what things can stop you ovulating/getting pregnant?
i have a very minor cold but was woundering if it could stop ovulation this month i read on here that cold and flu tables might affect ovulation i was woundering what other things could reduce the chances of ovulation and getting pregnant?
There are women with WAY more info than I have, but I didn't want to read n' run. I just watched a video on tips for getting pregnant the other day and it said that for women...mostly, we just need to get out of our own way and stop making the little mistakes that keep us from getting preggo.
They suggested temping and charting of course, which most of us know.
They also suggested NOT peeing immediately after sex, which i'll admit...I have a hard time with. My first instinct is to go pee...but they say that it CAN reduce your chances, as the sperm DO get flushed out somewhat. That said...i've known LOTS of women who've gotten pregnant even when peeing immediately after sex. The sperm don't take much time to get where they're going....
One thing that kind of blew my mind was that they said that a man who spends time in a whirlpool or jacuzzi tub can sterilize himself for up to THREE MONTHS because of the heat. Insane.
Mike LOVES hot baths and showers, and wears boxer-briefs instead of boxers, AND works on the computer with it in his lap. I can attest to the powers of the heat from a laptop as I have a permanent scar/burn on my leg from where the fan vents. I knew it was warm on my leg, but had no idea that it was actually burning me very slowly.
So now i'm paranoid about the temperature in his shorts.... LMAO.
Getting a cold can increase your chances too, especially when using an expectorant -- can cause you to create more mucus... just avoid medications that dries it up, because you don't want to be dry... help the sperm out
Other things that can cause ovulation to not happen is birth control (obviously), stress, certain medications, and just sometimes our bodies fail to do it...
