When he ejaculates, his semen is jelly-like. Due to the heat at the top of your vagina, this jelly-like semen will liquefy over the next 20 to 30 minutes, allowing his sperm to escape, find your cervix and enter your uterus and Fallopian tubes where it will wait for your egg to be released (ovulation) for 3 to 5 days before dying.


All the semen is however left behind in your vagina. Since your vagina is closed at the top, it has only one way out - through your vaginal entrance. At this stage, it is often watery and clear or cloudy. This can keep on coming out over the next 24 hours. It is called flow-back.

How you wipe is important.


Ladies, you're always reminded to wipe from front to back so that you don't contaminate the vagina with bacteria from the rectum, which could ultimately lead to a UTI.

You can clean the area, but be gentle.


Urinating after sex is the most surefire way to minimize the risk of infection, but there are other ways to keep things clean. It's recommended that you allow excessive semen to drain from the vagina if having penis-in-vagina intercourse without a condom so that your vaginal pH stays in balance. This helps to prevent yeast and bacterial infections and UTIs.

We also recommend you clean the vulva [the external part of the female sex organs] gently with warm water and mild soap on a washcloth to remove sweat, semen, and bacteria, adding that you should “wipe from front to back when cleaning."

And even though you can find plenty of fragrant feminine hygiene washes, creams, oils, and cleansers lining drugstore shelves, all of our experts suggest using plain soap and water with no fragrance or harsh chemicals for the delicate vulva area.
