It is not true that it dies when it touches air or IVF wouldn't work. It does die if the semen dries.

How long can sperm live in a condom?

If you're using a condom with a spermicidal lubricant, it kills some of the sperm but not 100%. If you're using a condom without spermicidal lubricant, then the sperm will live until the semen dries. This also depends on room temp and humidity. Bottom line guys: After you have sex, take the condom off and throw it away yourself. Don't trust her to do it for you or you might get a big surpise down the road. Once your partner takes it off and the air hits they are dead or if you use a spermicidal condom they die immediately. it doesn't once exposed to air it dies so it's no longer alive a condom has air pockets so wants the sperm comes out and the air hits it it dies .. (srry this is not my answer but im writing to the person who answered it ... first of all if a condom had air pockets theres no point in wearing one... if there were airpockets sperm can excape the condom ... nice try. and that's not always true because if so ... how to they to sperm donations ... sperm can live when the air hits it. until it drys it could still be alive.. if you don't know the answer don't write in on here and scare people.!! ) sperm does no live lond once air gets to it it is no longer acctive *********** In reality, sperm has a short life span outside of the body. Yes a spermacide will kill some of the sperm but it does not die when air hits it. Sperm can survive outside of the body for 10-15 minutes
