Question about pregancy

I was recently with a woman who had a miscarriage about 2 weeks ago. I know she was disappointed about the miscarriage because she wanted the baby. We used a condom this time, and when we were done, she tied the condom off, so we didn't make a mess. My question is this: could this semen be used to impregnate her, or is it dead? It sat there for at least 10-15 minutes. The only reason I ask is because if this was possible, I could potentially see her trying it, and this is not something I want. Thanks for your help.

Re: Question about pregancy

How long human sperm can live outside the human body depends on a number of things, but most importantly temperature and humidity. At room temperature (around 75 degrees) without dehydration, sperm can live between 4 and 6 hours. In drier air at room temperature, sperm can live maybe 1 to 3 hours. I would think if your ejaculation was tied off in a condom, dehyrdration would be less of a factor, so any sperm in there could live for a few hours - certainly for 10-15 minutes. I'm not sure what the legal ramifications are of someone impregnating themselves with sperm from a tied-off condom from a guy who was NOT intending on conception...but it sounds pretty underhanded to me.

Re: Question about pregancy

To add to the above...I wold think the sperm would survive even less time if you used a condom that contained spermacide. ALSO...IF she does end up pregnant, and says it's yours...demand a DNA test, and get some legal advice.
