Am I pregnant

If I used a sex toy that might have had sperm on it wil I get pregnant? I put rubbing alcohol on it.

Please explain what you mean "might had had sperm on it"?

Are you worried that, at one time, there was semen (containing sperm) on this object? Any dried semen would contain long dead sperm. Any rubbing alcohol would certainly clean the sex toy of any semen.

The only possible risk would be the introduction of WET semen on the sex toy into your vagina at the very time you would be ovulating.

I read somewhere that sperm can survive outside the body for a few days. I'm not sure where I read this, but it might be something you should find out

No, sperm cannot live outside the body. They need the right conditions. As soon as the seamen dries the sperm die.

What you may have read is that sperm can live inside a woman for several days because they have the right conditions - a warm, wet environment). Outside of the body, they are pretty short-lived. Sperm are fragile things ...
There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
