Re: Instead Cups/Resuable Cups For TTC & Gender Swaying Support Thread

I leave it in for 12 hours but we are taking a break now because it's stressing me out. My cycle is also pretty messed up. I have usually 28 day long cycle and it's been getting shorter and shorter. Last one was only 24 days and that one before was 26.

Re: Instead Cups/Resuable Cups For TTC & Gender Swaying Support Thread

I leave the IC in overnight while sleeping. It works great- can't feel it and comes out fine in the morning. I could only find them at Walgreens- not target or walmart. I know they used to have them at our target, but not anymore. I reuse them at least 2 times after washing and drying with water only. I was a little worried it would block some of the sperm too, but when I take it out in the AM there is obvious semen in the cup that was sitting on my cervix, so I don't worry anymore. I just like how it contains the mess!

I found MAca at the health food store but it was way more expensive than buying on line= even with shipping.

Have you had your thyroid checked? An underactive thyroid can shorten your cycle. Take all the break you need from TTC and start back fresh. (-: GL mama.

Why haven't we seen any BFP soon Seems like they all came at once and now it's all BFN's

Skittle- I'm sorry, I have no advice for what you are going through...I can't get my own body figured out. I really hope it works when you'll aren't trying!

Re: Instead Cups/Resuable Cups For TTC & Gender Swaying Support Thread

OK I tried the Instead cup for the first time tonight. And WTH these are not comfortable at all it's like a yarmulke is shoved up my girl bits. OMG and I sneezed WOW! I'm not sure how much longer I am going to be able to keep this thing in.
I'm confused a lot of you said they are so comfy? I don't know

Have you inserted it correctly? You aren't supposed to feel anything when it's in.

I was checked about 8 months postpartum and everything was fine. I'm suspecting that if I still have the cyst, that this is messing up my cycle.

Tarsha I wonder if it's because you are TTC for your first??/ Not so stretched out in there??? For lack of better terminology.

Are these okay? Which one is better? I am finding sooo many diff. Maca's that I don't want to get the wrong one. What is the difference between Raw Organic Maca and just reg. Maca?
