Not many lubricants are fertility-friendly but fortunately, Pre-seed is one of the most fertility-friendly lubricant that there is. Sometimes, the cervical mucus produced during the ovulation period is quite much and too thick for the sperm to go through.
Pre-seed supplements the sperm lubrication and helps it swim through the cervical mucus to the eggs successfully, thereby increasing the possibilities of pregnancy. Pre-seed, when applied to your vagina before sexual intercourse, mimics your vaginal fluid and creates a conducive environment for the sperm to journey through to the eggs.
How Does Preseed Work
Using the pre-seed also prevents vaginal dryness. Compared to most other lubricants the ingredients contained in pre-seed lubricants are clean and safe for you. One of the ingredients used in making pre-seed is distilled water. Pre-seed was developed by medical practitioners and is used in many fertility hospitals.
How To Use Pre-Seed
Pre-seed lubricator usually comes with a tube alongside 9 applicators that have measurements in grams written on them. According to the directions of usage, you are to pull about 3grams of the pre-seed lubricant into the applicator and use.
Contrary to this, However, expert Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh suggests that you use less than the directed 3grams, only during foreplay before sexual intercourse. Apply enough pre-seed lubricant outside the vagina, around the clitoris but only a little amount, about a fingertip of it on the penis, if it is highly necessary.
Pre-seed can either be applied outside the vagina and on the penis during foreplay or inserted into the vagina with the applicator, minutes before sexual intercourse. If you have enough natural vaginal fluid, you might find that the pre-seed lubricant is not necessary after all.
It is important for you to note that it is only a safer lubricant choice, not necessarily a fertility booster.
When To Use Pre-Seed
Experts recommend using pre-seed only when you are approaching fertility period and during the fertility period itself. Although you can use pre-seed all month long, it is not advisable. It is more advisable to use other lubricants, preferably water-based ones, every other time of the month that is not fertility period.
It is also advised that you apply pre-seed lubricant to the vagina, 15minutes before sexual intercourse.
