A neighbour told me to do this before I go to bed after BD to keep the sperm in. I tried to look up info on the net and I couldnt find anything? What have you ladies heard? Is it Effective? Can it cause damage?

I have not heard of this, but I have heard of using the Instead cups to do so. Here is the website: http://www.softcup.com/

I use them for my period and find them quite easy to use, so it might be worth trying to use them to keep the sperm in.

i actually use a bit of tissue paper. I thought about a tampon but decided that it would probably soak up more then desired.

So I use a little bit of tissue, enough to block the hole but it's never inside. Me and dh call it...."corking her"

For God's sake---no!!! Have you ever heard of a little thing called Toxic Shock Syndrome?! You are only supposed to use a tampon during AF. Tampons, when used incorrectly, are a breeding ground for bacteria which has the potential to kill you. That's why they put that warning on every box.

Wow, scare us all, why don't you!

Joking..I agree, tampons should only be used during af.

Just make sure you have the big O while you've got a pillow under your butt then there's no need to worry about it all falling out, the good stuff gets sucked right in there by the cervix when it contracts during big O.
