You can either use it just as an external lubricant at the time of foreplay and intercourse or you can apply it via the vaginal applicators before intercourse, or you can use a combination of both. It really depends on how much natural lubrication there is.
Sperm exposed to Pre-Seed had the best viability (live sperm) counts, with 92% still alive after two hours of exposure. ConceivePlus was second best with just over 70% alive two hours after collection. Both Pre-Seed and Conceive Plus kept more sperm alive after two hours compared to the lab control.
1. Use preseed fertility-friendly lubricant anytime you want to have intercourse. 2. You can use it during your fertile days of the month or throughout the month.
If you can’t live without lube, Masterson says you can use Pre-Seed, a doctor-developed, FDA-approved “fertility-friendly” lube. It’s pH balanced to match both the fertile cervical mucus and the pH of your sperm, so it doesn’t impair your chances of conception.
Squeeze the bottom of the tube to fill the applicator with the amount of lube you want to use. Most women will choose the 2-3g filling line. Holding the applicator upright, unscrew the tube from the tube and put the cap back on. Do not leave the tube unsealed between uses.
While it’s not a fertility supplement, Eyvazzadeh says that pre-seed just doesn’t kill sperm as much and it doesn’t necessarily make them swim faster, better, or straighter. “If you take a semen sample and, say, put KY on the sample, the semen dies off within minutes.
Currently there is no scientific evidence that Pre-Seed will help you conceive twins. It can help sperm find their way to your egg, increasing the chances of pregnancy. But that’s all as far as pre-seed goes, it can’t help the body conceive.
Once the sperm has entered the reproductive system, it can take about 30-45 minutes to reach the egg. For this, it is important to have a healthy sperm that has the right kind of motility to reach the egg and fertilize it. Once in a woman’s body, a healthy sperm can survive for 2-5 days.
“In general, every other night around the time of ovulation helps increase your chances of conceiving,” says Goldfarb. Sperm can survive in your body for up to 5 days. The best suggestion is to have sex regularly – during ovulation and when not.
A study titled “In Vitro Effects of Coital Lubricants and Synthetic and Natural Oils on Sperm Motility Fertility and Sterility” finds that Pre-Seed is not only safe for conception, but that sperm actually are a perform significantly better on key fertility measures than a number of other lubricants.
