Less than 90 minutes: Usually you want to get the sperm out of the semen by 60 minutes, but as long as the temperature is moderate, sperm can survive 60-90 minutes. Once taken out of the semen, sperm can survive a long time in media. In the cervix or uterus, sperm last 3-5 days while in the vagina about 1 hour!

If a man's sperm is clear is he sterile?

If a man's sperm is clear is he sterile?

Less likely: A semen sample contains sperm as well as fluid and other proteins. These will sometimes contribute to the clarity of a sample. In general after washing the cloudier a sperm sample is the higher the sperm count. But, I would not count on the clearness to determine if a man is sterile without looking under a microscope.

My husband and I have a personal donor and we would like to know how long sperm can last in a cup once ejaculated. We are wanting to do a home insemination?

Viable sperm: Sperm stops being motile and dies within minutes or as soon as it dries out when not in the vagina. Experts in a fertility clinic can advise you best about this matter, however.

I'm having a guy bring me his sperm in a cup to put in my vagina. Too get pregnant. How long will the semen be good in a bottle?

I'm having a guy bring me his sperm in a cup to put in my vagina. Too get pregnant. How long will the semen be good in a bottle?

Here are some...: First, one needs to know the quality of semen such as count, concentration, motility, & shape of sperms; second, how the semen is collected & preserved. With so many unknown features, no one can say how long the sperms in semen may survive although the sperms from ejaculated semen inside the vagina may live for 3-5 days. So, seek counseling & I would advise trying not to do self-insemination.

How long can sperm live in latex condom?

Here are some. ..: Good Q but I doubt if being studied to answer your question. But based on the fastidious requirements for sperm survival, I guess sperms would not live longer than one day in considering the change of temperature, possible presence of spermicidal agents in some condom, natural degrading of semen, etc., making sperms less likely to survive long. I hope these info feeding your curiosity and concern

How long can sperm live for? And can sperm survive during a period?

How long can sperm live for? And can sperm survive during a period?

4-5 days and no: When sperm are deposited into the vagina they quickly move into the cervical mucus to avoid the acid ph of the vagina. Once in the cervical mucus the sperm swim through to the uterus and up to the egg over the next few days. Good cervical mucus is usually only present for 1-3 days before ovulation. After ovulation the mucus is thick and during a period the mucus is gone.
