    Question about conception

    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?

    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.
