Okay, I did my first attempt at an at-home insemination and did the expected laying down with pelvis elavated for a good couple of hours post insemination (sleeping). When I got up I noticed a lot of discharge and immediately I was like "oh crap- the swimmers are swimming the wrong way!"<br><br>
But then I thought that, well obviously the semen isn't all going to go up so it must have to come down. SO my question is how do you know that the swimmers have gone the right way?? Do they separate from the semen to the CM which goes through the cervix?? I had bought some of the instead cups but decided against using them and now I wonder if I should have?<br><br>
Does anyone know? I'm guessing it is the same for regular intercourse- what are peoples experiences?<br><br>

It's okay, it's confusing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>
About half of the swimmers swim the wrong way anyway. (I always said women were brighter than men. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ) There is always some "leakage" afterwards. Don't worry, the smart guys have gotten where they need to go by the time you sit up.
