What is the longest it can live outside of the body? I was saying it can't live but maybe a minute or 2 but come to find out, I am wrong. I think it has something to do with temperature, too. My friend says hours. Curiosity has me wondering due to a friendly argument...lol.

Stop and think! Artificial insemination is done with sperm that has been properly preserved for months or years. In temperature, moisture and chemical conditions similar to those in the female reproductive tract, it can live for days. In other conditions it must lose potency quite rapidly as temperature and humidity conditions deteriorate. A handful of fresh wet s____n applied to the v____al area would certainly be able to do it's work.

Wow, thank you for clearing that up Grandpa Viv. The reason I ask is b/c I am trying to clear something up. My friend took a condom out of the garbage less than 5 minutes after her boyfriend ejaculated, turned it inside out and insert it in herself..I guess her own personal artificial insemination...lol. Anyway, can that work being that it's been released from his body (for arguments sake) for 5 minutes? I feel dumb asking this which is why I told her get her own user name...lol. **LADIES (and gents), you know I am trying the "real" way" ....LMAO..hahaha.

Don't condoms (most of them) contain spermicide? If your friend actually did something as inconsiderate and terrible as that (basically behind the guys back which is awful and dishonest) I would think that it would be a low chance to get pregnant if it had spermicide, but again, there are wome who poke holes in those things and get pregnant...I say the chances are slim, but it is possible.

Wow, that is true. I didn't think about that-spermicide. She is the sneaky type, I 've known her since junior high and she has not changed...her life, not mine. I told her the consequences but a hard head makes a soft a$$, she'll learn when she falls on it.

Hilarious...I just think it is so awful when women deceive men like that. I have brothers...I would hate to have that happen to them. I would forever hate that women and never trust her if she was that sneaky to do that to my brother. But you are right, as long as that women doesn't come near our family, let her fall on her a__s and learn. Honestly, I feel it is so much better to be honest and clear and open with people...that is what brings you positive energy and luck...she is just begging to get puked on by life.

Hi! Just wanted to add my experience with this. I've done several IUIs and the doctor always had us collect the sperm sample in a sterile jar and bring it to him within an hour. Then he usually took another hour to process it while we waited. The first time we did it, they did a sperm count and about two and a half hours after it was collected, we were able to see moving happy sperm on the monitor they showed us for the count. It was neat that sperm could live in ambient air temperatures for that long.

Great feedback, Keeli. I myself have little confidence in the spermicide on the condom. It's there for advertising purposes. If you want spermicide that has a reasonable chance of doing its work, you need foam, film or insert. I share the sentiment about tricking a guy into fatherhood, but if you put your imagination to work there are several unconventional ways for a woman to get sperm to its destination.

Wow, Keeli, you cleared everything up. Thanks. So sperm CAN live outside the body for some time..ok. I never thought about spermicide like that before, it must be for advertising. That makes sense. Thanks!

LadyD, your friend is a horrible person for stealing her boyfriend's sperm like that. I hope you scolded her for such selfish and irresponsible actions. To be honest, I think that the honorable thing to do would be to tell her boyfriend and save him from getting trapped by her.

 

LadyD - June 12

Lin, they are made for each other. As wrong as it is for me to say, they are both pretty dumb. Sometimes they use condoms, sometimes they don't & he doesn't want anymore kids, he's still messing with his 1st 2 kids mom, and he was whooping her a--. I stay out of it because I tried to help her before & she took him back. You can't help someone that doesn't want to help themselves. I am just the shoulder to cry on.
