Sperm leaking out right after sex, is this normal

I have a question, after we BD, I put my legs up to hold the semen inside, but the moment I get up....or sometimes right after we have sex, the sperm leaks out is this normal?

Havent you ever noticed this before?  It's the age old arguement "who has to sleep on the wet spot".

Normal.

I have also read that the residual that leaks out is the weaker and /or abnormal swimmers. It is normal, but even after I have my hips up for 20 minutes and I rationally know what is 'good' is on its way - I panic a little with the leakage. We just pay attention to everything now don't we?!

For us, some usually leaks out right before I put my legs up and after I lay there for 30 minutes or so.  I think it's impossible to not have ANY leakage!!

I fell asleep a couple of nights ago with a pillow under my bum, and when I woke up two hours later I still leaked!

Hi I am new here just found this site today.
I leak a lot sometimes and then other times I don't.  I try and lay there for a while with my legs up. Sometimes I can't I start thinking about other things and then I have to get up.

Sorry..i just want to laugh at this one. I had this argument with my SIL not too long ago. Yes..I think we all leak.

yes it is quite natural to leak from the top when the tank is full :-) may be you should have sex quite often so that the semen is less in quantity everytime it comes out and everything goes inside .. just a stupid suggestion but nothing to worry..

I am so glad someone asked this, I have always wondered since I too experience the leakage afterwards.  I thought it was just me and lets face it not everyone has girlfriends they feel comfortable asking that question. So I feel better knowing everyone has a little leakage, its not just me.  I wish it could all stay in, sometimes I think oh what a waste!! Ugh!!!!!!!

I experience the same thing as well, sometimes I try to lie down for about 30 mins, for sperm to swim in the right direction, but eventually some do leak out. I think this is normal since normal sperm is not so thick.

I'm really glad someone else asked because to me it seems like a lot of sperm leaks out.  My husband and I are trying to conceive and I keep thinking that's why we haven't yet.  Sometimes it's a little that leaks out but a lot of times it seems like all the sperm leaks out.  I'm just praying some gets to where it needs to be......and I'm glad I'm a normal person.  LOL.

i am 20 yrs old. when i was 16 i had an abortion (not by my choice.... kinda pressured... young and dumb full of ***) but regaurdless its a decision that hurts me everday. i have been now tring to conceive for 3 months now with no luck!!!!  Everthime we have sex it seems like all the semen leaks out, i find this wierd because in all my years of having sex i've never experienced leakage...(except with this one person) are his swimmers too weak? or am i just slow? or am i just being punished for my sins?

i am so glad that you other women have the same thing. I was starting to get paranoid thinking there was something wrong. My husband and i have started trying to get pregnant and i was worried that something was wrong cause i always leak afterwards. I am guessing my almost everybodies post that i should lay ther for about 30min with my hips elevated. I guess that will help. I have heard only somthing like 2% of sperm actually make it through to try and get to the egg all of the rest die.

hehe. There is bound to be some leakage, like my husband told me, its a dead end in there so its bound to come back out. Lolz. But looking at it scientifically, the healthy swimmers will get thru quickly and semen shud start to coagulate soon after its out. And ur leakage shud reduce. If its runny always I'd say have ur Mr do a semen test to make sure its all ok. Its dosent take much for them to be tested.

Believe me its totally normal for sperms to come out after intercouse.
It happens to all of us, dont worry abt that.
Just have a worryfree good sex with your partner and make sure penis is penetrated deep enogh while ejaculation and tell her to keep her legs in air for some time after ejaculation and her hips elevated.

It worked for me , it shd work for u all.
God Bless!

Hey ladies!  Let me clear up all the leakage issues.  So the ejaculate is made up of more than just sperm, including seminal fluid (all of which provide nutrients for the sperm).  So when you have intercourse, the vagina's job is to clean out all the junk including the non-motile sperm, white blood cells, bacteria, etc. and leave that behind.  The sperm are already way up into the reproductive tract by the time you are leaking out fluid.  They are SUPER swimmers!!!  Plus, the ejaculate contains millions of motile sperm, and you need just one!!  The fluid leaking out is not "sperm" per say, it is ejaculatory fluid that was holding the sperm, it is meant to come back out.  Having frequent intercourse is only going to change the sperm concentration, not the volume of the ejaculate.  Good luck ladies, and no worries :c)

Same here ladies. i also have this problem, i always leak right after sex (it also seems like alot) my boyfriend and i are worried, we wonder if its normal and if i will ever be able to have children, and the sad part is that im only 18. Im not trying to have kids right now but i do want sum in the future. My mom always had problems with getting pregnant. Her 1st child choked on his umbelical cord, she had 3 misscarriges after that, i was born on high risk, and 6 years later with dr. help she got pregnant with twins that were very premi. I wonder if i will also be like that and have problems with getting pregnant. I also wonder if birthcontrol effects in any way fertility in the future.

Wow this aricle made me feel alot better!!! Everytime me and my boyfriend would have intercourse afterwards I would leak alot, it seemed like everything he put in came out like I was simply urinating....We have been trying to have a baby for 5 months and still no luck....Is it normal for it to take so long to conceive even in my early 20's?

Hi, i also noticed sperm leakage after sex, i would lie there for 20-30 mins but even after that it would leak.so i went to doctors, had some tests done, and found out that i have blocked fallopian tubes.i am now waiting for ivf, as this is the only way i can get pregnant. or the other option was surgery to open the blockage..

I am so glad I read this. I was tested and i was told I have PCOS and my husbands sperm was checked and he has some weak swimmers but should not have issues with reproduction. I was told recently that I now have no issues with PCOS and I leak ALL the time, even after elevating my legs. It drives me nuts as we have been trying to conceive for years. I'm glad it's normal and that we all experience this. I will just try having sex upside down so all his swimmers make it where they need to go! LOL

I always thought it was because i came off the depo thats why i was leaking, me and my partner are trying for our 2nd baby and the only touble is i cant remember wot i did when we were trying for our 1st. I leak loads after sex and i also need the toilet as well. Is that normal? x

Well, it has to go somewhere right? The ones that don't make it come back out. Imagine how much semen would be inside us if none of it ever came out!

birth control increases your hormones so i hear so if your on birth control for a while and then all of a sudden stop it can help you get pregnant.My sister never got pregnant after 4 years with her babe but got on birth control cuz she decided she didn't want kids right then she was on it for 2 years when she missed her birth control shot she got back on it 2 days later then found out she was pregnant my other sister is married and is trying to have a baby for 3 years now her doctor she saw told she should try doing that  she hasn't yet though but if a doctor recommends it it cant be to far from the truth

Hey Geuera82 :)

I know this is a long time after your post and I really hope you have been able to conceive by now. My husband and I are now trying to conceive and I came across your post. I just wanted to send you this link, they are an amazing organisation that help you heal emotionally after an abortion. I would highly recommend exploring their website. http://www.rachelsvineyard.org/ xxx
