Which lubricant is safe when trying to conceive?

There are lots of sperm-friendly natural lubricants that can make all the difference when it comes to conceiving successfully and many are available to purchase online.

Why use lubrication when trying to conceive?

If you’re actively trying to conceive, you’re probably having sex frequently and to a stricter timetable than usual. This can not only take a lot of the fun out of the experience, but it can also result in one or both partners being less aroused than they would be usually. This can also result in vaginal dryness and discomfort.

 Lube can help remedy that, making sex more comfortable and enjoyable. This can be particularly important for couples undergoing fertility treatment, which can also increase the risk of vaginal dryness [1]

Which lubricant is best for trying to conceive?

Although the majority of lubricants are free from spermicide, many contain ingredients such as petroleum, glycerin, parabens, and silicone, which can impact sperm mobility [2]. This decreases the chances of the sperm making it through to the cervix and can also impact the viability of the sperm.

So, if you’re trying to get pregnant, it’s important to choose a lubricant that won’t reduce your chances of conception.

Look out for ones that are free from chemical ingredients such as silicone or parabens. Typically when choosing a lubricant, you want to ensure that you choose one that is match to the pH of the vagina, usually pH 3.8 – pH 4.5.
