Hi Priya
Welcome to HCM
The sperm remains viable in female genital tract for 3 days around which if ovulation takes place it results in pregnancy.
It is highly unlikely for it to remain viable for 12 days and to cause pregnancy in your case if no fresh intercourse occured after that.
Hope I have answered your query
Thank you
