ODD question, but curios

Carly - October 2

My husband and I are ttc. After intercourse, I keep my legs up for 1/2 hour. Unfortunately, every time I get up (if not right away, then a little later on), (I'm assumming it is) his "sperm" comes out running down my leg. Do you think anything has reached my eggs??? Or would I not be able to get pregnant because of this? Has this happened to any of you? Any info. will be helpful. We've been trying for about 9 mos. now and "that" just crossed my mind. Thanks.

I read that the most sperm come out in the first ejaculate. Anything that runs out is usually non functional sperm or just semen. After a half hour, the sperm have already reached the cervix, so staying in bed after that has not been shown to be more effective. Yes I think it has reached your cervix. It then takes them a while to reach the fallopian tube and then the egg. good luck!

Me is right, that "stuff running down your leg" just gets the sperm there, it's not exacty running back on.

I wonder the same thing! I have sat in bed with my legs up too, feeling kinda silly hoping the sperm will have a better chance to "swim" up. I honestly don't know if it makes a difference, but I'm glad I am not the only one who does that! We've been ttc for only two months, but I am so anxious for it to happen, I can only imagine how you're feeling. Good luck!
