    So here it is - does chlorine in swimming pools affect CM particularly around ovulation?

    I wouldn't have thought so. Millions of women go swimming throughout their cycle and get pregnant!

    Yes thought so, but read some info (from a few sites) that says it can affect the ph and maybe reduce the effectiveness of cm on the crucial days. Mind you if I read enough, I am sure there will be something on the Internet that says sex is bad for conception!!!!!! LOL

    I have heard that people can get pregnant in swimming pools/hot tubs so it might not even be an issue if you do dtd in the pool! Lol xxx

    So funny - Lou - I don't want us to get chucked out of the Health Club when we have only just joined!!!!!! You make a good point though, plenty of people have probably dtd in a swimming pool and conceived.

    jojo - what is cplus?

    One thing I do know though, is that hot tubs are really bad for men's fertility. The heat is really bad for their spermies. DH in health club right now - do you think he will listen to my warning and stay out of the hot tub? I would find it hard to stay out as I love the hot tub, but for us girls we are ok till we bet a bfp, then it not advisable.

    Can't believe I started this thread, not sure where you lovely ladies are going to take the conversation next.... xxx

    Hi Lou, oh please don't worry about going in around ovulation, avoidance is just suggested when women know they are pregnant. Think how many women would have had gone in one when they were unaware of their pregnancy.

    Health club hot tubs are usually very hot. Unlike a bath, they do not cool down. I have read that some couples, who have their own, turn them down a few degrees when trying for a baby. If you google men's fertility and hot tubs there is a lot of info. But oh no - please do not break that one to your DH today - it will just be one thing too many!!!!!! you can hatch a plan once you have read a bit more info xxxxx
