A woman “battling” eda

A lot of women, especially those looking to conceive have been led to believe you need to prop your leg up a wall to let the semen ‘enter’ your womb.

Unless, you’re doing this for the fun of it… it hasn’t actually been shown to contribute to your fertility chances.

After ejaculation,
Some of the sperm will remain in the back of the vagina (the posterior fornix). An even smaller amount makes its way up through the cervix, into the uterus and down the fallopian tubes. Sperm (cell) travels quickly, so within minutes, it’s enroute fallopian tube.

It’s in the Fallopian tubes that the egg waits to receive the sperm. Fertilization can then occur.

Semen will leak out after sex, unless a condom is used and there’s not much one can do about it. It doesn’t mean something is wrong with the man or woman. EDA has no clear-cut symptoms other that leakage of semen from the woman after intercourse. It is not a disease.

If you feel leakage is too plenty…
In fact, it could be a good sign, since it indicates that there’s enough sperm to result in pregnancy.

So you see… just time your ovulation right. Know your menstrual cycle and try. If after a year of adequate, regular, unprotected sex…

the woman is still unable to conceive… then you might both need to go see a Gynaecologist for thorough clinical examination, to ascertain the issue.

It could equally be factors from the Man, the woman or even both.

Infertility isn’t female.
Sperm quality over quantity



Lol…Tbh Doc,me too I use to raise leg up sometimes. Not cos I don’t know it doesn’t do anything…it just gives me that sense of doing something extra. The struggle is real for women TTC’ing. Yoruba call it Eda and they will suggest all manner of agbo that is just bs,IMO.
