Missionary position is one of the best sex positions when it comes to conception because when the woman lies on her back, the tilt of her uterus makes it easier for the sperm to travel to the cervix and into the uterus. Another a plus for the missionary position is that it allows the penis to penetrate more deeply into the vagina, so sperm can enter the cervix more directly right after ejaculation. But guess what, it’s boring! Turn it up with the next position- the Pelvic tilt.
In fact, this position is even more effective than the classic Missionary because while the man keeps still, it’s the woman who does all the work, rocking back and forward thrusting her hips. This is Missionary redux!
She supports herself on her elbows, facing the bed, while the man steps between her legs which are stretched out behind her, lifts up her hips and thighs and penetrates from behind. You need some strength for this one. This is a fun variation on the traditional doggy style position and maximizes penetration.
Most women are fertile five to six days each cycle, during their fertility window. The fertility window opens five days before ovulation and closes on the day of ovulation, with the most fertile days just before ovulation. To make conception more likely, have sex a day or two before you expect to ovulate and then again on the day of ovulation.
- After ejaculation, the woman should remain lying on her back for an additional 20 to 30 minutes, preferably with her lower back supported by a pillow so her pelvis is tilted slightly upward.
- Orgasm is the training ground for fertility. So have sex, and often, (not just near ovulation) enjoy it! Although you don’t need to have an orgasm to conceive it sure makes it more fun!
