  • I have heard of the diva menstrual cups and perhaps they are the same things. The cups are used instead of pads or tampons. I have not heard of anyone using them to conceive. But in essence they catch your monthly flow and hold it there until you empty it so I am assuming that they could do the same thing for semen.

  • They are menstrual cups, but some women put them in to keep semen in their vagina after intercourse, either because they're TTC or to prevent leakage on the bed while they sleep. :P I use it as a menstrual cup but I have popped it in when I just wanted to roll over and go to sleep rather than go wash up (I had an IUD though, can't tell you if it would have been effective for fertility ;)).

  • Those are menstrual cups, not fertility cups. Have not seen much as far as success in using them for fertility.

  • I wouldn't trust that! I'll look for other alternatives. Try laying down with your but tilted for about 30 minutes after sex. Baby dust to you :) **
