Is sperm leakage normal after sex?

Sperm leakage from the vagina after sex is normal and to be expected. Sperm leakage can actually be a good thing because it means there is enough of the ejaculate. After semen is released into the vagina, sperm immediately begins moving into the cervix and up into the uterus for fertilization in the fallopian tubes. Sperm moves into the tubes within minutes after ejaculation in the vagina.

Once the ejaculate is inside the vagina, vaginal secretions start destroying much of the sperm. When they move into the cervix and uterus, they are protected from the hostile vaginal acidic secretions.

It is normal after ejaculation for much of the ejaculate to leak out of the vagina.

Can semen leakage make it harder for you to get pregnant?

Some women notice some discharge immediately after sex and think it's the cause of infertility. The fluid coming out of the vagina after his orgasm is a merely a portion of the ejaculate.

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 ejaculate to leak out after intercourse.

What can I do to ensure that more sperm stays inside after sex?

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, with hips slightly elevated, this leakage of the ejaculate is usually not a cause of infertility.

In the end, don't worry too much and consider the fact that it is probably a good sign of health 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.
