So, BDing has it's downfalls...

With every positive comes a negative. We've been trying to BD rather frequently in effort to increase the odds. We'll, too much of a "good thing" must have its drawbacks from time to time. Last Thursday afternoon I could tell something was different, but didn't think much of it. Then, that evening, a full blown UTI (urinary tract infection). A little TMI, I know, but hey, it is what it is. Couldn't get into the doctor until Friday afternoon, so I had to tough it out until then. It took a full dose of medication to get rid of that stupid thing.

I did learn several ways to avoid getting a UTI and they are:
  • Wash both male and female "parts" before BDing
  • Urinate as soon as possible after BDing to wash out any bacteria that might have worked its way in
  • Do not use baby oil as a lubricant. I read this was a TTC safe lube like PreSeed (read: sperm friendly), but b/c of the UTI, it's not ideal.
So, there you go. Fun stuff, huh. :)
