  • I don't know about the instead cups. If you are using them to hold the semen inside then I know that ia not necessary. Try laying for 15-30 minutes after sex before getting up and that should do the trick. They say anything that comes out after that time is no good anyways.
    I used Robitussin. Just plain old Robitussin with the active ingredient Guaffessin. The Guaffessin causes your cervical mucus to increase and this helps the sperm get where they need to go and to live longer.
