    One suggestion I have is to buy the smallest size available so there is less chance of its being contaminated before it's all used.

        I assumed that you were referring to lubricant to use to make sex easier. The reason I suggest purchasing the small container is that if it becomes contaminated, such as when you apply it, you could end up with a UTI.

          How would it become contaminated? Is it not just like a tube where u squirt it on your finger and then use it? Sorry, ive never bought any before so i dont know much about it.

            The best thing: organic coconut oil. Just use mattress cover (I have against incontinence, though I never leak, just in case), as it is really oily. Mont of the pthers contain propylene clycol which will make you worse. But there are some natural ones as well, sorry I am not from US and can not help. But coconut is great!

                I use coconut oil. Using a clean spoon, I take about 1 teaspoonful and put that in a glass and microwave it until it's liquid. That keeps the container from getting fingers into it.

                It's soothing. Some people use it just for that, for it's soothing properties. For sex....it's the best sex lube I've found. It's organic. I don't think it's going to give you an UTI.

                It smells great. [It's good for making pancakes too.]

                When IC-ers have sex we need extra cleanliness. Both of you need to be clean, hands, bottoms, everything. You don't want the e-coli from your anus to get into your urethra, or any other germs. Cleaning before sex will help keep the UTI's down to a minimum. Urinate after sex just in case some little bug got in there. Pee it out before it gets to growing.

                People with Pelvic Floor issues are sometimes BETTER after sex because it causes those muscle to work out a bit and then relax.

                IC people can have pain after sex because the bladder is getting shoved around but mainly because the urethra is located between the clitoris and the vagina in females. So it's right there where a lot of friction is occurring. That's why you can have pain, after your done, that same day or the next day.

                Some of us have to choose which day to have sex if we know we're going to have pain that day or the next it's probably not a good idea right before you have big plans to be somewhere. We're choosy about the day so that if I need bed rest the next day I'll be able to do that.
