Can urinating after sex prevent pregnancy, myth or fact?
Monica Grover, DO, who is an obstetrician in New York, gave her opinion on this matter. According to him, the statement that peeing after sex lowers the chances of getting pregnant is just a myth.
“When sperm is ejaculated, it occurs with very high velocity and pressure, and is also highly concentrated in the average male. Therefore, despite the gravitational pull during urination, and the loss of some of the seminal fluid, the effect on sperm concentration in the duct the vagina is so small that it would not interfere with any chances of conception,” said Dr. Monica Grover, quoted from Verrywellfamily.
Urinating after sex can cause some of the seminal fluid to be wasted. However, this will not affect the sperm fluid that has entered the vagina.
So, if you often pee after sex and you don’t get pregnant, it doesn’t mean that this is what reduces your chances of getting pregnant.
It makes no sense according to the anatomical system of the body
Statements about peeing after sex can reduce the chances of getting pregnant, are also considered unreasonable according to medical science and the body’s anatomical system. This is because urine and sperm fluid are in 2 different places in the body.
“Your urine does not leave the body through the vagina. Your urine leaves the body through the urethra, which is a small hole just above the vaginal opening. Meanwhile, sperm after sex is in the vaginal canal and it never mixes with urine at all,” said Karla Robinson, MD, a family specialist.
Based on the opinions of these 2 expert doctors, it can be concluded that urinating after sex does not affect the mother’s chances of getting pregnant. However, did Mom and Dad know that peeing after sex actually has benefits?
