    Is it possible to get pregnant if ejaculation happens near vaginal opening? TTC, but don't know how to have intercourse.


    I feel only an inch of his penis is inside my vagina, but I am not sure. Is it normal to not know this?

    And, he doesn't know if his penis is fully inside. How deep should it go? Must penis reach till cervix? Will I know somehow?

    Still,can I get pregnant at this depth?

    Also, must the foreskin be retracted before or during intercourse for impregnation?

    Problem is, my husband has problems with erection. Once erect, he needs MANY strokes to ejaculate. Sometimes, he does not ejaculate and simply tires off. Is this okay?

    Hi,


    Hubby and I are trying to conceive our first baby too. Good luck!


    As for your question, ive ready that the penis really needs to be inserted up toward the cervix for a better chance of falling pregnant. It does depend on size (of both woman and male) but also ive found if im really wet down below i dont feel it as much as if i am dryer. My husband normally can tell and will just move until he's fully in so to speak.
    Sometimes I have felt it too, just like a pressure deep inside.


    As for if you can fall pregnant with sperm near the entry, i dont think the chances are as high?? hopefully someone else can answer that for you as i'd be curious to know too!
