I cant find anything that suggests softcups kill sperm and they are not FDA approved but they have filed to get approved for TTC and are waiting for a response from the FDA.(I thought they where but I must have miss read it) There are alot of success stories with softcups online.

I always left mine in the 12 hours recommended, however...I told my gyno about them and he suggest to stop using them cause the chemicals they are made with, and packaging chemicals they come in can kill the sperm. So I haven't used them since for sex, just af.

Idk, I'd have to do more research. I was skeptical myself at first when I pulled it outta the package and it had such a potent smell to it, like rubber/chemical smell so I'm not too sure honestly

I got pregnant with my now four year old using softcups. I left it in less than 6 hours.

I don't personally really believe softcups are necessary.  The sperm that's going to get into your uterus does so very quickly after he ejaculates.  The stuff that comes out of you is seminal fluid & the sperm you don't want in your uterus anyway.

Even though the fda has approved them for ttc, I'd also wonder about the plastic/chemicals.  Just because the fda says they are ok doesn't mean they are (think of the other things they say is ok that many take issue with).
