Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could ensure conception by doing some very specific (and very sexy) moves under the sheets? Well, I have good news and bad news. Unfortunately, there isn’t any scientific proof that certain sex positions can guarantee you’ll get pregnant. But you can increase the odds with a few moves, as there are certain sex positions that can help you get pregnant.
According to Health, any sexual position that allows for deeper penetration is going to give you the best odds for baby-making, as deeper penetration means the sperm are right next to the cervix during his orgasm, shortening the distance those swimmers have to travel. This is especially helpful for women with certain health issues, such as a tilted uterus or pelvic adhesions.
I know this was true for me, as I had scar tissue around my uterus thanks to endometriosis. This condition can cause infertility, which made it tough to try to conceive. But thanks to a very certain sex position, the swimmers were able to to get past the scarring and into my egg. Nine months later, I had a baby girl. Different positions, angles, and levels of penetration offer a chance for your particular body to have the best odds at getting pregnant, while keeping the sex fun. Although no sex position can guarantee conception, it’s worth testing out a few that could potentially increase the odds. So if you’re trying to conceive, here are nine sex positions that could potentially help you get pregnant.
1Pillow Under The Butt
Putting a pillow under your butt during missionary creates a tilt that gives sperm to have the best possible chance reaching the uterus. And as an added bonus, Love Sutras notes that pillow under the butt stimulates your G-Spot.
Doggy style works especially well for conception because of the deep penetration, which actually moves the cervix. The Bump notes this is also a great pposition if you have a tilted uterus.
3The Glowing Triangle
The glowing triangle looks like the missionary position with a twist. In this case, the man is on all fours, while the woman lifts her hips toward him, and rocks back and forth. Deep penetration and a very sexy hip swivel make this position a must-try.
The magic mountain is known for its deep penetrating qualities, which is exactly what you want for baby-making. Stack four or five pillows (i.e. the mountain) and bend over them, allowing your partner to enter you Doggy Style from behind (the magic).
5The Splitting Bamboo
The name of this sexual position may sound painful, but the splitting bamboo is actually easy to do and even easier to enjoy. The woman lies on her back and raises one leg up over the man’s shoulders, while the man straddles the woman’s other thigh and penetrates during sex. This allows the depth of the penetration to be easily controlled, and allows the women to give a signal to move to the left, move to the right, go deeper.
Another variation on the missionary, the drill position has the man on top,with the woman’s legs pulled up so her knees are at his side. This allows for a deeper penetration, as well as intense intimacy, which is nice to have when you’re making a baby together.
7The Union of The Oyster
Although this sounds like an avant-garde dish, the union of the oyster is actually a sex position that provides deep penetration. The woman lies on her back and brings her legs up, so that her knees are on the man’s side. The man then holds her thighs with his hands, even leaning against
Meet the viennese oyster, a sex romp for flexible women. Basically, this is the union of the oyster — legs drawn up, man on top — but the woman extends her legs all the way behind her head. It may be a little tough, but remember, it’s all for a good cause.
Sometimes the hardest thing about getting pregnant is how tense you can become. Spooning during sex can be comforting and relaxing, two states of being that doctors say increase your odds of conceiving. So cuddle up together, and spoon your way into parenthood.
