Does laying there or holding your butt up after sex REALLY help you conceive?


This is a question I keep pondering.
I keep hearing that you are more likely to conceive when your hubby is on top, and if you don't let any "leak out." i keep hearing that women hold there butt/legs up for 20-30 minutes after and that helps them fall preggers. But, is that just a myth? I usually get up right after sex and stuff leaks out (TMI) and I don't like to just lay there. Am I messing up my chances?!

Yes, I totally understand! I've had two miscarriages, with my second pregnancy I held my butt up after for 20 minutes...so I don't know if it has any truth or not! Hmmm, hope someone can come along and shed some light on this.

Apparently if it's going to get there it will. I try not to get up straight away but I too am doing everything to try and help.

There's no harm in it I suppose.

Yes, I've read on a few sites that sperm gets there on it's own and semen is what is leaking out...not sperm? I don't know if that's true or not, but I suppose there is no harm in laying there. I read someone that you should hold your legs up to your chest, that's what I'm going to do I guess. Its just so annoying to do it for 20 minutes! LOL.

I've heard that it actually can do harm. I heard that there is only so much room up there, so forcing something to "stay in" can cause a UTI. I actually read this today on BnB, I will need to find out more info and post a link.

I did this the first month trying for #1, put a pillow under my bum and knees up for bout 20 mins, after when i got up stuff still came out just not as much as normal, i think it helped us get preg first time trying. My midwife at the time asked how long we had been trying, i said first month and she also thought that prob had a good part in it happening so soon, i suppose it helps the sperm along and doesn't tire them out as much having to swim across rather than uphill. gravity and all that..


to everyone xxx
