Is using enema good before intercourse while trying to conceive?

Hello I wanted to know if enema is good before intercourse while I am trying to conceive. Me and my husband are trying for our second baby and its not coming easy so far. I have been trying the ovulation tests so find out the exact day of the ovulation and have had sex during the week every 36 hrs. Its not just happening and I am getting my periods every month. I wanted to know since I always do enema with water before intercourse, is that harming me or preventing me from getting pregnant. Please advice. Thanks.

Usually, market-enemas (vaginal douches) are not recommended while trying to conceive as that would interfere in the pH of the vagina, which would turn up destroying the spermatozoids (male reproductive cells) before they enter the ovaries to conceive.

If you are using just water as vaginal douches (with no added feminine wash or soap), it is ok; that would not interfere much. However, I usually, recommend patients not to do enemas before intercourse.

Next, stress is another important factor that could interfere with conceiving a baby.Therefore, try to use some simple relieve stress.

At the end, If you have already conceived one time, hopefully, you would do this time and others; just wait for the right time to come and do not surrender.

Hope it helped!
