Brief Answer:
Can use

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Vagina is dry in post ovulation phase and in immediate post menstrual phase.
So, there is nothing to worry.
You can use lubricant or saliva, however it is better to avoid them, as these slightly reduce the chances of conception.
Preovulatory and ovulation makes vagina lubricant, so the chances of pregnancy are high in this phase.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
