Question Question for those who know the DivaCup and female anatomy well...

After DTD today, I stayed on my back for a few minutes, but then DS woke up from his nap early and life begins again, so I rushed to the bathroom and popped in my Diva to try to keep it all in. Well, with everything so slippery, it slid right in and popped open way up high. It's done that once during AF, and I had to bear down HARD quite a few times to get it where I could pull it out, and I was afraid if I did that today, I'd push all the semen out too. So, I just left it alone for a couple hours. What I'm wondering is, do you think it would've been in a good position, near the cervix, or do you think it may have actually been high enough to block the opening instead? Even that wouldn't be "too" bad, since at least what was already in would be stuck, but then all the stuff that was in the cup from the trip up would be closed off from entering...

Anyways, what do you think?

it could have helped, keeping the spermies in there closer to where they can swin in there..if youre gonna do that though honestly, instead cups work beter since thee cup part sits against your cervix, and is a lot closer to it.

Re: Question for those who know the DivaCup and female anatomy well...

actually sticking the diva or the instead cup in the vagina afterwards won't really help get the sperm to their intended goal. i believe i read it in TCOYF, that semen is a good way to get the sperm from point A to point B, BUT after ejaculation, that fertile cervical fluid is what really speeds the sperm toward the uterus (and in fact leftover semen can inhibit sperm motility) this all happens within seconds, it doesn't take hours for the sperm to leave the vaginal canal.

good luck getting prego mama!

yeah but if youre up and running around it keeps whats left in there and closer so that it doesnt run out, and you have more of a chance of one of them making it up there to the egg!

if you're up and running around, you WANT the semen to run out, the sperm would have swam far far away already! semen bogs down sperm, it is only meant to be a vehicle from the testicles to the vaginal canal. then it's useless, lol.

Ok my cervex sits right inside of my keeper. I think it would help the sperm in there. I think it would be a good idea for you to lay with your hips on a pillow for about 15 minutes.
