In brief: Possibly

Based on your stated age, the use of certain lubricants, such as oils, can disrupt the normal vaginal bacteria and permit abnormal bacterial growth causing bacterial vaginosis or atrophic vaginitis.
Water based lubricants or those also containing glycerine would be a better choice.
