Do You Need A Female Orgasm To Get Pregnant?

In a word, no. Female orgasm is not required for a woman to get pregnant. Many women get pregnant without ever reaching an orgasm. While experts and scientists have long theorized about the purpose of the female orgasm, if it is not needed for pregnancy like the male orgasm is, we still don’t know what exactly the scientific purpose is. But, hey, who’s complaining?

Can Orgasm Help You To Conceive?

Doctors today think that there is no scientific reason that an orgasm would help a woman to get pregnant. While doctors agree that orgasm can help women feel more relaxed and can make sex more enjoyable, but it doesn’t necessarily increase the chances of getting pregnant.

It’s probably a good thing that women don’t have to orgasm to get pregnant, since that would just put additional pressure on the ladies to have “perfect sex” every single time. As we all know, trying to conceive can be stressful enough as it is.

So, Why Can Women Orgasm?

If orgasm is not required for pregnancy, why do the experts think we are physically able to? Well, while today’s scientists don’t know for sure, the scientists of yesterday had several very interesting theories. Some doctors hypothesized that the reason for female orgasm is that the uterine contractions brought on by orgasm help to “suck up” the sperm from the vagina and pull it up into the cervix to where the egg is waiting to be fertilized.

Other scientists used to think that orgasms made women feel tired after sex, so that they would lie down, and give the sperm a better chance to reach the cervix. While none of these theories have been proven by today’s scientific standards, they certainly are interesting.

Enjoy It Anyway!

The bottom line, ladies? Even though female orgasm might not serve a “purpose” when it comes to conceiving, that is no reason not to enjoy them anyway! Plus, not having to reach orgasm every time you have conception sex takes the pressure of a little bit for the ladies. It’s nice to have one less thing to focus on while trying to conceive. And, by all means, if it happens, enjoy it!
