Meet The Ferti-lily Cup. A soft, comfy cup that helps keep ejaculated or donated sperm closer to the uterus. By cradling the sperm in the cervical mucus environment, more sperm cells survive—and more swim up to the uterus. The Ferti-lily Conception Cup is clinically proven to boost conception chances by 48%.
Definitely! The Ferti-lily Conception Cup is clinically proven to boost conception chances by 48%.
Using The Ferti-lily Conception Cup is easy.
Before inserting the cup for the first time, boil it in pure water, pat it dry, and place it in the cotton bag (included).
If you are TTC through intercourse, once your partner has ejaculated, stay lying down, and grab the cup. Turn it inside out (A) and hold it with the stem pointing toward your feet. Place
one finger inside the upturned cup (B). If you are TTC with donor sperm, follow the same steps once you have introduced the sperm into the vagina.
Gently insert the upturned cup into your vagina (C). Once it reaches the top of your vaginal canal, hold the cup in place with the inserted finger, and at the same time, gently pull on the stem (use your other hand) to pop The Ferti-lily Cup back into its original shape (D).
Look for the indents on the outside of the cup on either side of the stem using your fingers. If the cup is still inside out, you’ll barely be able to feel them. You can check where the indents are inserting the cup.
You don’t need to worry if the cup is the right way round or not. Once the sperm is inside you, it’ll be closer to the cervix, and the cup will prevent it from flowing out.
Leave The Ferti-lily Cup for from 20 minutes to 1 hour (max time).
Wash your hands. Get into a comfortable position. Reach for the stem of the cup with your fingers. Slowly pull on the stem until you feel the base of the cup at the opening of your vagina (Pictogram F).
Gently remove the cup from your vagina, keeping it upright to prevent any spillage until you’re over a toilet or sink.
Empty the contents, wash the cup thoroughly (15-20 seconds) using warm water, and store as directed (Pictogram G).
The Ferti-lily Conception Cup is available in one size and is suitable for all women regardless of height, weight, age, or anything else. The cup clamps between the walls of the vaginal canal upon insertion and opens at the opening of the cervix. The stem may just be sticking out of the vagina or just inside - this varies from person to person (the average vagina is 10-13 centimetres in length). In any case, you can easily reach it to remove the cup. In a recent clinical study, 82% of women said the cup was the right size when using The Ferti-lily to try for a baby.
By placing the sperm cells closer to the cervix after intercourse, conception cups can increase the amount of sperm cells that reach the cervix, decrease the distance sperm cells must swim to enter the cervix, and protect the sperm from the hostile pH of the vagina. Studies have shown that using a cervical cup after intercourse can increase the amount of sperm cells that swim into the cervical mucus by more than 300%. The Ferti-lily has been clinically proven to increase the chances of conception by +48%, great news if you are trying to get pregnant!
The conception cup needs to be at the top of the cervix and you can feel with your finger if the cup is inserted correctly. Get used to the way the cup feels in both its original shape and as an ‘umbrella’ and try and practice and insert before you need it to ensure you know it is inserted correctly. There are two indents – one either side of the stem – that you can only feel when the cup is in its original shape. You can also make small adjustments to the position of cup using the stem 86% of women found the product easy to use, and 9/10 found it comfortable to wear when trying to conceive.
The Ferti-lily Conception Cup can be re-used for up to six cycles, on the basis that you use the cup roughly three times per cycle (so up to 18 times). Any longer than this and the silicone may deteriorate, so replace the cup when you have completed your sixth cycle. Should you notice any signs of deterioration or damage to the silicone at any point, such as a tear, unusual odour, or discolouring, discard the cup and replace it. A cup in poor condition can cause irritation, break or may harm sperm which is not recommended when trying to get pregnant.
