Pre~seed review/giveaway


Seriously fun baby-making!

My husband and I started Trying to Conceive (TTC) back in October 2007. I figured we're young, we were 19 & 22 at the time (it was a military wedding!) and healthy so it shouldn't take long. All my friends got pregnant so easily, all they needed to do was look at their partner and voila! I never thought I was going to end up temping,charting and checking things like the position and consistency of my cervical mucous, but I was. I stalked my chart on fertility friend and looked for every possible sign that I might be pregnant. 4 months passed of actively trying to get pregnant and in March 2008 I got my + hpt! I called the Dr. and had blood tests right away! I was in fact pregnant but only a few days later, I miscarried. We waited one cycle and got a second +test in May 2008! Again, just a week later another miscarriage. We continued to try for 7 more months.. Chris, (my husband) was honorably discharged from the NAVY and we moved back home in December 2009. In January, I finally became pregnant again! Sadly enough, on January 24th, my 21st birthday.. I miscarried again! 

Enough was enough!! 
After months of not conceiving a sticky baby I  purchased a book by Toni Weschler, Taking Charge of your Fertility “The bad news is that virtually all lubricants...can kill sperm. Until recently, there really wasn’t a viable option...Luckily, though, a revolutionary new vaginal moisturizer has been developed... It is called Pre~Seed ...”  I had heard amazing stories of Pre~seed on all of the TTC forums and especially on the TTC after miscarriage pages! went ahead and ordered a package and even had it rushed! :) I only wish I had done this sooner!   

WARNING: Details below! If you're squeamish or don't want to hear any explanation of how to use pre~seed then skip this part!



At the first signs of ovulation I couldn't wait to whip out my  Pre~seed and try to make a baby! The instructions say (for TTC purposes)  :
Pre~Seed can be inserted 15 minutes prior to intercourse. Applying it before sex allows it to disperse throughout the vagina and allows for more spontaneity as a couple! 
Note: I applied pre~seed with the applicator tube while getting myself ready before my husband came into the room! He appreciated it much more than sticking around for the show! ;) 

Using Pre~seed lubricant was so wonderful! Really! If you're a seasoned TTCer then you know just how much of a chore and how uncomfortable it can be sometimes when you need to plan out your baby making sessions! When you've got one thing on your mind, and it's not trying to have a good time with your partner..things can be less than slippery! Pre~seed has a super light consistency! It's actually pretty darn identical to Egg white cervical mucous, or fertile quality mucous if your just a ttc beginner ;) It has NO taste and absolutely ZERO smell! It doesn't leave any residue if you let it dry on your skin! It's just a PERFECT lube whether your TTC or not! I'll never use anything else!  

A little info!
"Other lubricants can create a barrier that interferes with sperm swimming out of the semen."

Whereas the live swimming sperm are able to move freely from the semen into Pre~Seed.
* Pictures taken in laboratory at 200X magnification after 10 minutes of
contact between semen and products. Dead sperm remain behind in semen.

We continued to use pre~seed the next two following nights & then we waited! 
My period was due two weeks later  and I had one leftover cheapy pregnancy test lying around. I peed on the stick and didn't give it a second, third or fourth thought like I always do!  I washed my face and dried off, leaned over to grab the test and throw it away when I noticed what was TWO LINES! I seriously did a double take! It worked! This time, it just felt different and I knew this baby was gonna stick! 

And she did! 
Layla stuck around for 41 weeks and I give lots of credit to Pre~Seed!  There's no question in my mind that Pre~seed helped us conceive our Daughter and helped her to move along to where she needed to go in a timely matter so she was able to be a sticky bean!! 
From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Pre~Seed! Layla is an amazing little girl and I truly believe that without your product, she might not be here!

  29. I learned that Pre~Seed is the first ‘fertility-friendly’ Personal Lubricant that mimics natural body secretions to relieve vaginal dryness while providing an optimal sperm environment. I had no idea that other personal lubricants could damage sperm and harm embryos.

  30. Not sure if this one counts since I'm not too sure what the "leave a comment on a NON Giveaway" part means. But I did refer my friend Carla to become a follower.
