So, I've been thinking about this for awhile now. I know that during the female orgasm, the uterus contracts. Of course we all know what happens during an earthquake so I've been wondering, could having a orgasm actually hinder or even prevent implantation from occurring?
So my questions are:
1. In your opinion, could an orgasm hinder or prevent implantation?
2. Why or why not?
For ladies who became pregnant:
3. Did you have orgasms after O the cycle you became pregnant?
4. How often?
I assuming the ladies that answer questions 3 and 4 did not have chemicals that cycle.
hmm, interesting. i've been wondering about this a little too, although from a slightly different perspective, since my little bean is well and truly implanted... but i am still too scared to have sex in case i knock him out of there!
i had sex with orgasms for 2 days after my OPK went positive, then haven't had sex since for fear of hurting bean!
I thought about the same thing around the time of O this cycle. So, DH and I DTD everyday around O time, but varied on getting an orgasm to be every other day. After O, we waited for about a week which I thought was ample time for fertilization and start of burrowing. And we got our first BFP at 10dpo.
Another thing we did was, after DTD I would either put one pillow under my bum while using the napkin to avoid any spilling or DH would put his leg under me to give me the support to keep my hips high. I would remain in that position for atleast 10-15 minutes. If I didnt feel like taking a shower right away, then I would just lie sideways on my right for another half an hour or so before getting up. I cant remember where I read this, but its said to lay on your right before the baby, and on your left afterwards!
This was our most researched and most confident cycle of trying in the last 18 months with first time use of clearblue fertility monitor, and I couldnt stop being thankful after I saw that second line! We never used any medication although my GP was going to refer us to Fertility clinic if we didnt make it that cycle. Turns out, our timing sucked, and with added stress I was also developing painful cysts that were messing up my cycles.
You mentioned about the uterus contracting; it doesnt just contract or expand, its more like a wave that goes over it which gives it a feel of contraction. This actually helps the egg burrow itself deeper into the lining. However, if theres already something wrong and the egg isnt able to burrow into the lining properly (due to thick uterus lining, or burrowing in some fibroid that is not strongly held with the uterus etc) then yes, the egg will detach itself and possibly try to either attach again (You may experience spotting due to this) or leave the system with your period.
Truly hope this helps.. and lots of to you!
Best of luck... Let me know if you have any other questions... I'd be glad to help.
I read that if you orgasmed it helped the sperm go into the uterus as the contractions go in that direction. So I made sure I had a pillow under me and then finished me off (sorry if tmi) and waited 30 minutes before getting up. Worked for me!! that and pre seed. Didn't really do it much after ovulation so can't say whether that would have made much difference. In fact didn't orgasm at all after O day.
