Not Very: Zeman is an expensive vitamin/suppliment. If he is deficient in his diet, a vitamin/suppliment may help various areas of his health. If he is not, then it will likely have no effect. There are no studies showing zeman to be any better than any other vitamin/suppliment.

If sperm gets on or around my vagina, can I get pregnant?

Yes: It is possible but not very likely. Sperm must get inside the vagina in order to get pregnant. If sperm is spilled outside the vagina it would have to get into the vagina for you to get pregnant.

None proven to help: Men who are worried about their sperm and semen are usually trying to have a baby, so may end up buying and taking supplements advertised to help sperm, just for the extra ounce of hope. The uncertain amounts of l-carnitine, vit. E, folic acid, vit. C, or coenzyme q10 that may be in the supplements, along with uncertain amounts of "other" ingredients, have not been proven to help sperm or semen.

No: Commonly used antibiotics for UTI don't stop you from getting pregnant. In fact, some women on birth control pills get pregnant when they take antibiotics as antibiotics can affect birth control pill effectiveness.
