The Stork uses cervical cap insemination. A well-established technique used by healthcare professionals for decades. The Stork helps bridge the gap between natural intercourse and in-clinic, assisted treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilisation (IVF) or clomifene. Cervical cap insemination has a recorded success rate of around 20% (1,2) which is comparable to IUI – with recorded success rates between 16-21% (2,3). The Stork’s new and innovative technology enables people to carry out this technique simply and easily, in the privacy and comfort of their own homes.
