Conceiving Naturally: You Have Options



This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and The Stork OTC. All opinions are my own.

You’ve found the ONE. You fall in love. You get engaged and plan a wedding. You get married and buy a house. And then comes baby, right?

Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to happen? I mean, that’s how it is in movies and how it appears to go for your friends and loved ones, right?

But did you know for most couples, conceiving a baby isn’t as easy as what you were taught in health class as a teenager? According to the Center for Disease Control, 1 in 8 couples have trouble getting pregnant. In fact, a couple between the ages of 29-33, with healthy, functioning reproductive systems have only a 20-25% change of conceiving in any given month.

Why am I talking about statistics?

Because my husband and I are one of these couples.

We were married in the summer of 2012 and decided that we wanted to soon start a family. After a routine well-women exam with my gynecologist, we decided I would stop taking my birth control pill. We figured we’re get pregnant almost right away because we were young, healthy, and so excited to begin a family.

Months and months went by. I’d go to the store and buy pregnancy tests and if my period was just one day late, I’d take a test. Negative test after negative test proved that our attempt at becoming pregnant wasn’t as easy as we’d previously thought.

In late spring 2013, I started to read blogs about women who were struggling with conceiving. I came across dozens of stories about women who tracked their basal body temperature, kept notes on cervical mucus, and took ovulation tests to predict when in their cycle would be the best time for intercourse.  Naturally I hopped on these ideas – only to become so disappointed when I’d see my basal body temperature the same. Or when the ovulation test said I was ovulating but we had no luck with conception.

This led me to seeing a reproductive endocrinologist who initially diagnosed me with PCOS.  After a lengthy medical exam (and quite invasive at that), we decided to do one round of Clomid in October of 2013 and see if that helped with us conceiving a baby.  That round came and went and no baby. My periods had always been irregular, which made taking pregnancy tests difficult because I never quite knew when I was “late”.  You never know disappointment until a pregnancy test shows up as negative, time and time again. We could have gone the IVF route, because at the time we had healthy insurance that was willing to pay a significant portion of the costs – but for many couples, insurance plans often don’t cover infertility treatments.  The Stork OTC, which is a medical device used at home during ovulation, would have been perfect for my husband and I during this time.  It’s the “next step” option when you’re struggling with conception and you’re trying to avoid the costly reproductive systems from your medical professional.





Thanksgiving rolled around and I was just so tired of tracking my body temperature and peeing on an ovulation predictor kit. I didn’t like taking Clomid because of the risks it had with multiples in pregnancy so we decided one round was enough.  I told my husband I just wanted to stop and enjoy the holidays. I wanted a baby to come naturally, or at least let God decide when we were ready to be parents.

Much to our surprise, we found out on New Years’ Eve that we were expecting – about six weeks after we stopped trying. We weren’t preventing either – we just wanted nature to run its course. 



Fast forward to August 2017 and we’re the happy parents to TWO beautiful girls – Elizabeth will be three in a few weeks and Katherine will be 17 months.



If you’re one of those couples who is struggling to conceive, a new product is on the market that is safe and has proven to be effective – The Stork OTC.  The Stork is similar to cervical cap insemination, which is an effective technique used by healthcare professionals for many years, but it’s able to be used in the comfort of your own home, with just you and your spouse (or significant other). 






The Stork OTC is available at your local Target, in the family planning section next to ovulation test kits and is currently buy 1 Stork OTC, Get 1 Stork OTC 50% at Target from 8/6 - 8/19!

  8. Thank you for sharing your story!! It took us almost three years to conceive our son. I did four rounds of clomid -- thankfully, besides some moodiness, I didn't have any side effects but I know many who simply can't take any kind of medication. It's nice to know products like this exist!

  9. Return Lost Love Spells That Really Work
    “LOVE, Happiness, Care is the key fo LIFE”. That was the word from Dr happy when I consulted his powerful Love Spell. I married the wrong man; I realized that after Three years of our unfruitful marriage. Everything was going from Best to Worst in our life, no child, I got demoted from work after our marriage, my husband was sacked a year after. His application for new job in various offices was constantly declined even though he was qualified enough. I was made to take care of my family with the low income I earn get that wasn’t enough to pay our rent. We keep praying a seeking for help from some people, my friends laugh at me behind because I was advised not to get married yet.It was one Thursday night that my husband woke me up and told me that has thought enough about our crisis, he said that our crisis is not ordinary and it’s beyond our spiritual level. He suggested we should consult Dr happy from testimonies he showed me online about how he has been helping families. I was afraid, I don’t like evil or spell but I supported him to contact him if he can help us. We consulted him via happylovespell2@gmail.com and he replied positively after 20munites with congratulating email that he can help us but he will need our pure heart and trusts in his work if he will cast the spell on us and purify our life. We agreed to his terms. He cast the spell and told us to expect results within 5days. I waited for three days nothing happened, so I started having doubt and blaming my husband for emailing Dr happy. It was on the fifth day that my husband was called for an interview and he got a well-paying work, I was prompted to a higher position. I missed my period on the 5th day and it was confirmed that I am with a baby. Things have really changed for us for good and we now have our own house and cars. I will never forget what Dr happy told us “LOVE is the key fo LIFE”, this word keep me going. People that laughed at us are coming close for help and I am delighted to welcome them because my family is now blessed. Dr happy is a savior and man that keep to his word even when I doubted his powers at the end of the spell. Thank to your Oracle for helping us plz contact him http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ for more details email.....happylovespell2@gmail.com or add him on whats-app +2348133873774
