Who knew such a simple thing for some could be so complicated for others? It became complicated for me, and when I began to discuss it more openly I began to get questions. I was contacted by friends who had similar frustrations, other who had different complications. Everyone wanted to know when they should seek further testing, and what they could be doing at home to make conceiving easier.
There is a new product available over-the-counter in Canada called The Stork. Its an at home product you can use that would save you money if it saved you from going to more invasive procedure.
[su_quote]The Stork is $126.99, so its a great place to start when you are waiting to see a specialist, or haven’t hit one year of trying to concieve yet. To give you a comparison, artificial insemination (IUI) is $500 – 1000 per cycle, and IVF costs $8,000 to $16,000 per cycle.[/su_quote]
What Is The Stork? I will let the experts explain:
The Stork Conception System is an FDA-cleared, private conception kit that aids with natural conception from the comfort and privacy of your home. The system is indicated for assisted insemination in instances where low sperm count, sperm immobility, or hostile vaginal environment has been diagnosed. The system (cervical cap in a condom-like silicone sheath) is used to collect semen into a cervical cap, and then deliver the cap to the outside of the cervix as an aid to conception. It is to be used at home following physician instructions. You can see a full video for how to use The Stork kit here.
