Well... I did it. I used the soft cups through my O. And unlike most of you that have tried them ( some of which I am still laughing about) went in and came out easy. I think it may have to do with the fact I have used the Nuva Ring before.

Guess time will tell if they made a difference!

Aww good for you. I bet the experience with the Nuva ring did totally help.

I hope it did the trick!

How to explain? It's a rubber cup like. It's shaped like a condom when it's still in d wrapper. U stick it up your vagina after sex to keep d sperm in. U have to push it close to your cervix.

Fx it works Ranchero!

the brand I used was instead softcups. if you look, they have them at like walmart and drugstores with the pads and things.

I used them and I think they helped. (but I suppose what really helped was my ovaries actually spitting out an egg!! lol)

They work!! I used it when I got pregnant with my daughter, and almost every other pregnancy (that subsequently miscarried) since. TMI, but I like it for when we have a quickie and I need to get up and around right away instead of laying around and making sure it doesn't drip out.. lol....just pop one in and it holds them right where they need to be! lol.

Nothing came out when I put it in. I didn't get up. Once you get used to taking it out it takes only a second
