Can you take a bath on ovulation or implantation day or can it mess anything up if you do get pregnant?
Actually there was a female gynecologist years ago that said
that women should shower instead of bathing and they would get less
urinary tract infections. Often when one has a bath the water is
very warm and even the very bath bubbles we use are not always good
for you. The tissues inside of vagina are extremely fragile. I was
in my mid-20s then and had several urinary tract infections so I
read the gynecologist's article and gave it a shot for 3 months.
She was right! To this day I take showers.
If you are have your period then it's best not to have a bath
unless you have severe cramping. Sometimes that's the only relief
some women have. Take showers!
I hate it when people with a tiny bit of medical knowledge try to
give advice as if they know more than they do. Occasionally
children will get Urinary Tract Infections from taking "Bubble
Baths" but not adults. There is no harm in taking a bath while
ovulating or any other time. Urinary Tract Infections in women can
be caused by wiping after urinating from back to front and
contaminating the vagina with fecal material. More frequently UTI's
are caused by the fact that women have a very short urethra
compared to men. Consequently, the act of sex can push small
amounts of bacteria into the urethra and cause a UTI.Urinating
after sex can avoid this by "flushing out" the urethra and any
bacteria they may have inadvertently been introduced into the
urethra via sex. Severe cramps can be relieved with Advil or other
Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Meds, and can often be eliminated
completely by starting Birth Control Pills.
