  • I am not sure if this a serious question but: Your anatomy is such that the place where you urinate from is different than the place where you would conceive. Your urine would not interfere with the process, though if you are actively trying to conceive it is recommended that you immediately roll onto your back and put your legs in the air after intercourse so that the ejaculate has more time to make the journey necessary. Coughing, sneezing, or urinating and any combination should not affect anything. HTH.

  • What you are asking sounds like stress incontinence; if I am readind your question correctly. The bladder is under stress in moments of pressure from a sneeze or cough. You can google pelvic floor exercises called kegel exercises to strenghten those muscles to help or eliminate the stress incontinence issues.

  • UM YEAH- most of us on here do that from time to time- it is a result of your pelvic floor being looser due to having babies. Shouldn't affect conception.
