I have been using Preseed for a while and would like to try a different one. I have heard of Zestica but cant find it available online. I bought Conceive plus but havent used it as it doesnt have applicators, just a tube of the gel. Can I use Preseed applicators to apply it internally?
read a lot of literature on fertility lubes while we were trying to conceive. I'm a medical researcher by trade so have access to the actual papers (most of which are conveniently sponsored by the manufacturers, but there are some which are not). Basically Preseed (despite its claims) will not facilitate the motility of the sperm. But it was the best for ensuring the longest life for the little swimmers and slowing them down the least. Conceive plus was a close second.
Don't worry about applying internally - it won't make any difference, just use them to ensure that sex is comfortable and pleasurable for the both of you and feel reassured that unlike most lubes they are not harming your chances. They are basically only as good as not using lube and relying on your bodies' own lubricant.
Personally I used conceive plus when I got up the duff. It was cheaper than preseed. I do use lube normally during sex so needed to choose one that was going to be compatible with reproduction! ;-)
Agree with the above poster - those lubes don't necessarily increase your chances of conceiving, but are designed not to negatively affect sperm like some other lubricant. We were using Conceive Plus when I got pregnant.
We tried conceive plus and preseed when trying for dc1 and it took 18 months to conceive and the cycle we finally did we were away for a week and I forgot to take it with us. Personally I think it happens when it happens.
