This discussion about The Stork and infertility issues is part of a partnership with The Motherhood. I was compensated for my time; however, you all know that I’m having issues and I always write my own opinions, right?
One of the first pages I made on this blog was an About Me page. On that page, I declared that I want a baby girl so badly. That was two years ago. At that point, Howard and I had been trying for a second baby for about a year. It’s been three years now and we are still trying.
When we had Benjamin, he was a happy surprise. Howard and I hadn’t really dated long, but we knew we were in love and knew that we would love Benjamin from the moment the two pink lines showed up. Because we were newlyweds and first time parents and still getting to know each other, we decided it would be a long time before we had another baby. After Benjamin was born, I had an IUD put in and we were set. That was 2008.
In 2010, Howard and I started losing a lot of weight and getting healthier. After about three months on our new eating plan, my IUD fell out. Seriously, I was using the restroom and felt something strange…and there it was. Howard (and others) tease me that I lost weight too fast and my body couldn’t keep up. In any case, we took it as a sign that we could start trying for (or at least stop preventing) another baby. That was Labor Day (ironically) of 2010.
As I sit here at the end of September 2013, I am still not pregnant and we are losing weight again (we got off track). We haven’t tried any medical interventions, but we have tried monthly calendars and my phone app that tells me about my cycle. We have tried being intimate during ovulation periods and fertility teas. We have held off on talking to a doctor so far because we believe that God will give us a baby when it is time. But now, I think I’m beginning to believe that God may be waiting for us to help ourselves a little more before He helps us.
The Stork at home fertility kit -
help for infertility issues
I’m beginning to research more about infertility issues and have found several friends who have had issues as well. I recently read an article about The Stork on Texas Type A Mom and I was intrigued. I was even more excited when I was contacted to learn more about The Stork on my own!
Did you know that approximately 7.3 million couples (1 in 6 couples) in the United States have infertility issues?
As I sit here today, I don’t know what my infertility issues are, but I know that I need to talk to my doctor. After listening to a webinar about the problems that could be going on, and how The Stork could possibly help, I know that I need to make that appointment now.
Benefits of The Stork:
- Proven technique: Physician technique now available for use in the privacy of home
- Safe: FDA Authorized prescription product. Non-reusable device
- Natural: Drug-free product that requires no drugs
- Non-invasive: Requires no injections or surgery
- Easy-to-Use: Condom-like in collection, tampon-like in delivery
- Cost-effective: Compared to “next-step” treatment options
Okay, let’s talk about this.
Basically, the man puts on a special condom with a collection cap on the tip. He might not care for this part, but just offer him some other extra treat later.
You have regular intercourse. Seriously, folks, who wants to be inseminated by a nurse, doctor, or turkey baster? Oh, and apparently some women have experienced their first internal orgasm because of the tip of the condom. Bonus!
The cap is snapped onto the applicator and inserted like a tampon. I do this every month when I don’t have a baby. Why not do it again to make a baby?
I guess the weirdest part is that it stays in for 4-6 hours, but honestly, I think it would be worth it. I would likely put it in before bed and just sleep through it. Although, I hear that most women can’t even tell it is there.
This seems so much more reasonable than going through the financial and emotional strain of the more invasive procedures. In, out, boom, you’re done. And the likelihood of having multiples is the same as you would normally have with traditional fertility.
(P.S. My son is convinced that someday I’m having twins. One boy. One girl. Twins run in my family so this is totally possible and at this point, very welcomed!)
