Legs in the air!!

Silly Question..

Do you think it really helps popping your legs up in the air after BDing and if you do hw long do you do it for?

I've been doing this the last few times after a friend said she always did it when she was trying for her baby, just wondered if anyone does it to?!

Well,I think not necessarily 'legs in the air' but definitely lie flat for half an hour to give the swimmers time to erm, swim!

It's supposed to counteract the effects of gravity no? Might be worth a try!

I have done it in the past myself too blush

There was something in the papers recently about how it doesn't make any difference. I can't remember where. It said even though it feels like everything might run out, there's enough left there to do the job.

Hummm I think i will carry on doing it for abit and will hope towards a lucky month, annoys me that you get up after and it all runs out anyway!!!! Erghhh blush

I have read that lying still is a good thing, at least for women having IVF.

Hi All

considering its my second month of TTC i'm willing to try anything. How stupid was I to think that I would just get pregnant in the first month like I did with DS1 11 years ago!!!!

I will definately be trying anything and everything.

Hi All

Belgianbun I must admit I was so naive to think it would happen so quickly. Im 33 had DS when I was 22. I guess I need to chill out and relax regrading TTC. Thanks for the advice will keep desperation in check it could be a while

Its another myth that gets banded about from time to time. Legs in the air post intercourse makes no difference whatsoever.

I did it when I was trying and nothing came out afterwards, where normally loads did... Sorry about TMI... blush

So, may have no effect at all, but what's the point of taking the risk when lying down with your hips slightly raised for half an hour may (just may) get you out of doing the washing up!! grin

I was advised to do this (by gynae consultant) as my cervix is very tilted. Not so much 'legs in the air' as 'bum on a pillow'

Hello all,
I'm new on here!
I am trying the "legs in the air" but it is more "bum on pillow" and I have noticed that it keeps more in so hope its helping somehow
