DH and i just started TTC. Silly question but we were both wondering.. after he finishes, are you supposed to lay there with the semen inside you for a certain amount of time before peeing? I usually go to the bathroom right after to prevent UTI’s which have been caused by not peeing after sex in the the past. So do I give it at least 5 mins first while laying down? Gah this seems like it should be common sense 🙂

Some sources say that you should lay down with a pillow under your hips after sex when TTC. Other studies call crappity-crap-crap on it.
I did sometimes, sometimes I didn’t. I still got pregnant.

I’m the queen of UTIs and was hesitant to keep the goods in. The longest I kept it in was 10 mins, then I would rush to the bathroom and pee then shower to make sure I was super clean. Luckily I didn’t get any extra UTIs from that.
Typically the “good stuff” will stay inside you and the stuff that comes out is just mess.

I also was hesitant about keeping the stuff inside since I’m prone to UTI’s. I would sit in bed for another 10 minutes after we were done & then went to the bathroom to get rid of it; never got a UTI. I got pregnant 2/2 cycles were TTC (MC the 1st)… I dont know if laying around helped but it certainly didn’t hurt.
