Would you use expired preseed?

I wanted to use preseed when we BD'd today but it expired Mar 2013 so I didn't.  I've since done some googling & get two different answers - one being ladies who think its fine (just may not be as effective) and the company saying DON'T USE EXPIRED PRESEED! (all in caps!)  I sent them an email asking why, out of curiousity.  They obviously won't admit that its just to sell more (lol), but if they have a good reason, I'll believe it.

What do you think?

I tend to be of the mindset that it just won't be harmful... it just won't be as effective. I'm like that with anything like that, though. I still have my muscle relaxers from my knee injury five years ago. LOL

I wouldn't risk it, but that's just me. I don't know if it would actually hurt or not.

I would see what it looked like.

I used to think once meds expired you had to toss them because they flat out didn't work or would hurt you.  I was at the doctor with my DH once & he mentioned using old meds & she said it was ok, they just aren't as effective.  So I've been coming over to your mindset, but its a process! lol

That is what I should probably do.

If I know an item's expiration date, I will not use it past that date.  Because I'm a crazy worry-wart.  It could be that they don't want you to use it because they don't want you to sue stating that their product didn't work as it was supposed to work.  If that makes sense?

Very good point.

I'd gotten past worrying about most things, but this is so much more personal, given where its put, and I don't want to mess up our chance to get pregnant.
