Anyone know about sperm life???


Hi all,

I basically would like to know if anyone has any idea how long sperm can survive inside. My Fiance is going away for a week and I ovulate 2/3 days after he goes .

Hoping I don't have right this month off already

BD at the very last second possible - like right before he heads out the door. I've read sperm can live for several days - that's exceptional - but for most sperm it's more like 3 days. And it's the sperm that actually makes it to the fallopian tubes that survive that long because conditions in the tubes are perfect for them.
