Q: After we have sex, the ejaculate leaks out of my vagina. Does this leakage prevent us from getting pregnant?
A: Most women notice some discharge immediately after sex and some think it's the cause of infertility. The fluid coming out of the vagina after
his orgasm is a portion of the ejaculate. But less than 5% of the ejaculate is actually sperm -- over 95% is made up of other fluids. Leakage of the ejaculate from the vagina is highly unlikely to prevent you from getting pregnant. In fact, it's totally normal for some of the ejaculate to come out of your vagina after intercourse. If he ejaculates deeply inside you, then you can be sure that no matter how much of the ejaculate leaks out afterward, enough sperm will reach the cervical mucus. If you stay on your back for the suggested 15-20 minutes after intercourse, hips slightly elevated, this leakage of the ejaculate is usually not a cause of infertility. It is probably a good sign that some ejaculate leaks out because it may mean that he is depositing his semen normally in your vagina and that there is enough of it.
