Hi doctor,

Is female orgasm necessary to get conceive? Are both male and female orgasms required at the same time for conceiving? After sex some amount of semen leaks out, is it normal? Please give me some suggestion. Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Female orgasm is not at all necessary for conceiving. Many females experience orgasm after many years of sexual activity.
  • Male and female orgasm at the same time is also not necessary for conceiving.
  • It is normal for some semen to leak after sex and even leaks out totally from female vagina, but that does not mean that she cannot conceive. Even the precum can also help you to conceive.
  • Suggestions for conceiving:
  1. First try to relax and do not take any stress. This will help you to keep your hormone levels under control.
  2. Take trial during ovulation days of your partner which will be roughly between 12-16th day in a woman with 28-30 days cycle or broadly middle 14 days of the cycle.
  3. One more important thing for you is to gain weight. You are quite underweight with BMI of 10.
  4. You can get your semen analysis done to see if all parameters are normal.
  5. Take self trial for 6 months or so, otherwise you can go for investigations.

Hello doctor,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Frequency of intercourse is your personal choice. But for conceiving, you need to do intercourse daily in middle days of cycle or to be more specific 11th to 20th day of cycle.
  • To know exactly otherwise, she can get one ovulation study done, where on ultrasound daily size of follicle is monitored and when it ruptures is also seen.
  • Once the follicle ruptures, egg is released and it remains viable for 24 hours and that is the most critical and appropriate time of conception.
