I was just browsing around the JM website and saw a question someone had posted, she asked how to keep her husbands "stuff" in after sex. Someone told her to try softcups....I've never heard of these but I'm going to google them.

Has anyone ever tried or heard of these?

I've never heard of them before reading about it on a list here on JM ('trying to conceive a specific gender' I believe it was) and am curious about them as well!

Hopefully someone who knows more about them will chime in

I know about them, I have not used them. I use the Diva cup for menstruation and it is somewhat similar to that. You just slip the cup in so that the sperm doesn't fall out and you can place it up closer to the cervix. It seems like it would be good for women that can't just lay there after sex for a while. You can put the soft cup in and just get up without all the sperm coming out of you via gravity. KWIM?

I have never heard of that before. I usually just stay lying in bed with a pillow under my rear for 15 minutes.

Ditto PP. I do the Barbra Streisand. For all you youngsters who don't know what I'm talking about, she used to quip that when she was trying to have a baby, she'd put her legs up in the air after sex. I look like a jack*** but who's gonna see me?

I too just lay there with a pillow under my butt for about 30 minutes.

Do the softcups! Between these and preseed, I'm SURE they helped me!! They kept hubby's 'stuff' all up close to my cervix for hours and hours.

*Please note*
These can be hard to get out! You may not feel very coordinated the first few times, and will probly make a mess. Don't try it at work until you know how to get them out with finesse! (voice of experience!! lol)
