How Long Does Sperm Last In 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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Not long, few hours: However, they can survive about 5 days if they reach the fallopian tubes!See 1 more doctor answer
Sperm survival: It will probably depend upon the ph of the vagina. Close to 7, and sperm could live foe 3days.
It is said that sperm can stay inside vagina for up to 72 hours but is it actually unlikely to stay alive that long & actually impregnate?
Very short time: Often times the IUD itself creates a chemical or hormonal reaction inside the uterus which is immediately toxic to sperm. However, if a sperm gets through and fertilizes an egg, the IUD itself prevents the pregnancy (99% of the time) from implanting in the uterus.See 1 more doctor answer
