I figured that . It's the actual pushing of the semen into the cervical area that causes issues though. (Since your cervix is more open during O, but the CM within the cervix usually prevents the semen itself from getting through, just the swimmers.)

ETA: I've found softcups at Shoppers before (but I don't think they have them at all of them?). They're in the feminine products aisle. (I know some women have gone searching through the family planning section. Myself included many moons ago!)
New siggie coming soon!

Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.

DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.

DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.

TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!

IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!
