Sex Lubricants In Pregnant Women?
Morning, want to ask about sex lubricants for pregnant women. My contents have been 40 weeks but there are no signs of wanting to be born, so I was advised to induce, I was advised to try natural induction first, one of them by having sex, but it turns out my vagina is very dry, so I use baby oil for lubrication, is it safe or not? if it’s not safe, what should I do because it’s already used, then what is the recommended lubricant that is safe? thanks.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Sexual intercourse can be an alternative to stimulate uterine contractions in a pregnancy that is approaching the estimated delivery of labor. However, dry vaginal complaints can be a barrier due to the influence of hormonal changes during pregnancy. To overcome this so that sexual intercourse is more comfortable and does not cause pain by holding longer foreplay with a partner. Penetration does not need to be rushed so that women have enough time to produce abundant vaginal fluid as a lubricant. In addition, it can also use additional lubricants to facilitate penetration. For pregnant women you should use water-based lubricants and no additional coloring or flavoring. The lubricant is usually tube shaped. Actually baby oil can also be used but you should use pure baby oil without the addition of fragrance. If complaints arise of regular contractions, bleeding spots or fluid seeping from the vagina after intercourse, you should immediately consult with your midwife or doctor in preparation for labor.
That's all, hope you can help.
