Where Do Sperm wait?

I know sperm can live up to 5 days after ejaculation..but where EXACTLY do they wait until ovulation if it isnt for another few days? in the cervix? or in the fallopian tube to immediately intercept the egg??

  • Usually fertilization occurs in the fallopian tube, and then the fertilized egg moves on into the uterus to implant. So the fallopian tubes for the most part. Though I would imagine there could be some hanging around in the uterus, too. I don't know if fertilization could happen at that point, but there could be sperm there.

  • the ones that live the longest are the slow swimmers. Female sperm are known as the slowest.
