Why does the semen flow out of the vagina after intercourse?

Q: I am married for 3 years but we are still not blessed with a child. Everything is normal with both of us. Ovulation study shows normal cycle. I have observed that after the intercourse, the moment my husband withdraws his penis, all the semen comes out of the vagina. We tried using a pillow beneath, which helped in keeping the semen inside for few minutes. But after 10 minutes the semen comes out of the vagina. Could this be the cause of infertility? Is it normal? What is the solution? Out of KY Jelly or liquid paraffin, which is a sperm friendly lubricant?

A:This is normal. Most of the semen flows out of vagina after intercourse in all normal fertile couples. This does not affect the fertility. Conception takes place in spite of this happening. Semen is expected to flow out of vagina after intercourse. Semen contains millions of sperms. A very small amount of semen needs to enter the uterus, and only a single sperm is responsible for conception to take place. Rest/most of it is expected to flow out of vagina in all normal fertile women. This simply cannot be the cause of infertility in your case. None of the artificial lubricants are sperm friendly. They all trap sperms, restrict their natural movements and affects fertility.
