Trying to get pregnant. Having intercourse during fertile period. How long should I lay down after intercourse?

I am trying to conceive from last 2-3 months (age 30 yrs). We have intercourse during the fertile period, i lay for 10 mins after that but still its not working out. I got few questions like - do i need to lay down after intercourse and if yes for how long. There is always leak and i am not sure if sperms are getting in there and reaching to where it can conceive. - lets say if i lay for the prescribed time, after that can i pee and clean myself. I don t feel comfortable until i clean myself If there are any other suggestions, please advise. Thanks.

You should know the position of your uterus to take some precautions after the intercourse. It is advisable to lie still for at least half-an-hour on your back if you have an anteverted uterus and on your abdomen in the prone position if you have a retroverted uterus. Do not wash your soft parts with strong solutions as they are going to harm the sperms deposited, just use plain water if you need it. Good luck.
