Get Help Trying to Conceive with The Stork OTC

Trying to conceive can be a long, heart-breaking experience for some. But if you are on the outside looking in, you may not realize how to respond. Someone you know may be dealing with issues of trying to conceive and you may not even know it. Here are some tips to help.

Take the issue seriously. Sometimes our initial reaction can be to make light of a situation, especially when the person feels uncomfortable. But the person on the receiving end of your comments can just feel worse like what they are experiencing is a big joke to you.

Don't complain about your own pregnancy. Or past ones or complain about your kids. A woman who is trying to get pregnant wants more than anything to be in your shoes. She would gladly take your morning sickness, swollen ankles, and aching back instead for dealing with infertility. When you complain, you sound ungrateful.

Be understanding. It can be hard to be understanding when you have never experienced something yourself, but try to imagine how you would feel if you were in their situation.

Be Supportive. The decisions she has made about her fertility are most likely doctor recommended. But uncertainty is an unfortunate part of the process. TTC couples often question their own judgment and having a strong support system will keep them from feeling overwhelmed.

The Stork OTC is an at-home option that could bring hope to many. The Stork OTC is a drug-free conception device that offers a relaxed and private way of conceiving at-home using new technology based on cervical cap insemination. It’s a sensible option that puts you in control, and is widely available over-the-counter, without a prescription to optimize your chances of conceiving this month.

The Stork OTC is ideal for:
- People who are trying to become pregnant.
- Men diagnosed with low sperm count or motility issues.
- Women diagnosed with an unfavorable vaginal environment (pH imbalance).
- Couples trying to become pregnant without intercourse.
- Healthy couples who desire to control timing.
- Couples who are not ready to take the next step in reproductive treatment such as IUI or IVF.

    I didn't struggle with infertility like so many ladies do.... we did use an ovulation kit for getting preggo with both of my children. I thought I knew when I ovulated, but the kit showed me that I was off on my timing. It was very helpful for me! I plan to use another one when we try for #3. :)

  2. My sister has been, but I don't have a story. I just heard from my mother that she's been struggling with that. Thanks for the chance.

  3. My mother struggled for years with fertility issues. It took me almost a year to conceive my first and would love to try for #2 when my hubby come home from deployment!

  4. My wife and i have been trying to conceive for 2 years, love to see if the stork can help!

  5. Yes. I have a son who is 9 from a previous relationship. My husband (of almost two years) and I have been pregnant twice and miscarried each time. We're not sure why, as we've each produced children with someone else before and really want one (or more!) together. Fertility treatments are expensive and not an option right now. :( Would love to try this!

  6. Thank God I haven't had this problem!

  7. I know someone who is going through this struggle and it would help her and her husband - Judy Feldman

  8. I myself, have completely irratic cycles so it takes us sex everyday for at least 3-6 months before we catch just the right timing. Its very frustrating. I cannot imagine how those feel who go years without conceiving :/ My friend right now is struggling and doing lots of rounds of meds hoping to find an answer!!

  9. I do not know anyone struggling, but we are still trying for our first.

  10. We are on month 13 of TTC with no luck. We do have other kids so that makes it hard for me to talk to other people about it. I feel like they think I am selfish or something.

  11. No, I do not know anyone that is struggling, but we will be trying for #2 soon.


Thank you for dropping by! I would love to hear what you thought. :)
