I'm sure this question's been asked a million times but I can't find anything.
I've been getting riduclous amount of yeast infections (as in 4 in the past 5 months) and just realized the lube I was using for sex has sugar in it. Sex is always painful for me (grrr) so I can't go without lube.
Someone suggested using olive oil, but a quick google search seems to say it blocks pores and may lead to yeast infection (and may even lead to my boyfriend losing all his hair early...!). More serious sources only state that it should not be used because it might damage condoms, but I have an IUD so I'm not too concerned about that.
We've also tried cocounut oil. I didn't really like it, it didn't seem thick enough, but we might try it again.
So: what lube can I use to avoid yeast infections?
I would prefer not using commercial lube (especially since all the one's I've tried were irritating), but I'm open to any suggestions.
