    Default * Saliva & Sperm

    I have heard that saliva kills sperm. I was just wondering if anyone in here has heard of this and knows of anything about it?

    Yup I have heard the same thing. This quote is from a women's health website.

    ...saliva decreases sperm movement and progression.

    that is very weird indeed!!

    I have been reading a lot lately as we have been ttc for a long time.

    all i came across was that we should not use any lubricants and we should use saliva or egg whites as an alternative.

    Same reason Jane. They are not sperm friendly.

    mmmm back to square one.

    You can't seriously tell me that people use actual egg white - that is so gross. But compared to everything else, I suppose not really.

    hehehehehe, Oh you girls are sooooo funny.

    If you can't use Lubricants or Suliva, is there anything else apart from egg white that people can use? Interesting to know.

    People use that pre seed stuff which is apparently expensive. We don't use anything extra

    apparent;y nothing other than saliva and egg whites are safe and sperm friendly.

    some of us are lucky and dont need any extra...

    apparently.....do not quote me on this.....but some women who lack cervical mucous have claimed that egg whites did the same thing and helped carry the sperm through the cervix.

    I have heard that this is not true and its only used for lubricating.

    interesting though

    I also read that saliva is no good for trying to conceive. DH and I avoided oral sex for months while TTC. We got so fed up one month and decided we would just do things how we want and forget all the rules and regulations, and guess what...BFP. So it can't do too much harm.
