    normal lube ie durex range or ky are not sperm friendly. the sperm firndly ones i have heard off are Pre-seed and Concieve Plus. Concieve Plus can be bought in Boots for around £15, not sure about any others.

    I'm curious about lubricant too - are the baby friendly ones a good substitute for ewcm as I'm not sure I produce enough (sorry tmi!).... Thanks x

    It usually is, but I've been checking for mine and haven't really found any, so I'm worried it will get in the way of ttc (I know i'm ovulating as just had a blood test to confirm :) ) xx

    Oh right!!

    I am still not au fait with all this TTC jargon...

    I didn't think ewcm served any purpose other than to let you know you should bd? (of course it acts as lube too - silly me! doh !!)

    It's not just a lube Carnat22 - it's helps the sperm swim up to your egg, so is really important... Don't worry, I'm learning new stuff from this forum all the time! :)

    shorty88 I'm thinking of trying yesbaby lube as it's sperm friendly and all natural too - just a bit confused about whether it's a good alternative to ewcm?? Might pose this as a separate question on the forum actually as need to buy some soon... xx

    I know - this babymaking business is pretty costly! I suppose it's nothing in comparison to the cost of a baby, so we better get used to it! lol :D xx

    LOL! wow i felt silly posting this question! great that im not the only one! i sometimes need a bit of help in that department and was just thinking we bd the other night (in prep for ov) and we used lube.... turns out the one we used kills sperm :( so def going to invest in some Pre-seed or Concieve Plus.... good point the EWCM Ceebee....
    I didnt know that either (it helps the sperm swim up to your egg, so is really important)..... learn something new every day!!
    Im really interested to hear if it does help... as a good alternative to ewcm too now!

    xx

    I used Preseed the month I got my BFP. I got the one with the applicators which you use to squirt it up inside and coat your cervix before you BD. My only tip is use less that the instructions say. It's really gloopy stuff, if you are not careful you end up swimming in the stuff.

    I used Sasmar Conceive Plus and got my BFP the first month of using it, don't know if this is coincidence or not but it must have helped as I have never had much CM and never seen any EWCM. x

    Hey, I'm old so I basically threw everything at it. Dunno if it helped but I deffo used it the two months leading up to BFP. Had to be worth a try. GL all :dust:

    I've got bfps using both preseed and conceive plus. They both have pros and cons:

    Preseed is more expensive but managed to make it last longer (as someone suggested, using less than the recommended amount)
    Conceive plus is cheaper and handier to get (Boots)
    Preseed is only available online but usually get freebies like opks and hpts with them on amazon or ebay.
    Conceive Plus is available in little one-use pods which is handy when you're in a frenzy ;) xx
