I’ve been discovering the wonders of coconut oil for a couple of months now and most recently what an awesome lube it makes! Since we’re TTC and baby dancing lots I’ve been getting a little sore and dry, and wow, the coconut oil makes such a huge difference. I haven’t used it during my fertile time yet because I haven’t been able to find a solid answer on whether or not it kills sperm. So that’s why I’m asking here, since you all are already pregnant

PS- I've read about preseed but I'd prefer not to try it as I have a tendency towards bacterial infections and don't really want to risk that right now, as I just cleared up BV a couple months ago.

Yes, I got pregnant using it. I haven't heard if it kills sperm or not, but we use LOTS of it and got pregnant on our first "try" (first time we broke the FAM rules...).

It would not be a reliable form of birth control, that much is for sure, even if there may be some constituents that could deter sperm, using it as birth control would probably mean that you would get pregnant.

Yeah, I used it for ONE night when I noticed the yeastie beasties and it was 100% cleared up the next morning. Love this stuff!

Then maybe I will start using it as birth control But really, I don't think I'd ever use any of the stuff that is supposed to kill sperm (most lubes, etc) as birth control. When you want to kill off the sperm, nothing works well enough, but TTC, I don't want to use anything that's going to kill any off

Yes. In fact I think it's why I got pg. We tried for 5 years and nothing...switched to CO and bam

So no, definitely not a form of bc...

Wow, that's pretty amazing!

I think I will try to use it this month when I need it, seems it probably doesn't hurt!

i wear a pessary and i use it to put it back in. havent had a yeast issue since. and if i do get a little itchy i just use it as a lotion down there. clears it right up. why? i dont know. but it works great.

Yes!

For yeast infections, I find it easy to freeze a chunk and that way you can insert if far up without getting messy.
