Only males have sperm. There is no such thing as female sperm.

It can take 12 - 72 hours for human sperm to reach the egg.

It has a long tail that helps it swim easily to reach the ovum, It has a pointed tip in the head of the sperm which allows it to effectively enter the ovum.

It usually takes between 3-5 days for Sperm to reach & fertilize the egg.

I've heard that if the sperm do no reach their target - the unfertilised egg within 3 days, they die

To reach the vagina, during normal sex is immediately, being the penis is inside the vagina when ejaculation occurs. I'm sure the question means to read how long does sperm take to reach an ovum, aka egg, that can take a few hours. Sperm live for up to 72 hours incase an egg has not been released by the ovaries yet. Hope this helps.

Fast-swimming sperm can reach the egg in a half an hour, while others may take days. The sperm can live up to 48-72 hours.

Sometimes a few seconds, sometimes a few days. It depends how fast the sperm is and how far along in the menstrual cycle the woman is

Technically no -- it has to reach the ovum. However, if semen containing live sperm contact the labia, it's not a long swim from there, and you should consider the possibility of pregnancy.

If an ovum is in the Fallopian tube, meaning you have already ovulated, then the process of fertilization {sperm meeting egg) can begin as soon as 30 minutes after unprotected intercourse or failed contraception (example: broken condom, dislodged diaphragm/cap).

It takes a few hours to reach it, and then about 20-30 minutes for a group of sperm to break down the outer membrane of the egg so one can fertilize it.

As long as he produces the active male gamete cell (sperm) and physically make it possible for the sperm to reach the ovary and fertilize the ova in the female.

How long does male sperm live

well, the sperm can last up to 3 days inside a women. so around 3 days, but sometimes it dies before it can even reach it. :)

Outside the body 10 min at most. In the uterus 5-6 days. The answer depends on a number of factors. On a dry surface sperm are dead by the time the semen has dried. In water sperm will live longer. Inside a woman's body, sperm can live for up to five days. If you have unprotected sex even a few days before your partner ovulates, there is a chance of a pregnancy.

You should never have unprotected sex. I am also unsure as to what you mean in saying "how long". Exactly what is it that you are waiting on?

Saliva and Sperm It is the job of saliva to break down foreign particles in your mouth, whether that be food, bacteria or sperm.SO basically a small amount of sperm won't last very long with a large amount of saliva; but a large quantity of sperm will be able to better protect the innermost sperm- the same is true with vaginal fluids- Vaginal fluids are slightly acidic to protect the women and kill foreign substances. Many sperm die on their journey to reach the egg, it is the strong protected sperm in the middle that are able to last the whole journey and reach the end goal successfully. Dr. Amos from had this to say on the topic: "....most studies show that saliva can have a negative effect on sperm. If he has enough sperms then it's unlikely to make a major difference, but if he has a low sperm count then you need every single sperm."

You can take an EC (emergency contraception) pill. If you've waited more than 48 hours, then it may be too late to do anything. You should take EC within the first 24 hours. there is a method called plan b or the morning after pill. you take it after unprotected intercourse. It has to be before 72 hours

Sperm have long tails so they can swim vertically to fertilize the egg.

Chlamydia does not affect how long sperm can live in a woman.

Sperm has no effect on how long you can run.
