We have decided to start trying for our first baby. Ive been doing some reading and just want to know if the below can be clarified?

I have read a bit about ovulation and about cervical mucus during the more fertile times. I'm wondering if there still is a chance of conception when you are really dry? and what are the chances?

Also ive read that peeing straight after may lessen the chances of the sperm moving its way up the female, but others say that there is a natural gush that moves sperm up so peeing doesnt do anything
