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.
"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.
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.
