How To prime your body for pregnancy by having s.ex regularly


Should you be doing it all day, every day for optimal chances of having a baby? Will that quickie five minutes before you leave work make a difference? Is it best if you both find jobs where you can work from home, strip naked and bone 24/7? Yes – if we’re to believe recent findings.

The findings relied on data from a study of 30 female participants, all with similar lifestyles, barring one defining factor – their sex lives. Half of them were actively having sex at the time (and using some form of birth control, as none were trying to get pregnant) and the other half went without.

But given this research didn’t take into account conception, illness or infection, is it really accurate and can frequent sex help you along the way to having a baby? Fertility expert, Emma Cannon, encourages her clients to get jiggy regularly because it can improve sperm quality. ‘It is important for couples to have sex throughout the month and not just target ovulation,’ she tells ‘This is because it is healthier for sperm to turn over regularly, which is achieved through ejaculating regularly. Many couples make the mistake of just having sex around the fertile window, which is very variable and hard to pinpoint accurately; by doing so they may also be impacting on the quality of the sperm. ‘With couples having frozen embryo transfers, I always encourage them to have sex before 8am in the morning of transfer and the morning after transfer; research suggests that substances in sperm may prime the woman’s body aiding implantation of the embryo.’
