A 33-year-old member asked:

If a woman is sixty years old how long does the sperm last in the vagina?

Speculation: Likely not long at all. She would be menopausal ; thus not produce mucosal secretions allowing sperm to survive. However, there are no known scientific or research reports which could address this question, hence 'speculation'. 60-year-old women can not concieve although can get pregnant by ivf.

Varies: During non-ovulatory times, the vaginal environment along with the mucus is very hostile to sperm. Therefore the sperm does not survive for long.

Very short: The vagina is very acidic and is quite hostile to sperm. Sperm has to travel into the cervical mucus for survival. Without cervical mucus the sperm will die rapidly.
