All About Babymaking Sex

Most of us know how to have sex. It’s pretty basic, right? However, when you’re ready to get pregnant, sex becomes more than just about pleasure. It’s about science. Sex for baby making is different than “regular” sex and there are a few things you need to remember about babymaking sex. Read on for the tips you need for the best chance of getting pregnant.

Time it right

The most important aspect of babymaking sex is that it is done at the right time. There are only a few short days each month that a woman can get pregnant. This is during ovulation. If you have sex during the other days of the month, that is just fine and dandy, but it’s not going to get you pregnant.

Therefore, figuring out when you are ovulating and planning sex for that time is one of the most important things that you can do to help with conception.

Choose your position Wisely

Position also matters when it comes to baby making sex. You need to make sure that you are choosing positions where gravity is on your side, so to speak, to give the best chance of the sperm reaching the egg. It’s important to choose your positions wisely.

Some positions that are good for baby making sex are missionary position and also all fours (doggy style). Any position that allows for deeper penetration and can help the sperm get closer to the egg is a good position. Avoid positions like woman on top, which can allow some of the sperm to leak out.

Enjoy yourself

It’s official! Studies have confirmed that women who orgasm during sex retain more sperm than women who do not orgasm. It’s really all about pretty basic science: the muscles contract during orgasm, and can “suck” up the sperm, placing it closer to the egg. Women who don’t orgasm don’t get this added benefit, so make sure that you are enjoying yourself during sex.

Watch the lube

Most couples don’t know that some lubricants, even some very popular over the counter lubricants, can be very damaging to sperm, and can actually kill sperm during sex. There is one “sperm friendly” lubricant on the market, called Pre Seed, which is proven to cause no damage to sperm. Make sure to use that one if you need to use a lubricant. Otherwise, try to go without one if possible to avoid any damage to the sperm.
