In brief: Basically
The difference between spermicides and lubricants is whether or not they offer any contraception.
Spermicides prevent pregnancy; lubricants do not. If a couple uses spermicides alone (not using condoms or another method) correctly with intercourse, about 6% will become pregnant. So, best to combine with condoms if possible to increase effectiveness. Yes, spermicides do help with lub.
