There are many ways women can address infertility challenges that may occur as they age including the use of the Conception Kit® at-home system.

In our culture, many women are waiting to have children until they are older. Some couples have chosen to complete their education, further their careers, and take time to travel or follow a passion before deciding to have children. In fact, about one-third of couples in the United States now wait until the woman is older than 35 to begin having children.   Every person is an expert on the best timing for having children and deserves to take control of their family planning. Unfortunately as women age, fertility eventually begins to decline and some couples find it difficult to get pregnant as they grow older.

Why Does Age Affect Female Fertility?

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that once a woman reaches age 35 and older, her chances of having a baby begin to decrease and her chances for miscarriage may increase.   But why does this happen?

A woman is born with all the eggs she will ever produce already in her ovaries. Consequently, as she ages, the number and quality of her eggs decrease and her ovaries become less able to release eggs. Furthermore, women may be more susceptible to health conditions that cause fertility problems as they age.   Some women also experience abnormal menstruation which can make it difficult to conceive.

How Can Women Address Infertility?

There are many ways women can successfully treat infertility. Generally, treatments will depend on the cause of infertility, but there are many early steps that can be taken without requiring clinical testing. For example, women are encouraged to eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and reduce stress to improve their overall prenatal health. It is also important for women to avoid smoking, caffeine, or excessive alcohol consumption.

In addition to improving health and lifestyle habits, there is another ideal early fertility treatment known as the Conception Kit® at-home system. This is a prescription fertility treatment that combines timed ovulation and cervical cap insemination technology to maximize the chances of conceiving. Ovulation is the most fertile time during a female’s cycle and is the best time to have sex because it is the period during which an egg is released.   When used correctly, ovulation kits are nearly 99% accurate and provide helpful insight into the timing of intercourse.   However, there is still the chance that sperm are unable to fertilize an egg during this period, especially when you consider that 90% of sperm die within the first ten minutes inside the vagina. To improve the chances of conception, couples can use the Conception Kit® at-home system to gather and protect sperm near the opening of the cervix for four to six hours so they have the best chance of fertilizing the egg. The Conception Kit® at-home system can also be used in combination with fertility medications to further enhance a couples chances of getting pregnant during each medication cycle.

The Conception Kit® at-home system is available by prescription only and is covered as a prescription benefit under many insurance policies for a $35-$80 co-pay. It is an ideal first step for women seeking early infertility treatment options that are private, accessible, and affordable.
