If you have been reading my blog for a lengthy amount of time, you know that I have struggled with women’s health issues since a teen. I also shared my struggles with trying to conceive due to infertility difficulties related to PCOS. Thankfully during my struggles with trying to conceive, I received excellent medical care through a military fertility clinic that was local to me. My fertility treatment course began and ended with a drug to assist with ovulation and tracking my cycles with ovulation prediction sticks and basal body temperature. Thankfully I conceived during my second round of Clomid. My Clomid baby just recently turned five-years-old!
Unfortunately not all fertility stories end with a happy ending. I know several friends struggling with heartbreak and anxiety of infertility. Fertility options can often lead to several thousands of dollars. The additional costs related to trying to start or grow a family can add unnecessary stress on a couple, which can in fact be detrimental to TTC (trying to conceive).
I recently learned about an over-the-counter conception aid, The Stork OTC. The Stork OTC is an at-home conception device that was designed to help make TTC easier. The Stork OTC is more cost effective, as well, as it retails for just $79.99. Although I have not personally used the Stork OTC, I mentioned the Stork OTC to several of my friends and a couple of them were successful in TTC using the product. They raved about find at their local Target and CVS. My closest friend told me that The Stork OTC was relatively easy to use, once she convinced her husband to give it a try.
The Stork OTC assists couples in conceiving through the use of cervical cap insemination. It is designed to be used as the next option for a couple who are having a difficult time conceiving, but are not ready to try more costly in-clinic methods. The Stork OTC contains two parts: the Conceptacle and the applicator. The Conceptacle, a latex-free condom-like sheath, is used to collect the sperm during intercourse or can be used with donor sperm. After intercourse, the cervical cap is placed on the Conceptacle. The cervical cap is then placed onto the applicator, which is used to guide the cervical cap through the vagina to the cervix. The cervical cap remains next to the cervix for 4-6 hours, optimizing the chance of conception. This video demonstrates how to use The Stork OTC.
If this product were available when I was TTC, I would have tried it before resorting to other fertility options. It’s great to see that there are more options available to couples who desire to have a baby of their own. Please visit The Stork OTC for more information about this fertility assistance option.
If you have infertility problems, how long have you been TTC and what methods have you tried? Would you consider using the Stork OTC?
