Introducing the Béa Applicator

The Turkey Baster gets an upgrade

Move over turkey baster.

So what actually is Béa's ICI Treatment?

Much like a baster (but obviously much better), the Béa Applicator helps you deliver semen to the cervix, where it says up there for an extended amount of time.

Béa's ICI treatment has two key parts: The Béa Cervical Cap (think semen delivery), and the Béa Applicator (now think cervical cap delivery). These parts work together to help you do ICI at home.

The Béa Cervical Cap

The Béa Cervical Cap is the most important part of the treatment – it delivers the 'intracervical insemination' part of ICI. Béa's Cervical Cap is designed to hold semen at the opening of the cervix to encourage as many sperm as possible to enter the uterus. The Béa Cervical Cap arrives folded and ready to deploy inside the Béa Applicator, and has a removal string too.

The Béa Applicator

The cervix is located at the back of the vaginal canal, and is not easy to reach without a little help. The Béa Applicator works like a tampon applicator, precisely placing the Béa Cervical Cap at the cervix for the highest efficacy. The Béa Applicator comes fitted with a funnel, designed for pouring semen down into the Béa Cervical Cap (folded within the applicator) without spillage.

The Béa Treatment Kit

The Béa Treatment Kit brings it all together. It's a complete treatment experience with 2 Béa Applicators, 2 semen collection containers (to deliver semen into the cap with no intercourse needed, yay!) and a complete digital treatment guide. We are here to support – you can call our medical team for help anytime throughout your treatment.

Does ICI work?

Ok sure. But what does using the Béa Applicator feel like?

Meet the Béa Team. The women who built this, if you will. We donated our... bits... to the cause, and tested the Béa Applicator out so we could tell you what it feels like.

"Smooth. Simple. Comfortable. Surprisingly easy. Like using a tampon applicator."

Baster 2.0 is what happens when a team of smart, passionate people decide to build a fertility treatment that is better than what's out there. That is safer. More effective. Easier to use. Evidence-based. Need we say more?

Hear it straight from people who have used the Béa Applicator.

ICI in 4 simple steps with the Béa Applicator and Cervical Cap

Step 1

Collect a semen sample into the container provided, and pour the semen into the Béa Applicator through the orange funnel. Semen will flow down into the Béa Cervical Cap, which is located inside the Béa Applicator. Remove the funnel.

Step 2

Lie in a comfortable position and gently insert the Béa Applicator into the vagina. Once inserted, turn the handle to release the Béa Cervical Cap onto the cervix. Withdraw the applicator from the vagina.

Step 3

The Béa Cervical Cap is now in place! Leave the cap in place for up to one hour. The Béa Cervical Cap works a little like a menstrual cup, so you shouldn't feel anything, and can go about your day as normal.

Step 4

After one hour, remove the Béa Cervical Cap using the removal string hanging outside the body (like a tampon). That's it. ICI done! Go about your day knowing you've given yourself the best chance of conceiving.
