How Does Conceive Plus Fertility Lubricant Work?  



The Conceive Plus fertility-friendly formulation is different to other vaginal lubricants and to other sperm friendly lubricants available. Conceive Plus fertility friendly lubricant is a Patented formulation, developed by Doctors specially for couples who are trying to conceive naturally!

Conceive Plus helps by removing a barrier to fertility, adding additional moisture to help create an environment where sperm viability and sperm motility are maintained. The additional lubrication provided by Conceive Plus helps by increasing the probability of sperm being able to reach the egg. Vaginal dryness is a key issue for most couples when ttc and most couples will not notice it, or think it is an issue for them. Conceive Plus helps relieve vaginal dryness to increase the chances of conception.

How Does Calcium and Magnesium Ions Help?

Conceive Plus is the only fertility friendly lubricant in the world that contains Calcium and Magnesium ions. These ions are essential for cell viability in our bodies and essential for the process of fertilization. There are many published studies that show the importance of Calcium and Magnesium and we believe that these ions help to support the natural functions of the body to increase the chances of getting pregnant naturally. 


How is it Different to Personal Lubricant?

Regular personal lubricants can create a barrier to sperm motility, reducing the ability of sperm to fertilize the egg. 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 help create a fertility-friendly environment.

Regular lubricants are proven to have negative effects on the fertilization process because they can damage sperm and/or hinder sperm movement. Regular lube should be avoided when you are trying to conceive.

The images below demonstrate the typical lubricant barrier created between sperm and regular personal lubricants after 10 minutes, and how sperm is able to swim through Conceive Plus® and stay healthy.
