“ Brand: ING Fertility / Dosage Form: Lubricant / Type: Fertility „
After reading many positive reviews of this sperm friendly lubricant, I thought I would give it a try.
I was originally sceptical about this product as anything that any lubricant that was not 'natural' seemed like it would do more harm than good when trying for a baby, however, I thought I would give it a go, and I am a full convert to this product now! It has worked for me 4 times so far, so those swimmers are obviously happy with moving through it.
I have used both the individual tubes and the 'multi use' tube and both have worked. It can be used either internally or externally although if you feel you don't have as much 'fertile fluid' during your cycle, I would recommend you use it internally.
As a negative, I would say that if you use too much, it can affect sensation for the man, it can however be put in after you have finished if you want to use it that way.
The benefits to using this product is that it does not have to affect love making as you can put it in up to 15 minutes before intercourse.
All in all, I think that it is worth trying if you either want to experiment with a different lubricant or if you are trying for a baby.
Myself and my Husband have been trying to conceive for the past seven years without any success, those of you who read my IVF review dated 03/06/09 will know the full story however I will give those of you who don't know me a little insight into my story.
I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome seven years ago and underwent some drastic weight loss, ovarian drilling operations, Lap and dye tests and took fertility drugs and injections for over a year. After persisting we still had no luck and opted to go down the IVF route.
After thousands of pounds and three failed IVF attempts, we decided that it just was not meant to be and decided to knock it on the head.
This was mainly down to the stress we were both under and the fact that our savings had all ran out, but hey, if life was easy it would not be worth living right.
Anyway after our last attempt we waited six months before contacting my specialist for an appointment, something out of the ordinary was happening I actually started to have monthly's and I started to ovulate with the aid of metformin, clomid and HCG Injections, the specialist was very encouraging and went on to say that we stand a 40% chance on conceiving naturally.
This was something that we thought was never possible, I asked why there was a sudden change in his valuation and he went on to tell me that my body was reacting very well to the drugs, which it never had done before. He then said it happens to many women they go through so much and give up and then your body just kicks in, he said the stress of a the treatment may have resulted in us being unsuccessful.
After the appointment we went home and got to work, my husband has been grinning like a Cheshire cat for the past few months. Although I wasn't the same it felt like a chore having to perform when an ovulation kit told me too.
Doing the deed was so dry, uncomfortable and painful at times that I had to do something, so I went to see the specialist and he suggested we try Preseed.
PRESEED FERTILITY LUBRICANT
Preseed is a PH balanced vaginal lubricant designed to imitate your cervical mucus, allowing the sperms to swim more freely in a hospitable surrounding. I was personally shocked when my specialist recommended this to us as it was always drummed into us never to use a lubricant as they are prone to be hostile and killing off sperm before they even get a head start, however this is designed as a fertility aid and is completely sperm friendly.
Some maybe thinking why use a lubricant, just get on with it and get jiggy. I have to say this is easier said than done, many women experience a vaginal dryness especially when they are having to perform on demand, this can become very uncomfortable and I have to personally say it is a very stressful times and the last thing you want is rumpy pumpy.
After speaking with our specialist regarding the uncomfortable dryness he recommended this preseed lubricant, which I was sceptical about but as he confirmed that it would do no harm and if anything it would help as I would be much more relaxed and therefore be more welcoming to my hubbys little fellas.
PRICE / AVAILABILITY
I bought this Preseed from Amazon www.amazon.co.uk it cost me £18.50 with free delivery.
For the price I got a 40 gram tube of Preseed which indicated I had enough for eight applications, however this seems to have lasted much longer than that.
I did try to find this in the chemist but it was something they didn't stock, so I am confident the only place you can get it is on the internet.
As I said I was very sceptical about this product, not only because I thought it would be hostile towards my hubbys swimmers but I also worried that it was just one of the gimmicks that sucked women in who were desperate for children, by telling them it is was the best product to have to help you conceive.
I am still not decided on the gimmick theory as it has not helped me conceive, however I am confident it is not killing off the little swimmers.
This has certainly done the job for me, doing the deed is no longer dry of painful. This product seems to have put a smile on my face so making the whole experience much more pleasurable.
I feel that it is very expensive and I am not sure I would recommend it, if it was just being used as an extra fertility option that aids the sperms. However if you are trying to conceive and you get sore I strongly recommend it as it is the only sperm friendly lubricant on the market.
