Lubricants and Trying To Get Pregnant

What lubricants are good for TTC?

Up to 50% of couples report problems with proper lubrication. When you are trying to get pregnant, every single sperm counts and you don't want to do anything that impairs the sperm count and/or function.

Saliva is not a sperm-friendly medium, nor is water. Anything petroleum-based, such as Vaseline, should be avoided, except for FDA-cleared, sperm-friendly lubricants such as Pre-Seed or BabyDance. All other, artificial lubricants (such as KY Jelly, Astroglide, Femglide) have been found in several studies to have a negative effect on spermatozoa.

Here are some suggestions if you don't have an artificial lubricant:

  • Allow sufficient time for foreplay
  • Have a romantic evening
  • Massage each other
  • Talk sweetly to each other

If all of this doesn't work, then you may want to try BabyDance fertility lubricant, the only sperm-friendly intimate moisturizer made without parabens.
