Are any lubricants safe to use in pregnancy?

Err just that really blush. A Google search seems to imply that a water based one would be best but I am wondering if it is ok to use one at all?

We're just using durex aloe vera. Hasn't caused us any issues.

Yes a water based one should be fine. Some will say on the safe of the bottle that they are are for use during pregnancy. So maybe just read the small print if you're worried.

Water based is fine - I think others are too. If you were having an early scan the internal probe is lubricated with water based lube.

If they weren't safe they would need to put a warning on them.
