@mcbirnie: a D&C is a dilation & curettage. It's a diagnostic procedure that can be done for several reasons...

Pre-seed is a lubricant that mimics EWCM and that is safe for sperm - most others are the wrong pH and don't help to keep the little guys alive long enough to get them where they need to go.  You can pick it up at Walgreens or online =)
