Sex positions for getting pregnant

Trying for a baby is exciting, and it's also a great excuse to have some extra intimate time with your man.

But while we love any excuse to snuggle up under the covers, when you're trying for a baby, you also want every time to count. Yes, it's all about effective sex (kinky, we know).

Women are always swapping tips on the best sex positions for getting pregnant - missionary, doggy style, spooning - everyone's got an opinion.

But believe it or not, there isn't actually any official research out there proving which positions are best.

We do know a few things though - you want a position that's going to make penetration as deep as possible, and you don't want his sperm to have to work against gravity (could this be any sexier?!)

Sadly, despite the old myth, women don't have to orgasm to get pregnant. 

So while there are no official sex positions for getting one in the oven there's no harm in trying. 

Good luck!
