Many women have heard the old wives tale about putting your legs up in the air after having sex in order to boost your chances of getting pregnant. But is it really true? Doctors and experts alike say that holding your legs up after sex to increase chances of getting pregnant is just a myth.
They say that most of the sperm actually make it to the cervix within seconds of ejaculation, and anything that leaks out after that is just fluid. There is really no scientific reason to leave your legs up after sex. If you want to remain in a horizontal position after intercourse for around 30 minutes or so in hopes of letting the sperm have a longer chance of getting to the egg, that is perfectly fine, but know that it has not been scientifically proven.
You can also leave a pillow under your hips after sex as well if you wish. However, just know that this is not a guarantee, and you can do it to make yourself feel better, but don’t but too much faith in this method.
