Personal lubricants, what are safe?

MommyMegan,
[i]You've been married a couple of months and you're just now asking about this? LOL[/i]
I don't use it at home, but have never had trouble at the Gyn with regular KY jelly. It is produced for medical standards, so I don't think there would be any cross-contamination with nut products.
I have had several reactions to dyes, meds & sulfites and the KY does not bother me at all.
HTH,
Daisy

I don't see why the normal basic ones wouldn't be safe. I've never had a problem using something like KY.
Now --- I think when you get to the fancier stuff that has all sorts of junk to """enhance""" in 'stuff your body doesn't normally do' ways...then I think you have to to call the manufacturer.
Just stick the basic old KY formula...no flavors, no gimmicks. The ones you find in novelty shops and such that are flavored or heat up or whatever...those are just bad for yer woman-parts...can end up with infections and such.

...sorry for this TMI...but just for the record (speaking from experience)
If you will come in contact with his microsopic marching mariachis...be sure he is on a peanut and nut free diet.
I *have had* a reaction south of the border due to my man eating peanut products the day before.
scroll through the adult pa forum and you'll find old posts along this tone.
This stuff is a real concern, and hence we have the Adults Living with PA area...in case all those 'rents on the board don't want to think about when their kids grow up and have these sorts of issues. How do you bring THAT up with your child? "Oh, by the way dear daughter, if you xyz be sure he doesn't eat peanuts if he's going to abc"
yada yada yada
Are ya blushing now?

My gyn when I was first married said to just use regular old veg oil - unless you're using a latex based barrier because the oil will break down the latex rendering it ineffective.

P.S. I had a reaction a few weeks ago because DH ate at Logan's Roadhouse (you know peanuts all over the floor). He hadn't even eaten any peanuts and had showered off any dust. I still reacted!

At one point, I wrote to Dr. John Weisnagel (really good PA research blog) and specifically asked him about men's 'little friends' that like to swim upstream.
Peanut protein, nut, milk, egg, etc. *CAN AND DOES* end up in that substance. Just like how it can end up in breast milk.
So---it's not an old wive's tale...it's real.
Someone on here a long while ago now, reported she reacted to her husband's sweat (which protein can also show up in)...I think she had a severe sesame or shellfish allergy.

Megan, if you're reacting to the old standards (KY, astroglide, etc), you might be sensitive to the glycerin or preservatives. You could look for a silicone lubricant. There's one on my bedside stand that is just that.

I guess I should've said, the only lubricant I've ever had.. 'in' me..is the GYN kind at the OB. Never tried any other kind. We would like to...'experiment', kwim? hehehheheheehheheh -turns 8 shades of red and runs away.

If you ever use condoms, you need to use lube. That's how they're meant to be used and the "proper use" percentages include use of lube with the condoms.
Just a heads up.
Find yourself an adult novelty store, read the labels, and have fun.

Don't most condoms have lubrication on them?

Not used regularly here either. Just when I went off the pill and wanted it completely out of my system before getting pregnant. Those were not very exciting months. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

If you need to use them, try the polyurethane ones - they don't smell bad. Can't use latex here - trust me, you don't want to know. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] Talk about TMI, LOL.
