  • I tried it. And I wasn't really happy with it, I'm back on the pill.
    I could feel it, like a tampon, hubby could feel it while having sex and I was always worried that I would loose it.

  • Used it for a year before TTC our son and I loved it. DH said he could feel it, but it didn't bother him and I personally couldn't feel it, but then again I don't feel tampons either when they are in. How did she hurt? You need to check EVERY time you have sex to make sure it is still there and CAN take it out for about 2 hours in a 24 hour period if it bother's SO while having sex.
