A member asked:

Is it safe to use ky his and hers lubricant during pregnancy? the box says avoid use if pregnant or breastfeeding unless prescribed by doctor. i have preeclampsia and just want to be safe.

Avoid use: I would advise to avoid any of that use, so many medications/ supplements/ products might have effects that have not been substantiated by research yet, so it is safer to avoid use of these products

Lubricants: Lubricants such as KY jelly are safe for use in pregnancy. You need to clarify with your doctor what your treatment plan is for preeclampsia. This is a much bigger issue. Usually people are on bedrest, in the hospital or require delivery when they have preeclampsia. You probably are not supposed to be having sex if sick with this disease.

Package warning: The package warning should be taken at face value considering the fact that you are indeed pregnant. See if Astroglide gel carries the same warnings or not as an alternative.
