Can pre ejaculate that was exposed in the air at least 15sec, almost dried, cause pregnancy?

In brief: Unlikely, but...

Considering high fastidious requirement for sperms to survive & swim to fertilize a timely waiting egg in Fallopian tube, the described scenario should pose no odd to conceive.
Nonetheless, still do HPT in a wk after missing period, and repeat it in another wk if the first HPT is (-) & still in doubt since no known contraceptive gives 100% success but absolute abstinence. Best wish..
