Hello doctor, I want to ask if sperm will die in my hands, what if I wash my hands using a hand sanitizer? Thank you in advance.

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. When talking about the age of sperm, the age of sperm outside the human body is very short. Without you even having to use a hand sanitizer, the sperm will die and rinse if you clean it using running water. So no need to use a hand sanitizer. Even if you feel your hands are still not clean, just use ordinary soap, although in the end it is still your right if you want to use a hand sanitizer.
For additional information, the process of pregnancy remains the highest potential by having sexual relations normally, namely by inserting the penis into the vagina. If your finger has sperm cells, then you put the finger in the vagina, the risk of pregnancy is very small, or almost non-existent. So, hopefully answering your question.
