Hostile mucus
I have been trying to fall pregnant for 5 years, after seeing a specialist he discovered that the acidity in my cervix is killing off sperm. I was told to douche with bicarb of soda. If done to often is this dangerous, he has tested and it seems to be working. What are my chances?

I have not heard of this treatment so I cannot comment. If you are seeing a fertility expert, you could follow the advice. If not, I would suggest that you see one.
