What Lube should I use

There are three types of lubricants, Water, Silicone and Oil based lubricants

Water-Based Lubricants

Water-Based Lubricants: If you have recurrent yeast infections, these are the lubricants to use. They can contain vegetable-derived glycerin, which does not trigger yeast infections like the other lubes.

  • Pros: Last longer than lubricants with glycerin, can reduce irritation to the genitals, safe with latex condoms, do not stain fabric, usually thicker and provide a cushion, recommended for anal play.
  • Cons: Can have a bitter taste due to the absence of glycerin, some contain parabens or propylene glycol can irritate the skin.

Silicone Lubricants:

  1. These last the longest of all and are especially recommended for women with chronic vaginal dryness or genital pain. Silicone lubricant is different from the silicone used in breast implants and is not considered dangerous, it cannot penetrate through the skin’s pores. Most silicone lubricants are hypoallergenic.

  • Cons: Expensive, cannot be used with silicone or most sex toys, difficult to find, must be washed off with soap and water if too much is used.

Oil-Based Lubricants

  1. These lubricants often can be found in your kitchen. The general rule is that if it’s safe for you to eat, it’s safe to put on your vulva and inside your vagina. The body can clear out natural oils more easily than petroleum-based lubricants. Certain oils, such as grapeseed and apricot, tend to be thin and therefore better for vaginal intercourse than some of the others.

    • Pros: Great for genital massages, safe for the vagina, safe to eat, good for all forms of sexual play, low-cost, easily accessible.

    • Cons: Destroy latex condoms, stain fabric.
