Walgreens to Carry Pre-Seed "fertility-friendly" Lubricant Nationwide

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - INGfertility, based in Spokane, WA, has announced that Pre-Seed® "fertility-friendly" Personal Lubricant is now available in all Walgreens pharmacies nationwide by June 1, 2011. "We are very excited to be adding this retail location for Pre-Seed!" stated GD Clifton, CEO of INGfertility. "Walgreens has been our most requested retail location for Pre-Seed, and we have had an amazing response to this news at Facebook." Clifton also added, "Last year at this time, Pre-Seed was available in 500 U.S. pharmacies. By June of this year, Pre-Seed will be in 15,000 retail locations!"

Pre-Seed is the only lubricant able to state that it is "safe to use when trying to conceive," based on regulatory clearance. Pre-Seed's formula matches the pH, osmolality (ion content) and viscosity (thickness) of fertile cervical mucus. It can be applied internally prior to intercourse to mimic fertile secretions and provide an optimal environment for sperm. In contrast, most everyday lubricants harm sperm and may keep them from swimming to the egg normally. "Many couples who are trying to conceive have increased incidence of vaginal dryness due to intercourse on-demand," said Clifton. "Pre-Seed offers a safe alternative for these couples. And having Pre-Seed available at Walgreens offers consumers greater access for their personal care shopping." Several published clinical studies support the use of Pre-Seed by couples who are trying to conceive (TTC) and by physicians during fertility interventions. In the physician guideline "Optimizing Natural Fertility," the American Society for Reproductive Medicine cites the need for informed lubricant use by TTC couples, including mentioning Pre-Seed as an appropriate choice.

"As a pharmacist, I have great respect for the Walgreens brand and quality model," Clifton additionally noted. "We are pleased with this partnership and look forward to working together."
