Did you ever conceive while using lubricants?

I have recently read journal articles telling how toxic lubricants are to sperm (not Pre-seed...that is the only one mostly sperm-friendly). I had no idea! Since I am still breastfeeding I need lube (tmi). I am curious if anyone got PG using lubricants. I am not activelyTTC but not avoiding either but am curious since I read these articles. I know one mama that conceived while using astroglide.

Wait! Any lubricants or spermicidal ones? I mean, I've used KY before but had no idea that it was harmful to sperm!

any lubricants...not spermicide although apparently many lubricants act as a spermicide that do not contain nonoxnyl-9 (sp)

I've never concieved while using a lubricant. The only one that i've heard was ok to use while ttc is preseed, but its kinda pricey. Also, maybe tmi, saliva is also bad for spermies.

DS2 was conceived using "Pre-Seed" a lubricant that is actually MORE friendly to sperm than going natural.

Yes! I've been avoiding those while TTC!
I just had a hunch.
I'm pretty dry from breastfeeding too, but we've found other ways to make it work.

Re: Did you ever conceive while using lubricants?

DD it would have been KY Liquid and this time around it was just a generic store brand of lubricating jelly without Non9. I honestly don't remember though if we used it this time or not, I could ask DH, but I think he would think I had gone off the deep end if he new I was posting publically about this topic.
