Let's talk about Preseed...

edited May 2016 in TTC After a Loss
Has anyone used this? I should start by saying I know it will not help me conceive faster. What I'm really interested in is a fertility-friendly product to help with the inevitable, shall I say chafing, that occurs with an ambitious BD schedule. I don't really have a problem with adequate CM, but just need a little boost now and then to keep things comfy. Will this provide what I need, or is there another product that would work better? I've seen mixed reviews on Amazon about the consistency, plus I trust you ladies way more than Amazon reviewers. 

Edit: Saw a misspelling and it made me feel embarrassed. 

Re: Let's talk about Preseed...

  • I have used it. I do like it. I think the full applicator is a bit much, makes me feel like a leaky faucet but I think it definitely helps during that increased frequency week. Especially if you skip the longer "build up" and just get straight to it. It seems a little more watery than traditions lubes but I plan on using it this week as well

  • I used preseed and plan on using it again until I get pregnant. I agree, the recommended amount is way too much. 
  • Loading the player...
  • Thanks so much. Pretty much everything I've read also conveys that the standard amount is too much. I would only use a small dab to "get things going" anyway. If I order it now, it will be on my doorstep before FW for sure. Gotta love Prime!

  • I have only used the applicator thing a few times, usually it's just a small dab.  We use it when we need something more...it's actually pretty good as well, IMO (not sticky, etc.).  And yes to Prime shipping for sure!

    I use it because I need lubricant anyways and it's sperm friendly and also i don't really have egg white cm. The cycle I got pregnant I started using the applicator...have no idea of having it inside had anything to do with getting KU or not. I only use about 2 grams. (the second line on the applicator)

    I like it well enough. I'm really not into baby-making sex and I don't have EWCM, so it's a lifesaver. I do use the applicators, but 2 grams like @Spartanrd4 otherwise it's a fricking slip n slide

    We always use lube. I bought just the lube version of preseed and became pregnant after 9 months of trying the first time we used it. Got pregnant again the first time after using it after my 1st MC. We ran out and several months later, I am still not pregnant. Hmm, might be time to order more! The brand I bought was Conceive Plus. Good luck!
  • I have used pre-seed. Actually the first month we used it ttc#1 we got pregnant (month 13 of active ttc). I've only been using externally for a little extra somethin-somethin as I cannot find the applicators, but this month I ordered a new batch specifically so I could start using it internally again. It actually makes sense that it worked for us in the past because we have some motility issues that we didn't know about until recently. Hence why I put my order in. 

    And who doesn't love Amazon Prime? The magic of things showing up at my doorstep is amazing and extra amazing when it's something I wouldn't want to stand in line at CVS with.

    We have used both Preseed and Astroglide TTC, and actually prefer the latter. Astroglide is thinner and feels closer to the natural thing, Preseed was more slippery. They should be equally effective as TTC lubricants, so it's just a matter of personal choice.

  • @BornReady Your response made me laugh because I envisioned myself holding my box of Preseed set to check out at CVS, and at that moment running into someone I know. "Oh hiiiii, don't mind me and my tube of fertility lube....how are you?!" Plus, I hate CVS's prices. It's cheaper by a few bucks on Amazon. 

    Thanks everyone for the replies! This was very helpful. 
  • Haha @Wishilivedinflorida ;one day I went to Target and bought preseed, opks, pregnancy tests and tampons and of course the check out person was like a 22 year old guy. Definitely got a look on that one lol.

  • I used it when we conceived all our babies.  I like it, way more then adtroglide.  We are trying coconut oil as our lube now.

  • I have never heard of this!!!! I usually get EWCM but not every day of my FW so this sounds helpful.

    wondering if I can get it down here though....

    about embarassing shopping... Now I have done this twice: go to checkout with pregnancy tests and tampons. The cashiers look at me like "WTF lady" and I look back like "it's one or the other".

  • As far as embarrassing shopping, how about five dollar store pregnancy tests at a time and then another fav of mine is because of my GI issues I have to buy around 4 bottles of magnesium citrate at a time and I'm sure everyone thinks I have an eating disorder lol

  • Once I was buying a bunch of pregnancy tests from Target that had coupons attached to the boxes, so I was very clear with the cashier that I wanted to use all the coupons I could.  Her reaction?  "What a great deal!"

  • We totally use preseed. We used it for 2 cycles before we got KU and have been using it since my mmc. My DH doesn't really like it but knows it's better than traditional lives so he goes with it. I used the applicator once and it was way too much (as others have said) it was like dripping out everywhere. Gross! I would not use near as much as they recommend if you apply it internally. Lol

  • Does anyone notice that you're more sensitive with preseed? Like, it's almost too much for me. And I'm only using about 1.5g with an applicator.

  • No doubt, with these endorsements I picked some up today lmao Mostly because DH had a complaint about coconut oil and I know we won't go through a whole bottle of some random lube by September lol I doubt I'll "squirt gun it up" until TTC but hope it's a decent lube in the meantime, as needed :)




  • Highly recommend no more than 2g. Seems to be a much better amount so thanks for that tip ladies. 4g was obscene

    I used preseed frequently before my MMC. A little goes a long way. I am not really sure if it helped me get pregnant, but it didn't prevent pregnancy.
