Why Our Founder’s Story Matters

In November of 2004, our founder and CEO, Greg Minow, became a complete paraplegic as a result of spinal injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident. Over the past 5 years, Greg and his wife, Alicia, decided that they would like to have children. While both Greg and Alicia were otherwise fertile – infertility treatments would make little difference, in other words – Greg’s disability presented a challenge. At this point in time, they began seeking out at-home insemination options. However the syringes on the market at the time had sharp edges, were uncomfortable to use, and really took the joy out of the moment – and that’s where the Life Choice syringe was born!
Why This Matters For You
Hope. It may sound silly, but it’s what gets us through the worst. Through injury and paralysis, hope that through some combination of determination and ‘infertility treatment’ (which ended up being unnecessary in Greg and Alicia’s case), they might have the children they had always dreamed of. We’d like nothing more than for their story and the availability of the Life Choice syringe to inspire the hope you should have about your chances for conception.
Cost. Life Choice is an affordable alternative to infertility treatment. Before spending thousands of dollars on in vitro fertilization or infertility treatments, try self insemination! Difficulties in conception are both physically and emotionally draining – we wouldn’t recommend adding the financial stress of a drained bank account for infertility treatment unless absolutely necessary. It might seem obvious, but you should take careful note – if either you or your partner are infertile, you should speak with your doctor regarding what infertility treatment or treatments might be best for you.
Choice. Before the Life Choice syringe, you had to face down the lesser of two evils, to be blunt: costly infertility treatment / in vitro fertilization or painful, mechanical self insemination. Infertility treatments put your life under the microscope – your health and circumstances need to be out in the open for the doctors to do their work. Now, that’s not to say that infertility treatment might not be called for in some cases – we firmly believe you should explore alternatives first. The Life Choice syringe brings comfort, privacy, and efficiency to what could otherwise be a trying process for you and your partner. So basically, it’s an alternative – an alternative that preserves the joy and special nature of conceiving in comfort and the privacy of your own home.
Basically, it matters because we’ve been where you’re going – we believe that leveraging our experience on your behalf, spreading the word, is important. It matters because we’ve taken a situation that feels hopeless and made it less so.

Trying to conceive a baby with the Life Choice syringe? Not sure how often you should inject? Read on.

Over the years, we at Life Choice Today have accumulated some ‘common sense’ knowledge about trying to conceive a baby. How’d we come by this, you ask? Well, it’s simple, really – our CEO became a paraplegic after a tragic motorcycle accident. In trying to conceive a baby, he and his wife have experienced first-hand the anxiety of doctors’ visits, the frustration of conflicting doctors’ opinions, and the uncertainty surrounding their future.
At Life Choice Today, we believe that our experience is your advantage. We’ve been through it before, and are committed to helping you avoid the mistakes we made. We also firmly believe that trying to conceive a baby should be a joyous, private process, if at all possible – we’re glad you made the choice to try our Life Choice syringe as one of your first steps toward trying to conceive.
So let’s get down to business – how often should you inject to maximize the chances of success when trying to conceive a baby?
The Answer: It depends on who you ask. We’ve asked a number of doctors this ourselves, and guess what? Different doctors give different answers with different explanations. Some say “Inseminate every three days – don’t overdo it.” Others say “Inseminate every day – you’re trying to conceive a baby, and the ideal time for you could be any day.”
Now, we’re not doctors by any means – in other words, we can’t give you medical advice – but we can share with you what worked for us!
Life Choice: What Worked for Us While Trying to Conceive a Baby
Chart your menstrual cycle. We used the Basal Body Temperature (BBT) method (the thermometer is available here). After some quick research, we found that women tend to ovulate between days 13-15 after the beginning of their menstrual cycle. Do a little research online on how to properly carry out the BBT Charting method.
Inject near your ovulation time. Especially important for women trying to conceive a baby – you’re most fertile when you ovulate. What worked for us was inseminating once 3 days before ovulation, again the day of ovulation, and once the day after.
Relax and above all: have fun. The conclusion we came to is that injection frequency is a matter of personal preference, and of some debate between doctors. What’s most important of all, though, is that you and your partner enjoy trying to conceive a baby. Stress consumes energy – energy that your body needs to conserve for the act of conception. So take it from us – sit back, relax, and enjoy trying to conceive!

Life Choice Vs. Fertility Treatment: Should I?

By visiting our website, you’ve got one thing in common with our other visitors – you dream of one day having children, but may be experiencing some difficulty. We’re here to help – we’ve authored this informational article to compare and contrast our product, the Life Choice Today syringe, with fertility treatments. With this information, we hope you’ll be a bit better equipped to choose among the options available to help you achieve your dream.
First of all, let’s be clear at the outset – the Life Choice Today syringe is not a fertility treatment. Fertility treatments are designed to enhance a semi- or infertile couple’s fertility enough to conceive a child. Life Choice, on the other hand, is a self insemination method designed to help fertile couples with physical difficulties try to conceive a child – before spending thousands of dollars and experiencing the pressure and stress of a medical procedure or a fertility treatment.
In general, you should use Life Choice if:
You and your partner are fertile. Fertility is essential – if either you or your partner are infertile, you may want to focus more on fertility treatments. On the other hand, this product may be used to maximize your chances of conception in conjunction with a successful fertility treatment.
You experience physical impediments to conception. In general, you should use Life Choice if you have any physical impediment to conception that fertility treatments will not improve. A good example of a physical impediment that the Life Choice syringe can assist with is paralysis. Our syringe works exceptionally well in conjunction with penile vibrators like Ferticare, designed to facilitate conception in victims of paralysis – our CEO uses the product, himself!
You don’t know whether you’re fertile. Before spending thousands of dollars on stressful fertility treatments, try conceiving in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Conception shouldn’t feel like a medical experiment – Life Choice is a great way to maximize your chances of conception without resorting too soon to fertility treatment.
Do you have more questions about how Life Choice and fertility treatments compare? Any further questions in general? Ask Us.

Self Insemination (or DIY Insemination) – Using the Life Choice Syringe

Like any Do-It-Yourself (DIY) activity, DIY insemination comes with instructions. With the Life Choice Syringe, we’ve streamlined both the product itself and the process of self insemination – we’re dedicated to making conception stress-free for you, so that you can experience the happiness of bringing a child into the world.
But yes, there are a few instructions to follow, aimed at maximizing your chances of conceiving through self insemination. We’ve tried to make them simple, informative, and, dare we add, enjoyable? So relax, enjoy, and let us know of any suggestions you may have to help us improve this guide to DIY insemination.
Step 1: Keep it Clean. In the hygienic sense, we mean! With self insemination, you’re dealing with sensitive fluids and areas of the body – staying clean increases the chances of DIY insemination success. This means washing your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before using the syringe. Oh, and our syringes are Single Use Only – so toss it when you’re done!
Step 2: Special Delivery! Self insemination relies on your fertility. In this case, as we know, every drop counts – position the syringe with the funnel end close to the penis. After ejaculation, let the fluid collect inside of the syringe body.
Step 3: Take a deep breath. Anxious? Relax – DIY insemination isn’t rocket science! We’re serious – self insemination’s easy with the Life Choice Syringe. You’re past the hardest part.
Step 4: Preparation. Insert the plunger into the body of the syringe by about a half inch – the red plug should be pointing down while you do this. Now, tip the syringe upside down, with the red plug pointing up. Next, remove the plug. (These steps put the ‘self’ in self insemination, we know.) Squeeze any remaining air out of the plunger. At this point, be careful not to push out any semen – the point is to retain as much as you can.
Step 5: Lock and Load! You should now lubricate the syringe tip with a lubricant designed for self insemination, like Pre-Seed, should you so desire.
Step 6: Special Delivery, Pt. 2. Gently slide the syringe into the vagina until reaching the baseplate – if the syringe reaches the baseplate before full insertion, don’t force it (your partner will appreciate it). Slowly squeeze the plunger to release the semen. You’ve just given your partner the best shot at natural conception that DIY insemination can offer!
Step 7: Wait just a minute… Seriously! Leave the syringe in place for 60 seconds, to avoid pulling semen out along with it.
Step 8: Breathe. You’re done – it’s out of your hands! Relax.

Trying to conceive? Know before you go (to the fertility clinic)

So you’re trying to get pregnant – you’re excited and more than prepared, maybe a little nervous. But mostly excited, we’d bet – congratulations! We’ve prepared this article on some pregnancy-related medical statistics to help relieve some of the anxiety and uncertainty you may be experiencing, whether you’ve just started trying to conceive or have been having difficulty for some time. We’re convinced that not only should you have the opportunity to experience the joy that conceiving a child brings into your life, but that you should also have the necessary statistics to make informed choices about your reproductive circumstances, as well.
Let’s take a look at some numbers – while each couple’s case is different, these statistics will give you a rough idea of what you should expect when trying to get pregnant.
10-25%: the odds that a healthy couple will conceive in any given month, depending on the woman’s age. The 10% figure corresponds to a woman in her 30s, while the 25% corresponds to ladies in their early 20s.
65-94%: the odds that a healthy couple will conceive within the first year of trying to get pregnant. As you age, it becomes slightly more difficult to conceive, but the message is clear: persistence pays off!
4-12: the average number of months it takes a woman to conceive. This varies directly with age – the younger you are, the less time it takes.
So give me the bottom line – what does this mean?
This means that if you haven’t been trying to conceive for a solid year, you should:
Relax and enjoy it! You’re in the same boat with a large number of people. Trying to conceive, to create a new life, should bring you joy and unity. Remember – persistence pays off.
Stop worrying. Stress has both physical and emotional components. The more you stress, the less energy your body has to maintain fertility.
Keep trying. Maybe it’s time to try some new techniques, as well – for this reason, we’ve created the Life Choice Today syringe. It provides a natural, inexpensive path to conception for fertile couples trying to get pregnant – when used in addition to other tools like Ferticare, it can even overcome physical disabilities like paralysis. While a fertility clinic may end up being your best bet, explore your alternatives and maximize your chances before breaking the bank. And above all – persistence pays off.
That’s all for now! Remember, if you have any questions at all, whether in regards to the Life Choice syringe and its effectiveness for couples trying to conceive or otherwise, don’t forget to Ask Us.
