Does increasing the amount of sperm in the vagina (in the same day) ultimately increase the chances of conceiving during your fertile window?
No fixed time: Position is important: be on your back with a pillow or pillows under your hips.

I suggest maintaining that position for at least 5 minutes. Remember: "outercourse" is just as important as intercourse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe just a little: Be married first. Then decide whether or not to have children right away. If "yes", stop birth control methods, and be sure to have sex once or twice a day during the most fertile days. The fertile days are about 5 days before ovulation, through 2 days after ovulation. One can estimate that ovulation happens 14 days BEFORE the start of the next period (easier to do if having regular periods). ...Read more
