#5 – Don’t Tie Yourself in Knots
Unless you’re taking a yoga class, you don’t need to twist yourself into crazy positions when trying for a baby. There are a lot of old wives’ tales about the best position to take during sex, but ultimately the best position is the one that you enjoy the most. Your cervix is designed to hold on to sperm, after all, so don’t feel like you have to stick with missionary. On the other hand, no one needs to run out and buy a sex swing either.
After sex, it can help to lie on your back for around 15 minutes. You don’t have to put your legs in the air or elevate your hips; this is just to give the sperm a chance to fully travel into your cervix. Just relax and enjoy intimate time together, during and after sex.
