Lube while trying to conceive?

Hi ladies, super personal question, sorry for TMI...

Since having my son, I have had to use a lube when having intercourse with my hubby, since I stopped producing my own (no matter how turned on I get, it just isn't enough).

So now that we are trying again, I am trying to use very little or just around the lips and not inside.  And we don't use the kind with spermacides (duh!).

Could this be hurting our chances of conceiving?  Its been a few months and we are still getting BFN.  I know thats not a long time, but just wondering if anyone knows of a good conceving friendly lube?  Or should I try saliva (uhhhh) instead?

It could be hurting your efforts.  Saliva is bad for sperm, so I don't recommend it.  There are a few ttc friendly lubricants out there, one is pre-seed.  Thats the one I know, I used it to get pg with my second, but I've heard some say they don't like the feel of it (it's too watery).  There are a few others out there, but I don't know their brand names.  Good luck!

You are not suppose to use regular lube as it is not condusive to the sperm - but you can use PreSeed. I had the same problem before I got pregnant the first time (now I am like a faucet lol). I used preseed and it worked just like lube but it helps the sperm instead of hurting it!

 PreSeed...I hear it works...

Its also the best for spermies and concieving. I just picked some up. You can get it at Walgreens. Its not cheap, but worth having.
