When sperm are inside a women’s body, they can live for up to 5 days after ejaculatory sex while waiting for the female egg. We all know not every sex is intended. But, as a lady, how can one flush out sperm from the body?
Most times sex are unintended and the male partner end up ejaculating inside the female. Unintended sex are also without prophylactic sheath (also know as condom).
Sometimes, even when you wear one, condom do break and semen (sperm) leaks into the vagina. Some ladies and guys prefer skin-to-skin with the hope of withdrawing before ejaculation.
But the fact is, the withdrawal method may not be reliable because, part of the semen may spilled into the female before withdrawal or the guy may totally forget and the rest they say is by gone.
And this is a problem to ladies especially when they are not in their safe period after intercourse. The fear of pregnancy is real.
For hygiene reasons or trying to prevent pregnancy, some people may wish to flush out sperm from the body after intercourse.
