Dear DMC,

How long sperm lasts after ejaculation depends on the environment the sperm finds itself after it is ejaculated. Sperm ejaculated into a woman's vagina lives in the mucus of the cervix and are able to fertilize an egg for three to five days. Sperm ejaculated outside the body usually live only a few hours.

can sperm go through materials? like underwear? If a guy rubs his penis on me and i' m wearing panties, could i get pregnant?
