Hot baths and TTC

I have heard that taking baths that are too hot can cause fertility in both the man and the woman. Does anybody know if this is true?

  • I am not sure about women, but men yes. Especially if men like the water really hot.

  • I have only heard rumors for women, but for men DEFINATELY

    Dh's sperm count trippled and morphlology went from 2 to 6 percent when he stopped taking baths and did only warm (not hot) showers.
