It is possible for sperm to live for up to three days inside the women. For those three days, if they live, they are "swimmimg" towards the egg. Very few will last three days, if any. But yes, it's true.

Yes it is possible as sperm can live inside the female for a few days. As long as the sperm is still alive by ovulation, you can get pregnant. That is why days 10 - 15 are known as the fertile period.

Sperm can live in the female body for up to seven days, on average 3 - 4 days, so if you have sex before you ovulate, but then ovulate a few days later, the sperm may be alive and result in pregnancy.

Sperm can typically live about 3 days in the female reproductive tract.

The egg stays fertile for only 12-24 hours. Sperm can stay alive for up to 5 days so it is possible to get pregnant if you have sex before ovulation.

"Male" sperm can live up to 3 days, "female" sperm live longer, up to 5 days. At ovulation, your egg is released and takes about 12-24 hours to get to the fallopian tubes, where the sperm is waiting for it and it gets fertilized. So to give the male sperm enough time to die off but not so much time that the female sperm dies too, you need to stop having sex 4 days before the date of ovulation. Then the only sperm still alive in there are female sperm. But be sure to have lots of sex up to that 4-day cutoff, so there's plenty of healthy sperm.

Sperm can live inside the female body for up to 5 days. Many of the sperm die off after 24 to 48 hours though.

They can live in the uterus 5-6 days.

The male sperm is thought to travel faster than the female sperm, however it is said that the male sperm expires faster than the female sperm. That is why some conception methods tell couples to have sex a few days before ovulation if they are wanting to have a girl, that way they are more likely to conceive with the longer-living female (X) sperm by the time the woman ovulates.

Sperm ejaculated into a woman's vagina remain alive for three to seven days. Sperm ejaculated outside the body can survive normally until the semen that contains it dries. Depending on surface and temperature, determines the life of the sperm.

They are not in the cervix, they have swam into the uterus where they stay up to 5 days until they die. The discharge wash them out.

User Avatar

I have read 5 days and I have read up to 7 days. So to be safe I would go with 7 days.

It depends on the heath of the sperm and the conditions in the uterus but most experts seem to agree on 2 to 7 days.
