When James and I decided to start trying for children, we didn’t think it would be quite as hard as it was. We got started, and when conception didn’t happen after a few months, we started to feel a little unsure.
Two more months went by (for a total of six months), and the two of us became concerned. I had a yearly checkup scheduled so I discussed the lack of pregnancy with my doctor. She assured me we were fine and we wouldn’t need to start considering fertility treatment options until we had been trying to conceive a full year.
Luckily for us, I became pregnant with Sawyer just two months after that doctor’s appointment. I can’t tell you how shocking, and almost unbelievable, it was to see the word “Pregnant” on my digital test.
Before conceiving, James and I dealt with nerve-wracking eight months, especially as the time wore on and we were getting negative pregnancy tests, one after the other — that lovely pee on a stick every month phase.
I wish I had more options for at-home fertility assistance back then, such as Astroglide TTC Trying to Conceive™. This lubricant is made for couples who have decided to try for a baby. It’s specialized formula enhances the environment so more sperm get to their destination with improved mobility.
I certainly would not have hesitated in trying something so affordable that could have increased our chances of conception, especially given how easy the lube is to use. Eight disposable, pre-filled applicators come in the pack, so there’s less mess and you just toss them when you’re done.
As with all Astroglide products, their TTC™ formula helps with dryness for a more pleasurable experience. It is able to give sperm a better chance of survival compared to traditional lubricants, so it’s a good choice for couples wanting to have a baby.
I know we don’t like to openly discuss topics related to sex and conception, and it’s a topic I rarely discuss here — but it’s important that couples trying to conceive know their options!
And with Astroglide TTC™, you have a fun, helpful way to allow sperm to move freely, so hopefully out the outcome you are hoping for soon! It retails for just $12.99, so it’s a low-cost option against its competitors.
