Infertility

Fertile Days.

01/12/2009

Question:

I have few questions could you please answer them:

- What are the best days to participate in intercourse for pregnancy? - Is it necessary to keep the gap of 48 hours in intercourse if you want to have Pregnancy. - To become pregnant is a climax from both of the partners required? - What is the most suitable position in intercourse for Pregnancy?

Answer:

First, it is not necessary for the female partner to achieve orgasm in order for pregnancy to occur.  In addition, there is no position which is "best" for conception, although the missionary position, might allow the semen to remain in the vagina for a longer period of time.

 Women usually ovulate around 2 weeks before their expected period.  Therefore, if your periods occur every 28 days, you would ovulate around day 14, plus or minus a couple of days.  Therefore, if you were trying to "time" intercourse and your periods were every 28 days, you should try every 2 days, from day 11 to day 17.  More frequent intercourse (< 2 days) may decrease sperm counts during that time period.
