    Yes I doubt very very very much that she's pregnant so don't worry. Are you in a long-term relationship with her?
    no, shes just a very good friend, and was all due to alcohol.

    Right ok, I was going to suggest that if you were in a relationship then maybe you could discuss an extra contraception i.e. the pill or the injection. I went on the injection a long time before we slept together and it just puts your mind at rest when these things happen. x x x

    If you withdrew before ejaculation there is still a chance, due to sperm that come out before ejaculation, that's one reason why that method is pretty ineffective. Although the chance is small.

    No, she's not pregnant. They "die" very quickly in open air.

    Has everyone ignored the link that was posted? Read it. Don't listen to people who think they know the facts - click on the link. Sprem can live up to a week in a woman and mostly lasts only a few hours in the open air. And axe wound is an awful name. xx

    even if its ejaculated say onto someone else??????
    72 hours is the time you have during which you can take the morning after pill.

    Outside it can't survive very long... I think it's a matter of hours.

    Surely she had a wash afterwards? It's not still there, is it?

    And if anyone uses the term 'axe wound' again in this way, I will go feminist on their ass.

    The 72 hours for the morning after pill is not to do with sperm survival though, that's the time in which you can stop implantation of a fertilised egg.

    72 hourss is indeed the time you can use the morning fater pill but as fot the life expectancy of sperm unless fertilisation occurs sperm can only live for 24 hours.
