Sperm leakage or sperm reflux is the process of sperm out from the vagina after sexual Intercourse. 

Sperm is characterized into 3 forms;

*  The head (fusion with the ovum)
*  The body (provides energy)
*  The tail (for movement)

For fertilization to occur sperm the head, the body and the tail must function effectively if not, it becomes a case of male infertility. 

Women with infection such as PID, Staphylococcus, and other STD) will reduce the immune system to release anti-sperm antibodies within the vaginal tract. This antibodies will attack the head of the sperm and weakening its viability and capacity to penetrate the cervical mucus, lowering the chances of fertilization, the rest of ejaculated pours will pour out of the vagina.

Causes of Sperm Leakages

1. Bacterial Infection:
A woman with a history of genital diseases will have some antibodies lurking inside her vagina. These antibodies mistakenly could attack the male sperm cells inadvertently, and in the process harming the sperm.

2. Dietary Choice:
A woman with thick cervical mucus can also suffer from the leakage of sperm from the vagina due to over-indulgence in foods with excess glucose content.

The reason behind this is that foods with high glycemic index increases the acidic pH level of the vagina and thickens the cervical (vaginal) fluid, whereas the sperm will require an optimal alkaline environment, and as a result this repels the male sperm leading to sperm leakages.

3. Retroverted Womb:
Women with tilted (or malpositioned) uterus have been found to suffer from sperm leakages from the vagina. This is because the normal uterus is in anteverted anatomical position and more favourable for normal sperm movement into the womb, as against a retroverted womb that impedes the male semen from moving into the womb.

4. Quality of seminal fluids:
When a man is suffering from oligospermia or azoospermia which might be as a result of any sexual transmitted diseases, will definitely affect the morphology, motility, viscosity and counts of the spermatozoans.
