Pre-Seed was the least harmful to sperm, with only a small (but still significant) decrease in sperm movement. KY lubricants were the most harmful to sperm movement, with KY Tingling reducing sperm movement to almost nothing after 60 minutes. Astroglide. Most of the general lubricants are not friendly with the vaginal natural-lube—that’ how the regular lube is killing the sperms always when it contacts with vaginal fluids. If the spermicide continues, the women can be lost their pregnancy.

In this instance, the pregnancy-friendly lube can ensure the maximum safety for fertilizing the sperms. To avoid this, couples can use lubricants. If you do use a lubricant while trying to become pregnant, choose one that’s been shown in studies to be safe and sperm-friendly, because some types can affect the sperm’s quality. These are usually labelled ‘fertility friendly’ lubricants and can be safely used when trying to conceive.

Some lubricants can damage sperm because they are not of the right pH or are not isotonic, which means they can dehydrate sperm and stop them from swimming properly. They may also contain. Unfortunately, the sorts of lube used to enhance a couple’s sex life are not conducive to conception. These personal products found in the drug store often contain a pH balance and consistency that does not support conception.

Many couples who are facing infertility need to use lubricants. One reason, the stress of having sexual intercourse on a “schedule” can lower sexual desire, which in turn can lead to a woman’s body producing less natural lubricant. Also, some fertility drugs can interfere with natural lubrication. Standard lubricants have a pH of between 4 and 5.5, which is overly acidic for the sperm to survive and perform.

On the other hand, lubes specifically designed for couples trying to conceive have an alkaline pH, which is sperm and fertility friendly. Always read the ingredients of lubricants before buying. Note that many “fertility lubricants” contain parabens, which have been linked to endocrine disruption. Dr.

These commercially available lubricants are often too acidic and can damage the sperm. This makes trying to conceive. However, it is important to know that lubricant should not be used as a form of contraception.

Using lubricants that were not designed for fertility can mean you’re hurting your chances of conceiving naturally. Some popular retail lubes can significantly disrupt sperm motility and vitality, leaving sperm immobile or killing off a majority of sperm cells after exposure to the lube.

  • for more than 4 years I try to get pregnant. but nothing worked, so I decided to follow a natural method, here you can see it: => infertilityinwomen. com <= (google it)
    I followed the method for 3 months and finally got pregnant.

  • Excellent sir. Recently my wife use lax 2% gel. But the pregnency got affected. it became molar/pearl pregnency. I suspected it might be happened due to lubricant ����

  • Hi, do you actually have problems with dryness before you try use lubricants? I mean, I’m not sure if women who do not have dryness problems, do they need to use as well?

  • After trying to get pregnant for 3 months, I made the decision that I would to try a different treatment. fruitfully, I gave a shot on the ThePregnancyFact. Com The plan is great at assisting you study your menstrual cycle and signs to discover your body`s imbalances. I’m heartening my friends to consider to plan. You could get more by visiting Google.?

  • Question. How often do you use.. I see a lot of people say first try they got pregnant using the Preseed. Should I start with one applicator and wait a few weeksmonth and see? Or how does it really work?

  • Ladies!! Please purchase pressed we have been TTC for 1 year and 7 months and we got pregnant the first time we used this!! Sending lots of baby dust!!❤️

  • I just got some. I’m praying it works. I just went through a miscarriage with my first after trying for YEARS and being convinced I couldn’t have babies. ��

  • Really didn’t think this would work for me, and maybe it was just chancebut I am 33, was TTC for 11 months and used this 2 times during my fertile window followed by holding it in with a menstrual cup for a few hours.. NOT SEXY but I am 3 weeks and 4 days pregnant! Please don’t expect it to magically work if you aren’t tracking your cycles. It will give a boost though for sperm! I used the app GLO to track my cycles as well as OPKs from amazon. Best of luck and don’t give up loves!!! ����

  • The main thing I have against this product is that it is quite expensive for the little amount the tube contains. For those of us with irregular periods (I’m talking up to 3-5 months without periods), we can’t target our TTC effort toward the unknown ovulation time, and it’s hard on the bank to buy one of these every couple of weeks.

  • been trying for months and months but heard about this, this month and I wanted to give it a try cause I seen a lot of positives.. bought it yesterday.. & I’m Currently in my fertile week!! Baby danced yesterday and planning on baby dancing up until my ovulation and a day after �� wish me luck!!

  • This is my first time trying the preseed.. hope it work for the reason my husband and I have been trying to have a baby for the last month.. and my doctor had me in treatment for the reason I was not ovulating

  • If I don’t get “egg white CM” near ovulation does that mean I may be infertile? Will this work for me in that case if I don’t get that type of CM?

  • Not to be all in your business, but I need some hope. How long after you started using this product did you get a positive please? P.S thank you for sharing!! ��������

  • Been trying for 5 years �� I am now taking prenatals and I ordered storks tea. I definitely will be trying pre-seed now! Thanks for the video ‼️��

  • Just got mine from target lets see what happens this month. Taking 1 a day advanced prenatal pills and folic acid. Ill update in a month

  • I just bought this stuff A week ago I hope and pray it works I been trying to get pregnant and nothing is work hopefully this will works for me

  • I used PreSeed for the first time yesterday as I got my first flashing smiley face.! �� I got another flashing smiley face today as well and was wondering if I should use the PreSeed again today and Baby dance.? Please, please let me know what you think.! ������

  • It’s definitely messy. I used it and waiting patiently. But once I stood up after intercourse, I thought I was peeing down my legs. I panicked a little but just hopped in the shower.

  • I’m ovulating now and used this. Hope and pray this is now the answer to our prayers. Been 5 years ttc. My husband and I are crying. We go to the grotto to pray everyday coz we really want to get pregnant and become a family badly. Please send baby dust to me right now. Amen.

  • Y’all are giving me so much hope we’ve been trying for almost a year now and a friend recommended preseed and I’m praying it works!

  • I used this last month for the very first time and got pregnant! Idk if it works but it was our first month trying for #2 (9 year age gap)

  • okay i haven’t used preseed b4 and 2 weeks ago i recently did it but we used lubicant idk if thats the same thing or not but i wasn’t trying to get pregnant but if i am then that’s life, that was outside of my ovaluved

  • Me and my husband used pre seed about 2 days ago right off my period and baby danced the following 3 days and I will be ovulating next week and plan on using this again wish me baby dust ��

  • I’m prone to yeast infections and use coconut oil daily as a preventative measure which is really useful and haven’t had an infection in 3 months. I’ve found recently it’s a hit and miss if I have ewcm. How would I use coconut oil to replace the ewcm? I guess I’d need an applicator or some sort?

  • Used this for the first time today, then found your video after. It wasn’t any trouble or interruption getting it inserted before intercourse-it recommends doing it before or right before then lying down on your back. I won’t know for sure if this alone works, since tomorrow i I would be getting a trigger shot for ovulation �� but it seems to be a great tool for many, especially high acidic bodies, like mine, and those TTC, like us for two years ��

  • Used pre-seed for the first time Tuesday night. Used about 1 to 2g. No issues but maybe a little too much. No issues Wednesday but today this afternoon I’m having burning pain when I urinate. Anyone experience this after using pre-seed??
