Pregnant using KY Jelly. Any effect on fetus?


I am 5th week pregnant as all pregnancy tests came positive two days ago after I missed periods. I was trying to conceive and we were mistakenly using KY Jelly. I just read that it is not a good lubricant as it kills sperms and damage DNA in sperms. However, I still got pregnant using KY jelly. Is it possible for KY jelly to damage DNA of the sperm that fertilized my egg and it affects development of my baby resulting in deformity or defect, either physically or mentally?

I apologize for my English as it is not my first language. However, I am very worried now. Can anyone please tell me if it is possible? Has anyone got pregnant using KY jelly and delivered healthy baby?

Thank you.


  • Hello,

    I'm wondering if you can tell me how things turned out for you? I just had the same experience as you and I'm very worried now. It would help to hear how things turned out. Thank you!
