I wasn't prepared for this part.

The logical "Ph.D. in Biology" and data scientist part of my brain likes facts; it wants to measure and compare things to attempt to understand them. So when I started this company earlier this year, the science behind why this works for people was the most straightforward aspect of the company, especially since I have a daughter to show for it!

I wanted more people to know intracervical insemination (ICI) might be an affordable option for them to try at home. I also wanted to offer people the same scientifically designed kit I made because I couldn't find one on the market that met my rigorous scientific standards.

  • I knew PherDal worked for me as an alternative to expensive IUI infertility treatments.

  • I knew why PherDal worked and that a 2018 study backed that up. That study showed that IUI and ICI have no difference in their live birth rate, making ICI an affordable fertility option for people to try.

  • I knew how PherDal worked. PherDal decreases the distance sperm need to travel. Being sterilized helps avoid three known bacterial species significantly increased in the microbiome of women with unexplained infertility. The syringe avoids any anatomical conditions hindering sperm travel, and that is to name a few!

  • I knew PherDal would work for others because science showed it could, and I proved my concept when my husband and I conceived my daughter.

I knew all of these facts, which is why I started this company; To get people pregnant. My goal was to help one other person become pregnant. If I did that, this would be a worthwhile adventure no matter the rest of the story.
