Okay, so, I’ve seen mad tips advocating the use of coconut oil as lube. Honestly, I would not suggest that at all.
For starters, coconut oil breaks down condoms. Let’s be real, babes, if you have multiple partners, or your partner has multiple partners, you should be using condoms. STIs and STDs are real.
Second, coconut oil is a comedogenic oil which means it tends to clog pores and cause blackheads. This is fine when you use it on your body, but sensitive areas like your face or vagina aren’t places you want clogged pores. Clogged pores on your vagina can cause bumps and ingrown hairs.
Third, coconut oil is antibacterial. That’s excellent for cleaning cuts and burns, but not to vaginal health. Your vagina is self cleaning and using anything antibacterial in, on, or around it will disrupt the good bacteria there. This means yeast infections galore, and who wants that?
As with all my tips, this is just personal opinion and advice. If it works for you, there’s no need to change. But if you’ve just added coconut oil to your kitty’s routine and you’re finding some things are a bit weird, it’s probably not for you.
Your vagina, the actual internal organ, is totally self cleaning. It can do all it's own maintenance. The only time you should be adding something to it's environment is when a doctor diagnoses an infection and prescribes medication. Using coconut oil on the mons pubis, where pubic hair grows, periodically to soothe razor burn is fine if you don’t over do it, but putting coconut oil on the lips, labia, or inside is inadvisable.
Coconut oil can dry out your vagina causing wounds in there. That will take ages to heal and leave scars inside. Don't be dumb and use that shit down there
