It can often feel like you’re so alone. When every day brings a new Facebook status announcing a friend’s pregnancy. When people ask, “When’s the next one coming?” has to be met with a forced smile and laugh.
It can feel so lonely dealing with infertility. It’s not exactly party conversation (well, actually, at one party I went to, it was, when I found several women in my same boat).
So. Although it’s an isolating condition, infertility affects about 7.3 million couples in the U.S. Meaning, we’re far from alone in our heartbreak.
Many people don’t know this about our family, but we struggled for many years with infertility. It wasn’t an easy process – frequent doctor visits at hours when babysitters are rarely available, medications that change your moods and body shape, and then the waiting game, only to be disappointed once again.
Yes, infertility is one long story in heartbreak. However, we’re living in an age where there’s more educational information and breakthroughs in understanding and treating infertility than ever before.
One tool just released to the over-the-counter market in the U.S. is The Stork OTC. You might recall I wrote about The Stork device as a prescription option last year. But now they are available without prescription.
The Stork OTC is drug free and a cost effective conception aid for use in the privacy and comfort of your home.
Using cervical cap insemination, an established and effective conception technique (I asked my fertility nurses and they said yes, this is how it used to be done all the time in their offices, and still is sometimes upon request), The Stork OTC helps couples overcome many common fertility difficulties.
Intra-uterine insemination, or IUI, procedures are effective about 15-20% of the time, yet we’ve had 3 out of 4 procedures be successful, so if The Stork OTC had been available at the time we were going through treatments, I am confident we’d have been successful with this device.
Take it from me, fertility treatments in a doctor’s office are costly, time-consuming, and often invasive. The Stork OTC is a first step that just makes sense and can bring hope to the millions struggling with conception. It especially makes sense for women with “unexplained infertility” – meaning there are no medical conditions or blockages present.
The best part is, The Stork OTC is something you can try right now – this month even! – to optimize your chances of conception. It’s available online and in CVS Pharmacys.
