We are bringing back regular eNews updates. We'll be sending eNews twice a month with summaries of new blog posts by Dr. E and any news about Pre-Seed.
It's hard to believe that ten years ago, way back in 2002, Pre-Seed the world's first "fertility-friendly" lubricant was born! In this issue we share some other changes, including a new look for our boxes, and some information about how stress impacts women who are trying to conceive.
|Pre-Seed Celebrates 10 Years|
We have a new look and a new site for 2012!
Over the past 10 years, we have maintained Pre-Seed as a family-owned business (in spite of many offers), based on our commitment to the quality and integrity of Pre-Seed. This month, we are happy to be updating our website and coming out with a new Pre-Seed carton design! We think the new site will make for a more informative, interactive place to connect with our Pre-Seed family. Pre-Seed is also once again available through our own store online
at the new site. Some of you may remember the days when that was the ONLY way you could buy it!
Our new Pre-Seed carton (blue AND pink) will be coming to stores over the next few months. We have also introduced a new flip-top tube
for those of you wanting to use a sperm-safe lubricant externally. Read More...
