Are there side effects of vaginal lubricants?

In brief: Depends

Most over the counter lubricants are water based, and normally have minimal to no side effects.
Of course, everybody's body is different, and you may experience some side effects such as itching, redness, or irritation. These are very rare. Of course, if you use more exotic lubricants (oil, silicone, or 'warming'), there may be more side effects.
