When a couple is trying to conceive there are many considerations to take into account, with one of the biggest considerations of course being the sex itself being had with the intention of getting pregnant. There are numerous rumors and theories about sex positions and pregnancy, with many simply being factually incorrect. Having sex in any position CAN get a woman pregnant, with standing-up being just as efficient as laying side-by-side or whatever a couple desires.
With that said, when a couple is trying to get pregnant one key element is having the man’s penis as close to the cervix as possible when he climaxes (e.g. deep penetration) as this prevents things that can reduce the chance or pregnancy such as sperm spilling out or the man falling-out of the woman before he climax. While a man does not HAVE to ejaculate inside a woman for the couple to get pregnant (many men will emit pre-ejaculate before they climax that can result in pregnancy) this is a major element.
With that in mind, there are some optimal sex positions for getting pregnant that emphasize deep penetration to assist with the man’s climax being as close to the woman’s cervix as possible.
Position One: Missionary
The, “old classic,” is a classic for a reason, it results in pregnancy. Missionary allows for deep penetration and also is often the position couples swear-by thanks to how it is considered more, “Romantic,” thanks to the couple being face-to-face with each other. Sometimes to achieve optimal penetration however the couple may need to add a pillow underneath the woman’s bottom to raise her lower-torso up more.
Position Two: Doggystyle
This position is disliked by some couples for being too impersonal, but actually allows quite possibly for the deepest penetration of any position in existence. Also, sometimes women prefer this position because as the woman is perched at the edge of the bed and her male partner enters her either member of the couple can control the speed and rhythm of the love-making whereas with missionary the woman is less able to take a role in the conception or move her body if something is uncomfortable. This position can allow such deep penetration the man at times needs to be careful not to hurt the woman by penetrating too deeply before he climaxes.
In the End, Any Sex is Good Sex to Conceive
While these two positions that allow for deep penetration can give a couple that, “Extra edge,” when trying to get pregnant, any sex that ends with the man climaxing inside the woman is going to be a good way to get pregnant. The key in the end is for a couple to not stress and just do what feels comfortable as they work to conceive and experience the joys of parenthood.
