Natural intercourse is designed to have the man’s semen pool in the vagina where the cervix and cervical mucus can touch it. Once the sperm transfer from the semen pool into the cervical mucus they penetrate the small opening of the cervix called the “cervical os” during ovulation. When that happens, the sperm can enter the uterus and swim to the egg and fertilize it.
However, things don’t always work out as they are supposed to. Statistically speaking, 40% of fertility problems are due to male factor, 40% to female factor, and 20% unknown.
Some of the issues on the male side are low sperm count and low sperm motility. Sperm counts have been falling across the board in the last 80 years.
On the female side there can be many issues, but in regard to natural intercourse, 90% of sperm die in the vaginal canal within 10 minutes because of pH levels that create a hostile vaginal environment. In addition, a woman’s physical anatomy and positioning of the cervix can make hitting the cervical os more challenging.
Then there is the simple fact that a great deal of semen falls out of the vaginal canal following intercourse when the man withdraws.

Semen Collector – The semen collector is a specially designed sheath that is patented and cleared by the FDA so that it will not impact the quality of the sperm or the permeability of the cervical mucus. The man wears the semen collector during normal intercourse so that the sperm are captured and protected in the collector.
Sperm Friendly Lubricant – Many lubricants can have negative impacts on the sperm and cervical mucus. The Conception Kit® provides a FDA cleared sperm friendly lubricant so that the natural process is protected and your intercourse can be easy and joyful.
Conception Cap® – Following intercourse using the semen collector, the semen is placed into the sterile Conception Cap® and placed on the cervix. This concentrates the semen directly on the cervical mucus at the cervical os. The Conception Cap® protects the sperm from the harmful pH of the vaginal canal and creates the best opportunity for the sperm to enter the cervical os and swim to the egg.
The Conception Cap® has a patented design that helps the cap collapse in such a way that the semen comes into contact with the cervical os. Once the cap is in place, it will stay in place until removed. That means you can go about your normal activities.
The Conception Kit® at-home system simply enhances the way your body is designed to conceive naturally. The Conception Kit® is a first step treatment on your journey to enhancing the opportunity to get pregnant.
