Did you know that something as simple as using the wrong lubrication when you have intercourse can spoil your chances of getting pregnant?
I had no idea! In fact, I thought a little lubrication would actually help–were you thinking the same thing too?
Well, it turns out, most store-bought lubricants will damage the sperm and so they are strictly forbidden! The same goes for vaseline or KY jelly. If you are using this type of lubrication, you could be reducing your chances of conceiving by half!!!
Luckily, there are a couple of things you can use as a substitute. One is eggwhites. Yup, as in real eggs! You just leave one out for a while (they’re much too cold, straight from the fridge), and then you crack it open and use the eggwhite (not the yolk) in place of lubrication.
Believe it or not, eggwhites are extremely sperm friendly!
Another option is a fantastic product called Pre-Seed, which is specifically designed not to be harmful to sperm.
Lastly, one of the best ways to improve your chance of getting pregnant is to increase your natural lubrication. This can be achieved by introducing more foreplay into your “baby-making activities” which will increase your arousal and therefore you will have more natural lubrication to help the sperm to stay alive. Also, if a man is more aroused, he will have a better ejaculation which results in more sperm, which is a good thing!
