Saliva hurts chances when TTC? adult content

Is this true or just a myth? When DH and I are "making a baby" sometimes he also wants to suck on my clitoris and give me oral stimulation will this hurt our chances of TTC?

  • If you are having problems getting pregnant it is one of the things doctors recommend not doing because the PH in most saliva is not compatible to sperm. DH and I managed to get 2 kids despite that though. It is different for every couple, but it certainly can decrease the number of healthy sperm that make it to the egg.

  • It MAY hurt your chances of conceiving because saliva is not particularly sperm-friendly lubrication. I can't remember if it's the Ph or the consistency that is a problem, but my doctor did make a point to mention it.
