How is the Béa Applicator better than a syringe?

A straw or syringe method deposits or injects semen into the vagina, so the sperm are near the cervix, essentially mimicking intercourse.


The Béa Applicator places our custom cervical cap against the cervix, holding the semen in place for up to one hour. This will minimise the contact of semen in the vagina (where the pH can reduce sperm quality), reduce semen backflow and increase the exposure time to the cervical mucus. By using a cervical cap, the concentration of sperm in the cervical mucus can be 3.23 times higher compared with sexual intercourse. Pregnancy rates with a cervical cap can be nearly 3 times higher compared to straw or syringe insemination.
