Default Did we just make a big mistake?

Okay, so last night when DH and I had BMS, we used some KY and now I'm reading articles that using most big name lubricants out on the market are a big no-no for those TTC. When I did a Google search about it, I found contradicting information (some say it's just fine and others say it's not). Now I'm having a hard time putting my mind at ease because I feel like we just totally messed up our prime day to conceive this cycle.

After the chemical pregnancy I had in July, it's hard enough to convince myself that everything will work out this time. And now I think we may have done something wrong that will lower our chances. What do you ladies know and/or think?

BTW - If you haven't seen it yet, you gotta rent or buy "Baby Mama." It is a great movie!!

Wendysue, Honestly dont think it will harm your chances. You are very young and so is your DH so he prob has "super sperm" LOL that can swim right throught that KY. Dont worry bout it. And yes Baby Mama is hilarious.

I think most of them now are water based anyway. I think it's fine.

Like you say, some reports say it's sperm-safe, others not. I think you'll be fine, but if you don't get your
this month then maybe look at alternatives.

Good luck!
