Question about conception
Bianka79 posted:
My husband and I have recently started trying to conceive.
I have been following my ovulation calender, and we have had sex during my fertile times.
After ejaculation, I layed still for 20 minutes. (I read somewhere that it increases your chances of pregnancy)
When I stood up most of the semen had leaked out of me.
My question is: is there a chance that any sperm had been able to make it through?
mrs62610 responded:
Yes! It will leak out when you get up, even if you stay lying down all night. The sperm still goes where it should, you just don't need the rest of it.

I know from experience, because usually after we BD I don't get up, I stay on my back for at least 15 minutes then I go to sleep. In the morning I have some leak out and I just wear a pantiliner. Sorry, tmi.

Thank you for your response.
We have only been trying for a few months. Last one didn't take.
I'll know in a few weeks
