Red face How Long a sperm stays alive in the air after ejaculation?

Hello, can someone help me with these question? I would like to know how long a sperm stays alive when he ejaculates? Is it possible a woman to get pregnant when a man withdraw before he ejaculates and squirts his sperm near the woman genitale? I ask these questions because, it happened to me. I had my period on March 14, 2004 and then April 9th, 2004 and today is May 11th and I have not gotten my period and I am never late. Can it be stress related? LIke i said I never being late even if I am really stress out. Can someone help me answer these questions.


Thank you!!!

I hate to tell you this but pulling out isn't always a safe bet. Because sperm is coming out before the initial ejaculation and he is inside you so sperm is alive.
You could be late because your stressed but I would get checked by my Doc if I was you just to be sure. Good luck.

You can still become pregnant even after pulling out before ejaculation because there is sperm in pre-***. If the sperm is anywhere near the genitals it is still possible to become pregnant. I forget how long they are supposidly viable though I think its 48hrs.

Thank you! So you think that the sperm stays active about 48hrs? See, he argue with me and tells me that once the sperm is out in the open (air) it dies.

Sperm doesnt die on contact with air. If it did then sperm donors wouldnt be abel to donate,men who have fertility issues wouldnt be able to get it tested to see what is wrong with it,IVF and IUI(procedures done to help a woman get pregnant) couldnt be done. As long as the sperm is moist it is viable. Inside a woman it can live and be viable between 3 to 7 days. Outside the body of either person it can live anywhere from 4 hours up to 12 hours.
