Romance in marriage is very delicate and should be continuously nurtured, or it may fade away, including while trying to conceive. 

Infertility is a huge challenge that can destroy not only romance but also the marriage itself.

Women suffer more than their fair share when it comes to infertility. Society assumes the woman is generally responsible when a couple struggles to conceive when it is actually about a 50/50 split between men and women.

Sexual pleasure is an integral aspect of sexual wellness that can dramatically affect a couple’s daily lives. For instance, hormonal contraception can reduce the sexual desire in women, and the condom can reduce the sexual pleasure of the couple.

Women produce one egg per month that lasts 24-36 hours. If the egg is not fertilized within this short window, the body continues the menstrual process and expels it. So timing is critical. There are a few signs that indicate ovulation. Many expensive devices can monitor ovulation; however, none of them are precisely accurate.

Cervical mucus is the most accurate way to pinpoint your fertile window. The FemCap, an FDA-approved device, can collect the cervical mucus directly from the source with astonishing accuracy.
