I had sperm on my hand, after I did not wash my hands but I wiped it of. I then changed my clothes, and put sunscreen on. If my hands were dry could there still be live sperm?

Hi Leah,

First of all, please don't bump your question by making another post. As we make clear in our guidelines, we ask people not to do that unless 24 hours or more have gone by without getting a response.

Could you please look back at the conversation you had with Joey in your last thread, as well as the article you were provided to find the answer to your question? You have already been given the information you need to be able to figure out whether this is a pregnancy risk or not.

Hi sorry I did not know making another comment would bump it up.
In that article it said if the fluid came In contact with it there could be a risk. Although my hands felt completely dry I saw where sperm can still take awhile to die off even if dry. Is that true? I was just wondering if my hand was completely dry that the sperm would be for sure dead? Or if the sunscreen defiantly killed it while I was putting it on.

Hey, Leah: again, as we make clear in the guidelines, please don't bump a post unless you have waited more than 24 hours for an answer.

You can be certain that if your hand was dry, there wasn't fluid on it for there to be an issue. If there was fluid on your hands, they would not have been dry.
