Thinking about getting pregnant

My husband and I feel we want to start trying to have children. My question seems so silly, but I can't help but ask -

When sex is over with my hubby, should I wait for a period of time until I run to the bathroom to clean myself up? I often go to the bathroom right after he ejaculates so I can clean out the sperm. Does this make a difference when trying to get pregnant? Like, should I not be in such a hurry to clean out the sperm?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Thinking about getting pregnant

You kinda need that sperm to get pregnant. So yes definately don't rush to the bathroom, infact a lot of women will lie on their back with their bums elevated to help the little guys in the right direction. Women's bodies are designed with boobie traps along the way for sperm so you want to keep as many swimmers inside you to raise your chances that one will make it through to the egg. So when you're all done, put a pillow under your bum, lay back and relax for a while. If you stand up right away gravity will take course and a lot of sperm will leave your body.

Re: Thinking about getting pregnant

Those little guys are strong and all, but any help they can get is needed. I'm sure rushing to the bathroom wont really hurt, but it definatly wont help.

When my fiance and i started trying i had the same exact question. We figured it would probably be beneficial to not rush to the bathroom. 4 weeks later i was pregnant, so it worked for me.

We actually watched an entire movie once before i did anything else.
