My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about 6 months now and have had no luck. When my husband ejaculates some of "it" falls out of me. Is this why I am not getting pregnant?

It may be an issue, but the best bet is to stay still for a while afterwards. When you lay on your back, your uterus is naturally tilted to promote flow towards the egg. Stay laying down between 15-20 min and it may help to place a pillow under your hips. (Place a towel over it if you feel you are losing some of "it")

I have also been told to try to pick up your legs (your bottom against the headboard and feet right up) and crossing your legs at the ankles to try to keep "it" in. One mistake is trying to tighten your kegels - you may actually end up pushing more out.
