Preseed confusion!

I was just about to order some preseed as a lot of people have been raving about it but not sure what the difference is between the two on the page below-do you use then both in the same way?

Which one?

Also just read somewhere that some women have had trouble with (sorry tmi) 'everything coming out very soon after bd' which they say doesn't happen when they donn't use it. Has anyone had any experience of this? They did say they only used half a tube and someone siad that this may be the problem??

Any advise would be greatly appreciated grin Thank you!

Hi sammysam

I've been using preseed but don't know whether it's been a success yet or not. Haven't heard of the second lubricant on your list, could be a different make? On the preseed website (google it - something like there are 2 different versions, the single tube featured on your link, and a pack of six single-application phials. The latter contain lower levels of preservatives and may be less irritating to sensitive souls, whereas the former is probably more economical.

I've not had the experience of "everything coming out very soon after bding" with preseed. I think the sperm itself swims up to your cervix pretty quickly anyway, and what leaks out is the seminal fluid rather than the sperm. The preseed kind of provides a medium for the sperm to swim through to get to the cervix, so it shouldn't matter if all the gloop leaks out. But I try to stay lying down for a little while after BDing, just in case!

Hope that helps.

Thanks existential-that has helped! I've just realised that the one at the bottom isn't even preseed blush I was getting confused as I thought they both were and didn't know how they were different [stupid me!]
So now i've realised my stupidity and i'll order the real preseed! Fingers crossed it works for us-and for you! Good luck!

Just to add I used the single phials this month with no problems - in fact I got a BFP! I made sure I didn't jump up straight away, and while there was loads of preseed/goodness knows what else oozing out blush I guess it had to go somewhere! As EXISTENTIALISTCAT says, the sperm travel up pretty quickly anyway. Good luck to you both! smile

Congratulations! I've just ordered some.....please let it work for us-I can't take this TTC lark any more sad

It worked for me first-time SAMMYSAM, as I wasn't get much (if any) EWM. I've heard others say the same, so everything crossed for you. Let us know what happens!

Ditto for me what Diege said.

Just wanted to say, I love Preseed - I got a BFP on the third month of using it, after trying for over a year since my miscarriage. I've read lots of positive things on here about it too.

Good luck!
