    Anyone use Replens?

    This product was recommended to me, but I am so scared to use it! It really reminds me of Monistat, which I've never used either! Sex hurts like whoa, and my poor husband--its been probably about a month since we've had sex. Thats sad for being newlyweds.

    Are there really clumps? How long after I use it will the 'clumps' go away?

    Sorry if this post grossed anyone out! I totally didn't intend to.

    I actually just used the Replens. I got the nerve to do it! It was just like a mini turkey baster!

    I'm doing ok, I have good days and bad days. I am very emotional lately, I cry at the drop of a hat. I'm still waiting for my Fragile X test to come back. I will keep everyone updated when I find out. I feel like this POF is consuming my life and I hate that. I just wish I could get my mind off of it.

    How are you doing?

    Replens has a low pH and is definitely not sperm friendly. I tried it a few times and had the same disgusting clumping experience. How the heck is sperm supposed to move through that...impossible!

    A few cycles ago, I tried Preseed and the stuff is awesome. It's supposed to be very sperm friendly, too.

    What exactly is preseed? I've heard of it, but not sure what it is.

    I don't think it matters if the Replens in sperm friendly for us at this point. I've given up on trying to get pregnant on our own. My FSH is 156, so I'm really just looking for something to help with the painful sex.

    Here is a link http://www.preseed.com/providers/nosite.html It's extremely slippery stuff, not gel-like like Replens is.

    I haven't used Replens.
    But I second the Preseed recommendation. We've been using Preseed & Pre' (same content as preseed, but different packaging) for more than a year - it is great and I haven't had any problems.

    On the flip side, it is kind of expensive.
