Wondering about the best sex positions in bed to get pregnant?
The dispute over whether certain positions can help you get pregnant has been ongoing for centuries. Some proven, some not. The position you need to use really depends on you and your body. Some women have a hard time getting pregnant while others have baby dust sprinkled all over them.
8 sex positions in bed to get pregnant:
Are you trying to get pregnant for the first time or again? Try these for sure!
1. Missionary style – Aka Guy on top
Missionary style = man on top. This is arguably the ultimate sex position in bed to get pregnant.
Why? With the woman on her back, and vagina tilted downwards, the sperm have an easier time getting to where it needs to go. Let’s not forget that the missionary position allows for a deeper penetration.
To increase your chances of conception, the woman should remain horizontal for 20-30 mins after her partner ejaculates, with her pelvis tilted slightly upwards.
2. Lying side by side – Aka spooning
The spooning position allows for the man’s penis to reach further into you, allowing the semen to be closer to your uterus. Which in turn will give them a better chance to reach your eggs. One of the best sex positions to get pregnant.
3. Hands and knees – Aka Doggy style
Doggy style is a great way to get deeper penetration and deposit the sperm closer to your cervix. Just remember to lie down for at least 15 minutes after ejaculation. Gravity is what helps the sperm to get to its destination.
These ideas work good for women who have a hard time getting pregnant. Now for women who find it pretty easy to get pregnant, you may want to try and concentrate on some of the theories that can determine if you have a girl or boy baby.
4. Woman On Top – Aka cowgirl style
While you may be working against gravity here, experts say it does not matter. The “woman on top” position is generally the most pleasurable position for a woman and that’s the most important thing!
The position can also help you conceive a baby girl. XX chromosomes will live longer in vaginal climates than the XY chromosomes. Therefore they do not have to be placed closer to the cervix.
5. Using A Chair As A Prop – The Hot Seat
Sitting on top of your man in a chair is a great way to get his penis deeper inside you and many women find that having an orgasm is achieved easier this way.
Just remember to not to dismount right after your man orgasms. Even though the sperm may not spill out completely, just be cautious.
6. In Between His Legs
Here’s another position that has proven success. The woman’s pelvis should be on the edge of the bed with the man in between her legs and he enters that way. This will allow for the man to go deeper into the vaginal area and place the sperm closer to your cervix.
You can also stay in that position afterwards for a few minutes to help the sperm on it’s way.
7. Standing Up With The Man Behind You
Standing up with the man behind you is another pleasurable position that can help produce a girl.
8. Getting floored
Now if you’re flexible enough, the position with you on the floor, legs up in the air and your man between your legs is a great position to make a boy.
The XY chromosomes need to be placed deeper because they do not survive as long as the XX ones do.
9. Avoid Bath Tub And Shower Positions
Bath tub and shower positions should be avoided if you are trying to get pregnant. Any of these will wash the semen out before it has a chance to connect.
10. Conception tip – Raise your hips
After intercourse, experts recommend that you place a pillow under your hips to allow for your cervix and uterus to be aligned better. This gives the semen a straighter shot for fertilizing an egg. They recommend staying there for at least 20-30 minutes.
11. Conception tip – female orgasms
While the female orgasm is not essential to get pregnant, some believe that uterine contractions from an orgasm may actually help the sperm move deeper toward the fallopian tubes, in order to fertilise your egg.
12. Conception tip – don’t overdo it!
Overdoing it may result in you losing the enjoyment and spontaneity of lovemaking. It is also better to have sex every alternate day so his sperm count can recover and recharge.
13. Conception tip – Boy or girl?
In general, sex positions in bed to get pregnant that will allow the sperm to be deposited shallower in the vagina will help to produce baby girls while positions that provide deeper penetration will aid in conceiving a baby boy. Girl (XX) chromosomes live and last longer that boy (XY) chromosomes.
14. Conception tip – Timing
To increase your chances of conception, ideally have sex one or two days before you expect ovulation to occur, and then again on the day of ovulation.
15. Take time in between
A man’s sperm count will decrease each time he has sex. So go easy on the frequency. Spread it out — have a day in between to allow for a better sperm count.
