Getting pregnant, or trying to conceive (TTC) was not an easy thing for me. I never guessed when we decided to actively try to have children that it would be so difficult. I never guessed that it would take so long and be so emotionally and physically draining on me and my husband. Getting pregnant just wasn’t easy.
I tried so many things to get pregnant. I charted my temps, I bought ovulation prediction kits, I had a monitor that helped me know when to try to conceive. I even went on medications prescribed my physician to try to get pregnant. It wasn’t happening. I was distraught and worried and honestly felt like I was never going to be a mom.
To say I would have done anything I could to get pregnant is an understatement. It wasn’t in our budget to do IUI or IVF. We didn’t have an extra couple thousand (possibly for several months) to do these procedures. I would have, believe me. But we just couldn’t. Had The Stork been available to me when I was trying to conceive, I guarantee I would have given it a try. We tried for 22 months to get pregnant with Johnny, 17 months with Joley. Every month after the 12 month mark was a blow to my psyche. I needed to do more but what more could we do? The Stork would have given us a different option and one that I would have felt in control of.
The Stork is manufactured by Rinovum, a Pittsburgh, PA-based, privately-held women’s health company dedicated to bringing products into the market that will enhance women’s lives and empower them to take charge of their health. Their CEO and founder of the product personally has been through infertility issues with his wife and has dedicated his life to helping other women.
The Stork Conception 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.
Remember me saying we couldn’t afford IUI or IVF? Well this is a huge benefit I see in The Stork. Check out the price comparison.
There are several benefits though. The technique used is one that has been used for several years but this can be done in your own home! It is a FDA approved, drug-free product that is non-invasive (requiring no surgery or injections). It is easy to use with directions that are easy to understand.
So, how do you get this awesome product that can help YOU get pregnant? It’s easy!
- First, contact your healthcare provider for a prescription for The Stork. (Just so you know, The Stork is set to be available over-the-counter later in 2014)
- Next, purchase The Stork from the website.
- You will now need to submit a copy of the prescription through email, fax or mail for verification by Rinovum.
- Pick your shipping option: Overnight (if placed between M-F by 3 PM) or Ground (5-7 business days). The Stork will ship directly to your home.
You can choose from one device or a one-month supply of 3 individually-packaged devices. As I mentioned above, it is very cost-effective; $79.99 for one device or $210 for a one-month supply.
I love that The Stork offers an option for women to address fertility issues in the comfort of their own home. I lost hope in my journey to having children and The Stork could have given me some back. I encourage you to share this with anyone who is having infertility issues. They may just be able to have the child they have given up hope of having thanks to The Stork Conception Aid.
