Which is better to use as lubricant? And by eggwhite i mean REAL eggwhites. TCOYF stresses how eggwhite is the only safe lubricant. I'm not sure why it doesn't mention pre-seed? Maybe because that would be advertising it?

So does anyone know which is actually better to use?

i have never heard of that, but i would be scared to use something like that internally (which regardless it would end up there anyway) I will have to do some research on that before I could or would recommend one way or the other...I think im sticking to Preseed...I have heard lots of good stuff about it...

I would never use real eggwhites... just sounds a little creepy. Preseed has been great for the months that I didn't have enough CM, and my RE was ok with me using preseed as well- so if he says it's ok, then it must be, right?

If I ever had those issues I would probably try eggwhites first... Something tells me that if nature makes it, it's probably better for you than something made in a lab.

Something about the thought of eggwhites creeps me out too! I actually like Pre Seed, but I'm not sure which one is really better!

I would never consider actual egg whites. I used and conceived while using Pre-Seed though.

There is no way that I would use actual egg whites as a lubricant. I mean, you aren't even supposed to eat uncooked eggs. If the eggs have any bacteria in them, you are putting it into a warm, moist environment, aka breeding ground for germs. Not sure its possible, but I'd hate to have to explain to a dr. ,or my family, about how I got salmonella through my vagina.

The eggwhites do sound pretty gross and the chances of bacteria growing would just freak me out too much. Lot of women get pregnant using pre-seed so I'll stick with it.

I love pre-seed! Not only is it good for TTC, but it feels better than any other lube we've used. Feels like the real stuff.

I hate preseed. It feels too sticky to me and not like real EWCM. Is that just me? My DH didn't like the way it felt. I'm lucky in that I have a lot of CM normally, but I did try it a few times, and it just didn't feel good to me.

But real egg whites would creep me out!!!

I agree with everyone else, the thought of using real egg whites grosses me out. Me and DH both really like Pre-Seed, so we'll keep using that!

I felt weird about eggwhites too and was surprised the book said there was hardly any risk of salmonella. Good to hear none of you are using it because i really didn't want to switch to it. lol. I'm definitely going to be sticking to using preseed.

When I read it in TCOYF I was a bit surprised too. I had found a lot of references NOT to use it before somebody gave me TCOYF, so I'm sticking with Pre-seed, even though its a bit expensive. Tried it for the first time last night.

I also found a reference on the Pre-seed site from Toni endorsing it.
