Re: Sperm Dying Inside A Condom
Actually T that is incorrect. If that were true then semen analysis( testing to see if a man had healthy active sperm) wouldnt exist,IVF,IUI,sperm donation and other such things wouldnt exisit. All require sperm to be exposed to the air anywhere from an hour up to 12 hours. The semen analysis is a test that is run over the course of several hours. Sperm can actually live between 4 to 12 hours outside the male body.
The above case with the sister is by far outside that window,so there is nothing to worry over in that case. The sperm would have all been dead.
For those that dont know what IVF and IUI are those are infertility treatments. IVF is where the egg and sperm are put togheter either in a dish or a sperm is directly injected into an egg. Of course during this time they are exposed to air. The IUI is where a semen sample is taken via cup from the male and then injected into the uterus. Once again in contact with air.
