Chief Alhassan Amadu, the Northern Regional Director of the National Population Council, has said rising cases of infertility in the country were not medically induced but as a result of wrong sexual positions being adopted by couples.
Chief Amadu, a former tutor at the Tamale Nurses and Midwifery Training College, said sexual positions such as hanging up, woman on top of man amongst others weakened the ability of the sperm to travel to its rightful destination to fertilize a womanís egg to cause pregnancy.
He said this when addressing a seminar on relationships and reproductive health in Tamale on Monday organised by the Women Commissionerís Office of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Tamale Campus.
The seminar, which was sponsored by the Ghana Developing Communities Association, an NGO amongst other institutions, formed part of initiatives of the Women Commissionerís Office aimed at helping to find solutions to challenges facing ladies at the university
Chief Amadu said different sexual positions might be a source of excitement for couples but could not guarantee them pregnancy.
He, therefore, advised that women should lie in a supine position to keep them in an anatomical level during sexual intercourse to ensure pregnancy.
He also cautioned against too much sex saying it rendered the sperm immature to impregnate a woman.
Chief Amadu said there was the need for safe motherhood and appealed to women to seek early medical attention when pregnant.
