KY Jelly and trying for a baby?
Hi Doc

This may be a stupid question, but can/does KY Jelly as a lubricant during intercourse hinder conception in any way or would it be better to leave it alone when we try?

Thanks in advance
Jay

It has been said that KY jelly hinders sperm movement to some extent. For most people it does not cause any problems. Only if you are struggling to fall pregnant should you consider avoiding it.
