    Sexual positions to get pregnant – can some sexual positions increase the chance of getting pregnant?

    The matter of sexual position and a chance of getting pregnant has always been an eternal question asked by most of the women wanting to have a baby. In this article, we are going to look at the mechanism of fertilization and we will check if there is any position that could increase the probability of getting pregnant.

    Getting pregnant

    Pregnancy starts when a spermatozoid fuses with an egg inside the woman’s Fallopian tube. However, the chances of fertilization are not the same during the whole menstrual cycle. You need to receive sperm in your vagina around the same time that an egg is produced. Otherwise, no fertilization is going to occur.

    Most women usually have about 5 days in their menstrual cycle called the pregnancy window.

    Most women usually have about 5 days in their menstrual cycle called the pregnancy window. During those days the probability of  producing a child is the highest because the egg comes out. It is therefore crucial for every women to know her body well and to have sex during those days.

    The role of sexual positions

    As explained before, a spermatozoid has to get to the egg and fuse with it in order to create a fetus that will grow into a baby. That is why you need to find a position that increases the chances of the sperm to move towards the egg.

    That should be a position where the penis gets very deep into the vagina and gets closer to the cervix. The cervix is the opening where the sperms pass through to get to the egg. If they manage to get there, the chances of getting pregnant are high.

    The best sexual positions

    Try all the positions you like and just enjoy happy moments with your partner.

    Most gynecologists and sexologists agree that the missionary position is the best from anatomical point of view. In this position both partners are lying, a man is on the top of a woman. It allows deep penetration, so ejaculation happens closer to the cervix allowing the spermatozoa to move inside the Fallopian tube much faster.

    The fact that the woman is lying on her back also prevents the sperm from leaking. It is advised to stay in that particular position after ejaculation to give some time for the sperm to move inside woman’s body – 15 minutes in average are advised.

    Another recommended position is the rear-entry, popularly known as doggy style. If practiced, it is advised to have the woman kneel down with her head lying on a pillow as the man is performing from behind. That is another way to allow the sperm flow inward the cervix.

    Positions with lower chances to beget a baby

    Any position that decreases the chances of the sperm flowing inward the cervix is considered as less effective. This includes all positions where the woman  is on the top of the man. The sperm will end up flowing downward the vagina, coming out of it instead of moving inside.

    Both partners are not supposed to be standing when having sex with the idea of producing a child. Sitting positions are also not the best one.

    The most advised sexual position to adopt when trying to get pregnant is the missionary. It doesn’t guarantee that you will get pregnant after trying it once it but has much higher ratio of succeed sexual attempts as compared to the others. The most important thing is that both of you are relax and not obsessively focused on the thought of having a baby. Try all the positions you like and just enjoy happy moments with your partner. Good luck!
