    Right. . . I've heard that saliva kills sperm.

    So if you and your partner have oral sex before full sex, does this lessen your chances of getting pregnant?

    I feel like we're doing everything wrong!

    tbh this theory doesnt wash with me.

    If you and your partner have adopted a good diet, cut down on drinking and stopped smoking (and all the other things suggested while ttc) then i personally would think that the ph of your saliva would be at a suitable level.

    On the BBC3 programme 'Make me a Baby' a while back the doctor on there said the same thing. Although I still got PG twice b4 and never even thought about that.

    Well I'm pretty sure it DOES kill sperm but surely most people do this before they have sex?! Otherwise no one would get pregnant. . . xx

    I would think its one of those things that could possibly lessen your chances of getting pregnant...

    But at the same time they say don't drink whilst ttc and alot of ppl have gotten preggo whilst tipsy so who knows...

    Its not going to stop you concieving just something that might lessen your chances slightly, I think as someone said on the lubrication thread it is more about how long your sperm last then killing them straight away and total scuppering your chances, its just another thing where if you dont do it it may up your chances very slightly but isnt crucial!
