I was just told by my doctor that coconut oil is a good and safe lubricant when ttc. I have pelvic pain issues so I need lubricant and unfortunately preseed becomes painful. Anyone heard of this or used it? Possible dumb question to add but when I think coconut oil I think of the cooking oil. I know you can also buy it in the natural foods store and it comes in a solid form that turns liquidy. I am wondering which should be used or if it even matters.
Some are more liquidy than others, I have refined for cooking and it is solid until placed in warm hands. The melting point is just above room temperature. My mother has 100% organic and it is more liquidy, kind of like lotion, but not straight liquid. I have heard of vegetable oil as a lubricant, and I hear it works well when TTC. However, I haven't heard of coconut oil for TTC. It makes sense, unless you're allergic to coconut, you shouldn't have any reactions. I would go for the more natural, it melts better than refined. And you can always use it to moisturize your hair.
Some stores do, health stores like gnc may. I bought mine at winco, I know in the pharmacy at Walmart they have it with the supplements. It may be in cooking sections of some stores, or just buy it online
I know that here in the UK you can buy it in health and beauty stores, in the same section as the moisturisers and creams. It comes in a tub and is solid inside, but when you rub it between your hands it melts into oil (its also great for skin and hair, as an overnight conditioner to be washed out the next day) Hope this helps
