My husband and I are trying to conceive, but when we're done his come falls out of me. What can we do and why does that happen?
Normal: What you are describing is normal and won't prevent pregnancy. The vagina is a blind pouch and most of the seminal fluid that goes in will eventually come out.

Combo: There may be more than this too: part is perhaps irritation from salty tears, part rubbing eyes, part the emotions behind the tears. The emotions activate the sympathetic nervous system which increases blood flow (among other things) and constricts muscles. Some of the puffiness is the additional blood and the swelling of facial muscles used by crying. It's almost as complicated as why we cry. ...Read more
