Pregnant after a Loss

TTCALer asking a question about preseed

Hi ladies I'm currently in my TWW and not very hopeful for this cycle my body hasn't produced EWCM since Nov at least nothing that hangs around for very long. I do have watery CM and I know it's possible to conceive with just that, I tried EPO this cycle without much improvement. So I've been looking into preseed and wanted to come ask over here for success stories with it and how far along you are with a healthy sticky baby. I'm looking for positive info about it mostly, however if any of you have a strong reason against please share as well. TIA.

Re: TTCALer asking a question about preseed

  • We used it for two cycles, internal application, along with charting and OPKs. We tried for three cycles total, so whether it helped or not, I'm not entirely sure.

    I will forewarn of yeast infections. I happened to get one during my second cycle and found it to be a relatively common side effect.

    Have you tried green tea and making sure you're very well hydrated?

  • DH and I love preseed. I am very dry, and this has made sex much more enjoyable. I wouldn't recommend using the amount they say use, that's way too much n my opinion, we used maybe a quarter of the amount and it was more than enough. I will say we conceived our first pregnancy not using preseed, so is not 100% necessary, but we'll be using it from now on. Btw, I'm 20 weeks if you are on mobile and can't see my siggy.

  • For the 3 cycles we were trying I was barely getting any fertile cm on my own. We tried green tea and preseed for the first two failed cycles. Third cycle we gave up on those and resorted to a lot of foreplay and porn to be blunt lol. That's the cycle that took so who knows ;)

  • We used it once the cycle we got pregnant. It was also our first clomid cycle, so that probably had more to do with it. But it helped. With clomid they told us EOD until I get a +OPK and then every day for 3 days straight. Preeseed was a godsend at that point. We've never exactly been rabbits if you know what I mean. We're both usually fine with once a week.

    So yeah, preeseed helped in that aspect, but I'm not sure if it actually HELPS you get pregnant. But I'm living proof that it doesn't hurt either. Good luck!

  • My two cents: I was going to buy some preseed but then noticed that it was $20/bottle. I said to myself that if regular lube was really that deadly to sperm there would be some sort of warning on the label. I never purchased the stuff and instead I went with the $1.99 bottle of Target brand lube. Good luck to you!

    Yikes! I didn't know it was THAT expensive. I got a free sample with my OPKs. Good thing I got pregnant when I did, I don't think I could stand another cycle of the EOD/ED without it. And I sure as hell wasn't gonna pay $20 for it etither.

  • I LOVED it! I can't say for certain that's how we got pregnant, but when you're BDing so often it's hard to get as worked up as you'd like and I thought that was a fun way to spice things up.

  • I didn't always use it, but pretty sure I used it twice on the cycle I got pregnant this time. We did fertility treatments, so my CM wasn't very predictable even though we knew when I was ovulating.

    Good luck!

  • Lurking from PAL. We used Preseed and have no complaints. We have 3m old twin girls who are happy and healthy. Just the sheer number of times we had to have sex made Preseed a requirement. We didn't use the applicator, just a little on the finger did the trick. And believe me a little goes a LONG way!
  • Thank you so much ladies much appreciated!!

  • We used preseed... I'm not sure if it helped us but it surely didn't hurt, so there you go. I cannot remember if we used it when we conceived though. (There was only one BD in my FW.) I'm 7 months!

    My body never produced EWCM either, even after a few cycles of trying EPO and green tea. I needed something bc we were BDing EOD and I was so dry. I bought Zestcia fertility lube (same as preseed, but I can buy it at Shopper's Drug Mart instead of ordering it online). I got my BFP on my third cycle using Zestica. I'm not sure if it helped, but it didn't hurt and I definately needed the extra lubrication.

    We were not using preseed the first time we conceived, but we were using it when we conceived this time (I'm currently 37.5 weeks).  The cycle in which we conceived was a little wonky without any obvious EWCM, so I was actually surprised to find out that I was pregnant (it was our 5th cycle TTC).  Maybe the preseed played a role... who knows.  I had been using the applicator to apply it internally, but used less than the recommended amount. Good luck!
