How Long Does Sperm Live Inside You
Sperm life: Sperm lives at least 48 hours, often 72, sometimes even longer -in the cervical canal. Sperm dies quickly in the vagina, which is one reason poorly motile sperm have fertility issues. Btw, the egg/oocyte really only has between 1-24 hours survival when it can be fertilized.See 1 more doctor answer

3-4 days, up to 10: Studies have shown that sperm can get up into the fallopian tubes within three minutes of ejaculation in the vagina. Although the egg lives for 12-24 hrs, sperm swim from the vagina into the cervical mucous and live for 3-4 days and "shower" the fallopian tube during that period. Any one time 100-200 sperm can can found in the fallopian tube. Studies show sperm can live up to 10 days but uncommon.See 2 more doctor answers

Cervical mucus: In normal mucus, sperm can live for 24-48 hours. I'm not sure what you mean by 'infertile mucus'. If the cervical mucus is abnormal, sperm survival would be shorter. The best thing to do is to evaluate the mucus and, if it's abnormal, determine the cause and treatment.
