Just how much sex does it take to make a baby?


It’s one of the great questions all couples trying to conceive at some stage ask: just how many times should we be having sex? Now, parenting site ChannelMum.com claims they might just have the answer.

According to a study conducted by ChannelMum, couples trying to conceive a baby have sex an average of 78 times before becoming pregnant.

The study of 1,194 parents revealed that 10 per cent of couples trying to conceive had sex 15 to 20 times each month, while five per cent of couples did the wild thing almost daily.

So is there a magic number of times couples had sex before falling pregnant?

yes. The study revealed that couples who successfully conceived had sex on average, 13 times a month.

Turns out, the number 13 may be unlucky for some, but is lucky for mums (to be).
