A fertility friendly lubricant system enables couples, trying to conceive, to use lubricants that are pH and osmolality matched to semen during ovulation and matched to typical vaginal pH after ovulation. Semen is neutral to alkaline, so using an acidic lubricant at ovulation may damage sperm motility. The vagina is typically acidic, which maintains a healthy defence against infection, so using a neutral to alkaline lubricant all month may impact vaginal health. The typical acidic vaginal environment protects against infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis and Thrush.
