  • When I conceived I was on top, hopped off and went to run errands right afterward. Very romantic, I know.

  • Make sure you orgasm, it pulls his stuff towards your eggs. And I would say 10 minutes is plenty of time! :-) GL!

  • I thought that too, but long as you have a little support maybe from a pillow underneath you will having sex it like your body is cup but if some leak out dont think it didnt do it job bc men has tons of sperm and sometimes the vigina releases it if its too much. The best thing to do is just relax your muscles during sex.
