So i was cheating on this JM...lol

I have an app on my phone called Pink Pad. It has a bunch of groups and boards. So I started reading.

Anyone heard of these "natural" methods being added to your MA cycle?
-Soft Cups?
-SMEP?

I dont know seems kinda goofy but wondering if it has helped anyone you guys know? I figure its not more medication so what can it hurt?

I have heard of those cups but never used them. I am not a fan of putting things up my vajayjay that don't belong there.

The cycle I got pg, last March, I used instead cups And I have a friend who got pg using them as well.

I heard they are going to start marketing them as a ttc conception tool soon too! I figure they can't hurt. It just keeps the swimmers inside you.

The first time you have to take one out, takes some finesse! But once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. You don't put it straight in like a tampon, you have to push down and back to insert it and the last part to go in, sits behind your pubic bone. Sounds weird, but if you do it once you'll understand.

Best of luck if decide to use it!

Finesse? Is that what you call sitting spread-legged on the bathroom floor sobbing hysterically because you think you'll have to go to the ER to have a cuppy-thing removed from your lady-parts?

Um, perhaps this is unnecessary to say, but I only used the soft cup once

OMG!!! I'm sorry, but this made me laugh like crazy!!!

And they do look HUGE!!!

I, too, cheat on jm and another site of mine had a lady that swore by them. So I've been using them. I swear I was going to have to get out the needle nose pliers and reach up in there a time or two!! lol I'm not sure if it helped me or not, but it definitely kept the 'goo' where it needed to be for 8 hours of sleeping

I tried them for AF because the mom of the guy I was dating in high school used them. I hated them. They felt uncomfortable and leaked and were just yuk! I have heard of women using them to help get pg. At this point I am pretty much willing to try anything so I will definately have to look into them.
