Hello.... basically..Is right to lie down after DD for 15mins? I can find articles that either say yes or no. I’ve been told by people it works for them...even been told don’t go to the toilet shortly after. Is there just too many myths and no right or wrong way to approach TTC?

It can't hurt but the force at which semen comes out means that some of it will swim straight into your cervix immediately (especially if deep penetration) and I've read that only 5% of semen contains sperm so most of what runs out of you will not be the sperm anyway.

I think it gets to where it needs to go pretty quickly. I personally just make the most of the lie down after 'just incase' haha.

I lie for a bit longer than I normally would post sex, sometimes with a pillow under my butt, but I always pee after otherwise I'm prone to UTIs haha #TMI
