  • Didn't do any of that. Just timed it correctly. Are you charting your cycles? Check out TCOYF.com for info on how-to.

  • I don't know about position but afterwards put your hips up, try a towel under your butt for 15mins or so. GL!

  • towels are usually firmer....

    Best Positions
    The man-on-top position works well when trying to conceive. Place a small pillow under your hips following intercourse so that your cervix basically rests in the pool of semen for a short time (perhaps 20 minutes or so). This will allow the sperm time to easily swim up through the cervix. (Important Note: Do not use a large pillow, or you may sabotage your efforts, since the sperm may then puddle behind your cervix. Not a good place to be when trying to reach that egg.)

  • Doesn't matter I got pregnant after being on top and not "laying" there at all.

  • If your uterus is retroverted doggie style is best for conception. But in all reality if there is no egg released, position does not matter. The timing has to be right.

  • Doesn't matter. It's all about timing. I conceived my second standing up. And going to the bathroom right afterwards.
