    Does anyone know if taking a shower after you bd

    Affect anything? Dh and I are ttc, and usually I will wait until the next day to take a shower, but I hate it. I feel all gross and that sex smell, all of you know what I mean. I was curious if I wait like 2 hrs after we BD if it will affect anything.

    Hi - i actually raise my legs in the air for 1/2 hour or so and then lie still for a further 1/2 hour, depending on my mood i either wait for the morning or take a shower after 1 hour, the doctors havent told me it could prevent the ttc process so i guess it would be ok.

    Good luck

    RAISING your legs UP HIGH for about 20 minutes is enough. I think; thats how i got pregnant.

    I really doubt taking a shower would effect conceiving rates ... by 20 minutes all of the sperms would have already go into the body and absorbed.

    Guess I was doing this ALL wrong...no wonder why I am not pg. My dh and I bd in the shower a lot! We take a shower together in the morning everyday and it just seemed easier for us with our schedules. Not only do I bd in the shower, I am also standing up...guess we are going to have to change things up a bit.
