do you think it would be easier to conceive if i did'nt clean up after sex?

i know it sounds silly but would it maybe be easier if i did'nt run straight for the toilet and grab baby wipes? Maybe if i would just lay there and let it stay in all night or something? Idk, i was just thinking about it.

  • Peeing before and after sex reduces your risk of UTI.. But lifting your pelvis after sex or having a pillow under you will keep the sperm in the back of the vagina to help increase your changes of becoming pregnant. So yeah, just lay there for a while after sex, then go pee..

  • Well I know i conceived my first son because I was too drunk to get up and clean-up (i know gross right). I had amazing sex and then just rolled over and went to sleep. Coceived my first baby out of wedlock. haha

  • Experts say to lay and cuddle for a while before running to the restroom. Otherwise (like others have pointed out already) it's counterproductive. Just enjoy some cuddle time with your huddy.

  • I've heard you "are" supposed to pee after and before. it cuts back your chances of a uti. but i don't know about conceiving.

  • No that would not help the sperm that would produce a child would already be making there way up. If anything wipe off after and put your legs in the air for a few to give the little guys a push.

  • Yes, it would help. You should lay with a pillow under your hips for about 20 minutes. Then, go pee to help ward off UTIs. The other thing you should do is wait atleast a day before having sex again. The more you have sex the fewer the number of sperm in the spunk.

    Good luck and quit running to go wipe off. Give those sperms a good 20 minute head start before you pee.
