Egg white to conceive

I read on one site that you can use real egg whites to help with fertilization. It said many women over 35 don't have enough natural egg white during ovulation and this is a sperm friendly alternative and allowed the same consistency and protection towards fertilization.It sounds strange to me, but women were swearing they used it and it worked for them.I was hoping you knew if this is true.

Dear Linda,

Some people recommend egg white as a form of lubrication during sexual intercourse. This only applies to women who need artificial lubricants such as KY Jelly or Astroglide during intercourse. The theory is that KY Jelly and Astroglide could be harmful to sperm. In actual practice, artificial lubricants have little impact on pregnancy rates. They may have an increased impact in the case of men with a low sperm count.

Egg white does not promote fertilization.

Sincerely,

Amy
