Say No to Normal Lubricants & Check your Cervical Mucus!

In trying-to-conceive homes across the land, couples are charting their sexual activity with army-like precision, tracking their fertility windows and ovulation cycles as intercourse ‘on demand’ begins to take its toll. Unfortunately the stress of sex on demand can increase anxiety levels and result in vaginal dryness, discomfort and even pain, with many couples turning to well known regular sexual lubricants – not knowing that most lubricants and even saliva can damage sperm and dramatically reduce your odds of conceiving.

 

Many leading sexual lubricants have been clinically proven to exert a detrimental effect on sperm motility (ability to swim) and sperm viability (ability to survive), however, there is one lubricant designed specifically for trying-to-conceive couples with amazing results – Pre-Seed Sperm Friendly Lubricant. Formulated to mimic the body’s natural secretions, Pre-Seed supports and protects the sperm and ensures they are not impeded in any way on their most urgent of journeys, providing the optimal sperm environment. Pre-Seed also relieves vaginal dryness, delivering moisture at the same pH, osmolality and viscosity as fertile cervical fluids. Pre-Seed does not harm sperm and is less irritating to women – and can be used as a sexual lubricant even if you’re not actively trying to conceive! Pre-Seed:

 

  • Pre-Seed Fertility Friendly Lubricant was designed to mimic fertile cervical mucus in its pH, ion concentration and consistency.
  • Pre-Seed is glycerin-free which enables sperm to swim freely and is formulated with antioxidants to support sperm on their journey to fertilise the egg.
  • The National Institute of Health funded research to design Pre-Seed’s patented sperm safe lubricant formula.
  • Clinical studies show that Pre-Seed is ideal for use by TTC couples.
  • Pre-Seed is the first lubricant that can say it’s fertility-friendly following FDA review of Pre-Seed clinical studies.

 

If you are on the journey to conception you may well be aware that cervical mucus also plays a vital role in the conception process. Healthy cervical fluids help to:

 

  • Offer protection and nutritional support for sperm.
  • Neutralise acidity in the vagina during a woman’s fertility window.
  • Promote a safe passage of sperm through the vagina, cervix and uterus to the fallopian tube.
  • Facilitate sperm motility so conception can take place.
  • Promote a healthy environment within the vagina preventing infection.

 

Cervical mucus can also be an indicator of ovulation! The cervical mucus undergoes some characteristic changes throughout the menstrual cycle, nature’s own way of facilitating pregnancy. As ovulation approaches, your cervical mucus may demonstrate a series of fertile qualities such as its consistency becomes stretchable, transparent, slippery even with a feel and texture similar to a raw white egg. ‘Infertile cervical mucus’ on the other hand is characterised by a tacky like texture, is usually opaque and well, there's not really too much of it. If you feel your cervical mucus resembles the infertile type we would recommend that you consider the following actions:

 

  • Increase your water intake. Hydration is always vital to your well-being and in support of your ovulation cycle, water is a key ingredient in the creation of fertile quality mucus.
  • Invest your time in looking at a nutritional supplement designed to increase your production of ‘fertile-quality’ cervical mucus. We recommend the Pre Conceive Fertility Nutritional Supplement, designed for both men and women, however, in women it works to balance hormone production and helps to create the optimal reproductive environment to facilitate ovulation and conception.
