Photos: 12 hot sex positions to help you get pregnant faster
On the lap: In this position the woman is sitting on the lap of the man with her legs wrapped around him. While this may seem like a position that may not help you get pregnant, this position definitely brings you closer to your partner, can make you orgasm (which has been known to increase a woman’s chances of getting pregnant) and helps the sperm travel towards your cervix. All these factors put together, make for the perfect recipe for baby making.
Woman on top: This is a sex position that helps the woman be in control and is known to aid in her having an orgasm faster. This position is great to improve the ‘sexy quotient’ between the two of you and will help you conceive faster.
Missionary: One of the most standard sex positions out there, the missionary position is the best for baby making. In this position, since the woman is on her back it helps the man’s sperm travel to the cervix – helping in conception.
Spooning: This is probably the most essential part about making a baby that most couples miss out on. The cuddling after sex is perfect since it makes a woman feel more secure and helps release a specific hormone in her body that aids in conception.
Close up: This is a variation of the spooning position, with a slight difference. In this position the woman lies down with her back towards her man and he penetrates her from behind, while holding her. Your legs are bent at the knees and the woman’s back is towards the man’s chest. This helps in a number of ways, but one of the most important aspects is that the sperm is closer to the cervix in this position allowing for quicker conception
The Zen position: Known as one of the most relaxing positions, this one has you and your lady love facing each other; your legs are intertwined and your chest is pressed against hers. An extremely close position, this one is also great for conception.
The glowing juniper: Another really sexy position to be in, this one has you sitting with your legs stretched out and your lover lies on your lap with her legs around your waist. You then have to penetrate her as she lies in front of you. You can wrap your arms around her waist and pull her towards you to intensify the feeling.
The butterfly: You’ll need a table for this one! Have her lie down on the table on her back, with her bum on the edge of the table. Now spread her legs and penetrate her. The twist here is to raise her legs so that they are resting on your shoulders. Place a few pillows under her hips to help raise her pelvic region – all in all a position that is perfect for conception
Doggy style: Also known as the rear-entry, in this position the woman is bent over and the man penetrates her from behind. In this position the woman’s pelvis is bent slightly downwards and her vagina is slightly shortened, which helps in deeper penetration and faster conception. What’s more the man has easy access to a woman’s sweet spots –her breasts, clitoris and back!
The glowing triangle: Here the man is on top, the woman lies below him and wraps her legs around his waist as he penetrates her. You can also place a few pillows under her hips to help keep it raised. A great position for faster conception, this position helps retain seminal fluid for longer in her vagina (near her cervix), giving the man’s sperm a lot more time to swim towards the egg
Anvil: This is another position that is quite similar to the missionary position, with one slight change. Here the woman legs are raised up in the air, and are between her and the man. He leans forward, raising her pelvis and pushing her legs (extended) towards her chest. The position again raises the woman’s pelvis and helps the man’s sperm reach the egg.
