Conception and Fertility Myths Busted

Conception and Fertility Myths Busted
Does sexual position influence the possibility of conceiving a child? Can a woman get pregnant faster if she takes aspirin? Is it true that one should abstain from sex for three days before conception? These and other questions about getting pregnant will be answered by below.

  1. Infertility Diagnosis or Keep Trying to Conceive?
  2. It is widely believed that if one’s attempts to get pregnant have been a failure for three months in a row, it indicates serious health problems and possible infertility. But it is not true. According to medical statistics, most couples cannot conceive a child during their first, second, or even third attempt. On average, the couple needs five and a half months in order to achieve a positive result. We cannot but mention that the official medical position is as follows: it is pointless to begin diagnosing one’s reproductive health until after 12 months of regular attempts.

  3. Sex Position and Fertility
  4. Certain sex positions theoretically increase the chance of conceiving a child, but direct evidence of this fact has not yet been studied. Sexologists admit that new original positions may contribute to success if they become an additional source of stimulation and excitement. It is in the case of a passionate and sincere contact between the partners that the probability of conception increases.

  5. TV to Help Get Pregnant
  6. Last year’s research, conducted by social services in four main cities in the UK has shown that joint watching of erotic films significantly increases the partners’ attraction to each other. And any increased desire ultimately contributes to a more rapid conception.

  7. Do I need Orgasm to Get Pregnant?
  8. Despite the available data on the high probability of passionate couples’ success, the necessity of female orgasm during the “planned” love act is under question. We can only assert with confidence that male orgasm is a must for the conception.

  9. Cold Feet and Conception
  10. One of the few true facts about conception deals with the temperature regime for the man. Indeed, too warm and tight clothing, underwear, and frequent taking alcohol, hot tubs, and saunas create unfavorable conditions for the viability of sperm. This does not mean that potential fathers should not use hot water or run barefoot in the snow.

  11. 3 Days of Sexual Continence Up the Chances to Conceive
  12. Maturation of sperm cells is a subtle process which takes much time. The theory says that making love to conceive a child should not occur more than once in two or three days. In fact, it turns out that this is not true. Statistical data obtained by the scientists from the University of Sydney in Australia, 2008, indicate that the more often contacts in a couple occur, the sooner the couple tends to have a child. The Australians have calculated a formula for a successful fertile period: one day is one sexual intercourse.

  13. Boy or Girl?
  14. Those, who sincerely believe in one of the brightest and most unscientific myths that making love on certain days can help you successfully plan the sex of your future baby, will be disappointed. Exactly the same success will be brought by “choosing” a son or a daughter with the help of a coin, playing with it on heads or tails.

  15. Nutrition and Getting Pregnant Myths
  16. A number of misconceptions regard certain products. There is ubiquitous information on how the use of mint can visibly reduce the likelihood of conception. In fact, this can only happen if the mint gets into the diet as a cocktail Mojito component. The experiments of German doctors dealing with the problems of IVF, demonstrated that regular consumption of alcohol reduces the probability of conception by an average of 40%.

  17. Aspirin and Conceiving a Baby
  18. An interesting, though not completely unambiguous fact is that taking aspirin before an intercourse significantly increases the likelihood of conception. According to the recently published data of the studies conducted at the University of Buffalo and the University of Utah (both in the USA) in 2007, the daily intake of about 100 mg of aspirin increases the chances of pregnancy by more than 20%. Despite the prestige of American scientists, doctors strongly advise against having experiments with drugs.

  19. Cough to Help Spermatozoa Reach the Goal
  20. This strange statement will be true only when cough is treated with mucus-thinning drugs. The fact is that some drugs diminish the viscosity of mucus, not only in the respiratory tract, but also in one’s reproductive tracts, thus helping the sperm reach the goal. But, of course, one should not take medication only for the sake of it.
