Men’s infertility specialist Dr. Paul Turek appears on View From the Bay (KGO TV/Channel 7 San Francisco) with advice on increasing your chances of conceiving. Dr. Turek begins by explaining that a healthy body is needed for healthy conception. His advice includes recommendations to sleep well and maintain lean body weight. Reduce alcohol consumption. Wet heat exposure (hot tubs, saunas) should be used only in moderation. Of course, timing and frequency of intercourse are key since the egg is only available to meet sperm two days per month. Lastly, Dr. Turek dispels the myths about sex positions and conception. As he discusses on the show, there is no “best position” for sex to conceive or to determine the gender of a child.
