After you have sex, what do you do with the semen?
I try to hold it all in (most of the time, some spills out,) and i put my legs up for 5 mins, then I’ll go pee and gently pat dry the excess semen that has spilled on the outside, so the outside of my vagina is dry and clean but I dont go digging it out from inside.
I know this question is straight up crazy and weird… but I’ve never thought about what I’m supposed to do. Does anyone want to share what they do?

We use condoms so it’s pretty clean, it just all stays in the condom!
ETA: We always keep a box of tissues handy. For a brief time I was on the pill, I would quickly grab some tissues to wipe up any spills immediately.

Yup when not using condoms I wipe with nearby tissues. I always pee right after to prevent UTIs.

We use condoms now but when we first got married I was on the pill. Then it was wipe with tissue and go to the bathroom (oh and try not to cough or sneeze on the way if you forget to do your pelvic floor exercises!)

GoGoAnonon: lol – i am so glad i am not the only person that thinks about these things –
for me, i pee right after and if i don’t have to pee i use a clean wipe (like a baby wipe)
But I’ve heard if you are TTC you are suppose to lay there with your legs up.

GoGoAnonon: I never really thought about it, we usually just conk out right after so I guess it just hangs out in there. But after having our daughter I got an IUD so we’re not worried about pregnancy. Or we just cuddle until we fall asleep. Sometimes I get up and put underwear on and call it a day.

He carries me over to the shower, uhh.. with him still ‘plugged in’ to keep anything from coming out. I have to have clean lady bits so I have to shower after.

GoGoAnonon: ttc here so usually wipe with a rag on the outside while still in bed lol. And I usually lay there for 5-15 minutes. Then I’ll get up go pee if I have to. But I try to avoid getting up or doing anything for a good couple of hours. I usually leak the next morning or that evening if we go places or go to town . The most horrible feeling-_- being out in public and you just feel it all spill out. Ughh!

GoGoAnonon: lol I’ve always wondered this too! I’m off bcp now so we’re using condoms until after the wedding. But before I’d jump up waddle to the bathroom while keeping my legs closed. I was wondering what will happen when we TTC, I think I’ll just lay there for a while then go to the toilet!

GoGoAnonon: Shouldn’t have to put legs up in the air, just laying down for 10 min after is sufficient. (Info from sister who had a baby, I am not TTC)

We keep cheap washcloths in our nightstand drawers and we use them immediately. We just kind of lay there and cuddle and I keep the washcloth tucked between my legs. Then I hold it there while I walk to the bathroom and I sit down to pee. There’s usually only a little on the washcloth but it really helps to have it. I like it better than tissues because you don’t have to worry about little papery particles getting on/in you. Haha.

GoGoAnonon: I lie there for a few minutes. Then when I get up to pee, I put a soft cup in with a little bit of preseed on it and leave that in for 12 hrs to hold everything in as long as possible.

pinkshoes: Hahaha you killed me ‘plugged in’!
My SO & I have never used condoms so we use a clean hand towel every time we get to it. He actually wipes me himself & I absolutely love it when he does. He does it so thoroughly. The next day we just tuck the towel in the washing machine and we are good to go.
I try to go to the toilet a few minutes later though to prevent UTI.

Rags, tissues, or even wet wipes. I prefer baby wipes personally.

When I was TTC I just laid on the bed with a pillow under my hips I would then just go pee or shower.
…got pregnant with twins, apparently there was enough semen.
