TTC Performance Anxiety Conquered With Mosie!

My husband and I got married on August 29, 2015. We decided to start a family in May of 2017. We tried for a few months with no success. I thought something was wrong with me so I decided to do my own research and realized our timing was off...

I had to learn the physiology of my body. As a teenager I was always taught that you can get pregnant every single time you have sex which is obviously not true. I started to track my period, get to know how long my cycle was and calculate my fertile days which still didn’t work.

I then decided to buy ovulation kits and the first time I got a positive kit I was super excited!! I told my husband that we had a very short window to have sex, we would try and nothing would happen....my husband started to develop performance anxiety. He difficult a hard time getting and maintaining an erection. This went on for months.

We both started to get increasingly frustrated. We went to our family doctor for help in June 2018, and she told us that there may be underlying issues that we needed to work out and suggested counseling.

We were open to counseling, but I felt that the clock was ticking. I was 35 years old and almost every article I have ever read talked about how much your fertility decreases once you are 35 years of age and older not to mention all the health issues the baby could have. I was worried.

I have a friend who had gotten pregnant through IUI because her and her husband were unsuccessful in getting pregnant naturally. I mentioned this to my doctor. She was reluctant for us to go this route because we were two healthy individuals that technically hadn’t tried naturally. So wanting to seek assistance in our doctor’s didn’t make sense which looking back I get, but I was so desperate to get pregnant and tired of “trying to try”.

The fertility clinic reached out to us and sent us a lot of forms for us to fill out prior to us going for our first appointment. The questions on the form were very personal and my husband and I didn’t feel comfortable answering any of these questions; we must of rescheduled our appointment 4 times.

I decided to google other couples who had trouble getting pregnant. The more I dug I started to see more stories of couples that used home insemination kits before trying IUI or IVF. I then started to look into home insemination kit. The first couple I came across looked painful or looked like I could injure myself in some way. Finally, I came across Mosie and what I liked about it was that it was small and resembled a tampon. I immediately sent my husband a link to your website as he was away on a business trip at the time. As soon as he read through all the stories on your website and watched the videos he told me to order the kit.

I ordered the kit in October however we weren’t able to use it until December 4th because of my husbands busy work schedule; he was out of the country a lot.

We were only able to use one syringe and had planned on using the second one but my husband had an emergency and we missed the window. I was sure I wasn’t pregnant so I ordered another kit to come in time for my next cycle.

My period was due on December 16th but didn’t come. I didn’t think anything if it because my period had been late up to two days before. When the third day came and still no period I began to get worried thinking something might be wrong but I still didn’t think I was pregnant. By day five I had told my husband I was late and he told me to take a pregnancy test even though I didn’t experience any of the symptoms I saw on google for early pregnancy. I was shocked when the pregnancy test came back positive I screamed and cried. Finally my dream has come true!

We are forever grateful to you and your husband for taking the feeling of shame, pain, stress and cost out of conceiving. The process was seamless I didn’t even believe I was pregnant after the first try with only one syringe! We are saving our other kit for when we decide to have a second child.

Thank you so much Maureen and Marc, Mosie baby changed our lives and we are forever thankful ❤.
