- what is the difference between yes water base and yesbaby? I have and use yes water base, love it! we are trying to have another child, does the water kill the sperm or something I don't get why there needs to be a special one to get pregnant
- We are more than happy to clarify the difference between our water based and Yes Baby products.
‘Yes water-based’ is designed to match the vaginal environment at a low (acid) pH, but when you ovulate, the fertile cervical mucus changes as you may be aware to be more alkaline, to enable sperm survival. At this time, you need a lubricant which supports this pH change and matches that of sperm. Which is when you would use the Yes Baby pack. It is because of this that we do not recommend Yes water-based during the ovulation period, although it is fine to use outside of the ovulation period.
We designed Yes Baby specifically to help people to conceive. It consists of two different packs of lubricant, the first pack is sperm friendly with raised pH, but with a second pack to bring the pH down to around 4.5 immediately after ovulation (and hopefully conception!) in order to optimise vaginal health. Most lubricants will kill sperm because they need an alkaline environment. Yes Baby sperm friendly lubricant also takes into account motility and osmality so the sperm can move freely and remain hydrated. The reason you need to use Yes Baby rather than just our water based product is because it does not produce the right PH balance.
Given the purity of its ingredients, Yes water-based is the least likely of available water-based lubricants to damage sperm, but its pH is acidic, to match the usual vaginal environment, so is not ideal.
We hope that this helps explains the difference that you were querying.
- I am 53 years of age and have been through the menopause i now suffer terrible from vaginal dryness which causes thrush from time to time. Sex is off the menu because of all these symptons as penetration is very painful and uncomfortable i think now i have got myself into a state that i am now afraid to have intercourse with my husband . Would the yes products help me and if so which one?
- Thank you for writing to us and for describing your situation. Postmenopausal dryness can be severe and debilitating, and as you say, is capable of causing thrush. I am sorry that you have suffered so much pain and attendant anxiety.
It is natural to flinch at the thought of penetration when it has previously been painful, and it is not surprising that you end up avoiding intercourse all together.
Happily, your story corresponds to many we have received from customers who had given up on the prospect of sex after menopause, but who discovered that Yes products successfully restored their ability to enjoy intimacy physically, by cushioning, moisturising and soothing intimate tissues, and emotionally, by releasing the fear of and resistance to sex that had built up post menopause.
Because it is so long since you have had intercourse, I would suggest that you start by using Yes water-based quite liberally for a week or two to begin to moisturise your intimate tissues, to condition and prepare them before penetrative sex. You are best placed to determine the degree of dryness, and to assess how long to allow for Yes water-based to rehydrate and restore comfort to your vulva/vagina. Yes in pre-filled applicators might be suitable for vaginal moisturising, and in a tube for external application.
When it comes to making love again, I suggest you use what we call the “Double glide technique” which ensures more comfortable penetration. For this, apply Yes oil-based to your partner’s penis, and water-based to yourself, internally and externally. This gives strong lubrication and enables longer lasting and more comfortable intercourse. When your body is fully comfortable and can relax into sexual activity, it can rediscover the ability to be aroused and even to climax. Your age should be no barrier to this.
We have had such moving and encouraging feedback from many women who have regained their sex lives after long periods of abstinence, by using Yes to rehydrate their intimate areas, and restore the comfort of sex, and hope you will be able to share their relief.
I hope this is helpful.
- Will it help with volvodynia please.
- Thank you for your question about relief from vulvodynia.
This condition has many causes and presentations, so it is not possible to offer a Yes/No answer to your question.
I can only say that many of our customers who have suffered from vulvodynia and painful sex, have had great results from using Yes. Here is the link if you wish to read some of their encouraging comments:
Dr David Nunns, a consultant specialist in vulvodynia, has this to say about Yes:
Dr David Nunns MD MRCOG – Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist at Nottingham City Hospital, Chairman of the Vulval Pain Society and council member of the British Society for the Study of Vulval Disease. (BSSVD)
“I frequently tell my patients to use lubrication during intercourse, and it is important to be wary of over the counter lubricants which can contain synthetic chemicals, capable of causing irritation and inflammation. I recommend YES certified organic dual purpose moisturiser and lubricant as it is guaranteed free from all synthetic chemicals and all known skin irritants. I find it helps most women either post –surgery or those with a painful sex condition such as vulvodynia. YES can provide a pure and simple solution to symptoms, and is often as effective as the medical interventions”.
Depending on the nature of your condition, there is every possibility that Yes would help ease your symptoms.
- I am very interested in buying your products, however i am confused as to what and how much i should buy. I suffered from vaginal dryness for ten years. I went through the menopause at 46 , i am now 56. Sine then intercourse has been extremely difficult and i have "cystistis"symptoms constantly. I have every test done possible and been prescribed all kinds of antibiotics but have had very little relief. I have been prescribed gnest cream but constanly forget to sue it. I want something to help with the dryness and the burnin. Do i need to use applicators every day? If so will i have to do that for ever for the benefits to continue? Are applicators needed to apply the water based products/oil based products? It's not very clear.Many thanks Anne
Thankyou for your questions about our products, and for describing how menopause has affected you.
Menopausal dryness can disturb the pH of the intimate environment, and it is not unusual for cystitis to develop at this time.
Yes water-based will certainly address the dryness, by re-hydrating the intimate mucosa, and by restoring the right pH balance in the vulva/vagina, may in turn improve the other symptoms.
As the atrophy is long established I would suggest using the product quite liberally to begin with (either through using the pre-filled applicators, or by finger application of the product from a larger container) but as your body responds, it should be possible to reduce the frequency of application to 5mls every few days.
Yes products will also reduce the burning you have been experiencing, and should mean that painfree sex is enabled once again.
If Yes water-based does not improve the burning, then I would recommend applying the oil-based, which is very emollient, cushioning and protective.
Applicators are not at all necessary, simply the preferred means of administering the intimate moisturiser high enough in the vagina for many of our customers.
Every woman is different, so we try to avoid being prescriptive, and suggest that you discover for yourself the best means of obtaining relief.
Unlike Orthogynest, which is hormonal, Yes products do not claim to reverse intimate dryness, so the condition will not be corrected, only ameliorated. By that token, the products will need to continue to be used for the benefits to be sustained.
I do hope that answers your questions, and am sorry the information on the website was not entirely clear for you.
- 75 years of age, my husband 3 years younger still sexually active, it has now become so painful for me to have intercourse I am having to say no, will your product help me?
Thank you for your enquiry. We do appreciate how intercourse can become painful when intimate dryness causes it to hurt. This can become so severe that women in a loving relationship can start to dread and then avoid sex altogether.
I am happy to advise you that very many of our customers, across the age range, have successfully overcome the problem of painful sex by using Yes lubricants. You may have read some of their stories http://www.yesyesyes.org/yestimonials-painful-sex which give great encouragement.
Both of our products would be suitable for restoring comfortable intimacy, and helping you to say yes again, instead of no.
Yes water-based behaves like a woman’s own lubrication, and comes as a soft colourless gel, either in tubes for finger application, or in pre-filled applicators. If you feel you need a more robust, protective, longer lasting lubricant, then we would recommend our oil-based product.
As your dryness has been so problematic, you would benefit from moisturising the intimate tissues with Yes on a regular basis, irrespective of the frequency of making love.
