User avatar Hello
Durex is merely for lubrication purposes; not contraception so you are fine to use it while trying to conceive. Be patient because it can take up to a year for normal, sexually active, fertile couples to achieve pregnancy. Of course it can take less time or more but 85% will become pregnant during the year.

Best wishes.
