For some people getting pregnant is a cakewalk especially when they least expect it. For others, it can be hard work especially when you have to go through months and months of frustration. While this may not be a cause for concern, Mother Nature does need a helping hand to achieve conception.
The positions in which you have sex make a lot of difference in giving Mother Nature a push to facilitate conception. The golden rule of pregnancy is that the sperms need to be deposited as close to the cervix as possible. This makes the distance shorter for the sperms to swim up to the egg and fertilize it.
The position becomes crucial because the egg once released only survives for 24 hours after which it starts to deteriorate. The plus side is that the sperm can survive in the woman’s body for 3-4 days and need not be deposited quickly in order to do their bit.
Best Positions To Become Pregnant
Positions that Defy Gravity
Some couples enjoy having sex standing up, kneeling or making love in a sitting position. While this may be fun, it does not always facilitate conception as the sperm have the onerous task of having to swim up rather than down. Woman-on top position makes it difficult for the sperms to swim up and most of them end up flowing out of the vagina. Hence, such positions are best avoided.
The Missionary Position
This is by far the most popular and conventional positions to get pregnant. In this position, the woman lies below the man with the man on top. The ideal thing to do here is to rest a pillow underneath the woman’s hips so that the hips are elevated.
Once the sperm are released, they are deposited near the cervix and have an easier time swimming up to the egg, as they are now able to work with the gravity. The missionary position also allows for the deepest penetration.
Doggy style is a position in which the woman gets down on all fours and the man enters her from behind. This allows him for deeper penetration thus making it easier to deposit the sperm deep into her vagina. The man can thrust deep which means easier conception.
Side By Side
This is a position in which the man and the woman are lying on their sides and are facing one another. The man enters the woman on his side. In this, the sperm are again deposited close to the cervix thus making conception possible.
A simultaneous orgasm by both the man and the woman makes it easier for the woman to conceive. This is due to the enhanced lubrication in the vagina caused by arousal. An orgasm also makes the muscles of the uterus to contract, which pushes the sperm up closer to the egg, and this makes conception possible.
Using the above positions and enjoying sex via orgasms can go a long way to help your get pregnant. The ideal thing to do is to not be stressed but to enjoy the act, which will help in conceiving the baby faster.
