@missstarling:  We used Preseed when TTC…. I hear that is the only “sperm safe” one.

@missstarling:   Did you use sperm safe lube?  If not, then that would have most likely hurt your chances.

We always use water based lube – didn’t know it was bad for TTC! We did it once during my best guess at a fertile window and I got pregnant.

Pre-seed is the only conception friendly lube I believe.  We used it and got pregnant.

We generally use some type of (normal) lube.  We weren’t exactly TTC yet and I got pregnant so it seemed it didn’t prevent pregnancy for us!

Pre-seed. Used it and it worked.

We used pre-seed, but we used it as a regular lube (as opposed to inserting the lube beforehand). I wouldn’t worry too much about it, though. Good luck!

@missstarling:  Well, it might have hurt your chances a little bit would I certainly wouldn’t think you “wasted” this month! I kinda felt the same way, like when I took anti-histamine every night and then was like, oh shit, will this mean I couldn’t have gotten pregnant this month??? Then I reminded myself, ok, if anti-histamine actually kept you from getting pregnant, then everyone would use it instead of birth-control pills. Lube will not prevent you from getting pregnant. If you really want to maximize your chances, use a sperm-friendly lube,  but I think you still have a…what is it, 15-20% with perfect timing for a healthy couple? chance of ending up pregnant!

Can you picture a teenage boy trying to pressure his girlfriend into having sex and saying “it’s okay, baby, I’ll use lube so you won’t get pregnant.” Hahaha

A few times during my FW we used water-based lube, and a few times good ol’ spit, haha.  Either way it worked our first try, I hadn’t even heard of lube being an issue with sperm, oops! 😛

I got pregnant with regular lube. I think it only causes reall issues if your husband has low sperm count or other issues like that. Im sure it didn’t hurt your chances. Many many children have been conceived using good ol’ KY

I did, and i think we only had sex that one time that cycle (DH was away the entirr month but got back very briefly) with no charting etc

I really dont think its an issue unless there are other problems at play. Try not to get into the mindset of wasted months though, or it can become really clinical

I’m a firm believer of if it’s meant to be it’ll be! That being said, if you aren’t KU this cycle definitely try Preseed next cycle! We used it and got our BFP and I actually really liked it vs other lubes! Good luck!
