Probably: The alcohol probably kills the sperm that it comes in contact with. The problem is that there are millions of sperms in ejaculate and sperm are good swimmers. If there is semen at the vaginal opening, those sperm can still swim to the cervix (and farther). You are still at risk for pregnancy. Wiping with alcohol wipes will not really help.
