orgasm during TWW, interfere with implantation?? sorry if TMI
Sorry if TMI for some, but I was wondering if orgasm during the TWW will interfere with implantation?? I know, it sounds silly, but I keep reading conflicting answers about this. Most of the answers I've read have said to abstain from sex/orgasm during the TWW with IVF, but I haven't found any related to TTC naturally... Anyone know if the contractions from orgasm prevent implantation in any way? I feel so silly asking this, But I'm worried about it.
That's a really good question. I think it's not supposed to inhibit implantation but that might be old thinking. Maybe there is newer information now. I hope someone knows the answer to this question. Although I'd die if I had to abstain during the whole 2ww! :-)
Ok, I've been holding off on sharing this, but the three times I have gotten pregnant, I had an orgasm just before penetration. I also read that the secretions (sorry) helps the swimmers, too. Anyway, as long as someone else brought up orgasms, I found my "in" to share this. Also, I know that having sex or orgasms during the two week wait will NOT interfere, although I don't know if IVF is different, but I wouldn't think so. Stomach crunches at the gym doesn't need to be stopped during the two week wait either. At least this is what a fertility doctor told me.
That is very reassuring to me! Thank you for posting. I would like to think that orgasms would not interfere with implantation, but I know how some of us fear even the slightest little sneeze! When I read that abstaining from it after IVF, it got me wondering if there was a reason for this and if it pertains to TTC naturally. I would also like to think that our bodies would not let us orgasm if it were going to hinder implantation in any way.
Hello AliceW! Yes, I wasn't sure if I should even post it at first, but then figured why not. There has to be someone else out there that is wondering the same thing! Glad I'm not the only one! I guess we'll wait and see!
