Kindly guide that is the masturbation for a wife during sex can be a problem to get pregnant. We are trying from 6 months but no pregnancy occured yet?

Kindly guide that is the masturbation for a wife during sex can be a problem to get pregnant. We are trying from 6 months but no pregnancy occured yet?

Don't worry (yet): Masturbation for a woman will not affect becoming pregnant but a man masturbating often might lower his sperm count reducing the chance of pregnancy. It takes the average couple 6 months to become pregnant, meaning half the time it takes longer. Don't worry unless a year goes by without conceiving. If that happens see a doctor (your husband too)-also consider herbs like rhodiola and ashwagandha. ...Read more

Can someone get pregnant when someone masturbate on clean undies and cum on it. Then the clueless owner wore the undies. Is pregnancy possible?

Can someone get pregnant when someone masturbate on clean undies and cum on it. Then the clueless owner wore the undies. Is pregnancy possible?

Not How it Works: No. That is not how babies are made. Sperm do not survive on clothing, do not swim through clothes and do not swim on dry skin. Perhaps at seventeen, so you are fully empowered as a female who knows her own body, you can spend fifteen minutes today reviewing Ovulation and your fertile and how babies are made. ...Read more

I'm paranoid about making someone pregnant is it possible that if I masturbate and touch a door handle pregnancy could occur with a female who touched?

No: All you have to do is wash your hands afterwards. You would not get someone pregnant by touching the door handle but no one would want to touch it after you if you got semen all over it. Simply masturbate and then clean up after yourself as a courtesy to others. ...Read more

I m 28 year female. Trying to get pregnant from 5 months. Sometimes masturbate. Does masturbate reduces chances of pregnancy. One miscarriage in past?

No effect: That you care to masturbate is actually a GOOD THING, a proxy for active hormonal status, which is also a function of your ovarian function (good). Masturbation does not decrease your chance of pregnancy and has nothing to do with miscarriage. Best of luck. Take prenatal vitamins if you're trying to conceive. ...Read more

A doctor here said fresh ejaculation from masturbation on toilet seat could cause a pregnancy, is this true (does vulva ever touch seat)?

A doctor here said fresh ejaculation from masturbation on toilet seat could cause a pregnancy, is this true (does vulva ever touch seat)?

That would take some: Real doing!! The ejaculate would actually have to make it to the introitus (opening of the vagina) or into the vagina. Thus, casually sitting on a toilet seat would not do the trick. I would expect that most women's vulva do not touch the toilet seat - that would be pretty gross. ...Read more
