The Conception Kit Aides Military Couples FDA Cleared Treatment Helps Wounded, Others Start a Family
For couples where one, or both, partners serve in the military – their patriotic service doesn’t have to translate into sacrificing the opportunity to start a family.
Just last month, a treatment that helps couples overcome infertility privately and at home, donated 100 Conception Kits to military families. To meet the challenge of a surge in genital injuries to male troops in Afghanistan and Iraq from IEDs – and to help military personnel with limited available time with their partner due to deployments – the Conception Kit is a possible solution.
“So long as the soldier can produce some level of sperm on his own, The Conception Kit could help,” American Legion Post 175 Officer, and Conceivex President and Founder Michael La Vean said. “We are honored to do our part and make The Conception Kit available to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.”
To obtain one of the 100 free Conception Kits, you can fax a valid prescription, photocopy of military ID or American Legion card, and the delivery address to: 616-642- 0257. FDA cleared, drug- and hormone-free, the kit – when it is not being donated – is covered by insurance (unlike other infertility treatments) with a $30-$75 co-pay, and just buying some of the kit’s contents (including ovulation predictors and three pregnancy tests) over-the- counter costs more than the co-pay. It is available at more than 65,000 pharmacies in the U.S., including Walmart, Target, Walgreens, and Rite Aid – and is an insurance-covered benefit for many patients via their employer’s pharma benefits manager (including Express Scripts, CVS/Caremark, ProCare RX, and others).
The FDA required clinical trials on the placement of the kit’s proprietary Conception Cap® (a cervical cap that is used for insemination at home) and instructions by patients. During the trials, 24 percent of the patients got pregnant.
