Most couples look forward to having children, but it’s not a guarantee and for many couples it is extremely difficult to conceive. In fact, 1 in 6 Canadian couples have difficulty conceiving. There are many reasons for this, and here are some of them:

  • Increasing fertility issues related to environmental and lifestyle factors
    • 40% of diagnoses are attributed to the male, 40% to the female and 20% are diagnosed as unexplained
      • Male Factor: estrogen levels are higher than ever before resulting in low sperm counts, motility and morphology issues
      • Female Factor: imbalanced vaginal pH, diminishing ovarian reserve, PCOS, endometriosis, etc.
  • Women are trying to conceive later in life
    • Females age 20-25, 25% chance per month of conceiving
    • Females age 30-35, 15% chance per month of conceiving
    • Females age 35-40, 10% chance per month of conceiving
    • Female age 40, 5% chance per month of conceiving
  • Limited options available for those initially struggling:
    • Long waiting periods given by physicians before further assistance for help
      • Under 35 years of age suggested to wait 12 months
      • Over 35 suggested to wait 6 months
  • Treatments today are slow, invasive and costly
  • There are limited options available that bridge the gap between just starting to try and assisted human reproduction treatments

Since fertility treatments can be out of reach for many people, the dream of having children may be out of reach. There is a new product on the market that may be the answer they are looking for. The Stork is a product that is available over-the-counter in Canada that aids in natural fertility and conception in the privacy of the couple’s home.

The Stork Conception System is an FDA-cleared, private conception kit that aids with natural conception from the comfort and privacy of your home. The 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.
