Well, not with soap or any type of wash, as it can destroy the bacteria in your vagina that helps clean it out naturally. The discharge you get down there is the vagina cleaning itself so it helps you along a bit, but it's advisable to go to the toilet after sex to flush everything out. And remember to use a condom, otherwise it could get really messy! And result in unwanted pregnancy/infections.

Chances are 30% at most. A fertile woman that allows a fertile man to ejaculate inside her has a 30% chance of getting pregnant in any one cycle. So to translate it into something you can understand:

If you do it 3 months in a row, you stand an excellent chance of getting pregnant. Or, if you and two of your friends does this, one of you will likely be pregnant now.

In short, the risk is not worth those few minutes of pleasure, unless you are willing to get pregnant.

Add to that the fact that you can get an STD if he is not clean. An STD can affect your whole life, and make having children risky and problematic in future.

After about 30 minutes at most, his semen will be totally liquid and running out. It can however take a day for everything to come out. You can do kegels on the toilet and squeeze out as much as possible. Wear a panty liner to keep your underwear clean the next day.

Please take better care if you do not want to end up pregnant!

The chances of getting pregnant in any one cycle if you do not take precautions are 30%.

Put another way:

* If you and two of your friends does it, one of you will likely be pregnant this month.

Or

* If you do it for three cycles in a row, you will likely be pregnant at the end.

Of course it also matters where in your cycle it happened.- during your period, between your period and ovulation or between ovulation and your period start. A woman is normally only fertile for about 7 days in a cycle.

It is normal for his semen to come or. His sperm will escape into your cervix and uterus, but his semen will stay behind in your vagina. The heat makes it watery and it will just run back out.

You can stay laying on your back after sex with a pillow under your behind to lift it up. You only have to do this for 15 or 20 minutes. After that time, only dead and weak sperm will be left behind. You can then go and pee and clean up. Peeing after sex is important to prevent an UTI.

Best of luck TTC!
