My Husband and I have been TTC for the bast 5 months unsuccessfully. We had a chemical preganancy in agust at 3 months TTC and have been using the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor since day 1. Although 5 months isn’t very long, especially compared to some couples struggles, we have been getting incresingly impatient each month. At this point we are willing to try anything!
I recently discovered a product at CVS called The Stork Conception. We just happened to see it while we were picking up a prescription. it looked pretty interesting but we could not find much information online. it looks like it is almost like an IUI or using softcups. Basically you collect the semen in this cup and then use an applicator to bring it directly to your cervix.
Has anyone had any experience with it or know anything about the product? I have already purchused it and am waiting for ovulation to use it this month but im curious.

There is a webiste for the company online. Looks pretty interesting. TTC for 11 cycles, I’m willing to try anything. Commenting to follow. Good luck OP!

I haven’t tried that, but I did use SoftCups the month I got my BFP. Unfortunately it was a chemical and the soft cups didn’t work last cycle (my first cycle trying again.) I could definitely see this helping out.

I would start charting your temperature. That can give you, and a doctor if you get that far, a lot of really important information.

I would think that product would really only be helpful if there are issues with sperm motility (so they need a little help finding their way). The bigger issue is making sure you have well-timed sex right around ovulation. A fertility monitor is a good start, but I agree with Glasgowbound, charting is a more accurate (and cheaper!) way to nail down your fertile window and ovulation. And if (god forbid) you are still having problems down the line and need to see your doctor or a RE, you’d already have chart data to show them (because one of the first suggestions they’ll give you is to chart your cycles for a few months to make sure you’re ovulating regularly).

Bumping this in hopes that others have tried it by now. I just ordered it, so we shall see. My biggest question is can you use it with regular intercourse. Or do the goods need to actually go in the cup?
