More and more women are using the menstrual cup during their period. It is a more hygienic, economical and ecological device for collecting menstruation. However, there are couples who are finding another rather surprising and ingenious use for it, I would say. And there are those who are using it as a new home method to get pregnant faster. How is this possible?
When you really want something, you do anything to get it, even if it sounds implausible or strange. It is easy for me to put myself in the shoes of a couple who every month receives the moment in which the woman's period drops as a failure.
The frustration of not being able to conceive is what has led many couples to try the menstrual cup method to fulfill their dream of having a baby. They have listened to a friend that it worked for her, they have read on the Internet the testimony of a woman telling how she finally managed to conceive ... And, Why not try it? You only need one menstrual cup, which can be purchased at any pharmacy and many supermarkets.
So much so that this trick has become viral and is spreading to different parts of the world.
But what is this homemade method? Couples use it to keep sperm close to the uterus for a longer time. In this way, an attempt is made to facilitate the way for the sperm to their goal: the fertilization of the ovum. Couples use it in two different ways to achieve conception.
- On the one hand, there are those who have sex without using any contraceptive method and as soon as the man ejaculates, the woman inserts the menstrual cup. In this way, an attempt is made to reduce the amount of sperm that leaves the woman's body so that more sperm are available for fertilization.
- On the other hand, there are those who try to ejaculate directly into the menstrual cup. As quickly as possible, it should be placed inside the woman. The earlier it is placed, the less chance that the sperm will lose quality.
And how long should the menstrual cup with the sperm stay inside? Some gynecologists ensure that as long as possible as long as the recommended safety and hygiene times for the different types of menstrual cups are respected.
Many of the women who have tried it say on social networks and forums that this method works. Some explain that they had been trying to get pregnant for some time without success and, shortly after starting to use this new method, they became pregnant.
The truth is that still there are no scientific studies that support the effectiveness of this home method. However, there are gynecologists who claim that it increases the chances of pregnancy, since the sperm is closer to the uterus for a longer time. They explain that, when inserting a menstrual cup, the sperm can only move in one direction: towards the interior of the woman.
Beyond the use of the menstrual cup that increases the chances of getting pregnant, it is important to know when you are most fertile to schedule intimate relationships. To do this, you must know how your menstrual cycles work, but you can also use our ovulation calculator. It will tell you which days you have the best chance of staying healthy.
If you finally decide to try this method, do it in the most hygienic and safe way possible. Keep these tips in mind when using it.
1. Clean the glass well
When using the menstrual cup hygiene is essential. Before and after each use, it is advisable to clean the cup well and sterilize it. It is as simple as putting it in boiling water for a few minutes. Let it dry and cool completely before using it.
2. Store it with the utmost care
When storing the glass, you also have to be very scrupulous so that it stays in good condition for longer. Don't forget to sterilize it before using it again.
3. Practice your insertion
Putting on a menstrual cup is not complicated, but it does take some practice. If not positioned correctly, it can be a bit bothersome and fluids can leak. Therefore, if you are thinking of trying this home method, you can practice a few months before when your menstruation comes. This way, when the time comes, you will know how to insert it.
4. Try to be relaxed
Circumstances may not be right for you to relax; the rush to insert the menstrual cup as soon as possible to try to make this method more effective can make you even more nervous. However, the more relaxed you are, the less it will cost you to insert the cup, since the muscles will be more relaxed.
5. Watch the time that remains inside you
Although gynecologists assure that the longer the sperm is in the uterus, the more possibilities there are for fertilization to occur, the recommended time on the container of the cup should not be exceeded, since each one works in a different way . In any case, keeping it indoors for more than 12 hours increases the risk of infection.
The process of becoming pregnant is lived with great enthusiasm and desire, however, it can become a very frustrating moment when the months go by and the desired state is not achieved. This is why so many parents have tried this home method. What if it worked?
Do not hesitate to go to your gynecologist to ask all the doubts that may arise about which methods are effective and which are not when it comes to achieving fertilization.
