For some couples trying to conceive is not as easy as the whole idea may seem.
There are hormone levels, timing for ovulation and well, doing the deed. It's quite an interesting balance of things that have to line up just right in order for conception to occur. If conception is taking longer than you had hoped, one area that could be hindering the process can come into play with lubrication. The female body naturally makes lubrication (or cervical mucus) and when you're in your fertile time, your mucus (or lubrication) will change to be 'sperm-friendly.' The right amount, consistency and pH balance has to be achieved in order to help those guys and sometimes a lady doesn't make enough of her own (thanks, hormones). The lubrications you generally can find at the drug store typically are counter-productive to trying to conceive. They don't generally have the right pH balance or constancy to help the sperm and usually hinder the process. Here are 8 sperm-friendly lubricants (both natural and store bought) that you may want to consider using these if you're trying to conceive. - By Devon McGuinness
