ASK THE DOCTOR - Artificial Lubricants

Is it safe to use artificial lubricants with condoms during penetrative sexual intercourse?
- Imran



Condoms are made of latex or polyurethane. Most of the available condoms are pre-lubricated. For additional lubrication, waterbased or siliconebased lubricants are safe to use with condoms; however, oil-based lubricants are not safe as they weaken the latex and can damage the condom making it unsafe. Strictly avoid using petroleum jelly, cooking oil, butter, baby oil or sun tan oil as lubricant with condom during penetrative sexual intercourse.
