So I’ve been lurking around for a few weeks and make a few posts and comments. My dh and I aren’t preventing, I’d say we’re old fashioned trying lol. No charting or temping or planned BDing. Just total disreguard for any method of prevention.
But before we always used a rather old fashioned method to prevent…the good old pull out method and much to my suprise it worked for us. I think we just got lucky.
Anyway, so clearly we aren’t doing that anymore and ever since he started…well leaving it in, (sorry) I am a 1000times more emotional. Even when AF is no where near. I can tear up about any little thing not major waterworks or anything, but good grief. I am not normally like that if I am I know AF is on her way that’s the only time.
So I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience when they started trying?
Sorry for such a weird question

Were you on hormonal birth control before? I would suspect that’s the culprit far above semen making you emotional. I’ve never heard of anything like that before and can’t think of any comprehensible reason how a testosterone-heavy substance sitting in your nethers would make you more prone to pre- and post-menstrual-like emotional turbulence.

I was never emotional when i started TTC and i am still not, but can you actually be preggos? maybe that could be the reason you are so emotional….or just the fact that he is releasing in you now makes you kinda self concious? IDK hunny, i do hope you feel better. Have fun TTC and best wishes:)

@Peacockfeather: No I haven’t been on BC in almost 3 years. So that’s not it, and I know it doesn’t really make any logical sense but it is literally the only thing that is different now.
@MrsR4ever: I doubt I could be yet, first day of last visit from AF was only a few weeks ago, and this was going on before and after that so, yeah. Weird I know!
Thanks for the input

I would think that it has more to do with the fact that you could be “creating life” in that instance, its pretty heavy and exciting stuff and could make you more emotional. just a thought good luck!!

I agree that it’s more of a “I could actually be getting pregnant” emotional reaction. You’re not just having sex for fun…you could be making a baby and that adds a whole new level of emotion. I got over it pretty quickly hahaha. After 3 cycles I’m pretty “I probably won’t get pregnant, so whatever.”

It’s possible that you’re pretty sensitive to your hormones…You’re getting trace amounts of his testosterone with his semen, and even saliva when you’re kissing. It’s enough where studies have been able to demonstrate the difference! So it very well could be his “essence” thats changing your mood a little bit 🙂

@ames12708: It’s really hard for me to say since I never had sex before getting married and we’ve never used any sort of prevention at all, but I would get all weird and teary/emotional for up to 24 hours after sex for the first couple of months. I kind of attributed it to losing my virginity and finally being married, but maybe it was his “essense”. It went along with my happy “I just had sex and it was the most intimate thing I have ever experienced” high that I’d have after sex. I still get the high but not the emotional roller coaster.
