Personal lubricants have long been a staple in the sex lives of many couples because they are fertility-friendly and ensure pain-free penetration.
Unfortunately, the sorts of lube used to enhance a coupleâ€™s sex life are not conducive to conception. Some store bought lubricants often contain a pH balance and consistency that does not support conception.
They can prevent sperm from effectively swimming through the cervix towards the womanâ€™s egg. Some of these lubes even contain hormones or anesthetics, which are not particularly good for a womanâ€™s vagina in general.
To be on a safer side, try making your lubricant and have a pain-free penetration and conceive right away.
