According to scientific studies conducted in China, having intercourse only once a night is not enough for couples who have problems in conceiving naturally. As a result of scientific research, it is recommended to have sex twice a night to get pregnant. In fact, studies say that if you have sex twice in three hours, you will get pregnant.
According to new scientific findings, having sex for the second time within three hours a night increases the chances of pregnancy.
Gynecology Obstetrics and IVF Specialist Op. Dr. Betül Görgen gave the following information about the details of the research conducted in China:
“Researchers at Shengjing Hospital in China took sperm samples from 250 men a few hours after the last ejaculation and a few days later. The volumes and movements of the sperm in different samples were compared and the differences were recorded.
During research, it was revealed that the proteins that increase sperm motility are much higher in the new ejaculation taken shortly after the first ejaculation. In addition, it was determined that the proteins required for the sperm to adhere to the egg surface were higher.
It also works in IVF!
In the second phase of the study, 500 couples prepared for IVF were evaluated. It was questioned how soon after the last ejaculation the sperm samples were given.
It was determined that the probability of pregnancy increased in couples who underwent IVF with sperm given in less than 180 minutes after the first ejaculation. Because the sperm that ensure fertilization are the fastest swimming sperms. It was found that sperm collected within 180 minutes of the first ejaculation swim faster and have a greater capacity to produce pregnancy. This feature increases the chances of pregnancy formation and live birth both naturally and via IVF. The longer the sperm stay in the testis before ejaculation, the more susceptible they are to DNA damage.”
The results of the study were published in the Journal Molecular & Cellular Proteomics.
