Say there were dry sperm on someone's hand and it came in contact with a vaginal hole. Could it cause pregnancy?

Hi Anon,

Thank you for your question.

Once semen is dry it can not cause pregnancy. Again, once the air hits it and it dries, it is rendered useless, even when coming in contact with a vagina.

I hope this helps.
