Hi Jennifer09985

Thank you for your post!

There is no risk of pregnancy if the sperm was dry when you wore your underwear.
Dry sperm is dead sperm. If it wasn't dry there may be some small risk if it was placed directly where your vaginal opening would be but that seems a bit of a stretch.

Hi Jennifer

This is not something a percentage could be given for. I'd just be guessing. But if the underwear was dry, my guess would be that your risk is near zero.

Hi Jennifer

That would depend on the conditions but sperm dies about 5-20 mins outside the body. It's not an exact science but that is considered to be about right.

We can't make those kind of statements definitively- you were there, we were not! But I would say that the odds are your underwear was dry and you were safe.
