New Product to Help Couples Conceive
is a new product on the market to help couples conceive.
Kit™ was designed by Conceivex,
a Michigan-based company. The kit has only been available
since May 2006, but the idea behind the Conception
Kit™ is not a new concept. The
kit comes with many tools to help couples conceive,
including ovulation predictors, two conception timing
wheels, non-latex semen collectors, a medical provider
note and envelope, instruction manual, a journal,
sperm friendly intimate moisturizer, pregnancy tests,
and the main component of the kit, the conception
cap. Couples use the conception cap after intercourse
to help sperm have a better chance of fertilizing
the egg. The conception cap is filled with semen,
inserted into the woman’s vagina, and placed
at the opening of the cervix. The reason the conception
cap is so successful is because the cap keeps the
sperm from slipping out and it also moves the sperm
up closer to the egg.
Each kit comes with a three month supply of everything
couples need to conceive. It is a good idea for the
couple to have a basic understanding
of the woman’s fertility cycle.
The kit includes ovulation
predictors which identify a surge in
LH that normally occurs one to two days before ovulation.
The couple should have intercourse before or during
ovulation in order to have the best chance of getting
pregnant. The best time to conceive is one day after
the woman’s LH surge. Using
the semen collector
The couple should have sex normally using the semen
collector. The semen collector keeps the sperm from
entering into the vagina where it could be potentially
destroyed from a hostile vaginal environment. (High
or low pH, yeast infection, or other unfavorable environments
in the vagina can kill sperm) Once the couple has
had intercourse, the semen collector should be removed
from the penis. Squeeze the semen out of the collector
and into the conception cap. This should be done as
soon as possible after having sex. Using
the conception cap
Before using the conception cap, the woman should
be comfortable with her body and know how to find
her cervix. There is an instruction manual included
on how to find your cervix. Once the conception cap
is filled with semen, pinch the cap together and insert
it into the vagina, placing it upon the cervix. This
will move the sperm closer to the uterus and will
keep the sperm from spilling out into the vagina.
Keep the conception cap in place for six to eight
hours (or overnight).
fertility issue can the Conception Kit™ help
Kit™ may help with male factor
issues such as low sperm count or motility. It can
also improve the chances of getting pregnant for women
with a tilted uterus or hostile vaginal environment.
It will not, however, help with female issues such
phase defect, PCOS,
or men who have azospermia (no sperm in the semen).
effective is the Conception Kit™
couples that have had difficulty conceiving the Conception
Kit™ may be an alternative to expensive
fertility treatments. A study conducted in 2000 showed
that the Conception
Kit™ was almost as
effective as the more expensive intracervical injection
(IV). Many insurance companies do not cover the cost
of artificial insemination, leaving couples who cannot
afford expensive procedures with little options. The
Kit™ is an affordable
option for couples that are trying to conceive.
