IS SEX IN A POOL/TUB PREGNANCY-SAFE?

No, it’s not!

It is true that chemicals like chlorine, which are usually present in pools and tubs, could kill sperm and that sperm cannot survive in cold pool water.

But if a man ejaculates inside a woman’s vagina, with his penis practically sealing the vaginal opening, his sperm would have enough protection to survive and to start their journey toward the fallopian tubes.
