Q: What should we do after he ejaculates when we are trying to conceive (TTC)?

 

A: Once your husband ejaculates, both of you can relax and do whatever you are comfortable with. If he wishes, and it's OK with you, he can stay longer inside your vagina. You may also gently "squeeze" his penis as he pulls out. The more important issue is when you, yourself, get up. If you have been making love while you were on your back, it may be best to remain so about 10-15 minutes, maybe keeping your hips slightly elevated. Placing a pillow below your behind may help the sperm swim through your cervix
