Feels as if my chances each month are :leaking: away from me! (sorry if TMI)

So my worry is that each month my DH and I make love, I seem to leak a lot of the semen afterwards. I always elevate my hips for at least 30min and do not move or go to the bathroom. I have done a lot of research saying it is normal to leak after as all of it cannot stay up there, but I feel like A LOT is coming out and nothing is making its way to end my TTC journey! Anyone else have some advice for me.

TTC FOR 16 months.....

One of the things I've done is to see my GYN and have an HSG test to make sure your uterus and tubes are open to receiving the sperm. Make sure you know when your ovulating because that's the best time to try and conceive.

Well id suggest using instead sofcups to deposit the sperm closer to the cervix and you wont leak when you get up. But after laying for that long, what comes out is dead sperm anyway. Gl! =)

What are instead sofcups?  And don't worry hun I am the same way I feel like no matter what I do after sex Alot of semen comes right out and it just keeps coming even after i lay for 30minutes. Not mention I have had alot of tests done and my progesterone levels were only lo and I'm on clomid 50mg this is my 2nd month on it, I'm hopin this month will be it but I just know its going to be negative :(

 You can buy them at walmart. They are usually used for when you have Af but they have had many good results in giving women their Bfp. You put it in right after Sex and can leave it in for 12 hours. I leave it in for about 2 hours. It deposits sperm closer to the cervix and prevents the leaking.

Are softcups hard to use? I should be ovulating soon I hope and if they're hard I don't wanna buy them and mess it up causing more harm than good.

I have seen my GYN and had the tests done and all my tubes are clear and hormone levels are good too! I think it is bad luck and timing! Good luck to you! Baby dust
