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).
What fertility issue can the Conception Kit™ help with?
The Conception 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 as luteal phase defect, PCOS, or endometriosis or men who have azospermia (no sperm in the semen).
How effective is the Conception Kit™
For 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 Conception Kit™ is an affordable option for couples that are trying to conceive.
