There are many theories doing the rounds when it comes to the best sexual positions to get pregnant. While many professionals have discredited such claims, we say that there is no harm in trying what have been defined as the best sexual positions to get pregnant.



The missionary position is considered the best sexual positions when one is trying to get pregnant. In this position, the man is on top. It is said that in the missionary position of sexual intercourse, the sperm is delivered very close to the woman’s cervix. This ensures that the sperm can reach the egg faster. It is also advised that while having sex in the missionary position, a pillow should be placed behind the woman’s lower back area. This will enable the sperm to travel to the egg and will help in getting pregnant faster.


Rear entry

In this sexual position, the man enters the woman from behind while she is on all four. This position is considered good for getting pregnant because this style of entry also ensures that the sperm in placed very close to the cervix of the woman.

Side by side

The side by side style is one of the best positions to get pregnant. In this sexual positions, the couple lie down side by side, facing each other. The side by side style of sexual intercourse also makes the cervix of the woman approachable for the sperm.



Whatever sexual position you might vouch for while trying to get pregnant, you must ensure that the sperm remains within you after sexual intercourse. For this purpose do not immediately get up after sex. Lie down for some time and then get up if need be.
