When you and your partner are ready for a baby, you take steps to prepare such as eating healthy, taking pre-natal vitamins, and visiting your doctor. Using Pre-Seed™ Fertility Lubricant when you’re trying to get pregnant is also a great choice to help in your journey. Here’s why.
Why Your Lube Matters When You're Trying to Get Pregnant
If you use a lubricant for comfort or enhanced pleasure during sex, you might be surprised to learn that many lubes are harmful to sperm. If you don’t want to get pregnant, this may be welcomed, but when you’re trying to conceive you don’t want to do anything that hurts your chances.
Numerous studies have shown that everyday lubricants, whether water- or silicone-based, and natural oils or other homemade lubes can be harmful to sperm. How can these lubes or oils harm sperm? They affect how well sperm can swim through them and can be toxic to sperm by being too salty or acidic, for example.
In order for you to get pregnant, sperm must be able to move easily along the vaginal canal, through the cervix, and into the uterus or fallopian tubes (motility). The sperm also need to be able to survive the journey (vitality).
Traditional lubricants can harm both vitality and motility of sperm, according to several scientific studies. That means typical lubes can make it harder for sperm to swim, slowing them down. Many sperm never even make it to the cervix and those that do are often weakened by the environment the lube can create.
Although not all sperm will die with everyday lubricants, losing just one can make it feel like you are hurting your chances of conception. Studies show that some lubricants reduce the number of sperm that make it through by half. When you’re trying to conceive, you want to up your chances, not lower them.
How Does Pre-Seed Fertility Lubricant Work?
When you’re trying to get pregnant, you want all the help you can get. Pre-Seed™ Fertility is not harmful to sperm like other lubes can be. Unlike non-fertility lubricants, Pre-Seed™ is designed to be isotonic and pH balanced similar to the vaginal environment where sperm can swim more freely and comfortably.
Helping Overcome Vaginal Dryness When Trying to Get Pregnant
If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, sex can be uncomfortable, and a lack of vaginal fluids makes it harder for sperm to swim up the canal toward an awaiting egg. Adequate lubrication of the right kind can help – not hinder – sperm along their journey.
Clinical studies show that non-sperm friendly lubricants may limit sperm motility while Pre-Seed™ Fertility Lubricant does not interfere with sperm function. When you use Pre-Seed,™ you get the enhanced slipperiness and comfort that lubes provide with the added boost of a pH balanced formula that is desiged to be isotonic and pH balanced similar to that of the vaginal environment to aid in supporting sperm survival.
How to Use Pre-Seed™ Fertility Lubricant When Trying to Conceive
Pre-Seed™ comes in a tube with nine easy-to-use applicators. Squeeze from the bottom of the tube to fill the applicator with the amount of lubricant you'd like to use. Most women select the 2-3g fill line, but your mileage may vary depending on your preferences and the amount of your own fluids. Insert the filled applicator into the vagina about 15 minutes prior to sex and dispose of the applicator after use. Refer to the package insert for complete Directions for use.
To maximize your chances of getting pregnant, be sure to track your cycle using an ovulation calendar. You can also take an ovulation test to know if you are about to release an egg.
