  • It can take up to 10 days. Sperm can live in the vagina for a long time.

  • it can take up to 3 days or it could happen right away if there is an egg waiting by the time the sperm reach the fallopian tubes then it is right away if not the sperm will wait until it comes or until they die off, and 5 days is the longest sperm can live in the body period end of story 10 days is silly.
