Does use of lubricants during intercourse interfere with conception? Which lubricant should be used if women is trying for pregnancy. Please advise. Thanks.

Hello- Yes it does. Commercial lubricants negatively affect sperm motility, making it harder for the sperm to reach the egg. If you are using one, try Pre-Seed, a sperm-friendly lubricant. Or if you prefer a more natural lube, olive oil, vegetable oil, baby oil, and even egg whites are safe and effective.

Preferably no lubricant when you are trying for pregnancy.
