What is the Stork OTC?

You’ve never heard of the Stork?!? I hadn’t either until I was searching for options other than IVF when dealing with infertility. The Stork® OTC is an at-home conception aid that can help couples conceive. The Stork® OTC may work for any couple, even without fertility issues, but it is ideal for those dealing with male factor infertility (low sperm count or motility).

The Stork® is similar to an IUI procedure but it uses a technique of cervical cap insemination putting the sperm at the opening of the cervix, as close as possible, to swim up through to an egg, optimizing your chances of becoming pregnant. Cervical cap insemination, the technique of the Stork OTC, has up to a 20% success rate, comparable to documented success rates of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), 16-21%.

The Stork is FDA cleared and easy to use once you have read the directions or watched their how-to tutorial.

How Does It Work?

The Stork® OTC includes two familiar elements: a cervical cap inside of a condom-like sheath (the Conceptacle®) used to collect the sperm and an applicator device (the applicator) used to place the cap (similar to the delivery of a tampon).

After collecting the semen in the cap, the applicator efficiently and easily places it near the woman’s cervix. The cap stays in place, keeping the sperm where it needs to be, for up to six hours, while the woman continues her normal routine, then is easily removed with the attached cord, similar to tampon removal.

The Stork is available at Walgreens, Target and Amazon
