How Do At-Home Fertility Treatments Work? The Conception Kit

One way to increase your chances of getting pregnant is to use a fertility monitor or fertility treatment, such as The Conception Kit. If you’re coping with infertility, however, make sure you talk to your fertility specialist first! Here, embryologist Stacie Hill describes how The Conception Kit works; she has 13 years of experience in reproductive medicine.

First, a quip from Celine Dion about pregnancy – to give you something to look forward to!

“I think it is such a privilege to give a baby its first home inside your body. [After the pregnancy was over] I found myself massaging my stomach gently,” says Dion. “I miss him being in my body – stretching, hiccupping even. It was a wonderful, deep, loving, fulfilling feeling.”


If you want to get pregnant, then visualize how it’ll feel to be pregnant. Imagine the successful steps you’ll take to conceive a baby…some experts even recommend creating a fertility vision board to increase the chances of pregnancy. If you want to get more practical, here’s how one at-home fertility treatment – The Conception Kit – works. Pictured is an ovulation test predictor kit from ClearBlue, which can help you track your ovulation and menstrual cycles — click it for more info.

How to Use the Conception Kit (an At-Home Fertility Treatment)

I haven’t tried The Conception Kit – nor do I know anyone who has. I’m not recommending this fertility treatment, but I definitely think it’s worth exploring! Talk to your doctor or fertility specialist about it…and if you’ve already tried The Conception Kit, please comment below.

This at-home fertility treatment  — the Conception Kit –– is the only FDA cleared at-home conception system.  The cornerstone of the kit is the Conception Cap, a small silicone cap that a woman fills with semen and places in her vaginal cavity on the cervix.  The cap holds the sperm at the cervical opening and protects them from the acidic vaginal environment, which normally kills most of the sperm within minutes.  This allows every available sperm the opportunity to travel to the uterus and fallopian tubes, where the egg will be found.  The kit also helps to increase fertility by helping a woman to identify her most fertile days of the month.

For help with tracking your ovulation, read How Ovulation Predictor Kits Work.

The Conception Kit can be used to help women conceive when these issues are a factor: low sperm motility, low sperm count, donor sperm, tilted cervix, timing of ovulation, acidic vaginal environment, position during intercourse and while using donor sperm.

At this time, The Conception Kit costs $299.95 for three months of materials, which is less expensive than traditional, invasive fertility treatments.  It contains four Conception Caps, one per month and an extra cap for practicing inserting and removing prior to the first ovulation date.  The kit also includes a three month supply of materials for tracking ovulation, collecting semen, and detecting pregnancy.

The Kit can be found at specialty pharmacies across the U.S., through the TheConceptionKit.com, or from a doctor.

Early Pregnancy Tests.com also has a Softcup fertility aid that keeps sperm close to the cervix. It’s less expensive, but doesn’t include three months of materials.

    Hi De,

    I’m sorry to hear of your miscarriage…that’s very sad. But, I’m happy that you have your little girl! I bet she’ll have brothers and sisters soon — I bet you’ll be pregnant again and have a healthy baby before you know it… 🙂

    Regarding your questions: I couldn’t suggest an at-home fertility drug, because even if I was a doctor, I wouldn’t prescribe medication or even herbal remedies without seeing you in person. There are just too many things that are unknown…which is why you really need to talk to your doctor about fertility boosters.

    Of course, there are many natural things you can do to improve female and male fertility — here are a few links to articles and general information:

    Also — I encourage you to ask your doctor about fertility drugs! Even though you already have a healthy daughter, you still have the right to do all you can to get pregnant and have more children. You’re not doing anything wrong by asking for help getting pregnant, my friend. Don’t be ashamed or reluctant to ask for help.

    Now go forth and ask your doctor how to multiply!

    Blessings,
    Laurie

  2. Hi my name is De I’m 26, married, with one child 2 1/2 yrs old. I’m not sure where to begin so here goes. I recently had a miscarriage of twins two weeks ago at 4 1/2 months along. This pain is not too new to me, before my little girl i had two miscarriages, both before three months along. So my question(s) is : Is their a fertility drug that i can take at home that i don’t have to do a bunch of testing to get, because i know that i can carry a baby, my body just seems to know when the baby is not healthy? Q) What do i say to my doctor, and will she even offer my any fertility drug because i already have had a child? I’m nevus about asking my doctor, because i know that i have already have been blessed before. Then again I’m thinking she knows my past, so…?

  3. Hi Isabel,

    I’m glad you found what you were looking for. If you have any questions about fertility treatments, please do ask.

    All best,

  4. Hi,

    I spent ages today searching for information about at-home fertility treatments. This is just what I was looking for, thanks!

  5. Ebony, I wrote two articles about predicting when you are ovulating, and forgot to post them here!

    Here is the link to “3 Ways to Predict When You Are Ovulating” – and it leads to “How Ovulation Predictor Kits Work.”

    I hope it helps…

  6. Danielle, thanks for opening up here!

    The first thing that comes to my mind is that the THOUGHT of something scary — like having to cope with infertility or serious reproductive problems — is worse than the reality. Has that ever happened to you, in other aspects of your life? Often, we build things up in our mind, and they become far, far worse in our imagination than facing them in real life.

    The fear of serious infertility issues is worse than actually facing those infertility issues. When you know what you’re dealing with, then you can start moving forward! As it is, you’re stuck in a web of fear, anxiety, worry……you’ll get out of that web when you know what the problem is — IF there is a problem!

    But, that said, you may not be ready to take that step yet, and that’s cool. Just don’t let fear dictate your life!

    Irregular periods does make it more difficult to get pregnant, but that doesn’t mean there’s something seriously wrong. Honestly, the only way to find out is to get a few preliminary tests: blood work, semen analysis, etc.

    The general rule is that if you haven’t gotten pregnant after one year of trying, then you should go see your doctor. In 33% of infertility cases, it’s male factor infertility. In 33% of infertility cases, it’s female factor. And, in the remaining 33%, it’s unknown.

    Two very close couple friends of mine can’t get pregnant, and the doctors don’t know why! They’re both in that 33% catergory, of unknown reasons for infertility.

    Anyway, I hear your fear, Danielle. It’s very scary to think that something could be seriously wrong……but your trouble getting pregnant could have NOTHING to do with your body! Even if your husband has a child from before, his sperm could now be sluggish or less prolific.

    I hope I’ve helped — and I’d love to hear from you again…especially after you’ve visited the doctor and found out what the problem might be 😉

    Best wishes,
    Laurie

  7. I am 22 years old. My husband and I have been together for a little more than 2 years. We have been trying to concieve for about the last year and are having some problems. I dont think that it is him, because he already has a child from a previous marriage. I still have very irregular periods still, since I started having them when I was sixteen. I’ve never been pregnant before, and never used birth control. I’ve had alot of women tell me that they have been sexually active not using any form of birth control, and it took them awhile to get pregnant as well. I am just wondering if this sounds anywhere near normal? I am so worried and scared to go to a doctor, afraid I’m going to have un-fixable problems. I was just wondering if I could get another point of view. Thanks!!

  8. Hi Ebony,

    Thanks for your questions – I’ve been meaning to research and write an article about how to find out when you’re ovulating, and I will later today!

    In the meantime, here are two articles about increasing sperm count and reducing male infertility:

    I’ll work on the ovulation info, and get it up asap….

    Laurie
