Jul 31, 2009
Are you trying to conceive? Then the quality of sex might play even more important role than timing ovulation, experts say.

Sexual satisfaction is often given the second place to calculations and fertility diets when it comes to conception. Many couples claim that their sex life become rigid, scheduled, with no fun when they are trying to conceive. For some of them it may even mean the end of sex life, which makes conception impossible.

Dr Allan Pacey, secretary of the British Fertility Society said that sex for couples should be "as wild and thrilling as it was when they first met". If you really want to boost your chances for conception, then try what fertility specialists call "gourmet sex", which means that each of you will try to ensure your partner's sexual pleasure.

Why passionate sex is important for fertility?

Sex is Good for Health

Numerous studies showed that sex is good for health. Healthy sex life contributes to longevity, improving the immune system, lowering blood pressure and relieving stress. Satisfying sex contributes to heart health, reducing the risk of having heart attack for men. It has a number of emotional and psychological benefits for both partners. Also if you are overweight, which is known to be one of the main obstacles for getting pregnant, sex can become the best weight loss method.

Daily Sex Improves Sperm Quality

The recent research showed that men need to have sex every day during woman's most fertile period to improve the quality of sperm. Earlier it was believed that couples should have sex every other day during fertile window to maintain high sperm count. However, fertility specialists found that having sex every day will reduce DNA damage of sperm, which means that it will considerably improve sperm quality.  

Better Sex Boosts Sperm Count

Passionate sex also is known to increase sperm count and thus your chances for conception. Men who are more sexually stimulated ejaculate more and healthier sperm. Generally, men ejaculate around 250 million sperm during sex. But some extra pleasurable stimulation will result in 50 percent more ejaculate, which eventually will have higher quality.

Orgasm Helps Sperm Meet an Egg

If you want to improve your chances for conception, ensure a woman's orgasm. Women, who enjoy sex and achieve orgasm, also contribute to better chances for conception. The contractions of the muscles in the pelvic area during orgasm helps sperm travel up to the cervix and further to the uterus and fallopian tubes, where it can meet and egg and fertilize it.
