Will sperm stay in fertile egg white cervical mucas before ovulation? is there a chance the sperm comes out from vagina in mucus?

Semen: Semen leaks in most cases. But, that leakage does not in any way represent any lowering of the risk of pregnancy. Sperm are designed to swim to find an egg and after ejaculation sperm are on their way to and through the cervix regardless of the cervical mucous.
