Hello! My name isXXXXX and I will be happy to assist you today.
This is a tough question to answer because this would all depend on the environment that the semen was in. For example, if there was a lot of semen this would obviously take longer than a small amount to dry out. It can take up to days for this to occur and there is no way to say "exactly" how long would be appropriate. It would also depend on the type of condom it was in and how tightly it was sealed. . .again, there are no studies I am aware of that have tested this reliably.
If your concern is sperm living. . .sperm can live for a couple of days. Outside of the body, they can only live for about an hour or so but if the semen is wet this lifespan can be extended.
Hope you found this helpful. . .I'm not quite sure how to better answer your question because there is no data on it.
Take care. Please click accept for my time. Thanks.
1) yes I would say that is typical... by 5 days+ the sperm should be mostly dead (over 90% of them)
2) Yes, this amount of semen is normal for a healthy male.

It's very hard to clarify this question mainly because I can't be more specific. . .let me see if this will help:
A: At 5+ days after intercourse, it is still possible to have some liquid semen inside a condom that has been left open on a floor.
B: This is considered a normal amount of semen. . .I don't think it is unusual.
Is there anything else that I can clarify?
