This might be a common since ? but I would still like others input....

Lets say my peak day (ovulating) was today but we were only able to have sex yesterday, would that sperm thats still in me from yesterday possibley be able to get me pregnant today? I always here that sperm can last up to 4 days but logically how many days does it last?

  • I have heard a "safe" guess was anywhere from 36 - 48 hours. My doc said that sperm could live up to 5 days but 2 days is a safe bet.

  • Yes and odds are you will have a girl. Male sperm swim faster and live a shorter amount of time, so all the boys have swam up and died off leaving mostly girl sperm.
