Though there is no scientifically proven sex position for couples longing to have a baby, research says that different positions affect what goes on inside a woman's body during intercourse

Couples who have been trying to have a baby know that there is no research to back sex position as an assurance of conception.

However, many believe both the missionary and doggy style are the best positions to make a baby as they allow for deep penetration.

Deep penetration causes sperm to land at the cervix, which is the opening of a woman's uterus.

According to research, both these positions allow the penis to reach the area between the vaginal walls and cervix.

Here are 5 sex positions that allow deep penetration, which makes them worth trying if you want to increase your chances of getting pregnant.

Missionary

In this position, "gravity is on your side" according to Tiny Step. This increases the chances of conception because the sperm can naturally find its way to the egg.

Doggy style

Being on all fours as your partner enters you from behind allows sperm to land right beside the cervix, increasing the chances of pregnancy.

Spooning

This sex position is achieved when a woman lies down on her side and intercourse happens from behind. Because it's a relaxed position, it lessens pressure and may cause pregnancy to be more easily achieved.

Scissors

If you want to try this sex position, simply intertwine your legs with your partner's as you engage in your usual intercourse. The proximity and deep penetration is an important factor to help you get pregnant.

On the edge

To achieve this position, lie down on the edge of the bed with your legs apart as your partner kneels in front of you. This ensures deeper penetration than other usual positions.

Aside from this, keeping track of a woman's ovulation is one of the absolute musts for a couple who wants to get pregnant. Make sure to consult a doctor, too, to determine what's best for you on your journey to parenthood.
