A while back someone posted about how KY Jelly can kill sperm off, and after doing some research online I read that most lubricants do either kill of the sperm or make it much harder for it to get through. So I bought some Pre-Seed as a few people recommended it here, and it's great.

But I just wondered, has anyone got pregnant here who has used traditional lubricants? And do most people not need to use anything? I just find sometimes it can be a bit uncomfortable - especially when your sole purpose is to try to create a baby and you feel pressured etc.

The reason I'm asking is I don't know whether my failure so far to get pregnant again (had a miscarriage last year) is because we were using a lubricant, so I wondered if it was possible to get pregnant whilst using these. I'm just not sure if I'm as fertile anymore as I was last year - I'm 35.

Can i be a bit gross and suggest you get your dh to use his, erm, spit, and sort of... well, 'apply' it in your lady area? In a romantic fashion? blush

Have heard though that spit can also kill off sperm. Haven't done my own researchblush. But remember from that mke mea baby program last year on BBC3, they said that even small amounts of saliva can kill sperm.

Sure there is someone on here that did get pg with preseed.

More foreplay perhaps. HTH

Cheers. I read that saliva can kill it off, too! I suppose I'm just worried cos I'm not pregnant, and wondered if that was partly why or if there is a problem. Anyway, doctor said we can have tests done in a few months if still not pregnant. I can't understand how I got pregnant easily before (second month trying) but since I miscarried, it's just not happened. It's over a year ago!

Im on first month of trying pre-seed. read quite a lot on internet about other lubes so figure hey may aswell give it ago.
wish i could say dont used anything but even after an hour (prob due to pressure of ttc) i still dont feel wet blush
