May not be: The commercial product pre-seed has been found to be sperm friendly. Actually squibbs brand mineral oil and canola oil are friendly as lubricants.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Should I be concerned about dark brown vaginal discharge in the first trimester?

Dr. Andrew Silverman
Fertility Medicine 49 years experience
Yes: Dark brownish vaginal discharge in 1 trimester is usually related to the implantation of the baby's placenta into the wall of the uterus. As long as the HCG and Progesterone levels are ok, and you have a normal sonogram i wouldn't be concerned.
A 26-year-old member asked:

Can I have a vaginal birth if I have hepatitis c?

Yes: Not only is a vaginal birth a good idea for hepatitis C patients, but it is superior to c-section. After managing your pregnancy with your ob-gyn, and liver specialist, the time comes for delivery. As you might expect, avoiding scalpels and needles during c-section would avoid transmitting hepatitis C to others. Transmission of c to the baby is very rare during the pregnancy.

Get tested : Yeast infections & bacterial vaginosis are nonsexually transmitted vaginal infections which are common in pregnancy. If you are having vaginal discharge you should should be tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia & trichomoniasis. Some women will have excess vaginal discharge without having an infection from the hormonal changes of pregnancy. Many also leak small amounts of urine during pregnancy.

No.: You can get infection at the site of hair follicles, but you cannot get sores vaginally. You need to be seen by a doctor who can check your herpes viral titers.
