  • Do you pay attention to your ovulation? (i assume you do)
    Eating right. Not smoking ...all the basics. (i assume you do that too).

  • I made sure I was really healthy. Also not worrying about it will deffinately help. Try new positions. make sure the dad is not wearing any tight panties or jeans because the sperm will not live long once made if they are. Make sure the dad is very healthy, no smoking, drinking etc. I heard that if you do missionary and then put ur legs up so that ur pelvis is tilted up the ejaculation will travel easier and faster thru the cervix to an egg if u have ovulated. And "doggie style" helps the penis travel in further so the legs in the air is not necessary

  • Caffeine (chocolate, coffee, etc) is believed to make the sperm swim faster, which will give the sperm the boost it needs to reach the egg. My dd is living proof of this theory. Tell ur hubby to consume some type of caffeine 20 minutes b4 u decide to do it, gl
