Like many couples who have been trying to conceive (TTC), the stress and pressure of it can take a toll on your physical health.
Sasha* and her partner, who struggle with erectile dysfunction (ED) during sex, faced all of the TTC anxiety and more. If you haven’t heard of ED, Johns Hopkins Medicine defines it as “the persistent inability to achieve or maintain” an erection during sexual intercourse. That’s why Sasha and her S.O. knew that conventional procreative methods were not for them.
Wanting their conception journey to be a shared, enjoyable experience where they were both comfortable and happy, the U.K. couple decided to explore other options. That’s when they chanced upon the twoplus Applicator and decided to give the home insemination kit a go.
And good thing they did, because they successfully conceived after four months of trying! Keep scrolling to read Sasha’s pregnancy success story with twoplus.

Sasha Shares Her Experience With the twoplus Applicator
Interview responses were edited for clarity.
Q: Hi, Sasha! Tell us a bit about yourself! How old are you and your partner? Where do you live in the U.K. and what do you both work as?
A: Hi, I’m 29 years old, and my partner is 39 years old. We both live in NE, England. I work in the local authority adult social care industry, and my partner works in the banking industry.
Q: You’ve mentioned that you and your partner used twoplus as your sole form of TTC for the last 4 months. Could you share more about your fertility struggles as a couple before the pregnancy and why twoplus was your only option?
A: We wanted to use the twoplus Applicator as erectile dysfunction (ED) was an obstacle in our TTC journey.
Before using twoplus, we knew that trying to conceive conventionally was not feasible. The thought of TTC without twoplus added unnecessary pressure and stress for us.
We aimed to create a stress-free and enjoyable conception experience for both of us.
Q: Were you diagnosed with any medical conditions relating to fertility by a licensed healthcare professional, and what tests did you do?
A: Neither of us was diagnosed with any fertility conditions.
Q: Before twoplus, what else have you tried in your TTC journey before using twoplus Fertility? How often did you use the Applicator before you got pregnant?
A: We did not use any other alternative conception aids while TTC.
We used the Applicator for four months before successfully getting pregnant! Throughout this period, we used it about 2-10 times and did so more often in the fourth month, and we got lucky!
Q: Was the Applicator easy to use? Was it uncomfortable after inserting, and did you have any trouble using the fertility tool?
A: The twoplus Applicator was easy to use and very comfortable. We did not face any troubles using the Applicator.
Q: Congratulations on getting pregnant with the twoplus Applicator! Is this your first successful pregnancy? How long have you been trying to conceive?
A: We have been trying to conceive for 4 months, and this is our first successful pregnancy!
Q: What made you decide to try for a baby and start a family with your partner?
A: We’re not married and have no immediate plans to be. We felt we were at the right point in our relationship. We both have very stable jobs and financial income, and we’re at an age that felt right for us.
Q: Did you adopt any lifestyle changes to improve your odds of conceiving?
A: Yes, we cut back on our alcohol consumption.
Q: Would you recommend the twoplus Applicator to other people who may have difficulties with natural conception?
A: Absolutely! I would recommend it to anyone trying to conceive.
Q: If you could go back to the beginning of your TTC journey, what would you have done differently? Also, what would you suggest to other couples who are TTC?
A: I would have started tracking my ovulation even before TTC than in the first 1-2 months of trying.
TTC should be a mutually enjoyable experience where both parties feel comfortable and happy. twoplus enabled us to achieve this! It’s important to find joy in the journey while also focusing on the ultimate goal.
The conception aids from twoplus alleviated any pressure or stress we had while supporting our TTC journey.
