    Hi. I have now reached desperate measures. Just finished my first IVF which failed and considering using soft cups. Anything to avoid that emotional rollercoaster lol. But has any one used them? did you do the business first and then insert them or did you put the special ingredient in them first and then insert?

    I've used them with and without preseed. They are bloody massive though and I can't ever get them into the correct position. Have you looked into Napro? they have had success with failed IVF couples- they have gone on to conceieve natural. We have travelled from mainland UK to Ireland for our consultation, but after the first time the rest can be done over the phone. They also have people trained in it in England.

    I have tried them out of sheer desperation and found them pretty damned awful :nope: people tell me they can't feel them once they are in, but that was not the case for me-
    but at this point I'd try most stuff.

    A word of caution with the preseed/conceive plus lube, if you are putting some of that into the SC it really needs to be warmed up a little, sperm are very sensitive to cold temperatures and icy lube would probably stun them.
