I ordered mine online but I know you can find them at drug stores. I think they are normally used for AF but they are supposed to also keep the sperm up close to the cervix.
This is the first month I have tried them. I still laid elevated for 15 to 30 each time after we Bd'd but then would put one in. I would keep mine in over night, then through the morning until I left for work.
I'm 11 DPO so we will see if they worked for us
This is my first cycle using them. We use preseed and the bd and insert the Softcups. I've heard a lot of stories from women who used them so it can't hurt! The only thing that I don't like is that I had a little trouble getting it out the first time it's probably just me though!
I used softcups one of the nights, not sure if it was the night I conceived though. They are very convenient though! They make you at least have peace of mind that no swimmers are going to waste. If you are to use them I think the most effective way is to put your legs up on a wall for about 15 minutes after bd before inserting one.
I used them this cycle! My friend sent me the remainders left over from ttc her child. She got pregnant the first cycle. She had unexplained infertility for 5 years and had to have IVF to get pregnant the first time. Then 3 years after she had her twins she decided to try for one more. She heard about these and Fertile CM and bam! BFP first month! I am having a lot of symptoms and hoping they worked quickly for me. You can leave them in for up to 12 hours after inserting. I left mine in for 6 hours. They are so comfortable you don't even feel them! They are difficult to get out if you don't know what you are doing. When you go to remove you have to hook your finger around the rim and pull but some people have difficulty reaching. If that's the case, bear down like you have to poop (Or like you are trying to push a baby out during labor) and then you can easily hook your finger Good luck ladies!
