Re: sexual positions and pregnancy

Sometimes it seems when you have an accident and don't want a pregnancy then it happens more easily, and when you really want to get pregnant, it takes ages.

Sperm are very good swimmers and despite gravity, they are able to swim up through the womb and into the fallopian tubes where they need to be to meet the egg.

There are no positions that make it more or less likely to get pregnant. If you don't want to get pregnant, then use contraception EVERY time!

If you do want to get pregnant, then regular sex every two or three days is just about right.

I hope this helps. Dr Webberley
