‘What’s extra worrying is when sufferers expertise erectile dysfunction as that is usually a signal of an underlying coronary heart downside,’ added Dr Knapton.

The identical guidelines don’t apply if to the adulterous, nonetheless.

However whereas there’s completely no want to face in your head, you possibly can assist the method alongside.

‘A girl’s uterus is bent barely forwards so in case you tilt your pelvis upward a bit, say by placing a pillow underneath your decrease again as you lie down, the sperm can have much less of a distance to journey,’ says Dr Downey.

‘Which means they’re successfully travelling downhill and wish much less vitality to get to the place they wish to go.’

However why quarter-hour? Put up-sex sperm should get into the womb, journey throughout it and by means of the fallopian tubes, she explains.

‘I might really counsel that mendacity down for half an hour after intercourse could be higher, to guarantee this course of has sufficient time to occur,’ advises Dr Downey.

There isn’t a time at which a girl between the ages of 15 and 50 can’t get pregnant

There isn’t a time at which a girl between the ages of 15 and 50 can’t get pregnant, says Dr Gillian Lockwood, advisor obstetrician and gynaecologist and medical director of Midland’s Fertility Companies.

Ideally, the window of alternative for implantation when conception can happen, is a short three to 4 day time which happens spherical about cycle days 18 or 19, taking cycle day one as the primary day of the interval, she says.

However egg launched throughout ovulation has a life span of probably about 4 or 5 days days and wholesome sperm have fertilising capability for as much as 4 days, she asserts.

‘For this reason we hear about a lot of ladies who’ve thought, ‘Oh, it’s the tail finish of my interval. I’m completely secure”, however really, they get pregnant.’

 a lot of ladies have thought, ‘Oh, it’s the tail finish of my interval. I’m completely secure”, however really, they get pregnant.’

Moreover, in line with Dr Gabrielle Downey, post-pregnancy you is perhaps at elevated danger.

Throughout being pregnant, all of your hormone ranges are excessive typically, besides those that stimulate your ovaries to make eggs are low, she explains. However this adjustments.

‘After you might have had the child, the mind tries to stimulate the ovaries once more to make eggs so it could induce one other being pregnant, so it sends out robust hormonal indicators to the eggs to say ‘Proper. Begin working,’’ she says.

‘The impact is so robust that it’s nearly like having fertility remedy so don’t use having your interval as contraception.’

Complications are excuse to not indulge: MYTH (…and intercourse would possibly assist)

intercourse triggered the discharge of endorphins, the physique’s pure painkillers

In ladies, orgasm would possibly really assist the ache of a headache cancelling out the age-old ‘Not tonight darling…’ excuse.

The truth is, in analysis revealed in 2013, a workforce of neurologists from the College of Munster, Germany discovered that over half of migraine victims who had intercourse throughout an episode skilled an enchancment in signs.

Staggeringly, considered one of 5 completed with no ache in any respect – a distinction seen in male victims in specific.

The researchers theorised that intercourse triggered the discharge of endorphins, the physique’s pure painkillers, by means of the central nervous system, which might scale back or remove a headache.

Certainly, in line with Dr Beverley Whipple, the neurophysicist from Rutgers College who found the G-spot within the late 70s (on the entrance wall of the vagina, 5cm from the entrance), having this space stimulated to orgasm elevated ladies’s ache threshold by 106 per cent.

3. Individuals with dangerous backs ought to keep away from strenuous intercourse: MYTH

A staggering 4 out of 5 individuals expertise no less than one episode of debilitating low again ache of their lifetimes and as much as 84 per cent of males and 73 per cent of ladies with the situation report a lower within the frequency of intercourse.

However analysis revealed in October final yr within the journal Backbone discovered that sure positions might make intercourse much less painful for victims – relying on the kind of again ache you might have.

Ladies who get low again ache after they arch their backs or lie on their stomachs skilled much less ache within the missionary place, the researchers discovered.

For males with again ache (particularly if it harm after they touched their toes or sat for too lengthy), doggy model was the perfect place and adopting a ‘hip-hinging movement as an alternative of thrusting with their spines’ might additionally reduce the ache.

‘One of many greatest causes of ache for decrease again ache victims or these with slipped discs is ahead bending,’

In accordance with physiotherapist Tim Allardyce of Surrey Physio, doggy model is certainly  place for low again ache in males – with one caveat.

Erotic moments of couple in mattress

‘They’ve to make sure they’re on their knees quite than standing up,’ he explains.

‘One of many greatest causes of ache for decrease again ache victims or these with slipped discs is ahead bending,’ he says.

‘By kneeling the again stays in a secure place, sustaining its pure curve which is able to minimise the ache throughout intercourse.’

If the person is standing then again (with the lady on all fours on the mattress) he’ll usually should bend his knees a bit, spherical his again and lean ahead to get the fitting angle, Allardyce says. This may improve low again ache or pressure an current harm.

He agrees that the missionary is sweet for girls with decrease again ache because it retains her backbone on impartial, that’s, in a slight S-shaped from the decrease to higher backbone, thus minimising ache or additional harm.

When individuals begin doing issues like having intercourse over sofas or in automobiles and showers, they usually want to get their our bodies into tight, sophisticated environments

Kneeling throughout doggy model or girl on high may additionally work for girls – so long as she doesn’t arch her again an excessive amount of.

‘The primary factor is to maintain that pure curve within the backbone and never spherical or arch.’

What ladies ought to keep away from is bending totally forwards with the person behind them, as this places an excessive amount of pressure on the decrease discs of the backbone and will result in harm, says Allardyce.

Whereas there’s no purpose these with again ache must keep away from having intercourse, some issues are simply asking for hassle, he asserts.

‘When individuals begin doing like having intercourse over sofas or in automobiles and showers, they usually want to get their our bodies into tight, sophisticated environments and discover themselves aggravating an current again downside or creating an entire new one,’ he warns.

So what’s essentially the most back-unfriendly intercourse transfer? ‘Undoubtedly a person attempting to choose somebody up – actually – in opposition to a wall, within the bathe or into mid-air,’ says Allardyce.

‘A person attempting to choose somebody up although, is very dangerous for the again’

4. If you happen to pee earlier than intercourse you scale back your possibilities of an STI: MYTH

Round half of all ladies and one in 2000 males will develop a urinary tract an infection (UTI) annually, in line with the NHS.

UTIs develop when the bladder turns into contaminated, often by micro organism which mostly enter by means of the urethra.

Intercourse is a standard reason behind UTIs in younger ladies of their 20s, says Dr Zaki Almallah, advisor urologist at BMI Hospital in Edgbaston.

 Peeing earlier than intercourse ‘is the primary reason behind post-coital urinary tract infections…

However it additionally impacts older ladies. One research in 2008 revealed within the Journal of Normal Inside Drugs additionally discovered that sexual activity was additionally related to the danger of UTI in postmenopausal ladies too.

Whereas most of us are instructed to pee earlier than and after intercourse to keep away from UTIs, that is solely half true, say specialists.

Certainly, in accordance one main New York urologist Dr David Kaufman, peeing earlier than intercourse ‘is the primary reason behind post-coital urinary tract infections.’

In accordance with Kaufman, UTIs may be induced when throughout intercourse, micro organism can get pushed into the urethra. However not urinating earlier than intercourse means you should have sufficient saved within the bladder to create a robust stream, making it extra possible that micro organism shall be flushed.

Whereas Mr Almallah says there’s no actual proof for Dr Kaufman’s principle, he says there may be no must urinate earlier than intercourse in case you don’t must, as it would don’t have any impact on stopping a post-intercourse UTI. However urinating afterwards may help.

Micro organism that trigger UTIs often reside naturally within the space referred to as the perineum – between the anus, vagina and urethra – and intercourse can transport micro organism from these areas into the bladder by means of the pipe of the urethra.

‘Urinating after intercourse means you’re flushing out any micro organism that has lodged throughout intercourse into the urethra, which is the supply of this transport of micro organism into the bladder, thus serving to minimise your possibilities of a post-sex UIT,’ Mr Almallah explains.

Intercourse and orgasm can induce early labour: MYTH

Theoretically, intercourse can induce labour, however the cervix must be prepared, explains Dr Downey. Semen incorporates hormones referred to as prostaglandins (which come from the person’s prostate gland) which may soften the cervix and stimulate contractions.

Artificial types of these are used medically to induce labour, which is why – theoretically – it’s potential that intercourse could hasten labour. However provided that you’re near your due date.

‘Your cervix has to ripen and be receptive to prostaglandins and this solely occurs close to the finish of your being pregnant,’ Dr Downey says. ‘In case your cervix isn’t prepared, having intercourse at 20 weeks received’t make you go into early labour.’

 In case you are having twins, are at elevated danger of an infection or anticipating a untimely child, it’s possible you’ll be suggested to keep away from intercourse throughout half or all of your being pregnant

Having mentioned that, intercourse could induce Braxton Hicks contractions, attributable to the ache from tightening of the uterine muscle tissues felt usually within the second or third trimester and typically mistaken for labour pains.

‘Something that stimulates motion within the uterus may cause Braxton Hicks – together with intercourse – however the distinction shall be that they have a tendency to solely final 20-30 seconds and can not often cease you from doing what you’re doing, which is a inform story signal you’re in labour’.

Plus, actual labour pains begin and get progressively worse and extra frequent, whereas Braxton Hicks are typically short-lived, she explains.

There are caveats nonetheless.

In case your midwife or advisor have mentioned your membranes have ruptured (when a tear develops within the fluid-filled bag that surrounds the child), when you’ve got low-lying placenta (often detectable at your 20 week scan), in case you are having twins, are at elevated danger of an infection or anticipating a untimely child, it’s possible you’ll be suggested to keep away from intercourse throughout half or all of you being pregnant, Dr Downey explains.
