The theory goes that doing handstands helps the sperm get to where it needs to go and do what it needs to do. Gravity and all that. I usually just lie down but I am seriously thinking of giving handstanding a try. Is there any evidence that it actually works? How long are you supposed to remain in a handstand for? Would 10 minutes be enough?
This made me giggle! I did elevate my bum with pillows after DTD when trying to conceive DC2 and he was conceived the first month. Stayed bum up for maybe 20 mins! But DC1 was a one-time-no-contraception accident and DC3 also conceived first month so I'm not sure what my anecdote tells you! No harm in giving it a trying if you can do handstands safely!!
I think no. But i do think lying down with a pillow under your bum is fairly common. My thoughts are that it can't do any harm however i do wonder if the sperm are such poor quality that they require gravity to travel then how successful is it going to be further down the line if the sperm actually penetrates the egg, it may mean unneccessary heartache. But i know the heartache of ttc and also the lengths us ladies go to.
Just buy pregnacare before conception pills and it adds to fertility and sorts or gets your body ready etc, I caught within a month of using, read the reviews, one woman had been trying for years to conceive and couldn't, she tried pregnacare and got pregnant in under 3 month. About £10 at boots, superdrug etc, 30 tablets per pack
Are you seri about Pregnacare? I thought it was just a multivitamin. Started taking it recently! Have been lying down with my legs elevated, just to make sure nothing spills back out. Handstands, no...
I found out I had a tilted cervix or something so nearly always do it with a pillow under bum. When trying to conceive I sometimes used another pillow and put my legs up. Don't know whether it made any difference. But after trying for ages we eventually ended up with two kids and I felt I was doing all I could as an older parent trying to conceive. Had my first at 38 and second at 39. Good luck op.
