My guess is if the swimmers haven't made it past your cervix in 30 mins - 1 hr, they're not going to get there. So between 1/2 hr and 1 hr.

thanks.<br>
instead is sort of like the diva cup, it sits very close to your cervix, the dica cup sits lower

I know you're not inseminating but this info might be of use.<br><a href="http://www.pinelandpress.com/faq/homeinsem.html#cap" target="_blank">http://www.pinelandpress.com/faq/homeinsem.html#cap</a><br>
They are saying 2-3 hours.

The few times I tried it, I put it in and then went to sleep for the night.

I got pregnant with my second the cycle I used an Instead cup. I think I left it in no more than an hour, iirc.
