wow. i have no idea. but ive heard sperm can stay alive inside of you for 3 days... It only takes about 45 minutes. So my suggestion for falling preg is to stay laying down for about this amount of time. Yes, sperm can live up to 3 days inside a woman. But once the egg is fertalized, it takes about 5 days for it to travel down the tube and to implant itself into the uturus.

It takes 10 hours approximately. For a sperm or the "sperms" to swim toward the egg, I've seen this in Discovery channel the "in the womb" program.

If healthy sperm get beyond the cervix into the uterus and up to the fallopian tubes, they can live as long as 5-7 days after ejaculation. On average, though, sperm live about 3-4 days once they've made it all the way to the fallopian tubes, where fertilization takes place. (A woman's egg, on the other hand, is viable for only about one day once it leaves the ovary.) FOR MORE ON THIS YOU SHOULD VISIT WWW.MOMMIESONLY.COM

It takes about a week for the egg to move through the fallopian tubes. An egg can live outside of the fallopian tubes for 12 to 24 hours.

Up to four hours, outside the body, but for a up to a few days after intercourse, inside the vaginal vault, cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes.
