Im trying to conceive when my husband ejaculates in me it's little to no sperm/cum how much does it take to get me pregnant? Could this be the reason

Yes: Sperm is contained in the very first part of the ejaculate. The rest of the semen is supportive fluid to help it survive in the vaginal canal. If there is not enough fluid to protect it in the vagina then the sperm probably doesn't live long enough to enter into the reproductive track. Intrauterine insemination would help this issue. ...Read more
