Thread: Lubricants and Sperm

  1. #1

    Default Lubricants and Sperm

    Hi everyone. I have been posting on the Endometriosis forum for a while. My wife has endometriosis and we have been TTC for the last 7 months since we got married in Feb this year.



    She had a laproscopy mid 05 and the endometriosis may be coming back. Long story cut short, not only do we want a baby, it's actually a medical necessity because if she can't get pregnant by early next year, the specialists will conduct ANOTHER laproscopy since not being able to conceive is a sign for them.

    Back to the topic of this discussion, TTC is getting a bit monotonous for us and leads to her not being able to produce natural lubrication. My question is, does lubricant (non spermicide) kill sperm?

    Thanks for your info in advance.

    The only lubricant that I know of that you can use that is sperm friendly is pre-seed. You can buy it online at lullaby conceptions. All other lubricants have spermicide in them. Even saliva isn't very sperm friendly. Hope that helps.

    Pre-seed is the only one ive heard off, if you google pre-seed you will find info about it as well as all the places its available in OZ.

    I have read about using egg white BUT have also heard it can lead to infections

    When my DH had to do a semen analysis and donation for freezing (for IVF), we couldn't use ANY lubricant at all - we had to use a condom and "catch it" as he couldn't do the deed without lube himself. Even the condom was unlubricated and was not latex.

    But, for normal sex, I too understand that pre-seed is the only one touted as being sperm friendly.

    DH and I had the same problem when we were TTC - we did buy one box of pre-seed (3 sachets) but it is hugely expensive, so we only used it when we were sure I was ovulating.
    We thought about using egg whites, but neither DH or I could stand the thought of using something that can out of a chicken

    PS - just moving this thread to General Conception, as you may get more responses there

    If you want to know details of another website to buy Pre-seed from please PM me.

    One way to make it a little more affordable is to only use 1/2 a tube at a time, the manufacturer doesn't recommend it but I know many women who do it anyway. Just give the tube a good wipe with a tissue after use, then store the tube in a resealable plastic bag until ready to use again. I wouldn't leave an opened tube around for too long though.

    Mmm interesting. Quick question, what about water based lubricants - do they still have spermicide in them?
