    Okay so i've heard soft cups mentioned a few times on the site. I'm going to purchase some as i want to pull out all the stops, but can somebody please explain to me how you use them.

    sorry for the daft questions but...

    do you insert after you've bd'd?

    how do you know if you've put it in properly?

    are they easy to put in?

    most importnatly do you ladies think they actually help???

    Thanks
    Charlie x

    Soft cups have been a godsend to us as my hubby has problems sealing the deal about 75% of the time so instead will do it into the soft cup, I'll put a blob of conceive plus in and pop it in! V easy to put in while laying down and easy to remove on the loo, once in you can't feel it at all. If hubby does seal the deal the old fashioned way I pop one in after to keep the swimmers in the right place if its my fertile time xx

    I practised with some conceive plus in it to see if I could get it in laying down without spilling the contents should I need too! It kind of ends up where it should once you've pushed it in, you'll know when you first try it, it's very easy xx

    we used them, and i got my BFP! we also used SMEP, preseed, EPO, pregnancy vits, OPKS, and I was temping.

    But I was on late shift when I was ovulating so we DTD in the afternoon and i kept the cup in for 12 hours. I do believe it helps to keep the spermies there so when the egg drops it gets it!

    The first few I slid in whilst perched on the edge of the bed. You just squeeze them in the middle, slide it in and let go! it just pops into place itself.

    once I got used to it I used to stick it in whilst still lying on my back with my legs in the air! haha

    used to put a little preseed in it before hand, and have it all ready to pop in on the bedside cabinet before we DTD.

    good luck! x

    My partner and I have been trying for 8 months with no results so this month
    We are using soft cups for the first time!!! However we are from Australia and as
    Far as I know we don't have soft cups over here that we found so we had to buy them
