Trying to Conceive Question
Little_Confused posted:
Hi, I'm newly married and not exactly sure about some things. I'm a small lady, and my husband is much larger than me in all senses. We've been trying to conceive, but his ejaculations do not all stay inside of me - would this be a problem for conception? Is this normal or am I reading too much into this? Thanks for your advice.

One the average, each ejaculate in a healthy male contains upwards of 66 million sperm. It takes just one to fertilize an egg. Ejaculate is also a liquid so while most will run out of a females body this does not impede conception.

Along with what Gail said, what is actually coming out is the semen which is the vehicle for the sperm. By the time the semen leaks out, the sperm are well on their way into your uterus.
