Those of you who know me know that I have been ttc for 11 months now. I have one questin: after sex we know to lie down for awhile so it dont run out. Yes I know that there is some in there but why is it not sure if this happens to anyone else but later like two hours or so i'll be walking or something and then feel like I am peeing my pants and go to the bathroom and the sperm has just run out and alot!!Kinda of like alot of mucus but pretty sure its not. Does this happen to any one else and why does it happen.

It is common.
The sperm don't need the semen once they are inside you.
Thefore you end up with the seminal fluids running back out - thank gravity Wink

but yes the sperm will mostly be in your fertile mucus swimming their way up the fallopian tubes. They swim at about 3-7 inches per hour depending on the quality of the sperm.

This is normal. Sometimes I would fall asleep after sex and wake up the next morning and still have some run out. I ended up putting a panty liner on afterwards so there wasn't a mess.

Yup
I have the same thing - totally grosses me out when it does come out, cause sometimes it seems to be running down my leg... Ewww!

Pantie liners are the best answer for that - they're awesome at keeping you (and your legs Smile ) clean. Even though the feeling of having a wet pantie liner is kinda gross as well, its just a lot better then feelin it drippin down your leg.


Have fun concieving - and lots of baby dust 2 u!


Good luck!
