Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Trying to conceive naturally?
Looking to get pregnant faster?

Dr. Natalie Crawford, MD – board certified OBGYN and REI reviews one of the top questions she get asks as a fertility doctor about getting pregnant: what about sex? This is this information you need if you are trying to get pregnant and want to optimize your chances of getting pregnant naturally each month.

Topics covered include:
1. When should you have sex to get pregnant?
2. How do you detect ovulation?
3. How often should you have sex?
4. Does position matter when trying to get pregnant?
5. Does lube help or hurt when you are tying to get pregnant?
6. Do you need to put your legs up after sex?
7. Is it ok to pee after sex if you are trying to get pregnant?

*DISCLAIMER: I am a doctor but not YOUR doctor. Infertility is trying to conceive for 1 year or more without pregnancy (if under age 35) and trying for 6 months or more if you are over the age of 35. If your periods are not regular, you should seek medical evaluation with your gynecologist or fertility doctor regardless of how long you have been trying to conceive.
