Jumping As Pregnancy Prevention  

You may have a lot of questions and concerns surrounding a possible pregnancy. You and your partner might have heard that jumping up and down after sexual intercourse can stop you from conceiving. Perhaps you thought that the movement would prevent sperm from meeting with a fertilized egg. But this action doesn’t necessarily stop a pregnancy from occurring.

Ovulation is typically when women are most fertile. This is when a mature egg is released and made available to sperm for fertilization. If sperm enters and comes into contact with one of your eggs, then it’s possible that conception may happen. So, even if you jump up and down to prevent it from entering your vagina, there’s still a chance that your partner’s sperm can slip inside.

While the odds are generally considered to be low, pre-ejaculate fluid is sometimes released from a man’s penis without him knowing. This can carry small amounts of sperm. So, even before you took measures to attempt to remove it from your body, some of it might have already entered your vagina if you were not using a barrier form of contraception.

I’m Pregnant: What Do I Do?  

Have you received a positive pregnancy test result from failed contraception? it’s understandable that there may be a sense of panic and surprise. A helpful first step is to consider who to reach out to for support. On top of friends or family members, do you have some professional resources in mind that you may want to talk to? This may include a healthcare provider, a counselor, or a pregnancy consultant.

You might have heard that women in your situation have three options available to them: abortion, adoption, and parenting. While you may be aware of these choices and have some inkling of what they may entail, weighing the pros and cons behind each decision can be hard. Finding the right option for you often takes careful contemplation. And it can be helpful to gather accurate information from a reliable resource as you consider which path you might want to pursue.
