  • Pregnancy success rate of up to 20%1.
  • Prevention of backflow of semen into the vagina5.
  • Prolonged exposure of the spermatozoa (Sperm cell) to the cervical mucus5.
  • Enables sperm to bypass the vaginal environment quickly, reducing the risk of sperm loss in the vaginal tract5.
  • Considered a less invasive method of aiding in conception with a limited number of risks6.
