safe." They have been tested for biocompatibility and are hypoallergenic. In the over ten years that the product has been on the market, there have been no reported incidences of Toxic Shock Syndrome. Instead Softcups are made entirely of hypoallergenic, non-toxic, non-irritating, non-absorbent materials that have been used for more than 20 years in the health care profession. And the Softcups have no irritating latex.

The Softcup by Instead was originally designed as an innovative "no strings" and "no wings" alternative to traditional forms of feminine protection. Yet, it was the trying-to-conceive community who first used the Softcup as a preconception fertility aid.

According to Instead, the makers of the Softcup, trying-to-conceive (TTC) couples were "seeking a simple and affordable option before going to more extreme treatments. [These couples] discovered that the Softcup could be inserted immediately after intercourse to promote conception - and they had amazing success stories to prove it.

As a fertility aid, the rationale behind the Softcup is simple: Following lovemaking, the Softcup is used as a reservoir to hold semen and sperm close to the cervix. The cervix is the channel that sperm must pass through to reach the uterus and fertilize the egg. Thus, the Softcup may work as a fertility aid by helping pool sperm around the cervix.

From what I've heard they're essentially mooncups - they sit inside you to catch menstruation instead of using tampons. The idea of a mooncup is to be re-used and environmentally-friendly. But the softcups are single-use only.

The idea TTC-wise is to keep the swimmers close to the cervix and therefore avoid wastage/leakage!

no more wet patch! ha!

Um, so, I'm not sure how I feel about sticking a mini-tub up in there to a) catch AF b)keep the swimmers in the shallow end per say. But, perhaps it'd give them a whirl...for both a) & b). We'll see if my mind opens a little more to them.
