Water Based Lube
Adequate lubrication can make any sexual experience more comfortable and satisfying for both parties. Unfortunately, the amount of lubrication a woman naturally produces may be reduced due to medications, stress or changes in estrogen level after menopause. That doesn't mean you can't enjoy satisfying sex. Walgreens offers a large selection of water based lubes. These products provide lubricating moisture to enhance intercourse. You can also use them as a moisturizer to ease vaginal dryness. Doctors often recommend vaginal moisturizers and lubricant products for women who don't produce enough lubrication or who prefer extra lubrication.
Personal Lubricant Gels
With personal lubricant gels, you're in control. Keep a bottle or tube handy in preparation for sex or use it to ease vaginal dryness.

Choose from water based lubricants with a thick gel texture that's quick and easy to apply and easily stays in place.
Glycerin Free Lubricants

Some people like the feel of warming lubricants which can heighten sensations and provide a tingling feeling. Warming lubricants are formulated to provide gentle heat upon contact and throughout the sexual experience.
Also available are natural lubricants. These lubricants are typically formulated with plant-based and herbal ingredients, some of which may be certified organic.

Are Water Based Lubes Safe to Use with Condoms?
Many water based lubricants, but not all, are compatible with condoms. Plus, not all lubricants are safe for use with all types of condoms. For example, some lubricants aren't safe with latex condoms. Using some lubricants with condoms made of latex can damage the fabric of the condom and make it less protective. If you plan on using a lubricant with a condom, read the label carefully to ensure it's safe with the condom you're using. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or health care provider.
