One fear that women tend to have when they are trying to conceive is that the sperm will not stay in. Typically, when a woman stands up after intercourse, semen will fall out of her body because of gravity. For this reason, many women feel as though they should make an attempt to keep the sperm in.
While this may seem like a reasonable thought, there is actually no need to go to extra measures to keep the sperm in. The sperm will be able to remain in the body even without the semen inside as well. However, it can be a good idea to lie still for about 15 minutes after having intercourse.

This can also help women who have a tilted uterus. Research shows that this can help a woman have a better chance of conceiving when she has a tilted uterus.
Finally, make sure that you are tracking your ovulation cycle by using an ovulation predictor kit or a basal thermometer. These are great devices to use so that you are having the best chance of becoming pregnant when you are ovulating.
