Not checking your lube ingredients

If you have a new partner or have several partners, you might not think to ask what’s in the lube. They’re providing it, so you’re not checking it. Or maybe when you’re on the road and can’t access your preferred lubricant, you just buy whatever’s available at the gas station or pharmacy. But, not all lubes are made equally. Many contain parabens, dyes, fragrances, and glycerin, all of which can upset the vagina. Pay attention to how your vagina feels after certain lubes. If you notice itching or irritation, read the ingredients. You may be allergic to them. The best bet is to stick to all natural, water-based lube that doesn’t contain any of the problematic ingredients listed above.
