Q: Can an orgasm AFTER ovulation impact implantation?

I've read that an orgasm when trying to conceive is actually beneficial, as the contractions pull sperm upward. I've never read anything advising against sex after ovulation, but wondered if orgasmic contractions would prevent a fertilized egg from implanting. Please reply only if you're certain of your answer based on having a medical background or from reading about conception. Thanks!

No, absolutely not! I had lots of sex and my fair share of orgasms prior to my first positive pregnancy test. In fact, one of my very first symptoms that I knew something was different was the cramping that started AFTER orgasm. The further along I got, the cramping would start BEFORE orgasm and increase as I got closer to orgasm. The doctors (I had two) said this was normal.

Refraining from sex is only (and rarely) advised in very delicate situations when attempting to get pregnant through insemination.

But in general: no, sex and specifically orgasms don't prevent a fertilized egg from implanting. If that were the case, mankind would have gone extinct millions of years ago. Our ancestors did not succeed in populating the whole earth by refraining from sex.
