What is a Soft Cup for Home Insemination?

A soft cup or fertility cup is a great tool to boost your chances of becoming pregnant by home insemination. Fresh sperm can be placed in the soft cup and inserted into the vagina allowing it to rest next to the cervix for up to 12 hours. Once the fertility cup has been inserted it can remain in place while you go about your daily routine. A fertility cup is comfortable and you can't feel it once it's inserted. You can purchase fertility cups in our shop at the lowest prices.

Step 1:

Wash your hands and relax. To correctly use a fertility cup, we recommend sitting on the toilet with your knees apart.

You can choose for your donor to ejaculate directly in to the fertility cup or use a syringe to insert the sperm in to your vagina and then use the softcup to keep the sperm in place as close to the cervix as possible.

To insert the fertility cup, hold it so the bottom of the cup hangs down. Squeeze the opposite sides of the rim together. If your softcup contains sperm be careful not to spill any. Fresh sperm begins to liquidise in up to 10 minutes so we recommend inserting the fertiltiy cup while the sperm is still a thick consistency as soon as possible following ejaculation.

Step 2:

Keeping the rim pressed together, insert the fertiltiy cup completely into the vagina. Use your finger to push fertiltiy cup downward and back as far as it will go. The fertility cup cannot get lost inside you. It will slide into place under the cervix and behind the pubic bone.

Inside your body the fertility cup molds itself immediately to your unique internal shape, forming a personal fit that ensures comfort and helps prevent leakage. When the fertiltiy cup is inserted properly, you shouldn't feel it.

Step 3:

Step 4:

To correctly remove a fertility cup, we recommend sitting on the toilet with your knees apart. Insert your finger into the vagina and identify the pubic bone, the fertility cup rim will be right behind it. Hook your finger under the rim. Very slowly pull the fertility cup out of your body keeping it horizontal and level.

One tip: if you have trouble hooking your finger under the rim, bear or push down. Place the used product inside the new fertility cup wrapper or wrap it in toilet paper and simply throw it away. Do not flush the fertility cup or the wrapper.
