Does a woman’s orgasm increase the odds of becoming pregnant?


Hi there,

Good question.

Maybe. It is definitely possible to become pregnant without an orgasm Some studies that show that when a woman has an orgasm during intercourse, she retains more sperm. Some researchers suggest that the contractions the female uterus undergo during orgasm actually create a vacuum that draws semen into the uterus and towards the fallopian tubes where fertilization occurs. However, there are no definitive studies that indicate higher pregnancy rates among women who orgasm during sex.

I hope that helps, please do ask questions below!

Kind regards,
