I have been married for a year now. During sexual intercourse, my husband prefers me being on top. I would like to know whether this could have affected my chances of becoming pregnant. Is it necessary that the male partner be on top to ensure conception?

In brief: Pleasure Positions

Conception doesn't depend position as long as ejaculation is deep in vagina.
Be sure you communicate your preferences so sex is mutually beneficial.
