So we started our first month ttc (now in the 2ww) and I’m just now reading that water based lubricants prevent conception?! Did I seriously mess up here? Do I still have a chance of bfp this month?! Has anybody here had a bfp and used regular lubricants? Ughh…

@michellelovesjohn: I am sure if it were a fool proof method of contraception alot more people would be using it as such (instead of all the other crap we put up with as BC)! You are still in with a chance IMO 🙂

Yeah I heard that it is hard for sperm to maneuver through most kinds of lube. One site suggested using canola oil, but I wouldn’t want to put things from my kitchen cabinet in there. XD I say you still have a chance, but to discontinue using it if you don’t get your BFP this time. 🙂

Evidence here that its a myth! We used it and i conceived.

I’m sure it’s possible to concieve regardless, but to ensure the best chances you shouldn’t use lube, as it can definitely kill/impede his swimmers.
HOWEVER – pick up some Pre-Seed from the drugstore instead. It’s not toxic to sperm AND it’s actually supposed to be designed to mimic your CM. A lot of the ladies actively TTC-ing on here use it if they feel like they don’t produce enough egg-white CM.
Hopefully you don’t have to worry about it though. FX for ya.

I’m not sure but we used pre-seed and conceived. So that is a good option.
