ToConceive Fertility Lubricant: First Impressions

I have been sick since mid-February. About a week ago, I got a High on my CBEFM! Too bad it was my last stick and I didn't have the funds to buy more in time. But, just a day or two later, I got my ToConceive fertility lubricant in the mail. I had wondered why there needed to be 3 months worth bought at once; and now I have my answer! 

In addition to using ToConceive when having intercourse, the woman should apply ToConceive daily after a shower/bath.  ToConceive promotes the woman's natural lubrication that encourages sperm capacitation, so daily application does make sense.  Also, I don't know about you, but sometimes if spontaneous love-making occurs it can be hard to put the brakes on. So, I like that if I use daily it can increase my own ability to to fertilize an egg.  Of course, chances would be even greater when using ToConceive each time we had intercourse.

This may seem immature, but I had to giggle at the instructions.  For daily application, one must apply a small amount to the clitoris and labia.  Quite honestly, my first thoughts were that basically I'm being encouraged to masturbate daily. Which, if you think about on the woman's side, does make sense. As I have been TTC for 4+ years, I think I can be OK with this. I learned to check my cervix, which is way more yucky and difficult. 

For those of you who might consider masturbation as abhorrent, it is not literally asking you to do this. You could simply apply the small amount of ToConceive and apply---remember this is a scientifically researched method, with actual results of improving a couples' chance of conception.  It does have a warm, tingly feeling--the first time I used it, that feeling lasted most of the morning, but subsequent uses the tingly feeling is not as strong or as long.

For those of you who do enjoy some self-love, I don't see how it would hurt to use this as an aid--in fact external stimulation naturally promotes a woman's arousal fluids and production of cervical mucus, so I don't see the harm. 

For ease of use of the product, the packaging and dispenser are high quality. Any difficulty was due partially to my own eagerness to get started, and weak wrists; I mistakenly believed that the lid was a screw top. It is not. Simply pull the silver lid off and you get one of those really great controlled dispensers. Since the amount each woman needs may vary, I would start off with a half-pump. I could see myself using a full pump, at least, for actual intercourse.  But for daily use, a half-pump should be sufficient. Plus, this stuff is liquid gold! I always take the philosophy that it is easier to start with a little and add more. 

Although I think I may have been close to ovulation based on my High on my CBEFM, I think I am about to get my period.  I'm going to blame it on the 2 week flu. But this gives me a month to start fresh, and practice use of the ToConceive along with my acupuncture treatments. 

Although I have been provided ToConceive product free of charge, I am providing my unbiased, honest opinion of the product and my experiences with it.
