The images above demonstrate the typical barrier created between sperm and regular personal lubricants after 10 minutes, and the complete mixing of Conceive Plus® and sperm following the same exposure time.
Common lubricants often form a barrier to sperm motility, and may pose harm to sperm due to pH levels that are not compatible with the body’s natural fertile fluids or are non-isotonic, which can dehydrate sperm and affect sperm motility.
Conceive Plus® preserves motility by mixing with the sperm within a matter of minutes. The gentle formulation of Conceive Plus® matches fertile cervical liquid and semen to create a conception-friendly environment.
The use of syringes to deposit lubricant carries an increased risk of developing a bacterial infection. This could have a negative impact on your chances of getting pregnant and may, in extreme cases, lead to miscarriage. Both the Conceive Plus® Multi-use Tube and Applicator offer a safe environment for sperm survival and increase the likelihood of getting pregnant naturally.
In a comparative study with its competitors, Conceive Plus® displays improved viability compared with sperm exposed to other lubricants.
