Can You See Dead Sperm
Not necessarily: One can have infection in the genital organs anywhere from the testicle, the epididymus, the tube, the seminal vesicles, the prostate, the urethra or elsewhere and still have live and potent sperm. Certainly in a localized area such as the epididymus, some sperm may die due to the surrounding infection. Interesting question! ...Read more
If you have sex and sperm gets in but you smoke that night, will it cause the sperm to not be able to fertilize the egg? Will you not get pregnant?
No for neurons: I interpret your questions to mean that if you have an injury or stroke and there is a loss of brain cells, will they grow back? The classic answer with neurons (these are the ones important for thinking and movement) is that they do not regenerate. These are also the most sensitive to injury. Other types of brain cells such as the glia or microglia are not as sensitive to injury. ...Read more
Not always. Depends : On pediculicide used. The most effective approach is to retreat lice. The reason is that not all pediculicides kill the eggs. It is best to retreat in the window when the eggs have hatched into nymphs but are not yet hatching new eggs. There are however, some pediculicides which are strongly ovicidal. ...Read more
Can you get pregnant if you have sperm on upper body then showered immediately? Will the sperm drip down to the vagina and cause pregnancy?
Yes but....: There is a condition known as pseudofolliculitis barbae (pfb) which can look like an infection (folliculitis). Pfb or shaving bumps is a foreign body inflammatory reaction involving papules and pustules from shaving. Pustules and abscess formation can also occur from secondary infection. The cause of pfb is ingrown hairs from shaving too close. African americans are at a higher risk for pfb. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: If you are referring to having bacterial vaginosis, the answer is probably not. Infection can cause a hostile environment for sperm. Increased mucous, thick mucous, high or low pH and physical barriers to the sperm let along toxicity to the sperm. There are many pregnancies, however in the face of vaginal infections. Good reason to plan pregnancies and get your house in order before attempting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes but RARE: The platelet count would have to be so low that you spontaneously started to bleed and did nothing about it. The pLT count can go quite low without consequence although it must be followed by a hematologist. If it gets to low a platelet transfusion is performed and the number rises significantly ...Read more
Get a Semen Analysis: You can't tell by looking at your testicles. Semen analysis is best done through a fertility clinic or urology office rather than a general medical testing lab. Home sperm tests are not very useful. If you're not trying to conceive assume you're fertile; if you and your partner are trying to conceive you should both see a fertility specialist (rei) for testing and individualized treatment. ...Read more
When semen enters the vagina how many days do you need to wait to find out if you could possibly be pregnant?
2-4 weeks: Home pregnancy tests can be positive from 2-7 days after a missed period (depending on brand and whether or not you follow the instructions). Until you find out, use protection to prevent further chances. Also, anytime you have unprotected sex, assume you are pregnant, and don't use drugs, non-prescribed meds, alcohol, or smoke. Also get checked for sexually transmitted diseases. ...Read more

If someone ejaculates in your anus and you don't get rid of the semen, how long can it stay inside you? Can this cause bad odor?
No, it can't.: The only way a virus can make you sick is if it gets into your cells, affects the activity inside those cells, and then multiplies and spreads to other cells. And only a live virus can do that. A "dead" virus, like that found in the flu vaccine, absolutely can not cause the flu. On the other hand, any vaccine can possibly cause an allergic reaction, so i suppose it could harm you that way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
