Pennsylvania Women's Health Company Says 'The Stork' Is The First Step in Trying to Conceive
January 18, 2013
Introduced in December 2011 by Rinovum Women's Health, The Stork is a device meant for couples to safely perform insemination in the privacy of their own homes. Pittsburgh Inventor and CEO, Stephen Bollinger, says the technique allows for a high concentration of semen to be delivered just outside the opening of the uterus. The product is not yet approved by the FDA.
Bollinger believes that many couples not yet diagnosed with infertility, but still having trouble conceiving, will use The Stork before enlisting the help of a fertility doctor to conceive. Single women using donor sperm may also benefit from the conception aid system which claims to deliver success rates similar to those of intrauterine insemination (IUI).
