Do you know which are the best sex positions to conceive a baby? If you’re trying to get pregnant, your partner and you may have been wondering about this.
Myth or reality? The truth is that there's no scientific evidence to prove that certain positions are more effective than others when it comes to procreating. That being said, some of them could be argued to increase your chances, due to the level of penetration and the way the semen gets and stays inside your uterus, among other factors. But even if their effectiveness is not scientifically tested, you never get enough tips for getting pregnant, right?
Looking for a baby is a good time for you and your partner to enjoy sex to the utmost while trying to 'hit the jackpot'. Get adventurous and playful by adopting the best sex positions to conceive a baby. Are you curious? Take a look at the following list and decide which is your favourite!
One of the most famous positions, the missionary provides good penetration and it allows the sperm to reach the cervix area, because the woman's pelvic area isn't facing downwards. The performance is simple: the man goes on top while you lie on your back. It's meant to be as traditional as effective and, why not, very pleasant as well!
Here's another of the best sex positions to conceive a baby. This is a variation of the missionary that sets the man on top, but with his legs extending all the way out while resting on his arms. You are again on your back, but your legs must now be bent and your pelvis, a little raised (a pillow under your back will help you be more comfortable). This ensures even a better penetration than with the ordinary missionary.
A classic of the Kamasutra, the doggy style can be both fun and functional for having a baby. Your position, on all fours, makes the cervix more open than with other poses, which also guarantees a very good penetration.
Behind this 'mysterious' name we found a style that relates to the doggy one. Actually, the 'structure' is quite similar. You are on your hands and knees, while the man lies over your back, which is against his chest. If you need to, use a few pillows to make sure that you remain steady and bent over at the waist. This is one of the best positions to get pregnant, since it allows successful penetration and, at the same time, stimulates your 'lady parts'.
Do you like cuddling your partner? Lucky you, then. The spooning style, which puts the man behind you while lying down, provides you with the whole package. Not only it allows you to snuggle your favourite person, but also it makes it easier for the sperm to travel all the way to the cervix, which makes it another of the best sex positions to conceive a baby. That happens, because your pelvis gets tilted in the most advantageous way possible.
And finally, take note of this sexy pose. Lie on your back, raising your legs so they rest on the man's shoulders. He must stand on his feet and grab you from your hips, pushing them a little bit up. This is a very natural way for the sperm to find its way inside your vagina and remain there.
There are a few components that need to come together to achieve conception. A good pose during sexual intercourse may help, but don't forget to pay attention to the 'timing'. Take advantage of your fertile days, which cover the ovulation period (about 6 days). This is when you need to give in to your desires and hope for success. It may take you a few attempts before you (he, in this case) pushes the 'baby button'. Another thing to take into account is that there are methods related to sex positions or fertile days (with different levels of effectiveness) that can help conceiving a girl or conceiving a boy!
These are considered to be the best sex positions to conceive a baby but, after all, they matter only relatively. The major point here is that you and your partner have decided to have a child. Choosing a path to him or her is just one of the multiple steps you are going to take from now on.
