Happy NYE! Hot tubs and TTC?

Happy NYE, I have to work tonight.....hope others have fun.

My DH and I got a brand new hot tub the month before he decided he wanted to TTC! :)

What are your thoughts on hot tubs and TTC? Any advice? Stay out completely? or two weeks before Ovulation? Doesn't matter?

    I've read that it takes 1-3 months to make sperm, so I don't think it would be safe to go in there for your DH. I've always heard to stay away from hot tubs while ttc.

    keep dh out until you are pg. hot tubs can be damaging to sperm production by heating up the testicles too much. As for you that is a little more debatable. A friend who went through ivf was told no hot tubs in the tww. They do take extra precaution for ivf but I think what's good for the goose is good for the gander. I would skip it if I were you. Have a great new year!

    I've also been told (by my friend who is a dr.) that women should avoid hot tubs when pregnant or be very sure the water isn't too hot.  You shouldn't let your body temperature rise too much when pregnant.

    We are in the same situation.  Got our hot tub at the end of the summer and have not really gotten to use it since we started TTC. 

    I say better safe than sorry and stay out.  It will be there later all the same!  Good luck!

    Yes, but it takes approximately 2-3 months for that sperm to mature
