Sorry...... Just had to ask. What are you thoughts on orgasms during the 2ww? Of course many people get pregnant with or without them.....but, just wondered if anyone thought it would make implantation more difficult?

hi! i haven't been on here in a while but i see you have a bunch of people viewing your post but not commenting so i thought id help you out. I don't think orgasm during the 2ww will make a difference either way. from what i remember during ttc ds #1 we had sex during the 2ww and everything was fine. i dont think it will affect implantation. Good luck to you and babydust!

Ha ha. Thanks for your response. I figured people might be a little shy about answering this question. Was just curious what people thought:-) I can't remember for sure......but, I have probably conceived my children with and without orgasm;-) We have done my orgasm during O right after DH because I read that it could possibly pull sperm in. Makes sence. I think God created all this stuff for a reason:-)

I didnt orgasm when i got pregnant with my son, and didnt until well after our pregnancy was confirmed cuz for some silly reason i was scared to.

Anyhoo, now thinking about it if anythinng i believe it could make implantation easier, if the fertilized egg is in there maybe it needs to be shoved into the wall LOL. I believe an orgasm during the 2WW most certainly wont hurt anything or lessen the chances though.

I have read that orgasm increases energy and circulation to the uterus and ovaries thus promoting implantation. I have also found that the increase in progesterone after ovulation supposedly prevents uterine contractions all together. This would mean that only the vaginal muscles would contract during this time, therefore having little or no effect on implantation. See link below:

FYI--I think a lot of people come to this site and read stuff but never post. I also think people (I know I do), will read posts and ONLY reply if I have an answer. I think the topic of having an orgasm during the 2ww is something a lot of women know about. After 20 cycles of ttc'ing I have done so much research it borderlines on being pathetic/obsessed LOL.

I just wanted to touch on the topic of getting a lot of people reading but not replying. I really don't think it's personal. Shoot when I posted I was losing my baby I got 60 views but only 20 comments. I would think some of the views were from people checking back to see what others had to say and some women just didn't know what to say, or some women just never post.


Good luck FYI!!!

correction: I meant to say this topic probably isn't something that a lot of women know about.

Thanks for the replies. Was just curious what people thought. I have read that it's possible that it helps to orgasm right after DH does, to aide in pulling sperm in. Just a theory, I know. But, we usually try it once per cycle around O time. Also put the instead cup in right after, on the day before O :-) @ weemace........ This is off subject, but, I know you do a lot of studying as well as I do. Was wondering if you have heard of or know any women who have gotten pregnant with a thin uterine lining? Mine measured a 6 last November and have been taking raspberry leaves prior to O and have been taking a baby aspirin a day in the hopes of strengthening and thickening my lining.

Hey Lelo,

I had my lining checked when I was doing a bunch of testing. I can't remember the number but I know I was okay. I know 6 or better is okay though. Are you going to get it tested again to see if the raspberry leaves helped? I think the baby aspirin has most likely helped.

I watch Real Housewives. Do you? On the New Jersey one Jacqueline had a grown daughter but tried getting pregnant again only to have six miscarriages in a row. She added baby aspirin and started wearing a fertility bracelet and then successfully had a son. Although I have been told I have no issues, (no blood clotting disorders or lining issues for one), I have been thinking of implementing baby aspirin next time because I figure it couldn't hurt? Heck, I've even thought of getting that same bracelet. Maybe just my believing it will work, will work due to my very positive thinking? :)

I have used the Instead cup. I definitely think it is a great tool.

I have read that orgasm immediately after DH orgasms will help to pull more swimmers in. I have also read that your orgasm changes your pH slightly and will help to sway the sex a certain way. I can't remember which way an orgasm sways it. I just want a baby in general so haven't made a point of trying to sway one way or the other.

Good luck!

Thanks weemace. I have been told that 6 or better was preferred. But, that was coming from my tubal reversal doctor. The reason I worry about it is because 2 years ago I had a ballon ablation instead of a hysterectomy for hemorraging and anemia. I was miserable and very I'll. I wish I would never have done it. I was not thinking about more children at the time, and my tubes were tied. Now I am remarried and am with ( my first ) love from when I was 17. I feel we are soulmates and would Love to share the experience of having a child together with him. It is highly Not recommended to get pregnant after an ablation. It can be dangerous. However some women have uneventful pregnancies. My tubal reversal doctor insists that as long as the ablation didn't work completely, and I still have regular periods, then I am capable of getting pregnant. I am carrying on and on. But, just wanted to tell you my story. I have children.... Have had easy pregnancies and have never had a miscarriage. However if I get pregnant this time, all won't be as easy and there also is a higher risk of a tubal pregnancy. Thank you again for all your advice:-)

I must say this is a very interesting conversation
what I was going to say has been said already
which was in reference to orgasming during intercourse
It is true that if u orgasm after ur man does that u have a higher chance of conceiving I figured Id say something instead of stalking and lurking the page lol

Orgasms are ok. I also agree with doing it after the DH does his(although it's hard to wait sometimes..lol)! I've also read that the uterus continues to contract long after you're finished and it helps the sperm along so on that note...let's all get that wonderful relief that it gives you!!!!!! LOL..you ladies are great!! Tons Of Sticky Dust..

Oh yea,stay away from oral sex around O time.Saliva can create a hostile enviroment for sperm and kill them...

I heard that an orgasm will release sperm that are caught in the cervical crypts. I guess this is why they tell you to bd a few days before.from what i understand these are the sperm that fertalize the egg. ( meaning you would orgasm before O) But i dont believe that would harm anything to orgasm after O.

I always made sure to have them while in the fertile phase but then forbid them afterward until the second trimester. Crazy I know!!! BUT... in my forbidden time, wouldn't you know it... I had them in my sleep!! I figure it is my body's way of complaining of the lack. They are way more mild when "unintentional". I was always worried I'd knock them loose or something!! LOL!!!

I do know that for IVF, they have you on progesterone (which relaxes smooth muscles) and no sex until pregnancy is confirmed. So, in that respect, the thought that O's help with implantation is incorrect for the most part. The aid that they offer is during fertilization and pulling the sperm into the uterus/pulling the uterus down closer. As far as having a vaginal only orgasm... never heard of it. Even the unintentional ones involved my uterus.

Speaking of which... Anybody else out there that has them while sleeping??

Ok I am spoiled and usually i have an orgasm before my husband. :)
so would that make things harder? Or its fine just like if he were to orgasm first?
Thanks girls! I think this website is great that we can all chat and not feel embarressed to ask over the computer. :)
Take Care all, sparkly baby dust!

@corrina........... Yes, I have had them in my sleep before! Unfortunately it's rare. Guess I have them too often with DH to have them while sleeping as well. It was mostly during my single days on a dry run. Lol.
