Can I get Pregnant from Sperm Exposed in Air? What are the chances?

Last Updated - Fri, Mar 16 2018

Similar Questions - Pregnancy from exposed sperm, how long can sperm survive in air?

Detailed Question:

Day before yesterday I was having rough & unprotected sex with my husband, at the end of it he ejaculated on my belly. There was a lot of sperm fluid I guess. After some time the semen entered my vagina. 

Can I get pregnancy like this? Can pregnancy be caused by sperm exposed in air and then entering my vagina? What are the chances?

Should I take some pills or something for pregnancy?

Sperm exposed to the air has no chances of survival or cause pregnancy. 

However, in the situation you describe if no protection, barrier or other contraceptive means was used, then any pre-ejaculate (fluid from the male penis) can also contain spermatic fluid which is still capable of fertilization and hence pregnancy. 

It is always advised to use contraception for this purpose by either of the partners, and henceforth you should always use it to prevent future risk. Also for the time-being an emergency contraceptive can be taken if it has been less than 5 days since this episode. 

Otherwise, you will need to wait till your next period and if late by 1 week, test yourself using home urine pregnancy test kits with the first morning sample to be sure.
