I couldn't believe how easy it was to put in and that I could really not feel it.
That is insane! I paid that for double as many.



Rebecca: I know I wish it was that easy too. But I'm confident that the IC and Preseed will work.

We got the green light with my cyst and TTC. What do you mamas think about a support thread for cup users?

Thanks! That's good enough for me- I'll order some preseed I'd love a support thread- I'll need it because I'm scared to use them

Re: Using Menstrual Cups for TTC

btw preseed isn't a necessity. If you are good without lube in general, you don't need preseed. It is more for those who need some help in that department, it is sperm friendly whereas astroglide and KY etc are not.

I always get up after and put the instead in while in the bathroom. DH doesnt have the stomach for that stuff ROFL but I come back and snuggle after. My bathroom isnt far from the bed, and I dont "lose it" on the way LOL so it works for us.

BTW Check the clearance endcaps at Target/Walmart too! I got the boxes of Instead (I think there were 16 or 18?) for like, 4.99!! I am out now as I use them for AF too but keeping an eye out for more.
