When the decision is made to start a family, I think we all have pictures of everything working out wonderfully. I know I sure did or at least, I did not expect to have a ton of hurdles to jump over to finally get pregnant.
Getting pregnant is supposed to be a time that is enjoyable, full of love, and memorable, but that is certainly not always the case. I have heard from many of you about your trials and tribulations on getting pregnant.
For me, getting pregnant took forever. I had to turn to a fertility clinic and insemination in order to finally get pregnant and even then, it took 11 tries to finally get pregnant. That is the short version of my story too. I also had to go through a surgery after the 6th insemination process as the doctors themselves were not quite sure why I was not getting pregnant.
I can remember quite clearly trying to do everything right with each of my attempts at getting pregnant. Vitamins, resting, I did basically everything except standing on my head! On the 11th try I had pretty much given up. I thought I would never get pregnant. I almost ignored the fact that I had just been inseminated. I remember having a broken tailbone at the time, getting inseminated, and going home for a run. It was then, when I decided to let go of all the stress of getting pregnant that I finally became pregnant.
The process I had to go through to get pregnant was very clinical. My adventure included trips to the fertility clinic, gowns, rubber gloves, tubes, applicators, well you get the picture. Nothing really relaxing about that scenario to say the least.
The stresses I felt while getting pregnant were significant and I think impacted my ability to relax and actually get pregnant. I was stressed about the cost of each insemination although the cost was more than worth it in the end. The reality though was I had to fund each insemination which when I was finally pregnant was $6600.
I know that I would have loved to experience a process more like The Stork has to offer. I would have loved to have been able to get pregnant in the comfort of my own home and with me in more control instead of a clinical process.
Here is a video to help show you just how The Stork works….
The Stork was approved by Health Canada in 2013 and can be purchased without a prescription. It was developed based on Cervical Cap Insemination which has a success rate of around 20% which is comparable to intrauterine insemination (IUI) that has a success rate of 16-21%.
The Stork does not require you to take any drugs compared to other fertility methods. In comparison the other fertility methods that I am aware of from my personal experience, The Stork is a less expensive alternative by far. The Stork retails for just over $100 as compared to the $600 per attempt that I experienced with my insemination process at the fertility clinic.
Whether you are just about to head to a fertility clinic, or you have maybe already tried the fertility clinic a few times, make sure to read about The Stork and what it has to offer. I have personally never used The Stork, but I do know that if it had been available at the time that I was trying to get pregnant, that I would have investigated it to see if it was a right fit for me.
