Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Is pre-seed lubricant safe to conceive? Is naturally not lubricating a cause of concern? TTC two months: How many months will it take to conceive naturally? TSH 5.2. Is it normal to conceive?

Answered by Dr. Sameer Kumar


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Pre-Seed (Vitamin E, Chloride salts, etc.) lubricant that mimics fertile cervical fluids to support sperm on their journey. Unlike most other lubricants, Pre-Seed fertility-friendly lubricant is pH-balanced and isotonic, so sperm can swim freely. So it can be used. As you have been trying only since last two months, so I would like to comment that the chances of even natural conception with each cycle across the world are 30 to 35 %, so you need to be patient. Thirdly, the TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) levels of 5.2 are high and make you a hypothyroid which easily affects fertility (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
