  • Well, they only way a position could possibly help that I can imagine is if you allow for gravity to help....that being said, use your imagination.... :)........Honestly, the best way to conceive is to make love with sole intention of making love and you will have so much fun and laughter and joy that the two of you will become 3 (or more possibly)......enjoy yourselves, darling, don't make it seem like work...

  • I got pregnant while on top. It's an old wives tale.

  • From the responses I'd say anyway can work. I say just keep doing what your doing, maybe change positions and keep things fun!!

  • Good question, my friend got pg while on top, but I would assume other positions would be better to keep things where they belong :)

  • I'm telling you, use Preseed. We used it 5 years ago, and I got pregnant the ONE time we DTD. We did it with me with my butt near the end of couch, and DH on his knees in front of me. My sin turns 4 next Tuesday

  • I don't think it's scientific proof, but I would probably say doggy, because the man can get in there deeper. Also, as someone else said, make sure that you're just doing it to do it, not because you're "trying" at that particular moment. I would leave the semen inside. That's what I do when I'm trying to get pregnant. You're supposed to go to the bathrooom before and after to flush out any bacteria. IDK if that helps your chances if you keep it inside or not. Good luck!
