Conceive Plus is a fertility friendly lubricant that has been designed for couples trying to conceive. It has been clinically proven to be non toxic to sperm and can be safely used by couples trying to conceive. The lubricant has been designed to mimic fertile cervical mucus and to enhance love making without harming or impeding the movement of sperm through the female reproductive system.
Many other intimate lubricants that are not fertility friendly can impede or damage sperm so it is important for couple trying to conceive to only use a fertility friendly lubricant.
Infertility Network, a leading UK infertility charity, wants to spread the word to doctors about infertility. They have found from patient feedback that many GP surgeries do not have leaflets & information that they can pass onto their patients about infertility and they would like to change this.
They are looking for volunteers to distribute some Infertility Network UK leaflets & posters to GP surgeries in their local area.
Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovary. The egg then travels into the fallopian tube where it is ready to be fertilized. In order for conception to occur, the egg must be fertilized by sperm within approximately 24 hours of its release from the ovary. This is quite a short window of time and is known as the ‘fertile time’.
The LH surge
Immediately prior to ovulation, the body produces a large amount of luteinizing hormone (LH) which triggers the release of a ripened egg from the ovary. This LH surge usually takes place in the middle of the menstrual cycle. Ovulation prediction kits or OPKs as they are known for short detect the LH surge in urine, signalling that ovulation is likely to occur in the next 24-36 hours. Ovulation prediction tests help you predict the time of ovulation, and peak fertility. It is during this fertile time that conception is most likely to occur.
