7 Best Sex Positions for Conception:
It took me years to get pregnant with my second child, and let me tell you, trying to conceive can really take all the sexiness out of sex. When you’re so focused on ovulation monitors, basal body temperature, and cervical mucus (need I say more?), it’s easy to forget that getting busy is supposed to be pleasurable. Instead, sex — that thing that used to drive you wild — becomes a chore that falls somewhere between emptying the dishwasher and folding the laundry, even if you seek out the best sex positions for fun/orgasm/spontaneity (you name it) there just isn’t a lot of it when you’re TTC.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you want to bring the sexy back while trying to get pregnant, why not try some new positions? Call them the best sex positions for wanting to love sex while you’re TTC. “The more relaxed and stress-free a couple can be when trying to conceive, the better,” says Jessica Schneider, MD, a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist in Los Angeles. “So if new positions help them relax and have fun, they should try them.” And although no study exists to prove which positions (if any) are the best sex positions for conception, there are some unscientific theories about why these seven maneuvers could help you get pregnant more quickly. Why not test one out tonight?
