Question re: lube

Postby jean » Sun Mar 20, 2011 10:42 am

My hubby and I have been using preseed when TTC..but my question is, after ovulation and during the 2ww, is it ok to go back to using KY, or should a person continue to use preseed? I know preseed is more sperm friendly, but I didn't know if the ingredients in KY would be bad for TTC after ovulation...(we prefer the consistency of that to preseed...and the expense!)

Thanks!

I would wait a few days after ovulation to be sure that you really ovulated. (For example, if you are temping, 3 days of rising temps is considered confirmation of ovulation. If you aren't temping, I'd give it about 5 days just to be sure.) Because KY and other lube can/will kill sperm which is not very helpful if there might still be an egg around for them to catch. After that, it's fine to use whatever.

I am about 4 DPO..I just wasn't sure if it would be bad for a fertilized egg or something. (Or bad for things before implatation)...heh, if I were lucky enough to be at that point anyway. ;)

4 dpo should be fine, the only reason lube is bad is because it kills sperm, it won't hurt a fertilized egg or anything.
