SARANAC, Mich., Sept. 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christian couples struggling with infertility can significantly increase their chances of becoming pregnant with a new FDA-approved method that brings sperm in direct contact with the cervical opening, giving the sperm a better chance of reaching and fertilizing the egg. The Conception Cap® also stays within religious boundaries for natural conjugal love. It is the only affordable, safe and effective medical product of its kind that is FDA-approved and can be used in the privacy of the home.
The Conception Cap® holds a U.S. patent, is ISO 13485-certified and the only device specifically designed for conception with Health Canada and European approval. Unlike earlier devices, couples use the Conception Cap™ at home during the regular intimacy of their marriage. It is made of flexible, surgical-grade silicone and women may continue normal activity while it is in place. Inserting it properly is painless and simple.
Dr. Charles R. Barker Jr., D.O., of Belding, Mich., says, “Infertility can be one of the most heartbreaking experiences challenging many couples’ relationship. This option might work for some of them and be the answer to their prayers. It empowers couples with a medical device to enhance their opportunity to conceive in the privacy of their own home and doesn’t pose moral issues for them.”
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, approximately 6.1 million American women between the ages of 15 and 44 have an impaired ability to have children.
Studies have shown conception caps to be nearly as effective as intrauterine insemination (IUI) and other clinical procedures, at a fraction of the cost. Approximately nine million women in the U.S. have used infertility services. The more invasive procedures can cost as much as $18,000, must be performed in a clinic or hospital, and may require multiple tries. Many Christians feel these procedures are morally wrong.
“Sperm placed directly on the cervical opening with the Conception Cap do not have to deal with such issues as tilted cervix, high vaginal pH levels, being flushed out by gravity, low sperm count and low sperm motility,” Barker said.
Conceivex, Inc., a Michigan-based company, developed and produces the Conception Cap. The Cap is part of the Conception Kit™, which is sold online for $299.95.
The Conception Kit completed a clinical trial by Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Mich., that concluded consumers could understand and successfully follow its Instructions for Use, as well as comprehend warning labels and conditions the Kit cannot overcome
The Conception Kit contains everything a couple needs to increase the chance of becoming pregnant over a three-month period – Conception Caps, non-latex semen collectors, ovulation predictors, conception timing wheels, pregnancy test kits, a medical provider note and envelope, an instruction manual, a journal and sperm-friendly intimate moisturizer samples.
