How to get Pregnant?

What is Pregnancy?

             Pregnancy or Fertilization usually occurs when a sperm fertilizes an egg by joining with it during sexual intercourse without assisted reproduction. The fertilized egg moves down into the uterus and implants itself into the uterus lining where it starts to grow and developed  into an embryo. The embryo grows into a fetus. Conception only takes place at a particular time of the month in the female during her periods.              

In some cases, as when nature needs a boost, a little push from you and your partner can go a long way in getting pregnant. When it comes to the best position to get pregnant, the general rule is that the male sperm must be deposited as near to the female cervix as possible. 

How to get Pregnancy?
               This has something to do with the life spans of the female egg and the male sperm. Once an egg is released from the ovary - a stage also known as ovulation - it begins its path down the fallopian tube to the uterus. A released egg typically survives for only 24 hours, while a sperm can last anywhere from three to five days in the female body. As such, the egg has to be as close to the egg as possible so they can meet and join before the egg dies.

While not a lot of people will agree that the sexual position have anything to do with getting pregnant, the logical inference is that it makes sense to assume the position that can help the sperm meet the egg in the shortest possible time.

This is especially true when for couples who have problems or difficulty conceiving. Having said this, the first "best position to get pregnant" tip is to avoid positions that least expose the cervix to the male sperm, and that generally defy gravity such as sex while standing up, sitting down, or with the woman on top. When trying to conceive, it is best to limit the amount of sperm that flows back out of the vagina. 

1.   Have sex continuously. If you constantly have sex two or three times each week, you’re almost certain to hit a fertile period at some specific point. For healthy couples who need to conceive, there isn’t any such thing as too much sex. For many couples, this could be all it takes.
2.   Have sex once per day close to the time of ovulation.Daily intercourse during the days leading in to ovulation may increase the chances of conception. Though your partner’s sperm concentration will drop a touch every time you have sex, the reduction isn’t usually an argument for healthy men.
3.    Foods to aid in getting pregnant. Maintain a healthy weight, exercise frequently, eat healthy foods and keep stress in hand. The same good habits will serve you and your baby well when pregnant.
4.   Consider preconception planning. Your GP can assess your general health and aid you in identifying life changes which will improve your probabilities for a good pregnancy. Preconception planning is especially useful if you or your companion have any health concerns.
5.    Vitamins aid in getting pregnant. Felic acid ( vitamin B-9 ) plays an essential role in an infant’s development. Taking a prenatal vitamin or Felic acid supplement beginning at least one month before conception thru the first trimester of pregnancy can decrease the risk of spinal biddable and other neural tube defects by almost 70 %.

Consider the following positions are helpful to get pregnancy:

1. The missionary position. 
              Man-on-top is said to be the position that's best for getting pregnant. This is because this particular position allows for the deepest possible penetration, making it possible for the sperm to get deposited closest to the cervix.

2. Raise the hips. 
             Elevating the hips, which can be done by placing a pillow behind her, can also be helpful because this exposes the female cervix to as much semen as the male can release.

3. Doggy-style. 
             The rear-entry position where the man enters the woman from behind is also a recommended position. In this position, sperm is also deposited closest to the cervix, thereby helping increase the chances of conception.

4. Side-by-side.
             You can also try having intercourse while lying side by side. This position likewise causes the most exposure of the cervix to the male sperm.

5. Orgasms.
              Finally, while this has nothing to do with sexual positions, there are also researches that suggest the importance of the female orgasm in conceiving. According to studies, female orgasm leads to contractions that could push sperm up into the cervix. The lesson: have fun while trying to conceive.
