When you decide to “pull the goalie,” to put it crudely, you’re gonna get a lot of advice. Some of it will seem pretty straight forward, like have sex when you’re ovulating and stay horizontal for awhile afterwards. But then there will be those pearls of wisdom that are straight up bonkers. Like, how flexible am I supposed to be, anyways??
We posed the question “What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever tried or heard of someone trying to get pregnant?” on theBERRY’s social media, and you guys had some incredibly unique advice.
1. katie.elizabethhhh’s friend is never going to get rid of that scent.
friend thought if you used lavender oil as lube she would get pregnant
2. lizz_bee must be a yogi.
did an actual headstand for a little bit afterward. Didn’t hear about it anywhere , I just thought that I’d let gravity do some of the work. And it worked!
3. countrygirl.az has some scandalous friends.
A friend of mine secretly poked holes in her husbands condoms and “surprise” got pregnant.
4. Wait, elissadayne. WHAT?
Trouble conceiving…tried a lot….took mucinex and it worked. Twice. And tried the PH levels to have a boy and it worked.
5. mrs.sheaday is gonna have to get us the name of that lube.
My friend used this lube that’s supposed to make the sperm stick inside of you and it worked
6. beewitte16 had some time to kill.
Had a doctor tell me to keep the penis inside me for 10 minutes post ejaculation and then lie with my hips raised for an hour…he started practicing in ’64 though so the info might be a little outdated
7. kegpegleg must be pretty coordinated.
Had a Filipino lady tell me to stand on my head because that’s what she did for her one and only child.
8. ps_itspaleo is really close to her MIL.
Do it from behind and then just lay in bed for awhile to have a boy.. Boy sperms aren’t as strong of swimmers so if you lay horizontal they have a better chance to out-swim the girls.” — Advice from my mother-in-law
9. LOL, true, narnianstars.
I always tell people to get drunk and have sex. Seems to work for a lot of unplanned pregnancies.
10. First time we’ve ever heard that, angiebeme74.
Doggy style always makes boys.
11. mandydee1985 trusted her bedding for leverage.
definitely laid there for 10 minutes, face down, pillow under my hips… lol.
12. hamrski suggests this for breakfast.
Eat banana skins blended in a dark chocolate smoothie .. 3 children ….. no more smoothies
13. sarahmaria14 is also trying her luck in the OTC meds aisle.
I’ve hear mucinex and baby aspirin will help. No luck yet though! Trying the hand stand next
14. Gina Rose has quite a lot of stamina.
having sex only once a day.
15. rider47201 has all the answers.
Whatever it takes to de-stress yourself. Stress in a woman is the worst thing for getting pregnant. Take a 2 week vacation away from the father to be that you have chosen, then one the night you “reunite”, do so out of town, with ZERO DESTRACTIONS! NO EXCEPTIONS! THEN, drink wine, smoke a blunt or 2, go to the sex club, whatever it takes to get you both “in the mood”, then do EVERYTHING you BOTH have ever found to be a turn on, no holds barred. It works, EVERYTIME!
