Photos: 6 sex positions to help you conceive faster
Missionary: This position is great for conception. Not only is the man above the woman, having greater access to your cervix, but since the woman’s legs are bent, it shortens her vagina making it a quick swim for the man’s sperm towards the cervix
Doggy style: This is where 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!
Glowing triangle: This position is great for conception. Here the man is on top, the woman lies below him and wraps her legs around his waist as he penetrates her. The woman can also place a few pillows under her hips to help keep it raised. 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.
Magic mountain: Quite similar to the doggy style, this position has the man penetrating the woman from behind. Only difference is that the man is bent over the back of the woman, and she is bent at the waist with her head and chest on the bed. Placing some pillows to make her comfortable help in keeping the mood hot. Again, here the woman’s pelvis is bent downwards helping the man’s sperm move towards the cervix
Spooning: This is a really nice position to improve your chances of getting pregnant. Not only does it help strengthen the bond between you and your partner, but it also helps calm the woman down, make her feel comfortable, thereby raising her chances of getting pregnant – remember , the happier (calmer) a woman is the more likely she is get pregnant
