Yes, I use them for AF, and love them, but have a few issues and hope to switch to a Diva eventually. I have used them for TTC a few times and they're awesome.

I shoulve been more specific. I meant for ttc. I heard there were good to keep the sperm next to the cervix.

That's how I got pregnant after 1yr of trying. Tried it once and two weeks later I had a bfp! I was going to try them with preseed the next cycle to up my chances but I didn't even have to do that! Before trying 1 year, we were very lax on contraception for 8 years and I never got pregnant then. My DH tested ok, so I knew that I was the one with some sort of unfriendly environment, hehe. I got tired of keeping my legs up for hours after, and just spent the $14 on the instead cups. Used two out of the pack and now I have an eight month old

I used them a few years ago when TTC and they gave me a huge yeast infection. I wasn't really using them as directed though. I constantly had one in. I went to see my doctor and he told me the best thing to do is not use them for anything other than their intended purpose, but if I was going to go use them for TTC, use them sparingly.

Just lurking, but I wanted to add that I used them on this first cycle and we got pg. Unfortunately it didn't last past five weeks, but obviously they did help the sperm get where they needed to go! lol. I'll admit, they did feel really uncomfortable after a while and I would usually only wear them like an hour or a few after BDing and then I would usually wake up in the night to take them out because they would be pinching or falling our or something.

I definitely plan on using them again though.
