Conceive Plus for Clomid Users

With all the lovely side effects from Clomid, hot flushes, headaches, mood swings to name a few, have you ever wondered about your cervical mucus being affected?

Clomid binds to estrogen receptors (including the estrogen receptors in the cervix) this can interfere with the ability of the cervical mucus glands to produce fertile mucus. The lack of fertile CM leading up to ovulation can interfere with the sperm penetrating through the cervix and into the fallopian tubes. Using Clomid may also decrease the quality of CM your body produces.

Another side affect may be vaginal dryness (due to the lack in CM). This of course can make it very uncomfortable for both you and your partner.

So what can you do? Using regular lubricants like KY Jelly can actually be harming your chances of conception. There is however a Sperm friendly lubricant called Conceive Plus available from Making Babies.

Conceive Plus is the only lubricant that contains Calcium and Magnesium ions that are essential for cell viability and the process of fertilization. It aids in the sperm "swimming" through the cervix and into the fallopian tubes.
