If I take semen from a condom using needless syringe 10 or 15 minutes after it was ejaculated, will it still be alive and usable in the syringe?

Why?: I can not think of why anyone would ever want to do such a thing unless the intention is to use someone's sperm without their permission. That is highly disturbing and unethical. ...Read more

Will I get infected with HIV after using a toilet paper to wipe my glans? Assume the paper is with little semen but placed under air for 3 minutes.

Will I get infected with HIV after using a toilet paper to wipe my glans? Assume the paper is with little semen but placed under air for 3 minutes.

Here's what you do: I'm not concerned. You and a friend enjoyed your bodies together, and cleaned up using the same tissue. Probably a majority of guys explore with another guy this way at one time or another. It's fine that you did this, many guys says it bonds them, and I'm glad you have a quality friend. The risk is near zero but it's good to be tested for HIV yearly just because you're an adult. Get it done. ...Read more

He cummed in the air from 1 to 2 feet away but the semen landed on the opening of my vag, will be be preg? I am so worried.

No Guessing: Any sperm inside of the vagina when you are ovulating can produce pregnancy. If your next period does not start it will be wise to get a pregnancy test. ...Read more

When semen touches air sperm die? & can they come back to life if moistured?

Be careful!: Sperm do not live long outside a proper environment. If all the semen is dried and there is no moisture, one can fairly well assume that all spermatozoa are dead. They are not "freeze dried" or dehydrated and spring to life with bit of water, etc. However, I wouldn't take any chances if pregnancy is not intended. Practice responsible and safe sex. Categorically----no! ...Read more

Length of time semen can stay alive after man ejaculates? Can it stay in/ around penis and impregnate if sex is had an hour later?

Plz answer my question! When I ejaculate I shoot out semen in the air in 2-3 even 4 spurts I've never had a dry orgasm. Is this retrograde ejaclulation?

Plz answer my question! When I ejaculate I shoot out semen in the air in 2-3 even 4 spurts I've never had a dry orgasm. Is this retrograde ejaclulation?

Forward vs. Backward: Shooting semen out from the end of the penis is the usual forward direction, not retrograde. Retrograde is backwards, which means one would not see stuff shooting out. ...Read more

Can you get HIV from sitting on wet seat (worst case example if it was HIV semen about 30 seconds exposed in air)? Liquid went inside butt w/clothes

Forgive my surprise: You're almost a grown man and I'm wondering why you'd have a fear like this. You say you sat down where you have reason to believe that an hiv-positive male had just ejaculated, and that the fluid soaked through the back of your trousers and up there? Something else must be troubling you. Your personal physician is your best friend. Be brave, make the phone call now, and had an honest talk. ...Read more

My hubby went for sperm test he could pass only. Five or one ml semen and his report said no sperms does it confirm azospermia or other test is ther?

Repeat: Complete male evaluation is important. You should obtain another semen analysis after period of abstinence of at least 3 days. Fructose level of specimen is important, may give clues about blockages. Check hormones leves such as fsh, lh and prolactin. Good luck. ...Read more

If we collect sperms in a "flavored"or"lubricated"condom and use them during 20 minutes for artificial insemination will they still be alive and useful?

If we collect sperms in a "flavored"or"lubricated"condom and use them during 20 minutes for artificial insemination will they still be alive and useful?

Condom and sperm: Collection of semen samples in a flavored or lubricated condom may harm the sperm and it's ability to be processed for artificial insemination. There are condoms made specifically for collection of semen samples that is to be processed for insemination and other assisted reproductive techniques. You need to ask your gynecologist or fertility specialist if this is the only way to collect a specimen. ...Read more

Can semen on toilet seat exposed to air for bout a minute impregnate a woman? What if a drop got splashed on to the exterior vagina? Would the sperm have lost motility? Trouble with horrible ocd. Help

Can semen on toilet seat exposed to air for bout a minute impregnate a woman? What if a drop got splashed on to the exterior vagina? Would the sperm have lost motility? Trouble with horrible ocd. Help

Unlikely: Highly unlikely but not impossible. I'd simply use a different toilet. What possible living situation/scenario are you in where this could be a real possibility of pregnancy? As far as semen directly splashing on the exterior vagina, yes, it is possible to get pregnant that way. But chance of success is lessened the further away from the vagina you go. If ocd is prompting the?, get treatment. ...Read more

Can one get HIV from touching semen spillage? Esp if I have cut on hand. Dunno whether semen from hiv+ guy or not or how long had it been exposed to air

Can one get HIV from touching semen spillage? Esp if I have cut on hand. Dunno whether semen from hiv+ guy or not or how long had it been exposed to air

Unlikely: A cut on your hand is still protected by the fibrin that has stopped the bleeding. Entry of virus into your bloodstream where it can do harm in this setting is extremely unlikely. You're an adult now and this brings new joys and new dangers. Be careful in all "adult" situations -- you owe this to yourself and those who love you. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is pre-ejaculate/semen that leaks out of vagina after intercourse dead or alive?

Is pre-ejaculate/semen that leaks out of vagina after intercourse dead or alive?

See below: Sperm, which is present in the semen as well as often within the pre-ejaculate, can survive about 20-60 minutes depending on the level of exposure of the sperm to the air and environmental factors. Once the ejaculation dries up, the sperm are no longer viable. On the other hand, sperm that remain "within" the female reproductive tract (vagina, uterus, tubes) can live up to about 5 days. ...Read more

What is artificial insemination, how much is it successful and how much time a frozen sperm can be alive?

What is artificial insemination, how much is it successful and how much time a frozen sperm can be alive?

IUI: Nowadays artificial insemination isuallyrefers to intrauterine insemination. This is where the sperm specimen is washed then placed into a catheter and this catheter is carefully placed at the very top of the uterus where approximately a half a cc of the sperm and culture media combination is deposited. Pregnancy rate if all is as normal as can be ranges between 15 to 20% per attempt. ...Read more

In artificial insemination, how long will the sperms stay alive in the collection condom in room temperature?

45 minutes to an hour: The sperm specimen should arrive in the lab within 30 to 45 minutes of production. The sperm probably stays reasonably alive for 45 minutes to an hour. Anytime longer at room temperature a majority of them will die. ...Read more

Do sperms die when it hits air? How much is the sucess rate of home insemination compared with normal intercourse? Will it affect baby anyway?

Do sperms die when it hits air? How much is the sucess rate of home insemination compared with normal intercourse? Will it affect baby anyway?

No; air doesn't kill: Exposure to "air" does not kill sperm. And, at home "insemination" (placing semen/sperm into the vagina) is no better than intercourse: it will, also, not be as successful as actual artificial insemination since the treatment (better selection) of sperm, and placement further up (eg to cervical plug or into the uterine cavity) will be more accurate in approximating the sperm to the egg. ...Read more

Doctor, there was little air bubbles in syringe while doing home insemination. Need of worry? Will it affect my fertility?

Air Bubbles: Air bubbles in syringes only are to be cautioned against in intro-areterial injections. Any other use of syringes do not carry any warning about small air bubbles. Your fertility will not be affected. ...Read more

Doctor, during home insemination there was some air bubbles in the syringe? Is there any problem in conceiving? Can it cause embolism?

No embolism: Nope. As others and I have mentioned before. This is not a risk for embolism. You are not inserting the syringe into an artery. No need to worry and no need to ask this question again. Best wishes on getting pregnant. ...Read more

We did home insemination, now periods 2 days late but no pregncy symptoms yet. If there was any air bubbles in the syringe can it block fallopian tube?

Unlikely: A possible complication from home insemination is a pelvic infection that can cause blockage of the fallopian tubes but not " air bubble". Your period is late most likely because you ovulated a little later then you think or because you are pregnant but the level of HCG (hormone of pregnancy) is low. I would recommend taking a home pregnancy test again in 2 days. ...Read more

Do men come to know that when will they ejaculate and can they hold the semen inside them for a few minutes before they ejaculate it out?

No, we're clueless: In other words, withdrawal method isn't a really good form of contraception because sperm are leaking out even before ejaculation. So if you don't want to get pregnant, use some birth control. If you don't want to catch a sexually transmitted infection, make him wear a condom each & every time. No excuses! ...Read more
