Tip 1 – Enjoy the s.e.x you are having
Research suggests that women who have an o.rgasm during s.e.x are more likely to conceive. The reason for this is that the cervix will dip and move during the o.rgasm, this means that the cervix will dip down into the pool of sperm inside the v.agina, which can increase the likelihood of sperm reaching the egg in order to fertilise it. All the more reason to enjoy the s.e.x you are having, so get on it and enjoy it.
Tip 2 – Take cough medicine
Some people believe that taking cough medicine can actually increase their chances of getting pregnant. Although this seems too bizarre to believe the science side of it is that cough medicine is designed to reduce the amount of mucus in the lungs, which in turn can reduce the amount of mucus in the cervix. In doing so the sperm can more readily get through the cervix as there is a reduced barrier for it to get through. Check with your doctor before taking any medicines.
Tip 3 – Have s.e.x dog style
There are lots of theories about the best position in which to conceive, but having s.e.x doggie style is believed to be another position which can help achieve conception. The reason behind this is that the positioning allows the p.enis to penetrate deeper into the v.agina, this means that when o.rgasm occurs the sperm is released closer to the neck of the cervix than in other positions. OK so it all sounds a bit technical and gross, but this combined with tip 1 – an o.rgasm from you, can help you to get pregnant, so what are you waiting for?
Tip 4 – Stop having s.e.x
Yes you read that right! Contrary to some other suggestions you can get pregnant without having s.e.x, some couples are turning to artificial insemination at home. This could be used as a break if you are getting a bit tired of having s.e.x at all hours. In order to do it you will need a turkey baster or syringe, and you may need some help inserting the baster into the v.agina so that it can reach the cervix as successfully as possible. As suggested in the other tips, an o.rgasm can help to achieve conception, so you could combine the two tips.
Tip 5 – the not so weird one – Relax!
As you could imagine, having fun and enjoying s.e.x can release hormones, which can aid conception. So why don’t you relax, enjoy and try and have fun, take the stress out of conceiving and have sex to be close to your partner. You may be surprised about the outcomes as many people say that getting pregnant happens when they are not trying, or when they least expect it. I have spoken to many of my friends who all agree that this is the most important one, as women we need to be happy and enjoy s.e.x and nature will do the rest of the work! Good luck!
