    Maybe a silly question but u never know till u ask. But is it true that when uv had sex u must go for a pee because if u don't and u leave his swimmers inside u all night that u will end up with a infection Ect.. Not sure how true it is so thought I'd ask as that's why maybe iv not conceived yet because I pee after sex. Many thanks hope someone can answer my question X
    Bring in next month we are both sorted. With conceive plus lubrication and our coupled prenatals x[​IMG]

    Not a silly question Becky! It is recommended to pee after sex as during sex various different bacteria can find their way into your urethra and bladder and this is what can cause UTIs like cystitis.

    When TTC there is some evidence that remaining horizontal for 15-30 mins can aid the sperm it getting where they need to be. So I just stayed in bed for a while after sex and then got up to pee :D and I got my BFP a week ago and havent had any issues with UTIs!

    I never pee after sex, I wake up during the night to pee and I don't ever have had much uti's.. I tend to get them from not peeing enough or not being hydrated enough...

    I've never got up to pee after sex, never had uti and we've been ttc for a year and a half!

    I could' t get up straight after sex and risk losing any swimmers!

    I think some people are just more prone to them than others. I have to get up or I will get a UTI and they are so unbearable. I've just been trying to hold out a bit more now TTC.

    Sometimes I go sometimes I dont although more so now that Im pregnant.

    During ttc id give it 15 mins then go clean myself.

    I get thrush on and off so I tend to shine it up before bed and pee. Just incase.

    I was always warned to pee after sex to avoid UTIs so it will be strange not to get right up and go for a wee! Maybe I will try it see where I get

    Tbh I only go for a pee after sex if I'm busting to go. Usually I don't bother. I've only had a couple of UTI's in my life and they've been for other reasons
