Variable: Ejaculation into the vagina involves semen and live sperm. In a woman's body, live sperm can live for approximately 72 hours.
Dr. Neeoo Chin
Fertility Medicine 40 years experience
Short period of time: Sperm cannot usually survive in the vaginal canal for a long period of time due to the acidic environment of the vagina. Sperm is usually supported in the cervical mucus at ejaculation and that is where the majority of the sperm is allowed to enter into the uterine and reproductive tract.
