BFP with Preseed

Pre-Seed, the sperm-friendly lubricant (and only lube that should be used while trying-to-conceive) is a staple of the TTC community. We love it, and we'd hazard a guess that all these ladies on this page with BFPs speak highly of it as well!

If you don't have Pre-Seed yet, we recommend you pick some up at It ships for free anywhere in the U.S. or Canada, and comes with free pregnancy tests. Can't beat that. And when you get your Pre-Seed assisted BFP and you're ready to give credit where credit is due, by all means, send us your symptoms here!

Preseed was the biggest key!

First I wanted to say what a great website you have!! Second I would love to tell you my story.

We got our BFP after 2 months of ttc. About two years ago, just before I was getting married, I was diagnosed with Carcinoma In situ of the cervix. My doctor did a cold knife conization and took about 20 percent of my cervix to get rid of the cancer. Because of the surgery my CM was barely there and I was told it would be difficult to get pregnant without it! When I told my doctor we were going to start ttc he mentioned Mucinex or Robitusson (just
the expectorant kind), he said it would thin out what I do have and help me in that department. I also did some research and decided to try Preseed because without CM, BD'ing doesn't feel as great either.

The first month using Mucinex and Preseed and not moving a muscle for at least 30 minutes after BDing, after receiving a positive OPK we got our BFP! I know there are a lot of women out there that have been diagnosed with something similar and are as worried as I was and that is why I had to share my story. I really believe that Preseed was the biggest key!

1. Slight cramping
2. Seriously hungry
3. Extremely tired

Preseed Helped Us!

Hello all!

After purchasing a Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor and bd'ing on all the right days for the past four months only to have AF rear her ugly head every cycle, I finally decided to try PreSeed this month. This was the only thing
I did differently this cycle (and some serious praying).. and now I'm pregnant!!!! I had very little ewcm and I think using the PreSeed gave us the advantage we needed in order to conceive. I am thanking God first for this little
miracle but I think PreSeed definitely helped. I would STRONGLY recommend it to anyone who is TTC.

P.S. Along with PreSeed, I also used Evening Primrose Oil from menstruation-ovulation. I also drank a few cups of green tea every day and for a few days before ovulation I used Robitussin. Good luck getting your BFP's very soon!!

Preseed BFP with Male Factor

I just wanted to share my story briefly. My husband has been told for most of his life that he cannot have children. So we were in complete shock when we became pregnant in 2005. We assumed that they were incorrect about him and when our son turned a year old we began trying for number 2. After about 13 months of BFNs we decided to get help. My husband had an SA done that showed him to only have 2 million swimmers. We were devastated. So we went to the RE and had beginning blood work done. We have had a lot of things going on in our life (promotion and a move), so we never made it back for him to get the followup SA. So, hearing such wonderful things about Preseed I ordered the inserts. In July it was the only thing that we did differently out of all the other months. (I didn't even use OPKs!!) We got our BFP yesterday. We are so thrilled. We can't believe it. We love Preseed and would definitely recommend it to anyone TTC.

Preseed BFP

Hi everyone! I have spent a lot of time the past few months reading ttc success stories. Now I thought I would share my pregnancy success story. My husband and I conceived our 2.5 year old son the first month we tried. We thought conceiving #2 would be just as easy. IT WAS NOT. We tried naturally for 8 months, my OBGYN would not do anything for us since we had no trouble with the first one. I went to an herbalist and after the first month I was pregnant, but miscarried the baby at 7 weeks. I went to the herbalist for another couple months, but nothing happened so I quit. We kinda gave up for a couple months, then I read about Preseed on a website.

I read the testimonials and thought why not try it. I ordered a box that day. I never told my husband because he was getting tired of all the new things I kept wanting to try. I used Preseed twice (two days before ovulation and the day of ovulation). He never knew but made the comment that it "felt good." I again expected another BFN this cycle, so I waited until 13 dpo to test. I took a FRE test and it had a very very very faint positive line.....but I threw it out because I was sure it was false and I was just forcing my eyes to see a line. Today I was destined to get AF, but my temp was still up so I pulled out a ClearBlue Easy test and got the + right away. I had another FRE test and took it too. It was positive, but still really faint (so much for getting results up to 5 days early).

I think the whole problem while TTC for us was that I did not have good CM, I also tried to drink green tea from day after AF to ovulation but I only could drink it about four days. I am not really sure if it really did anything for me.

Don't give up hope and try something new!!! I did and it worked for me!

BFP with Preseed

I just got a BFP at 11DPO on FRER at 6PM (I hadn't drunk anything or peed since noon.) This is my 4th cycle TTC#1 and both DH and I are 31. I really hope that this one sticks. On my second cycle, I had a chemical PG. But that time I didn't get a BFP until 15 DPO and it was super light. So I'm trying not to get too excited about this one yet.

Since I know everyone likes details, I'll provide them.

What I did differently this cycle:
1. Used Preseed beginning at CD11 until O was confirmed.
2. Didn't chart that much (just to confirm O and a few other random days.)
3. BD approx. 36 hours apart the 3 days leading up to O (Thurs PM, Sat AM, Sun PM with O on Sunday.)

Other things that I did or didn't do:
1. No green tea or robitussin (I did that on some of my previous cycles.)
2. Pillow under butt for between 10-20 minutes after BD.
3. Took PNV every day.

1. slight cramping and slight nausea, but not anything different from previous cycles. I actually had horrible cramping last month, and BFN.
2. horrible acne on my chin (hasn't happened this badly before)

BFP the first cycle we used Preseed

Hi all- I just got my BFP yesterday after trying for 14 months since a miscarriage in Apr. 2004. What was different this cycle is I used Preseed for the first time. And it worked. My husband and I were also on a short vacation in Rhode Island during my ovulation. I definetly commend Preseed and time away to my BFP. As far as symptoms so far, not really much. I did have bad gas and bloating last night, a cold sore (which I never get), and a little swollen nipples. I did have spotting on Thurs. and Fri (brownish TMI) which I thought was AF but then it went away. Hoping that was implantation. Good luck to all!

BFP after trying Preseed for the first time!

I hope this can help someone else who trails the sites on there two week wait like I did everyone month before I got my BFP.

It is funny I only joined this site a few days ago,although I did always look on it before FOR FIVE MONTHS, I REALLY HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE!

This is what I did different this month....

1. This was the first month I didn't use a ovulation kit, I just worked it out from the other months I used them, and crossed my fingers.

2. This was the first month we used PRESEED!!! (so it must have worked)

3. We had sex when we wanted it, as well as on ovulation dates and had fun and enjoyed the sex rather than thinking of making a baby. I had more orgasams this month because of this (sorry about the info but I do think it must have helped)

4. I had lots of egg white CM this month the last few months before I had nothing! (could be the preseed perhaps?) or may be I never really ovulated properly before?

5. I ate more fruit and veg this month, five bits every morning, and didn't drink diet coke which I did before a lot.

My symptoms.......

Soon after I must have ovulated I had a bad headache and very sore boobs (but I GET THIS WITH AF AND IT WAS MORE OR LESS THE SAME, IN THE SIDES OF BOOBS)

I had pains constantly until I got my BFP, like pricking pains and a burning sensation, in lower groin, the burning was a key as I don't get that with AF pains, and its rare for me to get pains like this that early on, I had restless sleep, I did feel tired. (but that's not hard for me!!!)

I had this feeling it might be the month.

Around roughly 10po I felt sick,and did a cheapie internet test, there was a very faint line on it, I then did a clear blue one and another faint line (it was so faint I had to hold it up to the window LIGHT!) I thought may be a evap line?

I left it a day, my pains still carried on a few sharp lots of burning, like something hot had been implanted inside me on each side of groin, I did also have pains like my AF was coming as well, so it was quite confusing.

Around 11dpo- postive PREGNANT on digital clear blue, still burning pains,the feeling of being very content.

Around 12dpo- positive on clear blue + test (a little faint though.)

Around 13dpo- still pains didn't do a test today but knew I was, all night I felt sick and couldn't sleep.

14dpo - AF due today- got clear+ on clear blue test, and another PREGNANT on clear blue digital.

I have no pains in boobs what so ever, all stopped and the burning pains have gone but still some sharp pains in lower pelvis.

I hope it sticks!!!!!!!!!!!! Baby dust to all and good luck!
And if you can use PREESEED!!!!!!!! DO!!! I only used it once and got BFP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!

I really hope this helps someone !!!!

BFP with Preseed

I just wanted to share my bfp with pre-seed story with you, since I found this website very helpful when I was ttc. Me and dh had been trying for 4 months, 2 of which were with pre-seed. We usually bd’ed every other day throughout the whole cycle, but the last month when we got our bfp we bd’ed about every two days and every other only around ovulation. Each time we used pre-seed. I love pre-seed. It’s not that expensive, not nearly as expensive as fertility vitamins and opks, so why not spend the $15.00 since the chances of you getting your bfp increase dramatically. In addition to pre-seed, I took 2 ovulexes a day and the last month started taking one vitex (chasteberry tree) a day.  Also I took 1 - 2 Mucinex a day from menstration to ovulation. I also drank 1 – 3 cups of greentea (decaff) and only drank decaff soda (me and dh). Lastly, I said lots of prayers for my little one to be. I hope this helps all you women out there ttc.

Baby dust to you all!!!!

BFP with Preseed and Low Sperm Count

DH and I were married in 1998. We tried unsuccessfully for a few years before deciding to go to the doctor. We found out that DH has a sperm count of less than 2mil. and low morph and low motility (sorry I can't think of exact #'s). We were told that there was a chance we could get pregnant naturally but it would take awhile and our best chance was IVF with ICSI. We thought about it for awhile and finally decided we would do IUI's with DS. While waiting for the first consult with a new doctor for the IUI's, I decided
that we should try until the doctor called.

I signed up for an account with Fertility Friend, ordered Preseed, and started using OPK's again. Well, lo and behold the third month of trying this and I got a BFP! I'm still in shock. I really do think it was the combination of the 3 things I tried that helped me get pregnant. So good luck girls. It is possible to get a BFP when DH's s/a results aren't very good. Baby dust to you all.

BFP with Clomid and Donor Sperm

My DH and I have been TTC for a year. 2 months ago we found out my DH has a very LSC so we started using donor sperm. I have also been on Clomid 50mg days 5-9 for 2 cycles.

2DPO / CD 17 I am very nauseous!! I have an iron stomach and I feel like I might actually throw up.

7DPO / CD 21 I started cramping a little bit. Started this AM Temp is still up, other than that not many sx.

8DPO I am feeling low O pains, mostly on lower right side.

9DPO Definitely AF cramps. I feel moody and sad. AF is definitely looming

11dpo Spotted a very little bit of br blood at around 10a. I had cramps all day. I also had the usual day before my period blahs in the afternoon.

12dpo I am still cramping. I am going to start my period tomorrow I know it.

13dpo Earlier in the day I was crying for no reason. I was exhausted by 11a. Very faint +HPT at 3p!!!

14dpo darker, but still faint, +hpt with fmu!!!!!!! DH even saw this one. Test was 10mui. I do still have AF like cramps.

15dpo I have taken 11 test total and the lines are getting darker!! Called my OB/GYN and scheduled my 8 week u/s!

Things I did differently:

We used preseed. I love this stuff and I highly recommend trying it.

I tried to not obsess about every symptom... and I relaxed more.

I just have to say that this was the one cycle where I would have SWORN I was not pregnant! My cramps, moods, everything told me I was going to start my period. So don't give up hope ladies!!!
