The Stork OTC Helping Couples Get Pregnant #TheStorkOTC

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: May 16, 2015 | Categories: Family and Health, Health and Fitness, Marriage, Pregnancy

This post is brought to you by The Stork OTC and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Before I got pregnant with my son, I really thought I might not ever have children. Up until I was in my thirties, I thought I didn’t even want kids. Because of some hereditary information I learned about when I was sixteen, I had convinced myself that having a child would never be in the cards for me.

Plus I had spent every summer babysitting from the time I was thirteen until just after I turned eighteen, and that had convinced me I didn’t want kids. Okay, there really is a little truth to this.

Seriously, though, I was just scared.

Here I was in my thirties, late thirties actually, and I was afraid I’d waited too late and now I would live the self-fulfilled prophesy and never have a child because I’d waited too late.

Things worked out for me and I did get pregnant, but it could have easily been a different story, like so many other couples wanting to have a child and having trouble getting pregnant. I have a cousin who took infertility drugs to get pregnant, but it was a long and costly process.

The Stork OTC is a NEW treatment option that has been FDA-cleared for home-use without a prescription. The Stork OTC optimizes a woman’s chances of becoming pregnant by putting the sperm closer to the opening of the cervix as possible.

Women can feel more comfortable using The Stork OTC because it offers a relaxed and private way of conceiving in your own home by using new technology based on cervical cap insemination.

The Stork OTC can change the way couples face the challenges of conceiving. I think The Stork OTC is a great first step for a woman trying to conceive before she takes more invasive and expensive measures.

The Stork OTC uses an established and effective conception technique—cervical cap insemination—which helps with many common fertility difficulties.

Cervical cap insemination’s documented success rate is around 10-20%1, 2 similar to the success rate for IUI.3

FDA-cleared applications for The Stork OTC include common fertility difficulties attributed to both men and women, including:

  • Low Sperm Count
  • Motility Issues
  • Unfavorable Vaginal Environment (pH imbalance)
  • Unexplained Infertility

It is available now, online and in select retailer stores, for more information and where to buy visit http://www.storkotc.com/.

    They are really stepping it up with various techniques used. I have two children and I want at least one more but I am quickly approaching that age where my chances get cut in half. This was good to know information. Well written quality article.
