SPERM FRIENDLY: The use of artificial lubricants should be avoided while trying to conceive. They may be harmful to sperm. Some women swear by using raw egg-white as a lubricant, although it may pose a risk for infection if it is contaminated. Drinking plenty of water and taking Robitussin and/or EPO may help you produce more cervical mucus.
STAY PRONE (LYING DOWN): Some women suggest staying in bed with a pillow under their hips or legs raised in the bicycle position for at least 20 minutes after sex. Others say it makes no difference if you get up right away. The choice is yours! If you stay prone (lying down) for 20 minutes after intercourse, the only thing that "spills out" is seminal fluid and abnormal sperm. Normal sperm is ejaculated into the vagina and immediately travels into the cervix (safe haven from the acidic environment of the vagina). Seminal fluid is the medium that carries the sperm out of the body. Abnormal/malformed sperm are not able to advance through the net-like mucus (ferning) which we know as Egg White Cervical Mucus (EWCM).
