Re: does semen die in the air

No sperm doesnt die on contact with air. If it did then IUI,IVF(fertility treatments in which sperm is taken from the male and either inserted inthe uterus(IUI) or an egg(IVF) ),sperm donation,and semen analysis couldnt be done. Sperm can actually live for several hours exposed to air as long as conditions are right.

Re: does semen die in the air

Sperm cannot survive outside the body. How long it will live depends on several factors, including temperature and humidity. It will die rather quickly in a hot tub with chlorinated water.
