Ongoing Infertility Treatment Advances Offer Hope for Couples Trying to Conceive

Infertility statistics remain constant over the past two decades, but infertility treatments options continue to increase.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that the number of infertility cases across the world has remained steady over the last two decades, but thankfully, each passing year brings new infertility treatments that help enable couples to have a child. According to Dr. Charlotte Warren-Gash, the WHO reported that nearly 48.5 million couples worldwide were unable to conceive after five years of trying (BioNews, 2013). This number had changed very little from reports during the 1990s.

The Most Common Infertility Treatment Choices

Of these couples, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) reports that approximately 85-90% of couples who experience infertility choose to treat it with drug therapy or surgery.   There are a variety of different fertility medications available to couples who are interested in going that route, and individuals are encouraged to speak with their medical provider before beginning such treatments. The ASRM also reports that as infertility treatments continue to advance, fewer than 3% of all cases require procedures such as in vitro fertilization. This is great news for couples who are looking for less invasive treatments to help them conceive.

Initial Treatment Options

Patients Value Privacy and Simplicity

Many couples prefer to begin with more private methods of overcoming infertility. These treatments and practices may include:

  • Using an ovulation kit to more closely monitor a woman’s monthly cycle
  • Adjusting diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits to improve prenatal health
  • Speaking with a health professional to begin to understand infertility factors and learn to optimize chances for conceiving each month
  • Using at-home infertility treatment such as the Conception Kit® at-home system

The Conception Kit® at-home system is an ideal choice for couples who are seeking help getting pregnant. The kit can be obtained with a prescription from a doctor and is used in the privacy and comfort of one’s own home. The Conception Kit® at-home system uses timed ovulation and cervical cap insemination to enhance the opportunity to conceive. Patients on fertility medications can use the Conception Kit® at-home system along with the patient’s fertility medication plan. This combination ensures that patients on fertility medications are concentrating all available sperm at the cervical opening with the Conception Kit’s cervical cap while at the same time they are maximizing their egg production during each fertility medication cycle.

Because the Conception Kit® at-home system is obtained by prescription only, many insurance companies will cover the cost under basic prescription benefits. Copays for the prescription range from $20-$50, making it a very affordable choice especially considering that one Conception Kit® at-home system contains all the materials needed for a three-month treatment.

Couples who are interested in using the Conception Kit® at-home system on its own or in combination with fertility medications should speak with their medical professional. It is an ideal way to improve the efficiency of fertility medications and enable couples to optimize their chances of successfully conceiving.
