Do you have vaginal dryness while Trying to Conceive?
Seventy-five percent of TTC couples have increased incidence of dryness due to stress and fertility medications. Unfortunately, over 10 published studies from University Medical clinics have found that ALL leading brands of lubricants harm sperm, with ZERO motile sperm after an hour of contact. Finally, Pre~Seed the "sperm-friendly" Intimate Moisturizer that replenishes your moisture while providing an optimal sperm environment. Pre~Seed is pH balanced to semen and contains a bioactive plant sugar to provide antioxidant support, while delivering intimate moisture to enhance your TTC journey.
How Do Other Products Damage Sperm?
The reason for sperm damage from most products can be seen when data on product pH and osmolarity are compared as in the following table. The optimum pH value for sperm migration and survival in the cervical mucus is between 7.0 and 8.5 (according to the World Health Organization manual for examination of human semen and sperm-cervical mucus interaction 4th edition 2000). Sperm are very sensitive to low (acidic) pH and, to a lesser extent, elevated (alkaline) pH. Below pH levels of 6.9, sperm die at a rate that increases with lowering pH.
Sperm are also sensitive to both high and low osmolarities (ion concentration in solution) because these can cause them to either shrink or swell beyond their "critical volume limits". A physiologic osmolarity around 360 mOsm/kg (that of semen) is best for sperm function. Osmolarity has to do with concentrations of ions (salts) in a solution.

Trying to conceive (TTC) is a big issue. At least 90 million couples worldwide, 11 million in the US alone, are trying to become pregnant. With only a 20 percent average chance of becoming pregnant each cycle, it is no surprise that couples can become stressed.
Intercourse on demand around ovulation can lead to anxiety and increased vaginal dryness. In fact, 75 percent of TTC couples report an increased frequency of vaginal dryness. In relieving vaginal dryness, couples do not want to create another problem. However, most personal lubricants and even saliva can harm sperm. Research conducted on personal lubricants over the past three decades has clearly demonstrated their detrimental effects on sperm. The reasons for this are shown in the Comparison Table.
THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR VAGINAL DRYNESS WHILE TRYING TO CONCIEVE
PreSeed, the first "sperm friendly" intimate moisturizer that mimics natural body secretions for an optimal sperm environment. PreSeed also contains a naturally occurring plant sugar that protects cell function and has antioxidant-like activity.
PreSeed is the Right Solution for Vaginal Dryness Even While Trying to Conceive
PreSeed is the first sperm-friendly Intimate Moisture that mimics natural body secretions to relieve vaginal dryness while providing an optimal sperm environment. PreSeed's moisture is delivered in a fluid with the same pH and osmolarity as semen, so as not to harm sperm, and to be mild to a woman's body.
PreSeed contains a naturally occurring bioactive plant sugar (arabinogalactan) which provides antioxidant support to cells. Antioxidant levels can be severely decreased in semen from men with fertility problems. PreSeed comes in convenient single use vaginal applicators to coat the vagina and external cervix to replenish nature's moisture without harming sperm even while trying to conceive - a time of increased vaginal dryness when other personal lubricants should be avoided.
PRE-SEED PRODUCT TESTING
ING Fertility are proud of the testing that goes into ensuring PreSeed offers you gentle, sperm-friendly moisture. PreSeed has been clinically tested for irritation in people and rabbits. These tests showed no evidence of reactivity. Additionally, each lot of PreSeed is carefully screened to assure a sperm-friendly environment before it is released for sale. To their knowledge, they are the only vaginal moisturizer or lubricant manufacturer that performs "Lot Release" testing to ensure that the product will relieve vaginal dryness while providing an optimal environment for sperm.
EACH LOT IS TESTED TO ENSURE:
- pH between 7.2 and 7.6
- Osmolarity between 300 and 380 mOsmo/kg
- No harm to Mouse Embryos: Assures that greater than 85 percent of one cell mouse embryos develop to the blastocyst stage when cultured with Pre~Seed. This analysis is the FDA test for all media solutions used in assisted reproduction such IUI or IVF.
- Sperm-Friendliness: Freshly ejaculated human sperm are cultured with PreSeed in media to ensure that the percentage of swimming sperm, and their swimming speed is not negatively effected by the PreSeed.
- Culture to ensure there is NO pathogen (nasty) bacteria.
