  • Does this work?

    Straight after sex if you elevate your legs for a few minutes does this improve the chances of getting pregnant if you do this during your ovulation period?Or is it an old wives tale?

  • After taking a class this past year on Anatomy and physiology, my professor actually said that gravity gives the sperm a better chance to fertilize the egg. This would happen when lifting your leggs or laying down after sex. So, I guess it's not an old wives tale! However, you might want to get a professional opinion on this one!

    • Hmmm... I don't know for certain either, but I have been told that it's an old wives tale. Not sure.

        I think you should wait to see if you develop a sexual spark. That would be the time to be completely open and reveal it.
