Hot Springs and effect on Sperm (IUI)

Hi

We have our first IUI coming up next cycle. Our problem is lowish count and only 11% motility.

We have booked a weekend away at a Hot Springs resort (water at 43oC) This is a few days before the IUI. Would you advise that we give the Hot springs a miss or wont it effect things too much?

Thank You.

Dear MvW

An increase in the temperature around the testicular area, such as may be produced at hot springs and saunas or very hot baths, certainly has an effect on sperm production. My recommendation is to rather miss out on the hot springs, as it will probably have an effect.
