Does anyone know if it matters whether you take a bath or shower while ttc? I'm a bath lover. I take HOT baths. I just started wondering if that could be affecting our ability to conceive. What are your thoughts?

I have no clue how it is while TTC but I know when you are preg, they say it's like hard boiling an egg so I'm afraid to take a hot one when TTC. Good luck to you.

 I took HOT baths when I was pregnant with both my girls...it was the only back pain relief I got and they are perfectly fine lol...I think it depends on who you ask.......I dont see how it would affect your TTC journey...though Ive never researched to see...hmmmm google here I come...good question!! Good luck!!

I would say it's fine for you but probably not so good for hubby!

Hey,

I would stay away from baths while you are ovulating and BDing for that purpose because it really effects the Ph of your CM.  It would make the environment in there not good for the spermies.

The only caution I would have for during hte 2ww is infection.  I woudn't do it often, but certailny a few night to relax doesn't sound too bad :)

Good luck!

Good question!!  I've only heard no hot tubs when your pregnant or for men when your ttc.  I would like to know if you can take baths though!
