The next step in your path to parenthood starts here

Good news! The Béa Treatment could help you conceive

Your results are in!

Thanks for taking the time to complete our assessment. Based on your answers we think that the Béa ICI fertility treatment could help you get pregnant. Below is your personalised guide on getting started with Béa.

Béa and Endometriosis

Does the Béa Treatment work with Endometriosis?

Yes, in most cases it does!

The Béa Treatment Kit could be a good treatment option for mild or moderate endometriosis. The Béa Applicator places our custom cervical cap against the cervix, holding semen in place for up to one hour. It increases the exposure to the cervical mucus, minimises the contact of semen in the vagina (where the pH can reduce sperm quality) and reduces semen backflow.

Will my Endometriosis stage impact whether I can use Béa?

It depends if you have mild, moderate or severe endometriosis.

When you were diagnosed with endometriosis, your doctor may have mentioned what stage you have, ranging from mild to severe. Mild sufferers will be suitable whereas more severe cases may not be might not be suitable. We’ve summarised all of this for you in more detail here:

Endometriosis: What is it?

Is the Béa Treatment hormone-free?

Yes, it is.

We appreciate that some fertility drugs can cause endometriosis to flare but our intracervical insemination treatment is completely hormone-free and considered a safe option for those with the condition.

What is the efficacy of using a treatment programme such as Béa?

Evidence proves ICI has a success rate of up to 50% over 6 cycles.

Béa and Male Factor Issues

Does the Béa Treatment work with male factor infertility?

Yes, in most cases it does!

The Béa Treatment could be a good treatment option for male factor infertility. One of the key parts of the treatment that can be beneficial for those with low sperm quality – is the cervical cap. The cervical cap concentrates semen at the opening of the cervix, delivering up to 3.2x more sperm into the cervical mucus than sexual intercourse, helping them get where they need to go. In addition, the cervical cap minimises the contact of semen in the vagina (where the pH can reduce sperm quality) and reduces semen backflow.

Is Béa a good option for people with a low sperm count?

Yes, the Béa Treatment is suitable if you have a low count. You still need to ejaculate into a cup but our cervical cap does the work of getting sperm to the cervix.

I have a combination of a few underlying infertility problems, can Béa still work for me?

If you have a combination of low sperm count and low sperm motility, for example, the Béa Treatment might be suitable but we can't say for certain what your chances of pregnancy might be.

It's important to note - if no sperm or no moving sperm are found in the ejaculate - the Béa Treatment would not be suitable.

I’m taking medication to improve sperm quality and production, can I still use Béa?

Yes, medication should not negatively impact an intracervical insemination (ICI) treatment or your chance of conceiving. Sperm production is continuous and it takes on average 90 days to produce new sperm, so in some cases, you may have to wait to see the results of any medication.

Béa and PCOS

Does the Béa Treatment work with PCOS?

Yes - it does!

If you have PCOS and you know that you're ovulating, then the Béa Treatment could be a good treatment option.

PCOS, ovulation and intracervical insemination - how to get started

The Béa Applicator needs to be used around the time of ovulation for the best chances of getting pregnant.

You should use ovulation tests that you know and trust to track your cycle. In general, you should start ovulation testing 17 days before your next period is due and continue taking them until you have a positive reading.

With irregular cycles, it can be difficult to gauge when to start ovulation testing. Top tip: check the shortest cycle you've had in the past 6 months and base your testing on that cycle length.

Once you have a positive ovulation test you should use the Béa Applicator. That way – the sperm will be in place by the time you ovulate. The Béa Applicator is designed to deliver sperm to the cervix, giving sperm a better chance of getting to the fallopian tube with our custom cervical cap.

Can Béa be used alongside my PCOS medication?

Yes, the Béa Treatment is suitable if you're taking metformin to reduce insulin levels.

Will Béa be suitable with every type of PCOS symptom?

PCOS can present itself in a number of ways, with a range of different symptoms. There are three main features of PCOS and if you have at least two of these features, you may be diagnosed with PCOS. We've summarised those separate features, with information about whether the Béa Treatment might be suitable here.

Béa and Unexplained Infertility

Does the Béa Treatment work with a diagnosis of ‘unexplained infertility’?

Yes, in most cases it does!

The Béa Treatment could be a good treatment option for unexplained infertility. The Béa Applicator places our custom cervical cap against the cervix, holding semen in place for up to one hour. It increases the exposure to the cervical mucus, minimises the contact of semen in the vagina (where the pH can reduce sperm quality) and reduces semen backflow.

What does unexplained infertility really mean?

When a diagnosis of unexplained infertility is given, it is because no cause of infertility has been found with standard fertility investigations. ICI can help you conceive with unexplained infertility if the standard infertility investigations all come back normal.

How do I improve my chances of conceiving with Béa?

The Béa Treatment could be a good treatment option for unexplained infertility. The Béa Applicator places our custom cervical cap against the cervix, holding semen in place for up to one hour. It increases the exposure to the cervical mucus, delivering 3.23 times more sperm compared with sexual intercourse or straw insemination. The cap also minimises the contact of semen in the vagina (where the pH can reduce sperm quality) and reduces semen backflow.

General Questions

How does the Béa Applicator work?

The Béa Treatment is an Intracervical insemination (ICI) treatment you can do at home using the Béa Applicator. In short, the Béa Applicator works like a tampon applicator, precisely placing the Béa Cervical Cap filled with semen at the cervix. The Cervical Cap is then left in place for up to one hour before it's removed. You can learn more about the Béa Applicator and how it's used here.

What is intracervical insemination (ICI)?

Intracervical Insemination (ICI) is a fertility treatment that concentrates semen at the opening of the cervix using a cervical cap (which looks like a menstrual cup). ICI improves the chance of conceiving by encouraging more sperm to travel towards the egg for fertilisation.

ICI was around for many years before IUI and IVF were developed, and there is a lot of clinical data showing the effectiveness of ICI as a fertility treatment.
