    Can going to the toilet soon after sex affect you getting pregnant?

    Just a question - could going to the toilet soon after sex affect you getting pregnant? Only after sex I try n wait as long as possible before I go to the toilet as I seem to need to go soon after! Sorry to be too much info! I don't know what to do about it cos if I start walking around n don't go then of course it gets a little messy soon after sex. Also does it really matter in what positions you make love in, in order to get pregnant? I've heard that wiv a man on top is better n man from behind is better but does it matter if a woman is on top etc? Stupid I know!

    Peeing doesn't affect your chances whatsoever, It wont flush sperm out at all.

    Apparantly It helps if you orgasm as this somehow lets the sperm in

    And no its not a myth
    "It's difficult to believe in yourself because the idea of self is an artificial construction. You are, in fact, part of the glorious one-ness of the universe. Everything beautiful in the world is within you. No-one really feels self-confident deep down because it's an artifical idea. Liberate yourself from that idea that people are watching you”

    Getting an orgasm

    Silly question but when you get an orgasm does it have to be during sex or can it be soon after?

    Thats not true.

    for concieving your best chance is if you try and keep the sperm inside and as close to the cervix as possible. Missionary is probably best, or from behind as this puts the sperm as high up as possible. If you go on top, it means the sperm usually comes out almost straight away afterwards due to gravity.
    Its best to lie down for at least 20 mins afterwards, preferably with your knees slightly raised.
    If you go to the toilet immediatly afterwards then some sperm will inevitably come out, and whilst this wont necessarily stop you getting pregnant, it obviously means there will be less sperm in the right place at the right time, so your chances will be lowered.

    Of course if youre trying NOT to get pregnant, then going to the loo afterwards isnt going to stop it happening, but if youre actively trying, then you need to give yourself maximum chance, and thats working out the times you ovulate, making sure you have sex on the few days leading up to ovulation, during, and for a few days after.

    preferably at the same time as the man, or afterwards, although you dont have to have an orgasm to get pregnant.

    when I got to the loo after sex loads of semen comes out of me.

    Also if you are trying to get pregnant then you should watch what other products (lubes and oils etc) that you use. I bought a bottle of a lube-style product yesterday which warned that whilst it wasn't a contraceptive and wasn't designed to kill sperm it could have that affect on some people and therefore you shouldn't use it whilst you are trying to get knocked up. But some lubes are fine, you just need to check.

    Of course, you are all assuming that by going to the toilet, that she is having a pee. Perhaps it is also worth explaining that she will NEVER get preganant via backdoor penetration ...

    Not really. But we do assume she sits on the toilet. The semen would exit her body if she sat on the loo for a shit too.

    semen will "come out" whether she sits on the loo or not. semen always comes out after sex. taking a piss afterwards i would not think of as a good method of contraception at all... bearing in mind it takes only 1 sperm to fertalize an egg...
    Good judgement comes from experience.
    Experience comes from bad judgement.

    semen actually doesnt come out in great quantity afterwards if you lie down. The only semen that will come out is the stuff thats stuck to his penis.
    it may only ultimately take one sperm, but men with a low sperm count have more trouble impregnanting women - its basic fact. If you put one single sperm in a vagina, then obviously theres a chance of pregnancy, but its fuck all.
    maximum sperm count = maximum chance of getting up the spout quicker.
    Were not talking about how to stop getting pregnant, were talking about maximising chances of getting pregnant quickly. Completely different.

    So basically don't go to the toilet after sex, just try n lie there for a while - semen does come out anyway whether or not I go to the toilet for some reason after sex it makes you need the toilet even if you have been before hand.

    N yes we are trying for a baby - I just wanted to know what the best ways n quickest ways of getting pregnant were n what's best to do n what not to do. It was only cos I need the toilet soon after sex I wondered if it affect my chances of getting pregnant by the sounds of it, it does affect the chances.

    Just wondering is it possible to have a period 15 days later in the same month to have a period? I did come off the pill Microgynon 30 1st May n started a period on the 5th may n finished 7th or 8th May. I then started bleeding again on the 23rd May n finished on the 26th May but it wasn't much blood at all or like my normal periods - I wasn't given any warning as usually I get a headache or stomach ache before hand. I'm not sure when to expect my next period now as I thought it would be due some time next week but if the 23rd to 26th May was my period do I expect it later this month? I don't know what it is - if it was a period, implantation bleeding or a possible miscarriage (but I think it's a bit soon for it to be a pregnancy). I did have alot of symptoms which I mentioned to the doctor on the 22nd May, n all he said was your not pregnant are you? He said just wait n see what happens in the next few weeks - I'm okay now just tired so I'm guessing it was my period and the symptoms were probably cos I came off the pill. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this n can explain to me what it is. It's now the 10th June n still no period!

    you might be pregnant then. It wont hurt to do a test if your period is late.
    I would if it was me.

    I did do a preg test before Friday I think it was Thursday night n it was negative. So I guess It's wait n see if anything happens later in the month around 23rd to see if my period starts then. I'm just not sure what the bleeding was as I was expecting my period beginning of this month n then that happened on the 23rd to 26th May n now just not sure what's going on. I guess it's a waiting game!
    Thanks for all you advice, help n support I really appreciate it.
