I found some condoms with wet semen inside...could you please tell me how old they could possibly be before the semen dries up inside?
Any help much appreciated.

I'm trying to understand the question.

Do you wish to use the wet semen to get pregnant? Thank you.

I am trying to work out how old some used condoms that I found in my fiancé and mines bedroom could possibly be...the semen is still liquid inside. According to my fiancé they are months old, is there any way that that could possibly be the case? They were untied and out in the open air. I just don't want to be a fool.
Thank you.

Semen exposed to the air will dry up fairly quickly, certainly within a day.

If the semen was sealed inside a rubber condom, it's hard to know just how long it could remain liquid. My guess would be less than 1 week, but I can't be certain about that.
