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?

In brief: 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.
