Do you think that Swimming can reduce my chances of preg?


Hi ladies,
I have been trying for 14 months now, and a couple of friends have mentionned that they didn't think that going to the swimming pool was such a good idea while TTC,...
They think that it might kill the swimmers from the night before...

What is your opinion?
Do you think that I should avoid goign to the swimming pool when I'm TTC?

thanks for your help

Marie

hi BUMP5-ZA,
on a completely unrelated subject
May I ask you how you make the signature of your message so cool, I cannot find how to show where I am in my cycle.
Thanks for your help
Marie

I swim a lot and have wondered this but surely the sperm will have swum up into places where the water can't get too by the next day?

hi tansey,
I hope so too, but they got me worried....
Maybe this is why it's taking so long...
How much do you swim?

I cant see them killing the sperm, i think they travel up already on there way to meet their date, so i dont think swimming would affect you TTC..

Maybe look on the internet and it might give you some ideas.

Thanks beauty,
I find it quite hard to find reliable info on the net about it,..
it all seems quite unscientific... so I'm not sure wether I should trust it or not... maybe someone has asked this to their doc before...

WHy - I see you have discovered your signature...

Because of my cycle being so long i type it in myself there are no tickers that go past 60 days .....but you can click on the link of mt other tickers and just choose the ttc ticker and then copy and paste the BB link into you signature

i just read an article by an M.D. that says it's ok to swim or bathe after bding when ttc, b/c water doesn't make it far enough inside to contact the cervix. plus, w/in minutes of release the sperm who are gonna make it, have already entered the os. then i read another article written by a obgyn nurse that said the opposite. chlorine is a sterilizing agent and will kill even microscopic living organisms, like sperm. so who knows? there's so much conflicting information out there, it's hard to distiguish fact from fiction.
