The Conception Kit® at-home system offers a private and affordable infertility treatment option for couples who are waiting to move forward with clinical infertility tests.
It can be very frustrating for a couple when they are unable to have a baby as quickly as they had initially planned. However, this is not an uncommon experience – according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 7.4 million women ages 15 to 44 in the United States seek infertility services. Although infertility issues can occur in both men and women, women are more likely to seek medical treatment before their male partner. This does not necessarily mean men are less eager to conceive, and it is important for women to understand the reasons behind their partner’s reluctance to seek clinical assistance.
Lack of Privacy
One reason men may be hesitant to seek clinical infertility testing is the embarrassment and pressure they may feel when asked to provide a semen specimen for the lab. In some cases, the collection room may just be a small bathroom that is not necessarily sound-proof or comfortable. The pressure to “perform on command” can also be intimidating and uncomfortable.
Some clinics allow men to collect the semen sample at home and then bring it to the lab. It is definitely worth asking the clinic to see if this is an option. Other clinics even let the wife/partner of the man deliver the sample to the clinic if the task seems awkward for the man.
Fear of Results
Another reason men may procrastinate when it comes to completing clinical infertility testing is that they fear the results of the analysis. Many men identify their masculinity with their sexual performance and the idea that they may experience low sperm count or quality may be difficult for them to process.
It is important for women to keep in mind that they are a team and that conception needs to be a unified experience. It can be harmful to pressure a partner to do something they are not ready for. By being sensitive to each other’s concerns, couples can communicate their desires and discuss the steps they are ready to take next.
The Conception Kit® at-home system Allows Couples to Move Forward Together
Fortunately, there are other ways couples can proceed if both partners are not ready for clinical fertility testing or treatments. One of the most uniquely simple treatments available is the Conception Kit® at-home system. The Conception Kit® is available by prescription and provides a three-month fertility treatment that uses cervical cap insemination done in privacy of the couples own home. It includes 24 ovulation predictors for timing the Luteinizing Hormone Surge (LHSurge) and provides cervical caps that protect and concentrate the majority of the sperm at the cervical opening to optimize the opportunity fertilization. This is important when you consider that 90% of all sperm die within ten minutes due to the vaginal environment and never make it to the cervical opening. The Conception Kit® is also a covered pharmacy benefit with a simple cop-pay making it an affordable and simple treatment option. Most importantly, the Conception Kit™ allows couples to avoid the inconvenience and embarrassment associated with clinical testing procedures during “sample collection.” Instead, couples are able to use the Conception Kit® in the privacy and comfort of their own home.
