This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and The Stork OTC. All opinions are my own.
When deciding to have more kids, it can be a conversation that can either be one that leaves you feeling elated or in some cases absolutely devastated.
In my case, it was the latter.
The process of trying to get pregnant can be an emotionally draining one. The two week period of time between ovulation and taking a test was one of pure anxiety for me. I remembered thinking that every single symptom of nausea to being able to smell water was a sure sign that I was pregnant. It felt like those two weeks dragged on forever.
Then the time came to test.
After taking the test waiting the allotted time, needless to say, I was devastated.
I remembered telling my husband and having him tell me to be thankful with the four kids that we have. This had been the third time we tried and failed (in addition to two miscarriages). Dealing with secondary infertility was not something that was an easy conversation to have with anyone around me.
I already had four healthy and beautiful children at home. So in a way I felt that it was wrong of me to complain about not being able to successfully conceive anymore. I had plenty of close friends who dealt with infertility, and didn’t even have one child, there was no way I could talk to them about what I am going through.
Waiting cannot only be emotionally draining and frustrating, it can also physically painful. (There were many times where I became physically ill and even the emotional stress took a toll on my healthy).
While it can feel like you’re alone, you’re not. 1 in 6 couples are not able to conceive during the first 12 months attempting, additionally, 6.7 million women ages 15-44 do not have the ability successfully become pregnant, nor carry a baby to term.
For many couples spending tens of thousands of dollars on fertility treatments isn’t a realistic option. Most private health insurances do not cover treatments, and this expense can place a burden on many families.
If you struggle with infertility and are looking to try something different, I want to share an amazing product called Stork OTC. It is a cervical cap insemination method that you can do in the privacy of your own home. This method is shown to have a pregnancy success rate of up to 20%, and is considered to be a less invasive method.
