I think I had read somewhere that the amount of a guy's ejaculation depends on how often he has sex or how often he masturbates and ejaculates each time he masturbates.  I have been with a few guys and noticed that they all ejaculate a different amount.  If a guy ejaculates a small amount, does this mean it will be harder for his wife to get pregnant?  thanks

There are a lot of factors regarding sperm and pregnancy to consider if you are TRYING to get pregnant. Whether or not a man smokes, drinks, plays a sport, etc. Then there are size and motility (how good they swim) factors as well. 

There are about 20 million sperm in 1 milliliter of ejaculate, average is 2-5 ml per ejaculation. So, even in a smaller one, there's plenty of those suckers to swim........but, like I said, there are a lot of other factors....

  No it does not.  Sperm is but one of the elements of male ejaculate.  The amount of sperm is not visible as they are microscopic.
