A condom's primary function is not to kill, but to block the semen from progressing into the womans vagina; however, there are condoms that are coated in a spermicidal fluid that will kill the semen on contact without harming you or the other party. Such contraceptive measure though, do not guarantee the prevention of STD's. Take care, and stay safe.

If you use a spermicidal condom does some of the spermicide from the condom remain inside the female for a little while or does it just stop killing sperm one the condom is taken out of the female?

Some of the spermicide will remain in the female but not enough to protect against pregnancy once the condom is removed. Spermicidal condoms are being criticized for reducing protection against STDs--the spermicide makes cell membranes less resistant to infections.
