Anyone used them and had success? Whoch type is best? I've heard some pull the sperm away from the cervix because of the suction?

I've never used a cup and I'm positive I'd mess up!
Are they simple to use? Which type is best?

I used a fertility tracker and wed have sex every day while I was ovulating and a few days after, sometimes I rolled the cup like in the link, just make sure your cervix is actually in the bag part. I had issues of my cervix going behind the cup. I only used them for 3 months and conceived twice but the first was a chemical.



*eta I was TTC for 2 years before trying the cups, and finally conceived at 16 months but it ended in a miscarriage

Is there a reusable one or are the TTC ones solely one use?

Awesome!
:) they come in packs of 14 don't they? Where's the best place to buy? I was hoping for reusable ones.
Are instead cups different to the divacup?

There are a lot of reusable menstrual cups out there. It's really kind if interesting. I want to get a meluna.
