Why a Valentine’s Conception Needs More Than a Card and Roses

NEW YORK, February 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Pressure to make Valentine’s Day all about sex and passion can feel daunting for 1 in 10 women in the US who face difficulty conceiving. Moreover, over the last three decades, women have been waiting longer to start having children. However, when it comes to fertility, age matters; both women and men are at their most fertile in their early twenties.

Over recent years, establishing a career, getting on the housing ladder and ensuring financial stability are up there on the public’s to-do list ahead of starting a family. There are so many fertility myths out there that need to be addressed but what is important for couples to consider is that the chances of becoming pregnant do dwindle with age,” said leading pharmacist Raj Rohilla (Pharmacist at Battersea Pharmacy and owner of a chain of family focused pharmacies).

With a range of societal factors delaying women having children, fertility support is becoming an increasingly important part of conception for all couples trying to get pregnant.

This February 14th, SASMAR – the fertility, family planning and female health specialists – looks to debunk common fertility myths; clarifying the do’s and don’ts when trying to get pregnant.

  • Myth #1: It’s easy for most women to get pregnant

The truth: While many fall pregnant without difficulty, 1 in 10 women in the US may face issues conceiving. Fertility support can be crucial in preparing the body for conception.

  • Myth #2: Vaginal secretions usually indicate an infection

The truth: Vaginal secretions are natural and healthy. What’s known as ‘cervical mucus’ plays a fundamental role in the process of conception by nourishing and protecting sperm as it travels through the female reproductive tract to meet the egg. Around 75% of couples experience vaginal dryness when trying for a baby. Moreover, of the 70%, most do not consider it to be a problem – this despite the body’s conditions not being optimal for conception. For these couples, a scientifically tested fertility lubricant may be worth considering to ease and enhance the comfort of sexual activity, supplement the body’s natural lubrication and help couples on the path to conceiving naturally.

  • Myth #3: Sperm can only live up to three days

The truth: Actually, sperm can survive up to seven days in a woman’s reproductive tract. It is crucial that a couple trying to conceive select a fertility lubricant designed and scientifically proven to be compatible with sperm, eggs, the process of fertilisation and embryo development to help keep sperm viable for the journey.

  • Myth #4: A woman can get pregnant only one day per cycle

The truth: In most women, ovulation usually happens 10-16 days before the start of her next period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after being released. Sperm can survive in a woman’s body for several days after sex. If a woman wants to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there are always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it’s released. A fertility lubricant with calcium and magnesium ions can mimic natural fertile cervical liquid and semen to create a conception-friendly environment.

  • Myth #5: You get pregnant by having intercourse in almost any position

The truth: While there are no scientific studies on the best sexual positions for baby-making, the missionary (man-on-top) position is typically considered optimal for conception. Some suggest that placing a pillow under the hips and keeping legs raised after sex may enhance the sperms’ ability to swim upstream.

For trying-to-conceive couples, a scientifically tested fertility lubricant may be worth considering. It is critical that couples trying to conceive select a personal lubricant scientifically proven for this purpose as clinical studies have found that several popular personal lubricants lower the chances of conception. However, others, such as Conceive Plus® Fertility Lubricant, can help trying-to-conceive couples increase their chances of getting pregnant.

Designed specifically for trying-to-conceive couples, Conceive Plus is the only personal lubricant that contains calcium and magnesium ions, which are naturally present in our bodies and essential for the process of fertilisation. Scientifically proven, the gentle formulation of Conceive Plus mimics natural fertile cervical liquid and semen to create a conception-friendly environment. It does not impair sperm motility or viability, nor does it harm sperm chromatin (DNA) or act as a barrier. The formulation does not harm the fertilisation process and is compatible with embryo development.

75% of couples trying for a baby experience vaginal dryness, something that can be easily overcome with the use of a personal lubricant. It’s important that a chosen personal lubricant is scientifically formulated for sperm, gamete, fertilisation and embryo compatibility. Conceive Plus contains Calcium and Magnesium ions essential for the fertilization process and is cleared by the FDA for this purpose. It can therefore be used by all trying-to-conceive couples, increasing their chances of getting pregnant naturally,” said CEO of SASMAR and creator of Conceive Plus, John-Michael Mancini.

When women are not trying to get pregnant, this product is also compatible with natural rubber latex and polyurethane condoms.

Vaginal Dryness And Your Path To Pregnancy

Intercourse ‘on demand’ around ovulation can take the enjoyment out of love making and can lead to increased vaginal dryness. Nearly three quarters of couples trying-to-conceive reported increased levels of vaginal dryness which was negatively impacting their sex lives.

Researchers have shown that those couples that are able to enjoy making love during ovulation have the best marital satisfaction scores, and possibly quicker times to conception. In contrast, when sex becomes painful because of dryness, or not satisfying due to performance stress, the relationship can really suffer.

It is also important to note that the better intercourse feels for our men, in terms of being stimulating and exciting, the more swimming sperm he can make. Some studies have shown up to 50% more sperm are produced in ejaculations from an enjoyable event versus a ‘have to get it done’ event.

Most lubricants kill or harm Sperm motility

Most commercial lubricants have been shown as harmful to sperm health, so if you are using a lubricant during intercourse because of vaginal dryness, choose a sperm friendly lubricant such as Conceive Plus. To survive and function, human sperm requires an environment that contains certain electrolytes and is within a narrow range of pH, osmolality and tonicity. The World Health Organisation has reported that the optimal condition for sperm survival and migration in the cervical mucus requires a pH in the range of 7.0 to 8.5 and an isotonic solution. Sasmar Conceive Plus is one fertility lubricant that is carefully formulated so that both pH and osmolality are at levels which are safe for sperm. There are other fertility lubricants available which are also specifically formulated to be safe for sperm, assist sperm motility and relieve vaginal dryness to increase the changes of getting pregnant.

Fertility Lubricants and Low Sperm Count

Fertility lubricants may also assist where the male partner suffers from a low sperm count because additional moisture and trace elements provide an easier path for sperm to swim up through the cervix and to reach the egg. A low sperm count does not mean that you cannot have children, it means that there are fewer than normal healthy sperm in an ejaculation so with this in mind it makes good sense to use a fertility lubricant that contains magnesium and calcium ions to ensure sperm remain healthy for as long as possible while they make their long journey towards the egg.

Review: “…this one actually helped to recreate the same PH level the sperm are used to”

Review: “Swim spermies, swim!”

We wanted to share with you this review taken from the Conceive Plus page on Amazon.com:
“This product maybe a little expensive but it’s totally worth it. I bought the conceive plus lube when my husband and I decided to start our family in March 2011. I had read that normal lubes killed sperm and this one actually helped to recreate the same PH level the sperm are used to in the scrotum so they can survive longer when trying to reach the egg. Other fertility lubes, such as PreSeed are advertized only as a vaginal moisturizer.

I became pregnant the first cycle we used this lube. My Husband wasn’t too crazy about it because it dried up faster than regular lubes and wasn’t quite as slippery, but it still got the job done. I contribute getting pregnant so quickly to using this lube during the fertile part of my cycle. I would and have recommended this lube to my friends that are also TTC their little ones.

And we still have a ton of it left and will continue to use it as we TTC our future little ones.”
