I spoke with a customer service rep. from all three of these companies. Each of them assured me that their products do not have gluten in them.

Fougera Surgilube-gluten-free, sterile and water soluble

K-Y brand(all of their personal lubricants are gluten-free and safe with condoms)not sterile.

Elexa-Intimacy gel(gluten-free not to be used internally)Vibrating Ring-gluten-free, Cloths-gluten-free

Has anyone used any of these products with condoms?

I would love to hear from other people who have had a positive experience with any of these products.

Hi Tammy,

I myself have not had any problem with KY Touch Massage 2-in-1 Warming Body Massage & Personal Lubricant. The ingredients listed are:

Propylene glycol

Polyethylene glycol

Lactic acid

Hydroxypropylcellulose

I can't comment on whether it is okay to use with a condom. After the birth of my twins, I made sure I was sliced, diced, sautered, burned, tied and anything else they could think of to make sure I wasn't going to have triplets the next time! So obviously, no need for condoms.

Hope this helps.

Karen

I used to use KY. Neither my husband and I were a big fan of it. I much prefer 'Elbow Grease'. Silly name, but good stuff. Astroglide is another popular brand. The best advice I have is to get samples of a number of kinds and find which you like best.

Water based = ok to use with condoms

oil/petroleum based = not ok to use with condoms

Hope that helps! I'd wish you luck, but that seems a little too personal ;)

    • Hi, Ok good advice and I am sincere when I say how much I appreciate a lot of the responses, advice and encouragement that have been posted here. I'm not sure what a nutrionist is but a dietician (here in the U.K.) is a heavily regulated medical profession and my dietician is based most of her week in a hospital where doctors and MD's as they are known refer patients to her for help. She works every day with celiacs, dh sufferers and people with crohns, ibs etc and seeing my skin, listened to what I was saying (particularly about how my redness and blisters resolved on a gluten free (though not wheat free) diet for several years, and sent a report to my doctor/MD requesting a battery of tests - tests that can indicate dh, celiac and associated complications. I also have a friend with a wheat allergy and two with celiac (all diagnosed) and they are encouraging me to go ahead with getting these particular tests. So that's great but reading the above quote that suggests that situations like sharing an oven used to cook gluten-containing pizza, should not cause a gluten reaction. I thought, my god what's the point of going through these tests if my recent reactions aren't actually to do with gluten. Although my dietician is concerned about possible dh and has been through years of medical school, I also really trust the advice of an advanced member on this site and if they think oven-sharing shouldn't cause any gluten reaction, what hope do I have with an MD? It has taken me years to pluck up the confidence to ask for any medical help because I feared that sort of response along with a focus on psychological issues and hormones etc early on in the thread (even though, I only started feeling depressed since yesterday). Actually, I'm a mental health nurse so it's good to see people are alert to these issues but I am also pretty familiar with depression and I know that many people with physical health problems are fobbed off by doctors with talk of depression, stress, and hormones. I'm sorry that I took the (above) quote to heart and I know that I allowed that to colour my perception of the whole thread, which has been helpful in many ways. Best wishes to you all, even those I didn't agree with! Rhian 
    • I thought maybe doing a trial period to see if he reacts positively to being gluten free and then adding it back to see if symptoms come back would maybe be helpful to the doctor? But I guess that's true, it might skew things regarding any future tests that might be warranted. 
    • If you haven't had her tested yet please do not go gluten free. Get the celiac testing first as if she does feel better gluten free when she has to go back on gluten for testing she may have much worse symptoms.  There will also be a higher risk of false negatives.
    • I did not mean to imply that you should put him on a gluten free diet.    If you suspect a problem with gluten, please get an opinion from a GI who is celiac savvy.  All celiac testing requires a patient to be consuming gluten.  The slightly equivocal TTG?  That warrants a gene test at the very least.   http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf
