Best positions to get pregnant

best position to get pregnant
 

There are loads of old wives’ tales about how to get pregnant, from positions to times of day to have sex to what to eat. But is there any truth in the position theory? Luckily, you won’t need to be a contortionist to make use of the best benefits to conception that Mother Nature has to offer.

What's the best position to get pregnant?

Realistically, no one position is way ahead of the rest when it comes to getting pregnant. Having said that, some experts believe that the deeper penetration you get with the missionary position (with the man on top of the woman, face to face) can be best, giving the sperm a shorter swim to the cervix.

Are there any positions to avoid during sex?

Sperm are designed to swim into the woman’s womb and fallopian tubes to reach the egg and that’s just what they do. Though some say you should avoid positions where the woman is upright to increase chances of the sperm being retained in the body.

Is there a good position after sex?

Some women prefer to lie down after sex or even place a pillow under the hips to try to keep as much semen in the body as possible. This may have benefits if the sperm is of poor quality but again, this has not been positively proven. With each ejaculation, around 50 – 500 million sperm are released and it only needs around 400 to reach the egg to allow for a good chance of pregnancy.

Can we choose to have a girl…

Again, nothing proven but some say that having sex in a shallower position (side-by–side or spoons) places the sperm lower in the vagina, which may give the X sperm a better change of reaching their target.

… Or a boy?

As above, no proof here either but some say deep penetration such as doggy style deposits the sperm further into the vagina, nearer the cervix, so the Y sperm have an advantage.

Does an orgasm help conception?

The very purpose of an orgasm is said to be to draw the semen into the uterus but as those plucky little sperm will keep on swimming anyway, they will get to their target if they are allowed.

And so in conclusion…

Whilst the idea that certain positions, times of day, phases of the moon and post-sex practices increase your chances of getting pregnant may be a nice idea, in truth there is no actual scientific proof behind any of these. But there’s no harm in trying…

TTC

Hi all,
I recently had the m/c removed after having it for 4 years, however have not had a period yet, I read on other forums that most women found they started bleeding straight away and am now worried that I haven't. I'm 34 and my husband is 40 and we would love to have a baby now. I have the added complication of being epileptic and have been reducing my medications slowly in preparation. I am also taking a higher dose of folic acid. Can anyone help?

Thanks to DR Ekaka.

Don't panic

Me and my boyfriend were trying for a baby for 1 year, it seemed the more we tried the less likely it would happen, my friend then told me that if I stopped trying so hard it'll happen, so I got my head into my work and 5 months later I fell pregnant, we now have a daughter of 3 months, she has Cystic Fibrosis but we wouldn't change her for the world x x so just don't worry if its meant to happen it will x

Trying For No 2

Me and my partner have decided to try for our second. Before we were together I had had three miscarriages at 14 weeks, 18.5 weeks and 12 weeks. My daughter was then born 8 weeks early and since her birth I have had another miscarriage at 4 weeks. I had the tests done before I got pregnant with my daughter and everything was healthy and in perfect working order. I was just wondering if I either might find it difficult or if anyone else had trouble after so many miscarriages.

Trying

I have two teenage girls and a three year old step son my partner and I have just decided to start trying for a baby I'm slightly worried about such an age gap with my children and as I have been on the pill and now the patch for 13 I years am wondering how long it will take for the contraception to wear off. Several years ago I tried for six months to get pregnant with my ex partner with no result he has just had a child so it makes me wonder if we will have problems, lets wait and see!!! Fingers and toes crossed!!

TTC

Endometriosis

Hi me and my partner have been together for nearly 5 years we have 1 child together who is nearly 4. Before I got with my partner I was diagnosed with endometriosis (scarring in the felopian tubes sorry bad typo) I had a small operation in january 2008 lazer treatment to clear the scar tissue in my tubes and in the April I met my current partner just 3 months later I fell pregnant with our son. Since around 18 months after my son was born we have been kinda trying to have another baby ( if it happens it happens) so not using contraception so not avoiding it but nothing's happening. I'm worried my endometriosis has come back and it's preventing us from having another baby. My cramps have also returned which is why I had the operation in the first place x please can someone give me some advice as we would like another baby x

I had a m/c in december 2011 I have been trying since any help on how I can increase my chances would be great thanks everyone

Relax

I was trying for my first child for 3 yrs, every time I got my period I was a mess. Even my dog had babies which was a blessing as I had something to take my mind off me, I also went on holiday without my husband and relaxed. I believe that not trying so hard helped it too happen I now have a beautiful daughter and a Hansome son. It took 3yrs with both, keep ur chin up and don't put too much pressure on yourselves. X

ttc

hi i had a m/c last year march and after was then told i had pcos but didnt have the syndrome i have had periods every month with cycle between 26-29 days doctors say they because of this i am ovulating and that i just have to keep trying does anyone have any good tips i am trying to keep my weight maintained and am taking conception pills but still nothing

people ttc

Hey all, many of you are saying you've been ttc for a matter of months & are unhappy that you're not pregnant, just to let you know, the average couple take a year to concieve so stop worrying & have fun! Good luck to you all! Xx

hi all myself and my hubby

hi all myself and my hubby have been trying for a baby for 5 years i have 2 older children with my ex but now with my hubby we cant seem to get pregnant we have been for all the tests and there is nothing wrong with my hubby its strange after 2 children that the problem lies with me i have poly cystic ovary syndrome and only ovulate once every 3-4 months i have also lost weight 4 1/2 stone so far but the doctor still wants me 2 lose another 1 1/2 stone before they will do anything to help at the moment i find it very hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

depo and the advice i was given

As far as the depo injection goes, its different for every person. I was on it for 8 years before i decided to come off to try for a baby. It took 3 months for my period to come back and i was on for 11 consecutive weeks. After allowing my body to get back to normal, eating healthy and exercising my partner and i managed to conceive after 18 months in total (from the date of my last injection). Might help but i was also advised that you have a better chance of conceiving when only having sex 2-3 times a week. The saying of quality NOT quantity, allows for the sperm levels to be replaced each time. Having sex everyday does not help!!! Good Luck xx

trying

hello, me and my fiance have been trying to get pregnant for nearly three years and have had no luck, i have recently been diagnosed with (pcos) poly cystic ovary syndrome and have been told that i dont ovulate. is there anyone else out there that has this problem and has concieved a child and what help did u recieve? :)

depo

Hi, i have been on the depo injection for 5 years, i had my last injection in Oct and didnt go back for december injection so i can try for a baby. i had 1 day of spotting last week, does it take ages to concieve after being on the depo injection. how do i work out if not had a period when i am most fertile?

I'm wondering if anyone has

I'm wondering if anyone has any tips with getting pregnant after taking the pill? I stopped taking the pill in september 2011 and it took 7 weeks to have a period afterwards! Although its still early days, lots of people keep telling me that you tend to catch quicker after the pill, are these just myths or are these other girls just lucky??

Sepressing

My fiancé and I have been trying for a year, 2 very painful miscarriages, one at 7 week and one at 13 weeks with no doctors help or input as they keep saying there's no reason why, I now can't conceive, we both really want a baby, both the pregnancies were there even though home tests showed negative, I had positive bloods, anyone have any recommendations for ovulation tracking

Hi All :) Me and my partner

Hi All :) Me and my partner have been trying to have a baby for around 3 years now and nothing seems to be happening. We both make sure we take plenty of vitamins and try and eat healthy. It's heart breaking as all my friends have children now and were really finding it hard for me to conceive. Any help or advice would be great x

trying after having implant taken out

i have had the implant out 2 weeks does anyone know how long it takes for periods to start ??????? many thanks

long story lol

i had the depoonly had 3 shots then went onto a pill to kick start my periods then doc told me once i had a period take the pill started that then came off but my periods where everywhere so bk to docs again and got put on norethisterone took that for 3 months so this month is my ovulating day what are my chances of getting pregnant ?

Off the implant and pregnant a few months later.

If you've had an implant in it does take a while for your body to get back to normal. I had the implant in for 4 years in total, i had it taken out in June 2010 and conceived December 2010 so it took around 6 months. I have friends who are desperate for babies as well and the only advise I can give is just let it happen - dont hurt yourself every month by taking all these tests and getting depressed when they're negative. Think positively, check when you would be fertile depending on your period schedule and have sex every other day and enjoy it! your body does strange things when your down and worrying wont get you anywhere. Prop a pillow under your bum after sex and lie back hips up for a good 20 minutes after sex, its what i did and worked the first time i tried! I now have a 3 month old boy and couldnt be happier xx
