    Does anyone know how long sperm can live? I had read they can live 5 days but that seems too long!

    Hey, as far as I'm aware it's anything up to seven days, but obviously the chance of fertilisation decreases with each day. I found this out about a year ago when I discovered I missed a pill before me and my partner decided to TTC!

    Hope this helps!
