True or False

Is it true that you should NOT have oral sex when you are trying to conceive? I was told that the saliva will kill the sperm.

  • Make your vaginal environment as sperm-friendly as possible. Avoid vaginal sprays and scented tampons (which can cause a pH imbalance in your vagina); artificial lubricants, vegetable oils, and glycerin (which can kill off sperm); saliva (also kills sperm); and douching (it alters the normal acidity of the vagina, can cause vaginal infections and/or pelvic inflammatory disease, and may wash away the cervical mucus that is needed to transport the sperm).

    * If you're monitoring your cervical mucus in an attempt to predict your most fertile days, do your checks before you shower, bathe, or swim. These activities can all affect the quantity and quality of your cervical mucus.

  • Saliva can harm or kill sperm.
    Better to avoid this while trying to conceive.
