    I was wondering the same. I ended up purchasing one just out of interest. I'm not sure when to use it in order to maximize chances if we are using alongside sex also.... Hmmmmm I'll be ovulating at some point within the next 2 days and we have been DTD every day for the past 3 days

    @wheelsy we used it last week at peak lh. It was quite tricky to use and a little painful. I would recommend getting some preseed or similar lube to help. The condom is super think, like really thick. My partner ended up just doing it into the cup thing. Inserting it was fine. I also propped my hips up afterwards and left my feet in the air for a good 30min to try help it on its way. I set and alarm to take it out in 5 hours and it came out easy. I was a little anxious about getting it out. I did feel like my cervix was a little bruised afterwards but in a couple of days I was fine. We bought three with the intention of using one at night, the next morning and then the next night but we just couldn't bring ourselves to use it again so soon after the first go. I think if we had lube it would of been ok. Don't know why they don't include it in the pack.

    Good luck and let me know how you go.

    Af is due in 10 days for me. I'm crossing everything we were lucky this month

    Oh wow that's such good info thank you so much. I'm sooooo crossing my fingers for you and can't wait to hear your news. How long have you been trying? I think we will attempt to use it tomorrow/next day when I'm at peak.

    We have even trying since April and have low sperm count. Last test was 7mill. We are waiting on another test result to see if it's increased. We have seen a fertility specialist who said if it's not increased we need to do ivf. We are hoping the stalk comes through for us!

    How long have you been trying? Are you using ovulation tests and tracking your temperature?

    Good luck using it, it is a bit of a laugh cos it's so weird.

    Hope so too, it would be a great Xmas surprise for you!!

    We have only just started trying this month.
    My partner has anxiety & very low libido so We bought it when we decided it was time to start trying, and it has become a bit of a back up plan, since now his libido has come back after his first time "back in the saddle" so to speak.

    Not sure if I should use it to cover all bases or save it for next month incase. I so hope we fluke it the first month and fall pregnant as we have had our fair share of (non baby related) disappointments in the past 3 years.

    I'm using ovulation tests but I'm not sure how reliable as I really thought I ovulated yesterday or today. Perhaps it will come up smily tomorrow.
    I'm pretty in tune with my cervical mucus as I've been monitoring it for many months and so know that I'm ready. We have going at it like rabbits and I know the tww will be hard for me. I hope you are doing ok waiting. When will you test?

    Oh it would be wonderful for you guys if you got lucky this month! Great to hear his libido is back, he must be happy with himself. I'm sorry to hear you have already had 3 years of disappointments... not nice. What ages are you guys?

    Yes I was worried about getting the ovulation timing right with using the stalk too. I was testing morning and night and as soon as the line was darker than the control line we used it. Also went off the cm too though. I'm sooooo tired at the moment, not sure if it's a sign... but every month I think there are signs and turns out it's nothing. We don't test, we wait until af hasn't arrived. I get anxiety also so we think the testing will make it worse. If it shows up nothing I'll end disappointed but I'll still be hoping it was too early to test and will keep hoping. Too many rollercoaster emotions on top of the already emotional ride. I have a short cycle with ovulation around day 10-12 and af arriving around day 24-28. I'm on day 19 now so not too much longer to wait.

    Good luck and keep me updated xo

    Oh my gosh what a funny little contraption!!
    I got my positive smiley face on opk so I knew we needed to give it one last shot tonight, but my fiancé is exhausted and to be honest I was just not up for it either. We decided to try the stork and after all the laughs I'm lying here with it in.

    He ended up going straight into the cap without the condom. So we didn't get it all, but who knows.
    Hoping that we have been at it enough over the last couple of days to catch on.

    So will take it out in about 5 hours then start my 2ww. Now that is gonna be interesting, I am already googling like mad. I hope I can calm down abit.....
