For about the past 2 years, I've suffered from very frequent urinary tract infections. I take a cranberry supplement everyday, but sometimes that doesn't quite cut it. I've noticed that I'm more likely to get them after sex (we use a water-based lube).
I bought a bottle of almond oil today to replace the water-based lube we usually use (I tried it out on him; it was definitely an upgrade from Astroglide). My question is: Will the almond oil eliminate/be less likely to give me UTIs?
Thanks for your time :)
Unfortunately nearly all water based lubes are full of chemicals and that might be causing your problem. In case you don't know, you can never go from the anus to the vagina with a finger, toy or penis. That's a UTI for sure. Any natural organic oil will be welcomed by our sex organs especially for manual sex and masturbation. However, if you are using condoms, you will need to use a water based lube.
Oil will gradually break down latex. Astroglide is at the bottom of my list for lubes. If you must use water based I suggest Sliquid Organics made from all natural ingredients with added certified organic botanical extracts that's available from our website.
