This helps the sperm on their way to the egg cell

The position during sexual intercourse is initially indifferent as long as a complete and Penetration of the limb as deep as possible into the vagina is possible. This makes it easier for the sperm cells to find their way to the fallopian tube. If the ejaculate, i.e. the ejaculation, gets deep into the vagina during sexual intercourse, the sperm threads remain capable of fertilization for longer. Only if the uterus changes position (e.g. a bend backwards, which is easily found during the physical examination by the gynecologist), when the woman is lying on her back, the immersion of the cervix after the ejaculation into the semen lake can be questionable. Then the intercourse should take place in the knee-elbow, prone and side position of the woman.

If you want to have children, it can be beneficial if the woman lies down for about an hour after intercourse and puts the buttocks a little higher by placing a cushion underneath. That sounds logical. However, many experts doubt whether this really has an effect on the pregnancy rate. Intercourse while standing or sitting In any case, the sperm does not get so deep into the vagina and can flow out more quickly.

Avoid an environment that is hostile to seeds

Since urine and other liquids are hostile to seeds, the man should be in the last half an hour before intercourse do not empty the bladder and the woman no vaginal irrigation make. Accordingly, sex in the bathtub is more likely to be anti-fertilization - but conversely that does not mean, of course, that it is an effective method of contraception ...

The likelihood of pregnancy is self under optimal conditions only approx. 25% per cycle.

Many reproductive medicine specialists recommend that the woman should have an in-depth investigation after a year of regular sexual intercourse - that is, at least twice a week - not pregnant is. Other doctors recommend waiting at least twice as long and first checking the living situation: Is the man or woman excessively stressed? Does everything only revolve around the desire to have children? Could health behavior (smoking, obesity, etc.) have an influence?

Of sterility (Infertility) is actually only spoken of when both partners want a child and, with a normal sexual relationship and unprotected intercourse, no pregnancy occurs within two years. However, especially in the case of slightly older couples (over 35 years of age), reproductive medicine specialists advise waiting a maximum of one year and then attempting a diagnostic work-up.

Ovulation makes you picky | 18.11.2016

Hormones also influence partner choice. Women rate their relationship differently during their menstrual cycle, a University of California study found. Anyone who has chosen a reliable but unattractive partner instead of opting for an attractive one unconsciously wrestles with this decision on the most fertile days. Such women do not feel as close to their partner during this time as women with a sexually desirable man and have more complaints about him. You then feel attracted to other men for a short time. The scientists emphasize: these emotions are quickly over and do not pose a threat to a long-term relationship.

Having sex more often helps | 22.08.2017

If the desire to have children does not work because the quality of the sperm is not optimal, men are often advised to abstain for a few days before sex. This should increase the chances because the ejaculate then contains significantly more sperm. However, the proportion of immobile and damaged sperm cells then quickly doubles, which in turn makes successful fertilization more difficult. A new study on more than 12,000 sperm donors therefore comes to the conclusion that daily sex has no negative impact on sperm quality, on the contrary: Couples who want to have children are more likely to recommend short intervals between "hearting". Especially with methods of artificial insemination such as ICSI and IMSI, which are less about quantity and more about quality, the periods of abstinence should be as short as possible.

Sex makes you more fertile | 27.06.2016

Couples who don't want to have children should have more sex. And not only during the fertile days, but also in between. The reason: With frequent intercourse, the male sperm is better tolerated by the woman's immune system. Because for them, sperm are primarily foreigners that have to be fought by their immune cells, especially the type 1 helper cells. With frequent sexual contact, this hostile attitude changes. Type 2 helper cells protect the sperm and promote the implantation of the fertilized egg cell. Sexually more active women also have more immunoglobulin G in their blood and in the vaginal and uterine mucus, which supports the sperm's chances of success.

Sex increases brain performance: Italian researchers have come to this new finding. Blood tests were carried out on three different groups: singles, long-term couples, and people just in love. The last group showed increased brain activity and increased nerve growth, both important for mental alertness. And the less, the longer a couple is together. The researchers believe that regular sex, especially at the beginning of a relationship, increases intelligence and reduces stress. (swissmom news ticker from March 31, 2013)

Sugar protects sperm: A new study by the Justus Liebig University Giessen shows how sperm protect themselves from immune cells in the female reproductive tract. Such immune cells form a network to capture foreign cells such as sperm and make them immobile. In the ejaculate, however, there is an enzyme that breaks down this meshwork so that the sperm can move again. The body's own sugar polymer made from acidic sialic acids could serve to increase the sperm count in men with a low sperm density in the future. (swissmom news ticker, October 20, 2013)

Sex as a fat burner: Scientists wanted to know exactly: How is the calorie consumption during sex compared to exercise? 21 heterosexual couples were allowed to train on the treadmill for half an hour with a special armband, and had sex on another day. Men burned around four calories a minute during intercourse, women three, even at a slow pace. Running was about a third more calories burned. Surprisingly, the longer the sexual intercourse lasted, the higher the energy consumption climbed. After half an hour, it can be equated with running training, according to the researchers.

Changing swimming style: Up until now it was assumed that all sperm have an almost identical technique of locomotion, some are just slower. Now researchers have been able to prove that this is not true. Sperm can attach to other cells for a few seconds, only to be free again afterwards and swim in a different direction. The type and speed of rotation of the sperm head determine the direction in which it goes forward. By switching between different swimming techniques, the sperm threads can also influence the attachment to other cells. Sperm swimming in groups of two to four cells are much faster. This could influence knowledge and techniques related to artificial insemination. (swissmom news ticker, 1.10.14).

Sex protects the prostate: A study by two Canadian universities found that there is a link between the number of sexual partners and the risk of prostate cancer - the more women, the lower the risk of cancer. Men who have slept with more than 20 women have a 30% lower risk of prostate cancer than monogamous or chaste men. Previous studies have shown that the main factor here is regular ejaculations, preferably at least twice a week. This is more likely with changing partners. However, this only applies to heterosexuals. With homosexuals, the risk increases with each additional sexual partner. (Swissmom Newsticker, 26.3.15)
