I need some help please!!! Can washing your hands with cold water kill sperm alone and then drying your hands with a towel does this kill sperm?? If a girl is fingered after sperm has been washed off is she at risk of pregnancy

Hi Anon,

Thank you for reaching out to EmpowHER with your question!

When sperm is in the air, it cannot survive. Actual intercourse must occur for pregnancy to be possible. With the situation you have described, pregnancy is not possible. I hope this eases some fears!
