Cervical cap insemination to enhance conception is not a new treatment method. Â In fact, it may be a method your Grandmother used.
Since the 1950s, cervical cap insemination has been used by physicians as an effective in-office treatment for infertility.
What is new is being able to use it in the privacy of the patientâ€™s home! The Conception KitÂ® at-home system gives couples the ability to use this process at home!
This is important since most couples want to keep their reproductive health private. By using the Conception KitÂ® the patient will transfer the semen into the soft flexible Conception CapÂ® (cervical cap).
It is then inserted into the vagina and placed over the cervix, where sperm cells are placed in direct contact with the cervical os (opening) for 4 to 6 hours. The ability to concentrate semen and deliver it to the cervix is very important.
Research has shown that 90% of the sperm will not survive the first ten minutes inside the vagina for various factors.
Concentrating all available sperm at the cervical opening protected from the vaginal environment means:
- Sperm cells do not have to swim up the wall of the vagina to reach the cervical opening
- Sperm cells will not be pulled out of the vaginal cavity by the penis or gravity
- Sperm cells are not lost in the vagina
- Sperm cells will not be affected (die) by the acidic vaginal environment
- Sperm cells will pool in the right location to meet with the cervical opening and cervical mucus
