My husband and I are ttc baby #1. I went off BC in April and we tried in May. My period didn't come for 47 days. So we tried again in June and nothing. My period came in 30 days and now has seemed regular for 2 months. This month (3rd month) we are trying to use the Fertilitea combined with Instead Softcup (placing it inside to help the sperm stay inside after intercourse). My husband thinks we could have multiples if we combine these two methods. I have read many reviews for women who have used both these products and have become pregnant within a month or so. Is it possible that I can have multiples by using both of these to help me conceive?
Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
I would guess that not only would either one not increase the chance of multiples, but that they probably will not significantly increase your chance of conception. They certainly are not harmful, but most likely unnecessary.

No post-coital rituals (such as the Softcup) have been proven scientifically to increase conception rates. A fertile male will ejaculate millions and millions of sperm in his semen. Most of those die in the vagina, and the ones that survive are often found within seconds of ejaculation in the uterus and tubes.

Regarding the Fertilitea, I am not super familiar with the product, but to the best of my knowledge there are no medical studies proving its efficacy.

What you have going for you is that you are having regular periods and regular intercourse! Each month if everything is perfect you only have a 15% chance of conceiving. So keep trying and the odds are in your favor.
ClauK replied to Joel Bernstien, MD's response:
Thank you very much for your helpful response Dr. We are 26 and 27, young and fit and I have faith it will happen soon.
On a side note, recently I got an abnormal pap with LGSIL and the Dr wanted me to have a biopsy, which I had 2 years ago. I am scared this will possibly interfere with me getting pregnant. Is this so? How can this LGSIL affect my chances of getting pregnant? Thank you in advance.
Joel Bernstien, MD replied to ClauK's response:
LGSIL and/or the biopsy will not affect pregnant or conception.
