Inhibition of motility of bovine, canine and equine spermatozoa by artificial vagina lubricants

Inhibition of motility of bovine, canine and equine spermatozoa by artificial vagina lubricants

Theriogenology 20(3): 357-361

The effects of four vaginal lubricants on progressive spermatozoal motility were evaluated. Neat semen was exposed to 0, 5, or 10% (w/v) of H-R, sterile K-Y, nonsterile K-Y or Maxilube lubricating jellies for 10 min at 37 degrees C and then extended to 10x10(6) spermatozoa/ml. Spermatozoal motility was evaluated after 0, 1, 2, 4 and 6 or 8 h of incubation at 37 degrees C. For bovine spermatozoa, sterile K-Y jelly at 10% suppressed motility (P<0.05), but nonsterile K-Y, H-R and Maxilube jellies had no effect. Maxilube was toxic (P<0.01) to canine spermatozoa and is not recommended for use during collection or insemination of canine semen. Exposure of equine semen to 10% H-R jelly had no effect on spermatozoal motility, whereas 10% sterile K-Y, nonsterile K-Y or Maxilube jellies suppressed (P<0.05) motility. For all three species, the new, nonsterile K-Y jelly was no more deleterious to spermatozoal motility than the old, sterile K-Y jelly, and H-R jelly also was satisfactory. Fertility tests are required to determine the effect of these products on fertility.
