11 Embarrassing Fertility Questions Answered
There are probably all sorts of crazy questions you have, which don't spring to your lips when you're sitting in front of your doc in a paper gown. Never fear though, because here are the answers to all the questions you've been dying to ask, but haven't.
4. Is there a sex position that’s best for conceiving?
Good news here—whatever floats your boat works just fine. Most experts agree that any position that deposits sperm next to the cervix is effective. Some women worry that if they are on top, sperm will leak out immediately. Semen is very thick when it is ejaculated and liquefies with time. This keeps it next to the cervix long enough for the sperm to forge ahead. However, director of Georgetown University’s Institute for Reproductive Health, Dr. Victoria Jennings, MD, points out there is a common belief that missionary position is best. “There is not actual evidence for this, but it certainly can’t hurt.” Different positions do not influence the sex of the baby.
