After featuring ToConceive as a guest blogger, a few weeks ago, we were intrigued to learn a little bit more and decided to interview Dr. Thompson the creative force behind this cool new product. Here’s what he had to say:
What inspired you to create ToConceive?
For over 30 years, I have attempted to help women achieve conception, pregnancy, and motherhood. My wife and I weren’t able to start our family until we were well into our 30s and now have four adult sons. My desire to help couples achieve pregnancy started with the development of the Laparoscopic Gamate IntraFallopian Transfer (GIFT) procedure, one form of Assisted Reproductive Technology. I also hold the patent for five other gynecological procedures. ToConceive developed out my want to continue to build on what I’ve already done to help couples get pregnant. ToConceive provides couples with a natural and effective way to conceive.
“After two years of marriage, my husband and I decided to start a family. I was 29. I stopped my birth control pills and started using ToConceive to help me become pregnant, because I didn’t want to be over 30 and without a child. I got pregnant in five months, and now have a beautiful, healthy two month old son.“ –Laura
“At 33, after attempting to conceive for more than two years, I was diagnosed with poly cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Dr Thompson prescribed clomid first, and then metformin, to achieve regular monthly ovulations. After regular ovulations, using ToConceive, and eight months, I became pregnant with our first son. We now have two beautiful sons, and the second only took three months to achieve, but with ovulation medication and the ToConceive.“ –Lisa
The leading cause of male subfertility issue is spermatogenesis, which occurs when sperm develop abnormally because of elevated temperatures in the scrotum. Inadequate sperm maturation increases abnormal sperm forms, leading to a decreased chance of conception. In-vivo sperm capacitation, achieved by using ToConceive, selects out immature and abnormal sperm that lack capacitation. The process also selects out sperm coated with anti-sperm antibodies or strips off those antibodies to allow for proper capacitation. ToConceive promotes the natural process to remove abnormal sperm, allowing only the fittest sperm to survive.
The use of ovulation prediction devices will insure that intercourse timing is optimal for conception. Additionally, the use of SpermCheck-Fertility will insure that your husband’s sperm count is adequate. Other steps a couple can take include quitting smoking, reducing alcohol intake, getting regular moderate exercise and maintaining healthy eating habits.
