8 Sperm-Friendly Lubricants You Should Consider Using While Trying to Conceive

For some couples, trying to conceive is not as easy as it may seem.

There are hormone levels, timing for ovulation andwelldoing the deed. It’s quite an interesting balance of things that have to line up just right in order for conception to occur, and more complicated than it seems.

If conception is taking longer than you had hoped, one area that could be hindering the process is inadequate lubrication. The female body naturally makes lubrication (or cervical mucus) and it changes throughout the month. When you’re in your fertile time, your mucus (or lubrication) will change to the most ‘sperm-friendly’ to allow those guys to do their thing and swim up to your awaiting egg. The right amount, consistency and pH balance has to be achieved in order to help those guys and sometimes a lady doesn’t make enough of her own (thanks, hormones). The lubricant you generally can find at the drug store typically are counter-productive to trying to conceive. They don’t generally have the right pH balance or constancy to help the sperm and usually hinder the process. There are some lubricants (both natural and store bought) that are more sperm-friendly and you may want to consider using these if you’re trying to conceive.

8 sperm-friendly lubricants that may help your chances of conceiving:

The best natural cervical mucus is called “egg white cervical mucus” because of it’s close consistency with well, egg white. Using un-cooked egg whites as lubrication mimics natural lubrication.

What can’t coconut oil do? While you may be worried about infections putting it where you will be putting it, no need to worry. Coconut oil is a natural antifungal and the sperm love to swim in it.

If you can get over the fact that it’s yogurt, plain (NON sugared) yogurt can be a good option for lubrication
