Is it true that swimming with the opposite sex can make you pregnant?
Windowofworld.com – Lately, there is an issue that women who are swimming can get pregnant if there are men who ejaculate in the same pool, and not a few people who believe in the issue. So, can it really happen?
New pregnancy will occur when the sperm successfully fertilize an egg that has matured in the fallopian tube (fallopian tubes). Within 24 hours of being fertilized, the egg turns into a zygote or fetal candidate. The zygote will move slowly from the fallopian tube to the uterus, attach to the uterine wall, and eventually develop into a baby.
Swimming Together Does Not Make Pregnant
Issues circulating say that sperm can swim down the pool, then enter the vagina by penetrating the bathing suit, and cause pregnancy. This is not true.
Pregnancy is only possible if semen is released directly into the vagina or at least close to the vagina. After that, of the millions of sperm present in semen, only one sperm of good quality has the opportunity to fertilize an egg.
In addition, sperm and semen cannot be separated. Semen contains nutrients, hormones, enzymes, and minerals that sperm needs to be able to live and swim.
In a woman’s body, semen and sperm can survive in a single unit, so sperm can survive for about 5 days. More than that, the source of nutrients in semen will be exhausted and sperm can not survive.
On dry surfaces, such as clothing or bedding, sperm will die when the semen has dried. Meanwhile, when sperm is ejaculated in water, for example in a bathtub or swimming pool, sperm and sperm nutrition sources will be mixed with pool water. This will make sperm can not swim far and can not survive long.
After all, swimwear is also not easily penetrated by sperm. Plus, almost all swimming pool water contains chlorine which makes sperm die faster due to chemical exposure.
So, swimming in one pool with men who are ejaculating can not cause pregnancy, yes. You do not need to be afraid, unless you and he do have sexual relations in the pool. That can cause pregnancy because of ejaculation directly into the vagina.
Even so, that does not mean ejaculation in the pool is common. Apart from making dirty, of course ejaculation in public places is inappropriate and could have legal consequences.
Actually, it’s not pregnancy that you need to worry about when swimming in public swimming pools, but the risk of other health problems, such as ear infections, diarrhea if accidentally swallowing pool water, hair lice, or skin irritation due to chemicals in swimming pool water.
If you experience health problems after swimming in public places, you should consult a doctor so that you can be given the right treatment, yes.
