  • i dont think saliva is going to hurt. be patient it will happen when its suppose to you may be stressing out to much and thats why your not pregnant yet.

  • Yes! Saliva is very acidic and can harm sperm.

  • I'v used it for lubricant before, and I had a baby. But it is acidic. So becarful. It could be harmful to the baby.

  • I've never heard that... WOW learn something new everyday. But I do know... It DID NOT work for us. LOL But if your worried about that... just don't use saliva anymore, get a lubricant

  • If you really need lubricant and you are trying to get pregnant, try Pre-Seed. It is really the only sperm friendly lube that I know of. All of the others like KY, can interfere with the sperm swimming and getting where they need to go.

  • I purchased preseed last month. I am in the 2ww to see if it worked for me. Look on ebay its a lot cheaper then buying on the website.
