When sperm hits the air does it die?

When sperm hits the air does it die?

NO: This may be a misconception for couples using the "pull out method" for contraception. Sperm may not be viable for long "out in the air" however, if you are using the pull out method for contraception, normal sperm are very active and strong swimmers, so even if most of ejaculation happens after "pull out" and , even small amounts left close to the vagina, can make a bee line to the womb. ...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?

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

If sperm hits the floor its die immediate right?

If sperm hits the floor its die immediate right?

I don't think so: Have never seen a research study on how many sperm die on floor impact, and doubt anyone will do that study. Presuming a room-temperature floor, and a glob of semen with millions of sperm, there should be many survivors immediately after impact. Impact is low-speed, and the sperm are cushioned by the fluid being thick. There's no natural way for sperm to have a high-speed collision with the floor. ...Read more

Does sperm die immediately when it is on skin and if it meets air?

Does sperm die immediately when it is on skin and if it meets air?

Mostly: Sperm requires a warm, moist place to maintain viability. The skin is not such a place and as the sample dries, the sperm die also. I am guessing that you have some sperm that was deposited on the skin around your vagina and are worried if it can transfer inside. This is unlikely but you can consider next time using protection or at least taking a shower or bath right after sex the next time. ...Read more

How quickly does sperm die as it makes contact with air, water, and soap?

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

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
