Hi, myself and my husband have been trying for a baby for a few months now. When my husband pulls out his penis after ejeculation (even on a missionary position), most of his semen comes of my vagina. Is this common? Can you please suggest any technique or position that would help me keep most of it inside me, so that it would give me a better chance to conceive.

Thank you so much.

Yes, that is common and normal and doesn't impede conception. There's no reason to go nuts trying to keep semen in: most of that fluid is NOT sperm: the sperm in it swim upwards.

Have you yet had a check-in with your OB/GYN since you're starting to try and conceive? It'd be the smartest thing to do, and there he or she can also talk to you about charting and all the other basics of conception.
