I think it depends on the ph level in the lubricant. I know they sell some special brand that they say won't hurt the sperm. I think it was called pre-seed but I hear it is a bit pricey.

Astroglide
I had read the same thing about lubracant. I read that astroglide was supposed to be ok. Well, I went out and bought it. A few days later I found info on the net that said that astroglide was bad as well. Not sure what to believe now. They also say that saliva is bad as well. Kinda a damned if you do and damned if you don't situation I think. I wish I could find a product that I know is safe. Everywhere you look there is conflicting info.

Most certainly it does!


Most lubricants have high ph levels which can kill off sperm. The only lubricant I know of that does not do that is pre-seed. It was especially created for lubrication while trying to conceive.

Does Lube impede conception?
I found Pre-Seed at CVS, and it was almost $20 for a small bottle. I know the last time i got pregnant we were using Astroglide, but i guess that was a fluke? Saliva??? Really??
