Planning Sex When You Are Trying to Conceive

Cheerful young couple in bed

You would think that having sex every day would be the easiest way to conceive. Unfortunately, this isn’t so. For one thing, you aren’t fertile every day. But more importantly, giving yourself a break between intercourse allows your spouse to build up sperm counts ensuring that his fellows are fast and furious as they make their way to the uterus. If you over do it with sex, the sperm can be sluggish and be present in low numbers. So, give your man a break from time to time.

Remember that sex is supposed to be fun whether you are trying to conceive or not. Rather than just doing it in a methodical fashion, allow yourself to relax and enjoy the experience. Sexual analysts suggest that enjoying sex and maintaining the quality of your sex life when you are trying to conceive goes miles for reducing your stress – which can help you stay fertile longer.

    My husband and I don’t plan sex, ovulating or not we just go for it. And I don’t think it matters which positions you try when trying to conceive.

    Helpful, but planned sex is not our thing. I think we would both get bored real quick trying to conceive this way. I don’t want to be saying "We have to have sex, NOW!!"
