Heating pad

My husband and I have been trying for many many months to concive and no luck yet, he resently got mad at me for useing a heating pad during my period because its going to damage my eggs. I was wondering if this was true? I've always used a heating pad because the pain from my periods is horrible and the heat helps lesson it.

Everyone i've asked and no one could tell me but all the doctors i ever had always recomended it for cramps, why would they if it was going to damage anything?
