HTHGS: How to become Pregnant (written by Alex Robboy, LCSW, CAS)

Ask Alex,
I have been married to my wife for four years and she still has not gotten pregnant. I would appreciate it, if you could advise me of any method or position, which may be more effective.
Regards Kevin,

Dear Kevin,
Given that I have no idea what you and your wife have already tried, it is hard to offer very specific suggestions to help you in your particular situation. In general, I would recommend the following: (these suggestions are not being offered in any particular order)

  • Have intercourse no more than every 48 hours. At first, not having intercourse three times a day, every day may sound counter-intuitive, but it takes up to 72 hrs to produce the full capacity of sperm in the ejaculate (I am using the term 'produce' slightly inaccurately). Increasing the amount of sperm in the ejaculate will increase the likelihood of fertilization.
  • Have intercourse during ovulation. Ovulation occurs 14 days before menstruation
  • During ejaculation, the woman is more likely to conceive if she on bottom. Afterwards, she may want to remain in this position, with her hips slightly elevated, thus increasing the likelihood of fertilization.
  • Stop trying to get pregnant. Often, the very act of trying to get pregnant causes stress. For many folks, this stress acts can deter pregnancy from occurring.
  • Heat can decrease the sperm count. Therefore, stop using hot tubs.
  • Furthermore, the man should remove his tighty-whiteys and replace it with non-restrictive underwear, like boxers. This facilitates the testes ability to self-regulate it's temperature (again, heat decreases sperm count). Having just said all this, you may benefit from a consultation with your doctor. There could be something wrong with either the sperm or the egg. With the help of some medically prescribed tests, some common problems could be identified and if need be, treated. The reason I am recommending a medical exam for each of you is that four years of frequent intercourse (2-3 times a week) is a long time to have been unsuccessful at trying to get pregnant. Usually within one year, most couples are successful at getting pregnant. Ruling out medical complications could clarify the situation.

  Our Philosophy sex is like dancing, it changes every time. It depends on culture, atmosphere and mood. Sometimes it is done alone, with a partner or in a group. It can be fast and hard or slow and soft. Sex is a combination of non-verbal negotiation and verbal cues: a scream, a twitch of the toes, or a flush of the face. There is no one 'right' way to move, only what feels good to all those involved.
