DH and I stopped TTC back in January, mostly because I was just getting stressed out over it. I got pregnant a year ago, during our first cycle TTC, and soon lost it. We tried for 6-7 cycles after that and failed. Also, I was wanting to wait until I get my carpal tunnel surgery done later this year, as pregnancy may make it worse. But now I’m wanting to try again. I’m only 26, but I’ll be 27 before I know it, and 3 years after that I’ll be in my 30’s. I know that’s not old, but I really want to have my first child while still in my 20’s, and I hate the thought of losing the time.
I ordered a few things from Amazon the other day, they should be here tomorrow. I bought a basal thermometer, cheapie OPKs and HPTs, and some Preseed lubricant. I know Preseed won’t magically get you pregnant, but I was wondering if anyone here has had any luck with it. I’ve never tracked my temp before either, so I’m hoping this new game plan gets us some results.

we use it although so far no pregnancy (well…I’m in the TWW so we’ll see this week!) Whether or not it helps it doesn’t hurt AND it’s just great lube lol. Especially for those “I know I know I’m tired too but I’m ovulating so let’s gooooo” kind of months.

I used it internally this cycle for the first time and got my BFP! Good luck!

We’ve used it for about 3 cycles now. We’ve tried using the applicators and just using it externally. No luck yet, but it is a great lube!

We used it this cycle (first one) and I just got bfp today. Don’t know if it was the lube, the acupuncture or just luck lol. But we both love the lube and will probably continue to use it outside of TTC too. I didn’t use the applicators just used like we would any other lube.

It is good to know a positive feedback about Preseed. I had bought it from Amazon a couple of months back but never used it. Not to scare anybody, but I read very negative reviews about it once I researched thoroughly. People had complained of it causing MCs as they said it helps even the weak sperm to fertilize. Hence, it causes MCs later on, as the featus is not strong enough. I don’t know how true it is, but I got scared and never used it! 🙁

I didn’t like it and it didn’t help me conceive. Unless the reason your not conceiving is due to an issue with your CM (possible but unlikely) then it won’t make a differnce.

DH hated it. He could automatically tell if I had used it even if I put it in when showering and said it was super slippery and overall not a good feeling. On top of that, no, the months that we used it we didn’t get a BFP. I did get one and I’m 33 weeks along now, Preseed just didn’t play a part.
