What happens to the sperm?

I recently started on the pill and in a few days me and my boyfriend are going to have sex for the first time w/o a condom. What will happen to the sperm when he ejaculates?

Re: What happens to the sperm?

They'll leave the ejaculate fluid and catch a ride on your fluid. Then it will start the long treacherous journey up the vagina, into the cervix and through the uterus, towards the tubes looking for an egg. Many will die along the way. Some will die because they are weak, some will "get lost" and die (no joke!) and some will die because the pill will cause your body to be hostile to the sperm (it changes the pH so they can't survive) and the ones that don't will make it up to where the egg should be (but won't be, hopefully, if your pill works) and the will die off harmlessly after a few days with no egg. LOL.

Quite a picture, huh? The fluid that actually comes back out of you after sex is mostly empty ejaculate fluid with some "duds". The healthy sperm have mostly intered your body and are swimming around heading for an egg they most likely won't find.

I dont think anything happens to his sperm. I think it ends up inside you. You should use a condom.Da pill is not 100% . I know I didnt like to wrap it either,,And I didnt. Thats why I was married at 21 . I think the pill kills your egg or somthing ?

Re: What happens to the sperm?

What happens to it? actually it just ends up inside of you for a while and then it falls out or trickles out if you stand up lol or most of it just shoots back out with your contractions(if you get an orgasm). The amount of the tiny sperms that you can't even see with the naked eye that is left inside of you is so minimal that it is not even relevant. Just make sure that after your steamy session that you try and get most of it out so it doesn't trickle out when you go out for a hamburger 3 hours later lol.

LOL!!! The above poster was right. Don't stay in bed and try to go to sleep afterwards, or you'll be leaking ejaculate fluid all night!

Re: What happens to the sperm?

The sperm is either absorbed by you, or trickles out afterwards.

Yeah some gets absorbed as well. I don't mean to hijack your thread here. But I read not long ago about research about that subject. Where they probed into the question why females enjoyed sex more and had a higher enjoyment afterwards when the partner ejaculates inside of her vs using a condom or pulling out. They quickly found out that it wasn't just the minor things like rubber burns or discomfort from the condom. But rather that the semen has substances in it that goes into the females bloodstream and gives her a long term sense of fullfillment many hours and sometimes days afterwards, which they dont get from the use of condoms.

the pill is about 99.9% effective
usually when someone claims to have gotten pregnant on the pill it is because of human error
as long as you take your pills properly you should be fine, so don't worry about this

Re: What happens to the sperm?

Siren has a very good answer, read it at least twice. It is the journey, life, & death of the sperm.

It's not. It's only 99% effective with perfect use. That means one women out of 100 will end up pregnant over the course of one year. It all depends on where you get your stats. The US FDA gives it 98-99%.

As for the original question, most of it will appear to leak out of you afterwards which is a bit of a drawback to the whole thing...

Re: What happens to the sperm?

i thought i'd read 99.8 or 99.9 somewhere but i could be wrong
anyway, 99% is still very effective

Re: What happens to the sperm?

Oh so very true!!

I think going to the bathroom aftrwards helps too (also to help prevent urinary tract infections). What goes up must come down.
