Since I have a history of UTIs caused by (rough) sex, my doctor suggested always using a lubricant while having sex. The truth is that since we started using lubricant (Duo or DUREX most of the time), our sex life has improved dramatically and I haven't had any UTIs.
Unfortunately, I came across an article that wrote that lubricants "kill" sperm and hinter conception.
I am really worried now.
My doctor says that this is about lubricants that contain spermicides. According to the labels, neither Duo nor Durex lubs contain spermicides.
What should i do?
Should I opt for no lubricant and risk getting UTIs or should i stick to my lubricants and risk not having a baby?
