Can Sex After Ovulation Affect The Pregnancy Process?
Hello, I want to ask, my wife and I planned for pregnancy early, when I began to enter the fertile period, I had sex every 2 days with my wife, then after the fertile period passed, we didn’t have sex for 3 days, after that we went back to having sex as usual, it’s 7-10 days before my wife’s menstrual period. My wife already feels signs of menstruation, but she still doesn’t feel symptoms of menstruation, and we continue to have sex every 2 days, then about 4 days before the menstrual schedule my wife feels pain in the stomach , we do not know whether it is a symptom of menses or symptoms of pregnancy. Then when the menses schedule turns out there are patches that come out but very little, is that menses? Is when we have sex after fertility can affect the process of fertilization ,? Can strong shocks prevent the conception or pregnancy? That’s my question doc. Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically pregnancy will occur if sexual intercourse is carried out in the fertile period up to 1 day (24 hours) after ovulation (release of eggs from the egg bladder). After 24 hours after ovulation, the egg / ovum is usually going to die and cannot be fertilized again.
If in the range of time your wife should menstruate only a spot of blood, you should recommend your wife to do a pregnancy check, because it is possible that the spotting of blood is not menstruation but implantation bleeding (bleeding that occurs due to fetal attachment to the uterus). Perform a pregnancy check using the first urine in the morning so that the results obtained are more accurate, and make sure your wife reads how to use the device before using it and follows the method of use carefully. If the pregnancy test results are positive, then it is very likely that your wife is pregnant. Perform an examination to the obstetrician to confirm. If the results are negative, re-check 3-7 days later to confirm the results. If the results remain negative, then your wife is not pregnant and maybe the bleeding that came out is indeed menstrual bleeding.
If you are worried that sexual intercourse that you do after the fertile period will affect your wife's pregnancy, then you do not need to worry too much. Sexual intercourse after conception or strong shock will not cause a miscarriage. Make sure your wife consumes pregnancy vitamins that contain folic acid when you are planning a pregnancy at this time.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
