Women's Fertility and Reproductive Health

Women's fertility and overall reproductive health are important topics to understand. Without a proper understanding of how your body works, it can be challenging to understand the ins and outs of conception. Thankfully, there is ample information on the Stork OTC blog that can help you on your journey to becoming a parent.

As a starting point, it's smart to brush up on topics like ovulation, implantation, menstrual cycles, hormones, and your cervix. These are all pretty important elements that can impact your ability to get pregnant.

Women's Fertility: Hormones 

Women's Fertility: Ovulation and Implantation

  • Ovulation is an important part of your menstrual cycle. If you don't ovulate, you can't get pregnant.
  • As you go through the phases of your menstrual cycle, your ovaries begin developing follicles. These will later be released as eggs ready to be fertilized.
  • When an egg is released, it will wait for sperm to fertilize it. If fertilization happens (yay!), your egg will move toward your uterus for implantation. One key part of women's fertility is the endometrium -- it plays an important role in implantation.
  • Testing for ovulation can help you know when you should be actively trying to conceive.
  • Sometimes, your body may not work in the way it should. This can lead to ovulation issues.
  • You may not need to worry about your ovarian reserve in your twenties and thirties but as you get older, you'll want to have this tested.
  • If you have questions about ovulation, you're not alone.

Success Stories and Reviews

“We got pregnant. My wife and I lost our first baby due to complications after 9 months of trying. After a second try and 6 months we tried the stork and she got pregnant. … The stork itself was pretty neat. It worked no problem for us… People complain about it being a single use product. I’m sure the company has to make it single use for safety and sterilization reasons. The $80 per use is still cheaper than a fertility clinic. Which we were going to this morning after a 2-month wait, but then we took a last minute test and found out we were pregnant…”

“My husband and I have been trying to conceive for nearly two years. He has a low sperm count which has contributed to the problem. This month we used The Stork along with Premama Fertility Drink and FertiliTea and at 11 DPO we have tested positive… I recommend The Stork. I don’t think I’d have that HPT Positive without it.”

“After a successful IUI cycle, I conceived our first daughter. When we were ready to try for our second child, I was devastated to find out that my insurance no longer covered infertility treatments. My husband did a lot of research and found The Stork. We ordered three of them and tracked my ovulation. After using The Stork on my three most fertile days, we were thrilled to find out we were pregnant! I will forever be grateful for this product, and I would recommend it to anyone trying to conceive”

“I bought this because the fertility tracking app Ovia suggested it and I was all out of ideas after trying to get pregnant after almost a year. I was skeptical because nothing worked before. But this product in conjunction with perfect timing using my Ovia app I used it and ended up pregnant! I bought and used two just to be sure! And it worked!!!”
Jocelyn, Maryland
“My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 3 years with the help of an RE, after undergoing lots of treatments and tests we fell into the “unexplained” category along with a low sperm morphology count. National Infertility Awareness Week I reached out to review the Stork because I had been reading about it and was intrigued to see maybe if it would work for us and it is definitely more cost efficient. We were averaging $700 a month for IUI and injectable medication versus $80-90 at the store… Afterwards, we said our prayers and hoped this might work for us. On 10 DPO we received a super duper faint positive and I almost thought I was just seeing stuff. The next morning I tested again and saw a faint line and took a digital which said “YES” best word I could have ever seen. I am without a doubt certain the Stork OTC helped us in our long 3 year journey! We went to the Dr. today and saw our baby via ultrasound and just lost it for that we are both forever grateful and thankful to the Stork for helping us in our journey!!”
