Re: Instead Cups/Resuable Cups For TTC Support Thread (Same Great Info, New Name!)

Does anyone know where you can buy IC in Canada? I've been looking around everywhere but can't seem to find them.

http://www.softcup.com/ Their website does not list any local retailers for Canada but did list this online distributor. http://careinstore.ca/products.php?cat=9

Just to let you all know in case you're curious...I've used the instead cup for 3 days now and you can DEFINITELY tell it's right up next to your cervix. I used my ladycup last month and I'm not really sure it did any good. I think it worked more like a damn then actually keeping the sperm up where it needs to be. I poked around in there when I had the IC in and you could feel that it was right up next to my cervix. I guess the ultimate test will be in a couple of weeks when I can POAS

If I had to recommend one for ttc I would say go with the IC. For menstrual...definitely go with the ladycup or divacup.

Hey mamas
How are things going? I'm on CD 9 (I think) and we DTD yesterday. I used the Preseed and the cups "just to practice" . Hopefully I will ovulate this month.

Which cups are you using? Was that your first time?? How did it feel? (all questions are in regards to the cups not you dtd )

well this month was the first month we tried (before we were just not preventing but it never did time right with O so I wasn't really even considering testing)..

This month, we DTD the day before O, day of O, and day after O.. Used the cups each time.
On 5dpo I felt twinges, just like I did at 7dpo when DS implanted.
So at 7dpo I tested and it was faint.. questionable bfp.
On 8dpo it was for sure. (top test) and the others are from today, 11dpo..


Instead Cups work like a charm, truly!!
