I have read so many conflicting reports about what type of lubricant is conducive to conception. I heard to use baby oil and then another report said anything oil based is bad. Then I read a little astroglide was OK, but another report said it interfered with sperm mobility. I am not comfortable using raw egg white because I'm afraid of infection. Ugghhh, it is so confusing. I know some folks don't use anything but it's just not comfortable for us unless we have a "little" bit of help, any suggestions?
blueshore I have problems with lubricants period..there are so many things I am allergic to. This sounds time consuming but this is what hubby and I do. I have one or two things that get me very..umm..excited and hubby does these things for a long time. We say things to each other and take a while building up to everything. This gives me time to get enough of my own lubrication. It takes about 15 min. in all but to me the extra time gives hubby and me time to bond and try new things. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif"> I don't know if you have a physical problem but if not this really does work. It just takes a little more time and foreplay. Plus, it helps me enjoy sex more b/c I feel closer to my hubby and not like a blow up doll. I guess I make him work for it!! Hope I could help some.
Smile, life doesn't last that long.
I guess since I am the only one asking, maybe I am the only one who's never heard of using raw egg whites for lubrication. Gross!
Are you sure you're not confusing the type of mucous discharge that you should see from you're own body at the time of the month when you are ovulating?
I know the mucous discharge that is present when ovulating is described as looking much like raw egg whites. Clear, slippery, and stretchy like raw egg white are.
If you are experiencing a lot of dryness, and intercourse is uncomfortable, you should talk to your doctor. Make sure that you are spending enough time for foreplay. I simply just won't allow my husband to "enter" me anymore unless I am wet enough. I got tired of marathon forplay. But there maybe something wrong, it could have to do with medication that you may be taking, or hormonal. Also be sure you're drinking enough water.
Almost all lubricants interfere with getting pregnant. I was scared of the egg white thing too, but I used it. Even your own saliva kills sperm. The only things that dont is egg white and water. Have you tried using Evening Primrose Oil? That increases lubrication naturally alot.
Uhhh, that is really disgusting! I don't think I could ever have tried that either! And yes this is the first I've heard of it. I'm going to have ask my friends if they've heard of this too. Thanks for letting me know. (though i'm not sure that I want to know now...)
Hello, I am new to searching these boards as I just found out I was pregnant on Friday. A real blessing as I am 39 and no other children. We both have fertility issues and were unable to conceive. We did fertiltiy drugs last year and IUI with no success. I generally need a little assistance with lubrication and we use KY. However, one night in February we let nature take it's course without anything and lo and behold we conceived. Miracle from God. I would encourage you to not use anything if you can. I am at 42 days now and won't see my doctor until next week. Needless to say a lot of emotions are playing in but I am trusting in HIM. My best to you and to all who read these messages. They are so helpful. My heartfelt thanks. Kim
