You can only get pregnant in hot tub if you are having unprotected sex in the hot tub. In that case, sure, it is possible. You can get pregnant by having unprotected sex in any environment. A lot of people believe that it is possible to get pregnant from being in a hot tub in which a man has ejaculated. Several reasons exist why you cannot get pregnant from stray sperm swimming around in a hot tub:
1. The water in hot tubs is too hot for sperm to survive. Sperm prefer temperatures slightly lower than the average body temperature of 98.6 F. Hot tub water temperatures are usually around 100 F to 104 F. This temperature is enough to kill most sperm.
2. Hot tub water is being subjected to massive pressure from the jets. The jets in a hot tub cause currents and bubbles that keep sperm from swimming properly. Sperm are swept up in the water an unable to enter a woman’s vagina.
3. Hot tubs contain chlorine or other chemicals to kill bacteria and algae. These chemicals also kill sperm. Sperm cannot survive in a chlorine solution.
The combination of these three factors ensures the safety of all women from pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease in the event that a man accidentally or purposely ejaculates into a hot tub.
It is also necessary to repeat that women can absolutely get pregnant in a hot tub should she be having unprotected sex in the hot tub. A common misconception is that women cannot get pregnant if they have sex in water. This is false. So, you must still take precautions if having sex in a hot tub and you have nothing to worry about if you are not having sex.
