  • Ask all the 16 year olds that got pregnant without elevating their hips. Caution-you can get pregnant by having sex. But elevating HELPS.

  • You don't need to elevate your hips. I heard that is just a myth. When I was TTC I would totally lay flat for a few minutes before getting up lol but I don't think it makes a difference... If the sperm is going to make it up to the egg it will make it all on its own!
