So sorry about the CP, better to be safe than sorry then.

Weird...Never even heard of that myth before. I can see where they are going with it though.

Yeah, I had a chemical but I *did* orgasm every time we babydanced so I think it's good to then, but I won't be in the TWW or in super early pregnancy until I feel safe about it for sure. Like I said, it may have nothing to do with it, but since I don't know why it happened, I just know I'll do it differently this TWW!

This sure is interesting! I had a chemical back in Jan 2011 and I'm a bit of a sex addict... So definitely would have orgasmed at least three times after O..

Will refrain from sex (or enjoying it at least ) until AF now!

MYTH.

Actually, I've looked into this pretty extensively, since DH gets grumpy about being cut off for two weeks. Apparently, the progesterone your body releases at ovulation and in your TWW works to prevent the uterine contractions that usually happen with an orgasm. So in theory, you should be safe to orgasm and any orgasms you have will be vaginal only, so it won't affect implantation or your bean. And orgasms increase blood flow to the uterus, which can help promote implantation.

And sex in the first few days of your TWW is supposed to be good for the egg. I've read in a genetics journal that exposure to semen is good for embryo development and increases the likelihood of embryo implantation and development.

That said, if you're going through IVF, you shouldn't orgasm after the IVF has been completed because there is no guarantee that you have ovulated at the time the IVF is done. Any orgasms could dislodge the bean because there may not be enough progesterone in your system to prevent the uterine contractions.


Hope that helps.
