Avoid Artificial Lubricants

To boost your fertility, avoid the use of artificial lubricants. These lubricants often contain chemicals that can damage or kill sperm. Clinical studies show that sperm mobility is reduced by 60 to 100 percent after one hour of contact with commercial lubricants. This applies to regular over-the-counter lubricants, petroleum jelly, plain glycerin, and even saliva.

Instead of using a lubricant, try to lengthen the amount of time you and your partner spend on sexual foreplay. For most women, more foreplay ensures arousal and increases their own natural vaginal secretions. If you still feel that you need an additional lubricant, try egg whites. Strange as it sounds, egg whites closely mimic your own fertile phase cervical mucus and have been shown to encourage sperm mobility.
